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 at Austin is a wonderful school with a diverse group of students. There is so much to do here whether it be academic or just a social gathering. You must at least go to one event because it will be a great experience.

    I would not recommend going to the Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program unless you are really certain that you are at the top of the game in terms of doing research, and this can be verified by at least several years of doing research. In my experience, the Program accepted a lot of people. Only the people who were at the absolute top of the game were treated decently, from my viewing, while many other graduate students were treated in ways that were harmful to them, and because I witnessed this, I do not think the Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program at the University of Texas at Austin has the best interests of the students in mind.

    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.
