1. As a student at UT, you should always join at least one club. This way you can get to know at least a small amount of people. If you're in a tight knit club then you'll end up going places, like parties, together. 2. Don't be afraid to approach people in you classes and introduce yourself. It's always good to have at least one friend in each class. 3. Create study groups with friends and study ahead of time before you go out and party that way you don't fall behind in your school work. 4. Go to your...

    As a freshmen, there is so much to available to delve into and its kinda scary at first. When you find your niche, the university is much more accessible and is easier to call a home. So far, the academics have been great - passionate teachers available to caring students.

    It is an awesome school. Very frat oriented, but the schools spirit is there and uplifting. The fact that you are in the city of Austin alone is a good enough reason to attend this school.

    UT Austin is home to an amazing faculty and community of students. They have some of the nation's top programs, and I think this university is totally underrated. I don't regret going here one bit.

    The University of Texas at Austin is perhaps THE most underrated university in the United States, especially in the realm of STEM. The campus is absolutely gorgeous, and while the tradeoff for such a large university existing in a rather small area is horrible parking, the closeness of everything shortens walking distances and truly makes one feel at home. Either way, any point on the campus is just a stone's throw away from beautiful downtown Austin.

    After looking into this school, I love that size and diversity they have to offer. There are so many degrees, clubs, and people which offer tons of opprotunites. The campus also looks amazing.

    The campus is beautiful, vibrant, and big big big! (I almost got lost one time) The tuition is great for the quality of education, both in-state and out-of-state. The general atmosphere is that of a typical urban college town, submerged in one of the best/healthiest cities in America.

    A beautiful campus with lots of history and pride in one of the most accepting and diverse places in the south. The dorms are overpriced but the tuition for in-state is great! The students are really friendly here.

    This campus looks really pretty. I just recently got interested to go to UTAustin, but I'm afraid I'm not smart enough.
