Student & Graduate Reviews (34)
Ability to take challenging classes. Good resources available to help with homework and find jobs. Great community to be around.
This university challenged the hell out of me. It was definitely not a walk in the park but I am thankful for the tough experience. As a graduate I have every faith that my course work has left me prepared to succeed in my career within Nutrition.
Great college. Awesome instructors and lots of fun on campus. Great food around the campus.
UT offered a very theoretical degree. That's fine if you're planning on going to grad school, but if you want to be a real-world engineer, be sure your school of choice offers a practical degree plan.
It was a great school with excellent instructors.
UT is a great school with a great atmosphere. There are almost endless activities, clubs, and events happening for anyone looking for something to do or a way to meet people.
Every class you could want and strong competition that drives you to succeed later in life. UT has a great culture and every extra curricular activity you could want. You have to seek out mentorship and advice because the campus is so large but the advice is there and the people who helped me were very eager to help.
The Public Health degree plan is the best choice I have made. It's with in the College of Natural Sciences. When I was accepted, I was originally a Biology major, but after a while I figured that I wanted to major in something that was well-rounded. Public Health consist of a mixture of science and social context and there are many jobs in this field of study. Plus, the professors are great and are there for you when ever you need help or want to talk. This major is small and requires acceptance in order to be in the major, but this is a great thing when it comes to getting to know your professors.
UT is a large school, but I was able to find my place within my major and with other students like me. It is important to collaborate with students like you, but UT also provides a place to meet people completely unlike you and with different views and lifestyles. Austin is a wonderful city with an endless amount of fun to be had, and it is a great city to spend your college days in. Beyond providing a great place to gain life experience, UT houses wonderful staff, research programs, resources, and student support. Being at UT has been enlightening, refreshing, and challenging, yet it still seems to feel like home.
Obtaining my bachelors degree was very important, I would not be a teacher today in Texas if I had not gotten one. However, I teach high school math, so my major in History has not been applicable to my current job. It was not the institution's fault though, I was very unsure of what I wanted to do at that time in terms of a career, but I am very grateful I stuck it out and got my bachelors, like I said, I would not be where I am today without one.
