Why UT Is One Of The Best Universities In The Nation
This is the beginning of an ongoing segment at the Rosette News where we feature a college/university and why it is considered one of the best universities in the nation. Every university has its respective merits, however this segment does not represent the opinions of the Rosette News.
The University of Texas at Austin (UT) is one of the best universities in the nation. U.S News & World Report currently has UT rated as the 52nd best university in the world out of nearly 1,800 universities. Better yet, Niche has UT as the best public university in the nation. Holistically, UT is fantastic.
How about the business school? McCombs Business School is rated as the seventh best undergraduate business program in the nation. Engineering? 11th. Nursing? 13th. Any major at UT is well-represented with top-notch faculty and fantastic resources throughout.
Attending UT means living in downtown Austin. Rated as the best city to live in according to WalletHub, Austin is the place to be and has something for everyone. Enjoy great food? Eateries such as Shake Shack, Chi’lantro and Torchy’s among many others are located directly in Austin. Love music? Music festivals South by SouthWest (SXSW) and Austin City Limits (ACL), which have featured Big Sean, Kanye West and Skrillex, take place in Austin. Interested in technology? Tech giants Apple and Google have locations based in Austin. Even better, Fortune 500 company Dell is based in Austin. The list of things that Austin has to offer goes on.
UT has an atmosphere that breeds individuality and diversity, but creates unity through many students’ drive to change the world and do great things. Changing the world and doing great things isn’t something foreign to UT; ask Founder and CEO of Dell, Michael S. Dell, Astrophysicist and Cosmologist Neil deGrasse Tyson or actor Matthew McConaughey. UT willingly gives every student and faculty member the opportunity to research in their field of interest, averaging $618 million in research expenditures over the past four years. UT’s football program has more National Championships than any other National Collegiate Athletic Association Division 1 school in the state of Texas.
UT offers a top-tier social scene while boasting some of the best academics in the nation. One article cannot capture the greatness of UT; give it a visit. You won’t regret it.
