Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2016

The studio arts program at UT is a bit stuck in a weird place. Its looking to stay in the conceptual and the past, yet doesn't provide an adequate framework for students to become practicing artists. There is no community, no shows, no workshops for professional artists- and the degree is so rigid that you'll find yourself flailing in lots of different subjects instead of improving in one. The only people I see really enjoying their time here are those that like painting and printmaking, and are not paying for it. For everyone else, please find a more prestigious school to practice conceptual art- and if you are into industry art this is most definitely not the place for you.

Degree: Neurobiology and Neurosciences, Other
Graduation Year: 2015

The University of Texas at Austin has excellent Biology curriculums. I would highly recommend their Neurobiology degree plan to students preparing to pursue an MD or a PhD program in the neuroscience. I would NOT recommend this degree plan to students looking to find a career straight out of their undergraduate career since there is close to no jobs for a Bachelor's in Neurobiology (in this case I would suggest pursuing the field of Microbiology instead). As an aspiring healthcare professional, the courses I took at UT Austin were challenging yet valuable because of the passionate professors eager to ensure their students' success in their class. The only trouble I faced was the large student body population that made safety of the campus weak (i.e. recent assault/murder of Haruka Weiser) as well as the usefulness of their career advisors since they do not have the time to really get to know each student and tailor their advices to fit the students's own interests.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2017

The University of Texas is a wonderful school for students willing to take the initiative to achieve success. There are unlimited opportunities available, but only if students actively pursue these. Success here is earned by individuals, not handed out upon enrollment. Expect rigorous classes with knowledgeable professors who are willing to act as mentors if students initiate a relationship.

Degree: Cell/Cellular and Molecular Biology
Graduation Year: 2012

I had a really bad experience in the Cell and Molecular Biology Graduate Program at The University of Texas at Austin. I would advise any people who are considering going into a Grad Program in this area to use extreme caution before going to UT. Unless you are the best of the best, they will probably admit you but you are likely to have a really bad time there.

Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2013

During my time at UT Austin, I felt that I gained greater insight into the world. My professors came from all different backgrounds and countries but all had the same passion for learning. While I was there I learned to appreciate the diverse student body and the opportunities that UT could provide. I was able to take classes from all different colleges and experience a great amount of information. The career advisors in the business school took my opinions and dreams seriously and wanted to help make them a reality.

Degree: Radio, Television, and Digital Communication, Other
Graduation Year: 2013

UT was a mix of a great city with plenty of different kinds of people, a great school with plenty of interesting classes to choose from, and a great network of post-grads.

Degree: Computer Science
Graduation Year: 2011

Great environment for college students. Classes are right in the middle in regards to difficulty. The amount you put in will be what you get.

Degree: Foods, Nutrition, and Wellness Studies, General
Graduation Year: 2008

UT was great. It's so big but you can always find smaller interest/study groups to be a part of so you don't feel so small on such a large campus.

Degree: Chemistry Teacher Education
Graduation Year: 2013

My program was fantastic. The people in UTeach, who oversee secondary education for math and science teachers, were able to work with scheudle as a junior when I first joined their program and I still wanted to graduate on time. They were able to help me schedule my classes in order so I could finish on time. I got plenty of first hand experience in the classroom - all but two of the UTeach classes I took required us to write lesson plans using what we had learned for various classes. We then presented them to a group of actual students and got feedback from our professors and the teachers who were kind enough to us experiment with different formats and ways of presenting information. I felt extremely prepared for my first year in classroom, and while it was a struggle, I had the confidence to stick with it and know where to improve and how to ask for help.

Degree: History
Graduation Year: 2007

UT was equal parts fun and immensely educational. It felt really daunting and overwhelming at first, but as someone told me my first year, it becomes small and intimate. As an alumnus, I have connected with other alums all over the world. The display of that longhorn logo is an instant conversation starter, and immediately initiates a sense of commradery with someone who, in all other ways, would have been a complete stranger.
