    UT has an incredible, highly involved alumni network who are eager to work with fellow horns. While in school UT has a great student job bank ranging from internship opportunities to part time jobs aimed at students, great for cash flow, and usually applying through the UT student job search page gives you a leg up on getting your resume reviewed by potential employers!

    Super diverse. I got to have a multitude of experiences in undergrad bc of the diversity of the student population. I had one group of friends who were all fraternity/sorority, another which all became acquainted through the rhetoric department and loved debating together, and yet another who were all varsity athletes. I got to see the world through many different lenses, and it shaped me in many ways that have been beneficial both personally and professionally.

    There was a lot of ethnic diversity which I thought helped make the courses more competitive and challenging. It is a huge university. With such a large campus and student population, making friends was either done in class, at the dorms, or off campus entirely. Students had a lot of independence, and you had to be self-motivated in order to succeed.
