College Life Rating

There is no secret that UT has an unbelievable social life. As any student at this university, cushioned in the heart of Austin, Longhorns are able to make the best of any experience. We have more than enough for entertainment as a university and even more so as a city! From live concerts, fund raisers, events, festivals to sports events, tubing, and working for the animal shelter Texas does it big. Anything you join, you will find your niche of people who share the same interests. Austin is weird, and it will have even the oddest space for people with the strangest hobbies! Super big sports fan? No problem, Ut will provide that. Love films? No problem, go to SXSW. Music is your life? Austin is the place to be. Lead a super healthy lifestyle? No worries, just go up at 5am around town lake or visit any of the millions of gyms around campus/Austin. Basically, everyone feels at home here. Go horns!

There are Greek social clubs, but equal opportunities for students who choose to find friends and activities through the many other organizations on campus.
