    Austin is a crazy big, awesome, spirited city! There are an endless amount of things to do for fun. Austin has music festivals regularly, and music plays a major part in the city's image. There are several museums right on UT's campus, so one is never short on the opportunity to be cultured here.

    It's Austin so there's plenty of music scenes, parks, museums, and countless of volunteer opportunities. Take advantage!

    Artistic expression is a central theme in Austin with their various music festivals (ACL, FFFfest, SXSW, etc.). With your UT ID you can take the Austin buses pretty much anywhere so finding a way to Zilker Park, Whole Foods, or Magnolia Cafe shouldn't be a problem. Food truck parks are also a fun thing to experience in Austin, because they supply a plethora of types of treats to try.

    Austin is great. I've been living here for several years so I know what's around town and I feel like a lot of UT students from out of town never really leave campus since everything they need is right there. There's paddle boarding, canoeing, kayaking, and all that on Town Lake. You can go zip-lining and hiking on Mount Bonnell. There's a lot of unique food places you can check out. We have Zilker park, ACL, SXSW, Fun Fun Fun fest, a bridge with bats that come out at night, and 6th street is great for a night out.

    There are outdoor activities such as hiking and kayaking for the nature/sporty people. The nightlife is active with Dirty 6th, and there's everything in between

    Joining clubs is fun, because there are so many difficult clubs available, one of them has to appeal to your activities or interests.

    Join clubs/organizations! The easiest way to get through life is to have a group of friends that you genuinely have fun being around. College is stressful, so take a load off and go bowling or watch a movie at the campus Union building.

    There is so much to do for fun. I personally enjoy going to the music concerts around the campus and town. There is always music going on around the city of Austin. Plenty of it is free if you search hard enough. You could potentially go to a concert every night if desired. I could wax on much longer about the duck tours, stand up paddle boarding, natural springs, sporting events, yoga, etc. that you can find here on campus and off; however, you have a college to apply to :)
