REVIEWS OF Austin College IN Texas

Darby Brewer

I'm currently a junior here and can honestly say if you get accepted to another school, make Austin College your last resort. It's overpriced for what little we receive. The food is horrible, there are limited things to do on campus, and you can only live off campus if you're a senior. The dorms are average, but way too old and smell of mold. The academic part of this school is lovely and I enjoy the class size and how close I am with my professors. But, this school needs a MAJOR update on its amenities.

I attended Austin College for two years, from 1971 to 1973. I wasted a lot of money and two years out of my life there. A majority of the students, mostly from rich families, were snotty, condescending, and downright mean. If they weren't rich they were there on scholarships, and were ultra smart, condescending, and mean. I'm a friendly person and yet I made only one true friend at that hellhole. During those two years, I was sequentially forced to share a tiny room with three women as follows: a nice girl who transferred out after freshman year, a nice but certifiably mentally ill girl, and an insane Satan worshiping girl. Yes, there were a number of Satan worshipers at AC. Could it get any worse? The very air stank from the emissions from a nearby factory, the food mostly sucked, and the good professors I had left that hole as soon as they could. Please don't go there!

I enjoyed my time at AC (class of '07) and it has made a lasting positive impact on my life. Not only did I enjoy the academics and extracurricular activities, I also met my wife there. It is in no way a perfect school, but has many opportunities. I am back on campus at least once a year and they have made many improvements, since I went there. I come from a humble upbringing and got minimal scholarships, but paid off my loans quickly after graduate school. Thanks to Austin College I got a full ride to graduate school. Great opportunities to travel and learn languages. Some people have had bad experiences, but that could happen anywhere.

I attended AC during the 1967 and 1968 academic year and played football for the 'Roos. Great schedule and a winning season. Overall, a very good but not an outstanding experience. Actually, academically, I have nothing but high praise for AC. The quality of the academic staff is good and the class size even as a freshman (freshperson?) was almost one-on-one. Ironically, what caused me to leave AC was an ethical lapse by one of the assistance coaches. After playing in almost every AC football game during my freshman year and qualifying for enough quarters to receive a letter jacket, one of your assistance coaches advised me that I would not be receiving a letter jacket because my cleats had not been returned "sufficiently clean". He refused my offer to try to meet his standard of "sufficiently clean." I really felt betrayed by this moron after devoting an entire season of sweat and blood for AC without even receiving one dime for an athletic stipend or any other recognition or compensation. To make a long story short, I immediately transferred to UT-Austin, graduated with a B.S. degree and then received my M.S. at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. I have completed a 40+ year career with Exxon Mobil and continue to contribute as a Consultant. Bruce A. Larson, M.S. CIH, CSP Principal Consultant and CEO, Brooks & Larson, LLC

I graduated from here back in 2000. It is a small enough place that you can get to know many people, many of which will turn out to be life long friends. You can also pursue anything you are truly passionate about here, and there are great resources to encourage you. This school will also give you a global perspective as it highly encourages language study, and travel and cultural experiences. All in all, it is an excellent choice.

Nicole Baker

I am going to be a rising sophomore here at AC this coming fall. There are many things about this school that I really enjoy, such as the ease of access to help and professors who care about you and their job. It is also a huge plus that I get to perform in the Sherman Symphony Orchestra. I have also met some of the best friends I have ever had since coming here. I feel like the academics of this school are really cared about and that is important. I do, however, really wish that the cafeteria food and dorms would be better for what I pay, and that they were more flexible. I have had countless experiences that were a lot more difficult than they ever needed to be.

contrary to positive reviews from alumni claiming I never attended college here, I did. This is a terrible college. It's not even accredited from the state of Texas what I can tell. I graduated from this school in 2009. This place is a ripoff that claims it teaches you something by asking you to learn... Except you pay them to teach. They often destroy students futures. attending school here opened no 'doors' for me, in fact it closed many for me. since starting college here, people have refused to interview me for jobs on the grounds that I don't have a 4 year degree when I do. There's no campus security (2 meter maids are the entire acpd), the food in the cafeteria will give you dysentery and is often rotten, the career services office is completely unhelpful and spent a lot of their time insulting me and yelling in my face, and the student body is rude unkind and down right threatening. I was assaulted on campus my freshman year, and the school didn't even do anything about it, in fact the Vice President of Student life (Tim Millerick) did a lot to obfuscate justice and prevent sherman texas police from getting involved. I have since started attending community college in Dallas Texas and at UT arlington and have received a far better education there for much less money! Seriously, Austin College cost me $117k over 4 years and ruined my life! don't go to school here! Since graduation I have received threatening phone calls from Tim millerick every couple of months, and I have repeatedly called the police in regards to this. 9 years of death threats over the phone is inappropriate, unethical, and illegal. The school should fire him.

