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.

    UT Austin challenges students in every single class, but in a way that is possible to succeed. The opportunities here are endless including volunteering and research. It's prestigious, but students have a lot of fun here as well.

    whether you are looking for a quiet study session in the library or a cozy corner in the union, for a suntan and a guitar song on the lawn, a professor in a three-piece suit in an auditorium or a professor wearing sandals and a hawaiian shirt who wants to hold class outside, this is the university for you. although some of the classes are large (over 100 students), these lectures are accompanied by smaller groupings with the ta for deep discussions, and close-knit peer groups abound as you hone in on your major. as their slogan (what starts here changes the world) promises, i came to ut having never left the united states, and when i graduated, i left with a one-way ticket to the adventure of a lifetime teaching english in russia.

    this school seems like an amazing prospect. my only concern is the cost as it may be the only thing that will prevent me from attending. other than that ut is a school with a rich history with a nice location close to the state capital and great views.
