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.

Degree: Liberal Arts
Graduation Year: 1988

I feel that my undergraduate program at the University of Texas at Austin was challenging and helped me to become a more competitive person who learned to self-advocate and become more focused on my goals. At that time, there were about 60,000 students enrolled at my alma mater, which meant that learning to survive and thrive there meant developing competitive skills which made one stand out in a very large crowd while becoming adept at navigating a large bureaucratic system. i made many lifelong friends there and developed some close relationships with my upper division professors, despite the school's large size. After surviving many "weed-out" classes and developing new interests that had not occurred to me prior to attending UT, I felt ready to take on the challenges of grad school and the working world. UT helped me to develop the fighting spirit, determination and perseverance that has sustained me to this day.

Degree: Management Information Systems and Services, Other
Graduation Year: 2006

The campus is beautiful and Austin is one of the best cities in the country. Great food, live music, so many outdoor activities. The school is large, but feels very intimate. I wouldn't have changed my experience for anything.

Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2011

UT Austin is an amazing school, both academically and because Austin is a great place to live and spend your college years. UT is one of the most prestigious schools in Texas, and because it's public it is an excellent deal financially, particularly for Texas residents. It has a large, vibrant student body with countless opportunities to get involved and meet people while you get your degree. I would highly recommend UT!

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2006

University of Texas is a great school. It's very diverse but once you're in your major, it has the feeling of a small school. There are so many activities and programs available and ways to get involved in the school.

Degree: Anthropology
Graduation Year: 2014

The University of Texas is an amazing school with some of the best facilities in the country. Even though the school is rather large, you can get across campus easily and the school partners with the city to provide free public transportation. Not to mention the fact that the campus is beautiful and a joy to walk through on a daily basis. Classes are challenging, but the professors are all passionate about their field and were always easy to reach or available for office hours. Participating in the university's endless research opportunities and study abroad programs is highly encouraged and a great way to make sure you get the best use of your undergraduate career at a school like Texas.

Graduation Year: 2008

Excellent school. The program was cool because of how small it was so it was easy to get to know professors, etc.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2006

It is what you make of it. UT is large enough to sink into the background without establishing meaningful relationships, so it is up to you to make it something worthwhile - there are plenty of clubs and organizations to accomplish this.
