简评

Overall, not many people love dorm food, especially on-campus dorm food. Some of the private dorms, such as SRD and Castilian, have pretty good food, but for the most part, Bevo Bucks are the best way to go because they can be used at so many places. The Union is a good bet with many different choices, and Wendy’s is open late, so you can “Eat Great, Even Late.” Jest’A Pizza is a good option. Even though dining hall food may not be your favorite, there is always something to eat because there are so many choices. Even as a vegetarian, there are always plenty of options—though you’ll never be on the Atkins diet because the vegetarian options are mostly carbs.

Students seem to agree that Kinsolving may have the best dining hall on campus. San Jacinto is the newest dorm and has a fairly good reputation for dorm food. Jester’s dining hall gets mixed reviews. A great way to make your on-campus dining experience the best that it can be is with Bevo Bucks. With your on-campus housing contract you are given $300 of Bevo Bucks, which can be used at many different restaurants on and around campus. So when you get sick of dorm food, your meal plan will still give you many other options.

The University of Texas has great facilities that should definitely be utilized while you are here. We have great equipment in our gym and Rec Center: machines, weights, a pool, volleyball courts, racquetball courts, an indoor track, and a climbing wall. A few blocks away from the University proper are the intramural fields, located at Guadalupe and 51st Streets, where students can play various sports (soccer, football, Frisbee). The Texas Union is a great place to study, relax, grab a bite to eat, watch TV, or make copies. The second floor chairs are a comfortable place to either hang out or take a quick nap.

The University of Texas has more than a dozen libraries, and permanent exhibits include the Gutenberg Bible and the world’s first photograph. The Benson is the largest collection of Latin American books in North America and they can be accessed by any UTA student. There is an Undergraduate Writing Center located on campus in the UGL where you can get help editing your papers and work on your writing skills free of charge. There are also career centers within every college, as well as the large career center in Jester. Also in Jester is the Jester Learning Center where you can receive walk-in tutoring in many subjects.

Texas, overall, is an attractive state, and UT, the largest university in the state, is certainly no exception. There is every type of guy and girl on campus. With 50,000 students how could you not find someone that you find attractive? Styles here range from skater to sorority girl, hippie to prep, activist to stoner, model to “anything but,” frat boy to thug, prissy girl to outdoorsy, and of course, there’s a fair share of nerds and jocks. You can find whatever it is you are looking for at UT. However, it is somewhat difficult to find someone who wants the same things that you want, i.e. a relationship or no strings attached, depending on your philosophy and your current place in life.

The guys at UT agree that the girls here are hot and they enjoy going to class for the eye candy, if nothing else. The guys here unfortunately have yet to win any awards, but there are definitely a lot of good looking ones out there. This campus may not be as diverse racially as other campuses, but there is definitely a diversity in the types of people at this school. So, whatever your type is, you should be able to find someone who suits your fancy.

You really couldn’t ask for a much better college town than Austin, Texas, the Live Music Capital of the World. There is so much to do in Austin and definitely something for everyone—bars, museums, parks, lakes, running trails, kayaking, shopping, coffee houses, outdoor music venues, smoky blues clubs, naked swimming at Hippie Hollow. There is even a little beach in central Texas—Volente Waterpark Beach.

Austin is a city with a small-town feel, and that is what most people love about it. When you live near UT, you are two minutes from downtown. People around here are walking everywhere, there is a lot of biking, and the people couldn’t be friendlier. Everyone loves the laid-back atmosphere of Austin, and the fact that anything goes. On any day of the week, you can sit around outside people watching for hours and keep yourself entertained. The fun thing about Austin is that if you want to just be lazy and relax by the lake or at the park, you can do that. But if you want to be active, there are tons of places to run, bike, swim, hike, kayak, climb, or pretty much anything you can imagine. The 50,000 students of the University of Texas include so many different kinds of people with so many different kinds of interests that they blend right in to the laid-back, but always fun town that is Austin.

Austin’s nightlife is never boring. No matter your personality, you shouldn’t have a problem finding something to do. From concerts to bars, country to punk, laid-back to rowdy, beer to martinis, 6th street is the place to be once you turn 21 or when you have a really good fake ID. Don’t try to go downtown unless your ID is good, because you will get caught. Underage drinking violations are rampant. In recent years it was a lot easier to drink underage, but they have cracked down since then. If you are underage, there are always other options—coffeehouses, fraternity parties, dorm and apartment parties, and the like.

If you don’t like the downtown scene, you can always hit the restaurant bars like Trudy’s, Iron Cactus, Baby A’s or the campus-area bars like Cain and Abel’s. Whatever you like to do you can find it in Austin and at the University of Texas. The fraternity parties are always fun. Dorm parties are more common in the private dorms, but Jester is rumored to have some pretty fun floor parties. The popular apartment complexes on West Campus and Riverside frequently have parties, so if you want a quiet place to live, look into other neighborhoods or smaller complexes. Some places on 6th Street are certainly not for the faint of heart.

