    Austin is such a lively city! There are so many things I have yet to do! For fun my friends and I will ride those red bikes (they are free for UT students) around the city, go check out the capitol, visit graffiti park, go to South Congress (SoCo), and go to 6th street (which is not all it's hyped up to be, but still fun & that's where voodoo doughnuts is, a must!!). Also if you want to go to the movies you should go to the Bullock Museum theatre at least once! This theatre is literally across the street from UT (within a 5 min walk from my dorm) and it was amazing. It has the largest screen in the state (go big or go home) and presents the films in IMAX and 3-D. Such a great experience, but you have to get there super early!! The line gets long.

    You're in Austin! There's city life everywhere. Food trucks and live music all over the place.

    UT Austin is such a great school in the sense of balancing fun outside campus and academics. The outdoor activities in Austin are very fun, such as paddle-boarding on Lake Travis or visiting the graffiti park. The unique and delicious food trucks are also a huge draw.

    Austin is a vibrant city with much to do. Whether you like boating, eating, or partying, the great city has it all. I’ve personally enjoyed kayaking and floating on the Brazos River. In addition, I’m a big foodie so searching for new cuisine is always exciting. Lastly, for all my party-goers, 6th street is a fun and wild time. There are lots of establishments with personalities that range from calm to lively. If you’re looking to receive a great education while having the time of your life, then UT is a good choice.

    Austin is a great city to spend outdoors and to explore new places! Can find places to go kayaking and at some places it free for ut students. UT always has events to attend. They sometimes bring animals for student to hang out with; such as guinea pigs, camels, calves, kangaroos, hedgehogs, rabbits, chicks. Have live music sometimes.

    Movies, parks, music, performances are daily. There are many on campus activities for when you actually have time to break from your studies. The best times will be with your friends when your not at the pools, tennis courts, workout centers, racket ball courts, yoga classes, or one of the many on campus clubs one can join. No Limits, your parents will never know.

    Literally, every week there is something going on. I get emails every week with things students can attend, both academic and recreational related. Your not bored, unless you want to be. Plus I live in the heart of Austin, which is explorable, artsy, and the music capital of the world. Across from my dorm there is a hangout that performs live music every week or so.

    There's always things to do on campus. Organizations are always holding socials or have booths set up around campus. The Texas Union shows old movies on Wednesday and newer movies on Thursday. Different speakers are always on campus. So, you'll never run out of things to do.

    Underneath The Union is a bowling alley and pool hall. It is incredibly cheap and fun if you want to have some wholesome fun. Down passed the river, is Peter Pan golf, which is another activity for people not looking to get crazy. Of course there is 6th street, and wonderful food downtown. There are also tons of free music events going on. Pluckers on Rio Grande has a lot of events as well.