As a fairly recent former student, I can say that AC provides very little opportunity. I left AC after I landed on medical leave, and eventually I decided not to go back. I spent some time at my local jr college while working through my health, and the academics were far superior, the teachers had more experience and it provided me with far more opportunities than AC ever did/would've. Seriously, TCC was harder than Austin College, and after one summer course there I had a halfway decent job in my field of study. The freshmen C/I classes at AC are pointless. The "boardroom setting" offers no value. In depth discussions about the use of the word "blobs" in a short story will not prepare you for the professional world nor will lectures supporting the homosexual beastiality fetish shared between Scooby and Shaggy. The small class sizes lead to several problems, a major one being favoritism. The staff is very unprofessional and unreliable. As far as student life... the Greek system is local. The student body is eclectic, but everyone mostly stays sequestered within their own little groups and it kind of has the vibe of a really snooty private high school -- split down the middle between rich kids with unimpressive academic records vs genius level scholarship students. They don't offer athletic scholarships, so their athletes are given "academic scholarships" and this has created an infestation of mediocre students that cost the school money. A lot of the kids have learning disabilities and/or social/mental problems. One girl asked me how to spell "easier" and another (that I had only known for a few days) went into full detail about her depression and suicide attempt. I told my RA about this out of concern and she implied that these types of encounters are not uncommon. The student center is tiny and there's really nothing to do in there except play pool or darts. The cafeteria food is shoddily prepared, and the campus is located in a residential area, so to go out to eat or hit the grocery store, you have to have a car. It's a very claustrophobic and unclean environment. We (the students) got sick a lot. My friends and I were stranded twice by that bus thing when it never returned to pick us up and take us back to campus. Yeah, not the best student life really and the professors are pretty inconsistent when it comes to giving help and being available... and sometimes downright spiteful towards their students. AC was very frustrating. It doesn't have the best student life and the professors are extremely inconsistent when it comes to giving help and being available. I had an awful experience with a media professor who was downright spiteful, sent long e-mails with abrasive language while refusing to meet with me in person and didn't read the rough draft of my final paper, just gave it a 100, and this led to issues with the final that highly affected my grade. It's not a terrible place for pre-med students, at least as far as straight up academics, but most (and most of the students overall) really hated it there. All the things AC claims as its advantages are actually extremely destructive. Go to Southwestern or Baylor instead.

I graduated from Austin College in 2009 and contrary to what Preston has stated, I could not disagree more. You make college the college experience what it is. The professors here are excellent and are more than willing to go the extra mile to help you succeed, all you have to do is ask. Students here have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester or take a Jan term abroad (a 3 week mini-mester in January) to places like Australia, Brazil, Italy, Bali, South Africa, Prague, etc. Students at other colleges never get this type of opportunity but AC encourages it!!! I highly recommend AC to all of my current 10th-12th grade students when they ask me about college choices. The food in the cafeteria might not be the best, but its definitely not inedible. But if you don't like the cafeteria food there is always the Pouch Club as an alternative!!! With all the opportunities given to you at AC (both during and after you graduate), there is no reason not to love this school.

I received a degree in Physics from Austin College in 2007. I really enjoyed my time there. The small size of the school enables a very personal relationship with the professors, and opens a lot of doors. I highly recommend this school. The campus is really pretty, even though some of the buildings are quite old.

Charles Rambo

A beautiful campus with the friendliest faculty, staff and alumni I have ever met in an education atmosphere. This is a school that is designed around student success, and therefore has a slightly different way of doing things, which is a breath of fresh air in the world of higher education. That said it is a school, and you have to apply you self to find true success here, so it's not for everyone. The results show though with one of the highest 4 year graduation rates in the country, and excellent job/graduate school placement.

Austin College has never been anything, but a positive experience for me. As a sophomore, I’ve fallen in love with the academic opportunities on this campus. The class work may be challenging, but AC never leaves you without a support system. With small classroom settings, professors are available to help with lessons or assignments all throughout class. Office hours are always available for outside help and there are even of free tutoring opportunities. As far as extra curricular activities, there are tons of them! Between Greek Life, personal expression clubs, language clubs and service groups… no interest goes unmet. If Greek life or clubs aren’t your thing, CAB (Campus Activity Board) makes sure there are events almost every night for students to take a break and relax with. Campus life is great, but to help prepare us for graduate life as well, Career Services strives to get every student career-ready. They offer Career-Readiness Checks, mock interviews, internship opportunities, resume critiques and more to ensure that every student feels prepared for the real world after graduating. Opportunities are endless here. I’m confident that by the time I leave Austin College, I will be better because of it.

Did not enjoy our visit. They seemed to put priority on customers and we weren't high on the list. Then the waitress questioned why we couldn't just wait. Decided to go somewhere else to eat.
