    I love the University of Texas at Austin! It is in the State Capitol city of Texas. Austin is a place filled with much culture (e.g.: music, art, food, etc.) Even with school being the first priority while I am in Austin, I am able to encounter this culture and diversity daily because of the multiplicity of the kinds of people who teach, attend and visit the University. I have had the chance to explore new music here at the University of Texas—specifically a class I took at the University called “Jazz Appreciation.” As cliché as it may sound, I left with a sincere appreciation and love for jazz and many other types of music. I have also met many people and I have been to my share of gatherings with friends. It is important to go out and have fun—places like 6th Street, South Congress, Guadalupe, even the movie theater are awesome places to get out and get your mind off of school for a bit and relax. Try new restaurants, bars, or even just walk around Austin to see what awesome things you can encounter. College is not all about learning in the classroom, but also among others in fun, social gatherings outside of class.

    As a sorority girl, there's definitely a huge social side to UT that's lost at other universities (ahem, Rice). I'm also in Student Government, participate in a Bible Study, and play IM volleyball. I'm enjoying every moment away from my parents :) The classes are actually a lot of fun, too.
