The computer labs tend to be crowded due to large number of students at UT. The printing facilities are good but at times, it takes a toll to find color printing when needed. Apart from that, the internet speed is pretty good and has widespread coverage. A personal computer is needed simply to make things more convenient and easier rather than depending on busy computer labs to finish off work.
Off-campus housing such as apartments tend to be a lot cheaper but then also have the possibility of being a little far from campus so people have to walk a lot more.
There are some very good and some average options available. The cost is pretty cheap but some places tend to be more expensive than the others. As far as I know, none of the dining places provide any student discounts. Some good places to check out are Trudy's, Kismet Cafe, Kerby Lane, etc.
On campus, it is hardly visible but a good number of students drink socially. This does not mean getting drunk but just to socialize among friends and other people. No one pressurizes anyone else to drink or any such thing so that is something good!
Transportation is very good and convenient. There is a bus running around the perimeter of the campus throughout the day and its free! Moreover, there are other city buses going through campus which can be used by students to travel for classes for free again! Its very economical, convenient and needed.
To interact and contribute on College Prowler, registration is required. Don't worry, it's free, secure, and only takes a few minutes.Close
