    Although the university and its resources may be high in cost, their services, education, and entertainment are worth the cost. They provide some of the best education in the country. They provide a vast amount of opportunities for entertainment; you can literally do anything at the school (as long as it is legal). They provide several services to ensure the safety and wellness of their students and professors. They do everything they can to make you feel at home in the 40 acres, and they might even lower your cost based on your financial circumstances! This school is worth all the money I am paying because I am receiving an experience like no other in return!

    This really depends. Texan students at UT are getting an awesome value because total cost is less than $25,000 per year before financial aid. However, those who aren't Texas residents have a total sticker price of around $51,000. Since UT Austin is a public institution, it's pretty difficult to get good financial assistance if you're out of state. If you live somewhere like California, Washington, North Carolina, Georgia, Michigan, or Virginia, you should honestly just consider a state school there instead because the state schools in these places are on the same level as the UT system or better.

    The quality of education you’re getting from UT along with many of the resources you’re provided are well worth the money if you use the resources and your time wisely.

    UT honestly provides a lot for their students. I have made it my mission that I will have used so many resources that the money I spent on UT will equal everything I have done. So far, it is stacking up nicely. Put yourself out here and good things will come! There are plenty of free services available on campus that students forget about! Academic wise we have the writing center in the PCL, Sanger Learning Center (which provides some free tutoring for students, just sign up!), and 17 different libraries on campus - each equipped with unique tools. Health and safety wise, UT has medical services such as the counseling and mental health center, university health services, a pharmacy, student ombuds, UT police department, and SUREWALK (a program to get you across campus when its dark out). Not to mention, events are spread all throughout campus at all times of the day and it definitely makes every day exciting, which I would say is worth the money.
