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...

    Rich with tradition, success, and culture, the University of Texas at Austin has an amazing community bringing all students together. Besides Longhorn pride, the location in the beautiful and diverse city of Austin is ideal for any types of student due to the variety of things to do. It is the perfect mix between academic rigor and social opportunities.

    Incredible culture, wonderful education opportunities, lovely campus. I've toured UT more than once (two general tours, a tour of the engineering school, and a tour of the nursing school). Each visit never fails to impress me and make me look forward to a potential future here.

    After my acceptance letter, my ego has quadrupled! The validation I have received from all departments on campus is so positive. From our family orientation to signing my housing contract, have all gone as promised with constant support and confirmation. All calls with personal questions have been answered quickly. When meeting other students in the college of fine arts, I was immediately welcomed in, given contact names of students that could support me in my specific pursuits, and reassurance that my decision to go to UT Austin was perfect. I am looking so forward to August move in that for the first time ever I want summer to go by fast. Hook'em Horns!

    The University of Texas at Austin is a great school which is significantly diverse student body. The 40 acre school in central Austin provides most services within walking distance from the campus dorms and off campus dorms. Parking is available, however $1000 per year is expensive for the average undergraduate.

    UT is ranked one of the best schools in the country, I can attest that. Since I got here everyone has been saying take advantage of the many resources on campus from things like improving your resume to personal student needs. For that reason alone, it is true, resources offered on campus are easy to access, and the staff their to help are effective and devoted to all who come to them.
