"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."

Tom Rairdon - 3/22/2015
Graduation Year: 1999
"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."

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

Degree: Fashion
Graduation Year: 2017
"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."
