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.

    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.

    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.
