Going Greek – The Greek life at UT is a huge part of life. The shirts and styles are evident in every situation. Parties, though, do not rely on the Greek life. There is plenty of Greek housing, which is very safe especially for sororities. Most non-Greek students just ignore the fact of the Greek life because it doesn't effect them.

Hook 'Em Horns! The spirit of UT spreads out from the school and reaches every corner of Texas. Students get discounted tickets, and keep the atmosphere exciting. The entire stadium is filled, loud, and proud. The team keeps the game itself exciting, and the fans are full of support even after a loss.

Love the School, Through Thick and Thin. I love UT. I cannot say, or think, it enough. It has not been an easy road though. The university holds it's students to very high standard and meeting those standards is a real struggle, especially for students fresh out of high school. So maintaining both a good social and academic life depends on how well you can manage your time. Overall, I love the university. I cannot have made a better choice in selecting a university. The University of Texas is where I belong and I'm always happy to go back.

People at UT – The University of Texas is diverse and I love it. People are diverse in race, culture, religion, and so much more. I met people from Kenya, Germany, France, Saudi Arabia, and Mexico this semester alone. And with so many different people, there are many different ways of life. I'm not sure if I can say anything more than to not expect people to be the same.

Eating on Campus – There are several dining halls on campus and they are all really good. However, after a while, it gets tiring to eat the same food everyday. So if a student has decided to live on campus, they will sometimes rely on the restaurants around campus for food. The university's meal plan for students that live on campus provides students with a fixed amount that they cannot spend anywhere but on campus, and a fixed amount they can spend around campus. This allows students to have variety in their meals.

Texas has a little bit of everything. The food on campus is decent, and the food off campus is great, fairly priced and really close to the main campus. You won't have transportation issues if you don't have a car because with your UT ID you can get anywhere in Austin with the Capital Metro Bus System. Football is definitely a big part of the culture at Texas, but we're proud of and support our other sports programs too. Oh and if you're in band, you're awesome, and will finally get the appreciation you deserve. The music scene on and around campus is great. If your more interested in seeing lectures from big names like Bill Moyers, there's a place for you too. If there's something you think is missing from Austin you can start it yourself.

Downtown Austin Here I Come – Nightlife in Austin has plenty of options. Of course there's 6th Street, but unless you're 21 there aren't many options to go inside the clubs. However there are many different places to go such as Halcyon, the great restaurant scene on South Congress, and plenty of clubs for underage people like Midnight Rodeo. Whatever you want to do you'll find it in Austin.

There Are Plenty of Options! Depending on what you want you can more than likely find it in Austin. The Block, The Quarters, J26, Rio21, The Towers, SRD, and Harden House are just a few of the Many options available to students who want to live off campus. Pricing depends of which housing company you go with but generally J26, The Block, and the Quarters are fairly priced. SRD and Harden House are girls only dorms, and are pricey, but they offer a great sense of community. A lot of girls looking to be in a sorority generally room in these dorms, but even if you're not in a sorority you'll feel welcome. Rio21 is also pricey, but offers a quiet place to study and come home to. Most all of these apartments and private dorms are very close to the campus for convenience.

First Year-UGS – Most Students are required to take an First Year Undergraduate studies course. The course helped me adjust to UT by giving me information on campus resources. In addition I made alot of friends there.

Its Like I Am at Home! I always feel safe on campus, it is always very well lit and the people are extremely nice. You can find police phones like every few feet and were something to happen to you on campus, help is usually quick to find. I have walked back to my dorm from across campus at 3-4 in the morning a lot of times, and I have never been scared. Austin has a great atmosphere.

It's Austin! Austin has an amazing nightlife in general. There is always a show or a party or a late night movie to go to. West Campus is great for the frat scene and even has a free bus that takes you and picks you up from downtown.

Computer Labs – There are several huge libraries on campus with computer labs. Also, almost every department has a building with a small computer lab in it. The only time I ever had trouble finding a computer was during finals but everyone was understanding and willing to share.

Greek Life at UT Austin is alive and kicking, but that's not the only thing that's out there for UT students. Greek life is well known and a good majority of students are apart of these fraternities and sororities. Students that are in these groups wear their letters on T-shirts, jackets and even on car decals. Housing is available to these students. Greek houses are located very close to campus and provide these students with a place to stay, eat and even hold social gatherings.

I feel that UT Austin is not only in a big city with a diverse amount of people, but the school itself takes students from all over the world to learn and have a great education at this school. Acceptance among the students is learned the minute you walk in the door. I've learned that kids are brought up from different backgrounds, are from an immense amount of countries/states, and even have a number of values, beliefs and religions. There are multiple organizations on campus and even off that students are welcomed to join and I feel any person would fit right in somewhere especially to make this 50,000+ school seem a lot smaller and more friendly.

Safety on UT Austin Campus – I believe that UT Austins Campus is very safe. They have provided a safe and comfortable environment on the daily basis and on multiple occasions, especially when the campus was under a lock-down. We also have a program called SureWalk that provides late night safe walks if you don't feel safe/comfortable walking. Not only is there that, but as well as multiple police call buttons that are dispersed all around campus for you to push if you were ever in a dangerous situation.

There are alot of fun things to do at night. There is a bowling alley and pool tables located on campus which is open late. Plenty of parties and clubs for underage students. There is always something to do at night.

The Greeks Are There and You Know Who They Are – I feel that the Greek life can become a part of your life if you make it. UT Austin is such a big campus that you can really become a part of any small group and it can seem like your world. There are a huge number of students in Greek organizations but there are also a larger number who have not pledged. Greeks are known as having a lot to balance. The Greek housing consists mostly of houses which are not too shabby.

Health & Safety:
Austin Is Relatively Safe – For the most part, there are many police cars on campus. The area around campus is a hub for people looking for unique restaurants and shops, so cops roam the populated pedestrian area. There are frequent "police help" posts almost at every corner in case of emergencies.
College Junior 2011-12-21T00:44:01Z
Austin Is a Diverse City – The University of Texas at Austin is located in the heart of Austin, right outside downtown. There is plenty of activities on Guadalupe Street, fondly called "The Drag", which borders the North side of campus. The Drag includes shops, restaurants, and cafes. The diversity of cultures and styles Austin has to offer seems limitless. Known for its "hipster" style, Austin never fails to allow you to experience something knew everyday.

My Version – i don't have off campus housing so i really cant give a review on it but from what i hear its way cheaper then on-campus and the farther from campus the cheaper it is. Apartment like riverside go for $400 a month utilities included

Austin in general is very liberal and accepting of other cultures or beliefs. There are a variety of churches near campus, including a Church of Scientology.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
