    OMG everything. Austin is so cool, you can do anything you want. But mostly, the music scene is amazing. Try to get down to Antone's for a show, or even go on campus to the Cactus Cafe for live music.

    There's just so much to do for fun that's it's actually hard choosing what's the best to do. There are several organizations and clubs offered throughout campus that each do something different. Austin also has beautiful places to go hiking/visiting such as Mt. Bonnell. We're also renowned for our music shows. You can go laser tagging at Blazer Tag. If you're a party person the 6th Street is for you. If you love the theater, then you can go watch several plays/musicals performed by students and even some professional actors that travel to do their shows across the nation. Regardless of what you like, I'm sure you'll find it at UT!

    If you check on UT Calendar, there will always be some event going on. Take the chance to go to seminars, plays, and other social event that you are even remotely interested in because there is so much to learn on your own.

    Joining an organization is definitely ideal because they have many events and help you make friends. However, Austin is a great place for outdoor fun as well as partying. 6th street is fun, but if you're not 21 yet, West Campus always has parties going on. Also, hiking, biking, and swimming are good ways to explore Austin.

    there is always something going on, from sports to parties. not only that, because the campus is so large, it is often host to major events, like national-level swim competitions (i saw ryan lochte and michael phelps! up close!) very cool. and if you want to leave campus, there are so many things nearby in austin - good restaurants, live music events (acl, sxsw and many others), the lakes, close to so many state parks! really nice, since it's outdoor weather pretty much year round.

    there are plenty of fun activities on campus, but i definitely recommend heading to the river for some canoeing. it's also nice to swim at barton springs, which stays comfortable year round. and if you're into the party scene, there are hundreds of concerts going on across the city every night, from local, national, and international artists. there are also city-wide music festivals like sxsw. although these have been getting pretty pricey, the rest of the city participates in little ways as well, so you never really miss out.
