    I am so proud to be a UT Longhorn because of the amazing people and academic rigor of the curriculum. UT represents people from all walks of life, and you can always find an organization to join in order to make friends and pursue your passions. "What starts here changes the world" doesn't seem impossible once you meet the students and faculty at this university.

    The University of Texas at Austin is an academically rigorous institution, which means that regardless of your major or academic interests, you'll always be challenged to maximize your potential as as student. There are quite literally hundreds of student organizations and clubs, ranging from academic clubs, professional development (career) organizations, and hobby/interest clubs that are meant for meeting new people and making new friends. All in all, being a sophomore at UT, I'm incredibly satisfied with the academic and social opportunities the university provides.

    My time so far at The University of Texas at Austin has been filled with nothing but amazing people and amazing memories. All of the professors and admin there are fully dedicated to helping you achieve your goals and push you past your limits. There are so many clubs/organizations here that will help you find what you're passionate about and so many activities outside of campus to keep you busy!

    The campus is beautiful and the pride by Longhorns brings vividness to the institution. It is a large campus that will require a lot of walking; however, there are numerous maps that can guide you. The university definitely lives up to its prestigious name.

    UT is a nice school and is situated in Austin, which provides plenty of opportunities for students. However, it seems as if it is harder and harder to get in each year.
