I changed my major four times and am still graduating on time

I didn’t realize what made me happy until I turned to the last resort.

Every kind of guy you’ll see on Tinder in Austin

Swiping right in ATX

As if we didn’t know why UT Austin has the best student life

We didn’t ask to be the best, it just happened

Politics ruined my relationship with my dad

My dad hasn’t talked to me since election night

For minorities racism at UT isn’t exceptional, it’s the rule

We spoke to students who experience it daily

Why you should miss your mom as much as I do

Sorry dad

Can we guess which UT stereotype you are from your personality?

Are you the parent or health freak?

Why UT’s response to the transcript outrage isn’t enough

People are really pissed

Every trend I wish would stop at UT this year

Leave Harambe alone

Austin is the least ‘southern’ city in the South

If you embrace Austin, Austin will embrace you

I live in the same building as the Sigma Chi shooter

He had a handgun and an AK-40

We asked UT students how the gun laws make them feel

“I’m afraid that there might be an incident this year that will force these laws to be reverted.”

I was catfished by my best friend

‘There were so many emotions running through me – I was angry, sad, confused’

As an American woman, I’ll never take my education for granted

We still have a lot to accomplish when it comes to gender gaps around the world

We asked UT students if the new campus carry laws make them feel safer

‘You don’t who’s carrying a gun and when they’ll feel provoked to use it’

My boyfriend and I have an open relationship and you should want one, too

I’ve been dating my beau for 3 years and he just came around to the idea

What it was like growing up as a first generation Indian-American

I had to keep so many big secrets

Just your average Indian kid trying to survive life in the South

How do you speak Indian? Where’s your red dot? Why does your food smell weird?