Food in Austin is awesome! One of the best things about this town is the sheer number of restaurants, not to mention the quality of our restaurants. Austin is home to tons of great Mexican restaurants, and those are definitely student favorites. A favorite Austin pastime is Mexican food and a nice cold margarita . . . or just the margarita. Some of the best in town are found at Iron Cactus, Trudy’s, Nuevo Leon, El Arroyo and Baby Acapulco (Baby A’s). If you want to get really drunk, try the Purple at Baby A’s or the Cactus Juice at Iron Cactus (it is made with everclear), or the Mexican martinis at Trudys (there is a limit of two).

Austin has every other type of food you can imagine from BBQ to Thai, Chinese to tapas, delis to vegetarian-only. There are so many places to try, and the students recommend Magnolia Café, Dirty’s, Texadelphia, Hula Hut and Freebird’s. The most popular things to do in Austin besides go to 6th Street, frat parties, or protest, is to go out to eat. So, get ready to gain your Freshman 15 here in Austin and find your new favorite restaurants.

Many students recommend the dorm experience for your freshman year, but after that, it is time for something new and time to live on your own. That’s right, it’s time to get an apartment and have to cook for yourself, clean for yourself, pay bills, as well as have parties and invite members of the opposite sex over as often as you want. Yeah, having an apartment is great. If you want to live near campus and you don’t mind paying a premium, West Campus is the place to be, especially if you are Greek, as this is where the sorority and fraternity houses are located. However, if you are not Greek or Greek-oriented don’t turn your nose up. There are plenty of non-Greeks in West Campus too, as it is the best and most convenient place to live while at UTA. To clarify, West Campus is not actually on campus, but it is to the west of campus across the Drag.

The apartments in West Campus vary from new and nice, to old and trashed, but nearly all are highly priced. This is because of their convenience to campus, and you almost never get everything you pay for. However, they are easily within walking distance to school. If you want to be lazy or it’s raining, there is the West Campus Shuttle Bus. When dealing with campus area apartment management companies just be aware that some companies try to take advantage of college students. If something doesn’t sound fair or right, it’s probably not. Some companies are known for taking students’ deposits, so if you feel you have been treated unfairly, talk to the company. Go over what they used your deposit for and make them explain it to you. If they are still taking advantage, call the Texas Apartment Association or a lawyer, and don’t be afraid to get your parents involved. Riverside is another heavily populated student area that is much lower priced, and you get a lot more amenities for what you pay for. The apartments on Riverside generally have nice pools and health clubs, basketball and volleyball courts, and are inexpensive enough for students to have their own rooms. The only downside is that you have to ride the bus drive to campus, and it is almost impossible to find a place to park. The other downside is that Riverside has a somewhat higher crime rate than other areas of Austin, and everyone has to be more careful when they are in that area.

North Campus is another popular area, and most apartments there are as expensive as West Campus, but there are some less expensive choices, as well. There are many options around Austin on the UT shuttle routes, so you can find housing that is much less expensive than the housing found nearest to campus. Unfortunately, you won’t have the convenience of walking to school, and parking on campus is never an easy task.

The weather in Austin is unpredictable. You can have just about any kind of weather that you could want in Austin. It rains, it snows (every once in awhile). It’s hot, it’s cold, it’s warm, it’s cool, it’s sunny and it’s cloudy. And we average 300 days of sunshine a year. Could you ask for much more? We have summer/springtime weather nine months out of the year, fall for two months and one month of winter. It hardly ever gets really cold, and the winters are generally mild. It did snow in 2003, though, and that was fun for everyone—we even got a snow day off from school. However, this is definitely a rare occurrence. The summers are hot, with lots of days in the high 90s and 100s.

As for clothes, bring jeans and T-shirts, shorts and tank tops, sweatshirts and one jacket, but nothing too heavy because you will not need it. Oh, and don’t forget your umbrella. It rains fairly often here, but it then clears up pretty clearly. A popular saying in Texas is “If you don’t like the weather, wait 10 minutes.” That saying definitely applies in Austin. Overall, the weather is great; just don’t get too attached to any certain kind of weather, because it will change for sure.

The University of Texas is one of the top public universities in the country. It has top-ranked programs in accounting, engineering, and communication studies, just to name a few. The professors at UT run the gamut—some are great and genuinely care about their students, and some have written the textbooks that are used in their classes and aren’t as interested in students’ input. Others are only teaching so that they can stay at Texas to further their research. Most likely in your career at Texas, you will have at least one of each different kind of teacher, but the majority of professors are wonderful and will give you a great experience. Some classes at UT are rather large—more than 100 people—but that doesn’t make them inferior, nor does it preclude learning. In these large classes, there are generally several TAs that you can utilize, and you should always take advantage of a professor’s office hours. This can help to make the large lecture class seem smaller. Depending on your major, and especially once you get into upper-division classes, there are generally smaller classes with more individual attention.

There are two classes at UT that everyone should take as electives while they are a student: EDP 367 Human Sexuality and CMS 315M Interpersonal Communication Theory. These are two of the most interesting and fun classes that the majority of students here eventually wind up taking. While neither are blow-off classes, they both teach you a lot and are enjoyable to study for.

学校多样化情况的评价:[Interestingly Diverse] : We have got people of all shapes, sizes, and walks of life here in the fabulous Austin, Texas.
