"If I had the chance to choose again, I would not have picked corporate communications as my major. Go with something more niche and applicable to the real world. Do finance, accounting, computer science, etc. Corporate communications is too vague and looks meaningless on a resume. However, I loved classes and the professors. I learned a lot and thought the material was very interesting, it just was not very applicable to the actual corporate field. Also, people don't mention this enough, but DO INTERNSHIPS. Real work experience is worth so much more than the degree. That is what companies are looking for when they are hiring is your experience. Otherwise, UT was amazing and Austin is the best. Please don't neglect having some fun while you're there. I regret staying on campus and studying all the time. Have some fun! Also, do whatever you can to not move back home after graduating... it's hard but moving back home is worse."

"The University of Texas at Austin is an incredible university that offers a wide array of programs and sits in a unique location. The campus is far enough from the city that it gives you a college feel while also being close enough that you can easily access many of the unique features and activities Austin has to offer. The campus itself is small enough that it has a very homey feel and you can pass by friends as you walk to and from class, yet big enough that there are many opportunities to meet new people. When you walk around the middle of campus there are typically many different tables set up with different clubs and activities being promoted! The University also has a large Greek life and an incredible athletic department. Sporting events are always fun to go to and discount tickets are offered to students. I feel lucky to have had the opportunity to attend a school thats name goes a long way. When interviewers hear you went to The University of Texas they are automatically impressed with your work ethic. The school has a reputation for excellence and rightfully so. The classes are challenging but there are plenty of opportunities to get the help you need to succeed in them. Most of the professors and teaching assistants want to help you learn and offer office hours. On top of this the university has tutors and a writing center where anyone and everyone has the opportunity to receive the help they need."

"The campus offers the ultimate college experience as well as resources needed to complete your program. I got my bachelors in three years while changing degrees. There is a lot of support for freshmen and organizations for almost every type of interest."

"Being a part of such a large campus can seem daunting, but the great thing about UT is that it has so many organizations to make students feel like a part of a tighter community. UT is challenging in such a way that it prepares individuals for a smooth transition into the working world. The educational environment teaches students how to plan, organize, and set and surpass goals for themselves. Not only that, but students also have the dedication and work ethic to overcome any challenges that the workplace throws at them. I know that I felt extremely prepared after graduating last year (2016). All of that being said, my favorite thing about The University of Texas is the fact that the professors truly care about your success as not only a student but as a contributing member of society. They truly make an effort to connect with you as an individual and offer to go out of their way to ensure a stable and productive school environment for each student. I truly feel that the professors are on your side pushing you to become the best version of yourself that you can be."
