Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2018

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.

Degree: Art History
Graduation Year: 2019

UT Austin is an amazing public ivy and top tier research institution. The amount of resources at my fingertips from the Benson center to the Harry Ransom Center and others was impeccable for pursuing a BA in Art History. I was motivated by all my professors. My only grievance is administrative as the Art History department severely lacked in providing representative global art history courses that were accessible every semester as the course schedule was heavily based in western European art.

The UT Austin Civil Engineering is very good about providing its students with resources and opportunities to grow as individuals and as academics. This campus allows you to not only develop yourself as a student but also interact with a booming city in the state of Texas filled with even more opportunities for growth. The department is also equipped with highly achieved professionals in the respective fields.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2008

I will never forget the feeling of flying into Austin to start my first semester at the University of Texas. I was eager, excited, nervous, and anxious. As I arrived on campus, I was greeted by several students who assisted me in carrying my bags to my dorm. The students, faculty, and administration ate incredibly helpful and kind. The classes were very educational that I carried with me to this day. Campus itself is beautiful and there are several things to do in and around Austin . Hook 'em Horns!

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2019

Overall, UT Austin is a great school. It has the best name recognition in Texas, and its BSW program is #1 in the country for a reason. I feel completely qualified as a social worker in the field because of my education with UT Austin. It has wonderful research resources as a Tier 1 University. There are plenty of campus organizations to get involved with, and there are so many amazing programs to learn from, such as their Bridging Disciplines Program, Projects for Underserved Communities, Austin City Hall Fellowship, and a plethora of others. Its mental health services are free, due to recent organizational changes, and they're pretty great albeit time-limited. Riding the bus is free to all students, and so are the gym facilities. If you're into sports, you can buy the Student Big Ticket, which lets you into all the games for something like $140. The downsides to UT Austin are as follows: the Austin bus system leaves a lot to be desired due to commute times and walking distances, parking on campus is OBSCENE (the cheapest pass is $140 a year and good luck trying to park in the 5 or so lots you're allowed to past 9 AM), there's a lot of unaddressed dating and sexual violence in West Campus, while I've been at UT (2015-2019) there was the rape and murder of a freshman female and a mass stabbing, the Big Ticket is literally the ONLY student discount for games, and financial aid is pretty hard to come by unless you're exceptionally merited or exceptionally poor.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2018

The University of Texas at Austin is one of the greatest schools in the state of Texas. This because of three core reasons: the academics, the student body, and the opportunities. As a prestigious public school, The University of Texas provides you with instructors and degree plans that challenge you beyond your comfort zone. It pushes you to reach your potential and test your knowledge beyond your usual scope. Likewise, the school recruits new students every year that embody the principle "Work hard, play hard." Every student regardless of their degree plan show empathy for one another, ambition to become a successful individual, and social support for each other. Your classmates will quikly become your family throughout your time at the university. Also, they have many organizations you can join so you can quickly find your niche. Finally, the university provides students with endless opportunities to expand and maximize their career. From laboratories, career fairs, to volunteering opportunities, UT gives the students endless resources so they can further their education and develop into a well-rounded individual. They provide countless counselors to help guide you through your coursework. On top of that, the school does realize that succeeding on top of all your classes can be stressful at time. So, they even provide multiple health services so students can take care of themselves physically and mentally. Overall, the University of Texas is one of the greatest schools to attend. Looking back, I would definitely go back to UT for undergrad if I had a chance to repeat it all!
