What Students Are Saying

3.95 Average Rating
Once you get here, get involved! Do not be intimidated; everyone truly wants you to get involved. When you have classes, do not be afraid to talk/ask your professor anything. Get out of your shell - meet others. Keep up with your grades... even though Austin offers a lot of freedom and opportunity, especially with Barton Springs right down the street, do not neglect your school work. A big tip I personally can share is make sure you park in the correct area and always display your parking tag.

For prospective students, definitely make time to visit campus. Visiting campus allows you to get a better feel for what the university has to offer. Plan to at least sit in on a class or do an overnight stay to see how comfortable you would feel being a student there. Do not be afraid to set up an appointment with admissions to ask them any questions about campus or what you can do to get in as that is what they are there for! They will gladly assist you on making this important decision. Start looking at course catalogs to see the variety of classes they offer to find something that interests you as well.

I would suggest to build up scholarship money early for this school, and also make sure you take your education very seriously, but most of all I would recommend keeping an open mind and heart: be expected to encounter diversity.

Ask for more money.

Get involved in everything and anything you can it will be worth it. You meet so many people this way.
Joselin from Austin, TX
Make sure you realized the tuition will increase at a rate higher than current inflation. Don't go if you can't afford it!
Paris from Austin, TX
You want to do well in high school -- the better the grades, the better chance you'll get grants/scholarships. Volunteer! Show them you can be a leader too, they love that. And just realize you're not in high school anymore, in high school I never had to study but as soon as college hit I was studying every night so don't go in thinking you'll have it easy from the get-go.
Sabrina from Phoenix, AZ
Unlike most universities, this campus has professors that expect their students to attend class on a regular basis, mainly because class sizes are roughly twenty students at most, so your presence is noticed and appreciated. Most professors expect in class participation and discussion, not only with them but with your other classmates as well. Another big thing for this university is volunteering, they love to host events for students to volunteer in and when applying, it looks good to have participated in volunteering. Although this is a Catholic school, it is also a liberal arts one. While they do have a religious background, they do not require that you attend mass or participate in any religious events of any particular affiliation. They do require that you take one class on religion, however they offer many topics that range from Catholicism to Religion in Harry Potter.
