Description
The University of Texas at Austin (informally Texas, University of Texas, UT Austin, or simply UT) is a state research university in Downtown Austin, Texas, USA. It is the flagship institution of the University of Texas System. Founded in 1883, its campus is approximately 0.25 miles (400?m) from the Texas State Capitol in Austin. The institution has the fifth-largest single-campus enrollment in the nation as of fall 2010 (and had the largest enrollment in the country from 1997 to 2003), with over 50,000 undergraduate and graduate students and 16,500 faculty and staff. It currently holds the largest enrollment of any college in Texas. The University of Texas at Austin was named one of the original eight Public Ivy institutions and was inducted into the American Association of Universities in 1929. The university is a major center for academic research, with research expenditures exceeding 640 million for the 2009–2010 school year. The university houses seven museums and seventeen libraries, including the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum and the Blanton Museum of Art, and operates various auxiliary research facilities, such as the J. J. Pickle Research Campus and the McDonald Observatory. Among university faculty are recipients of the Nobel Prize, Pulitzer Prize, the Wolf Prize, and the National Medal of Science, as well as many other awards. UT Austin student athletes compete as the Texas Longhorns and are members of the Big 12 Conference. The university has won four NCAA Division I National Football Championships, and has claimed more titles in men's and women's sports than any other school in the Big 12 since the league was founded in 1996. Current and former UT Austin athletes have won 117 Olympic medals, including 14 in Beijing in 2008. The university was recognized by Sports Illustrated as "America's Best Sports College" in 2002.

地理位置
Austin is the capital of Texas and is widely recognized as a live music center – in fact, the city has more places to hear live music than any other US city. This cosmopolitan city has much to offer UT students and Austin residents show their support for the university, especially by coming out for the Longhorns on game days. Less than a mile from the University of Texas campus you will find the Texas State Capitol building which has a deeply rooted history of its own. Surrounding the capitol is a busy downtown area filled with impressive buildings, art, and culture. It is home to fine restaurants, almost 20 museums and 50 art galleries, frequent live music events, and a buzzing nightlife very popular amongst UT students. At the center of downtown Austin is Town Lake, which includes an eleven-mile hike and bike trail, Auditorium Shores, a park area for events and concerts, and Zilker Park, where on a sunny day you can find hundreds of college students swimming, sunning, and playing sports. In between classes, students take a break to eat and shop at a wide variety of boutiques and restaurants on Guadalupe Street, or ‘The Drag,’ located on the western-most border of UT’s main campus.

The most prominent feature on UT-Austin’s 350-acre main campus is the 307-foot tall UT Austin Tower, which serves as the university’s most distinguishing landmark. The observation deck allows for a spectacular view from all directions. The UT Tower is often lit bright orange to recognize any achievements on campus that the school finds noteworthy, whether academic or athletic. Surrounding the UT Tower is the Main Mall. The College of Communication and School of Engineering are at the northwest end of the campus. On the west mall, students can find different organizations set up with tables to promote events or recruit new members for their clubs. The College of Fine Arts and School of Law are through the mall to the east. The eastern end of the main campus contains the football stadium and other athletic fields. The South Mall leads down to Littlefield Fountain, a monument unveiled as a World War I memorial in 1933.

宿舍条件
UT-Austin does not guarantee housing and does not require freshmen to live on campus. Applicants are encouraged to apply for housing as soon as possible as there are a limited number of spots on campus. “Lovingly referred to as Jesta’, Jester is the primary dorm on campus, and one of the biggest in the United States. Located on Speedway and 21st, Jester is divided into east and west wings. Parts of Jester West have suite-style bathrooms that connect two separate rooms, and the rest of Jester West and Jester East have community bathrooms with sinks in each room. Jester’s variety of eating options and proximity to Gregory Gym and the Perry-Casta?eda Library make it a convenient place to live. However, students tend to complain about too much noise and the ‘Jester smell’ that supposedly infects the hallways. Students accepted into honors programs at UT are invited to live in the Honors Dormitories. These are Carothers, Andrews, and Blanton. Together, these dorms form the Honors Quad, along with Littlefield, an all-girls dorm with a café on its lower level. The ‘special invitation’ to live in the Quad is somewhat deceiving. Although they have certain advantages, the dorms, particularly Blanton, are far from better than the others. However, they do offer a tight-knit community that makes the campus seem smaller, allowing otherwise quiet or shy students to make friends more easily. Duran and San Jacinto, the two newest residence halls on campus, are the five-star hotels of the UT dorms. Brand new, Duran has spacious rooms and private bathrooms. A couple of years older, San Jacinto has a delicious café/market. However, students complain that because of their nice, secluded rooms, Duran and San Jacinto fail to foster a good social environment. About half of the dorms on campus eat in the J2, Jester’s cafeteria, and the other half eat at the cafeteria in Kinsolving, an all-girls dorm on the opposite end of campus. Because of its enormous student body, UT has many other residence halls. Lesser known dorms include Brackenridge, Moorehill, Roberts, Simkins, and Whitis Court.”

体育培养
UT-Austin has long been-known for its successful sports teams and diehard fans. In a 2002 cover story, Sports Illustrated magazine ranked UT-Austin first among the nation’s 324 Division I athletic programs. Each year, approximately 23,000 students also participate in intramural sports, forming over 100 teams on campus. “Longhorn football and basketball are overall the most popular sports for the student population and the general public. First, the Longhorns have won the third most games overall compared to any other college football program. Texas has won a total of four national championships in 1963, 1969, 1970, and 2005. Two Texas players have earned the Heisman Trophy, the highest honor for a college football player - Earl Campbell and Ricky Williams, both wore their burnt orange proudly. Indeed, Texas fans have become accustomed to this winning tradition and show immense school spirit and support for their football team. On a typical game day, a sea of burnt orange fills Darrell K. Royal Texas-Memorial Stadium. Tailgates are set up the night before a game, and fans are ready to cheer on their team in the often blistering Texas heat. Basketball is not as huge as football but is still very much a part of the Longhorn winning tradition. Texas basketball has received national recognition in recent years under head coach Rick Barnes.”
