Personal recommendation
If you are interested in the American Way of Life and you want to study at one of the best State Universities in the US - then the University of Texas at Austin is a very good choice! Texas is big, the people are friendly, the University is well-known, you can travel a lot, and all in all you have a lot of opportunities!

Book your flights very early, then you may get some discounts (maybe there are some student discounts too). A round trip ticket is also a very good idea (book all flights ahead, to go there and to come back), that makes it cheaper too. If you want to travel within the US (and there is a lot to see) book Youth Hostels or flights here in Austin over the Internet - you can get very good deals! - for example just USD 99,00 from Austin to Los Angeles with Southwest Airlines. Keep your luggage small, believe me! If you need a shirt, shoes or something else, you can buy it in Austin very cheap.

My personal packing experiences: I took WAY TO MANY books with me (you really find stuff to read at once, if you like reading! - if you ever have the time, anyway.. :-)); but I didn't take bedsheets or towels, which I could have used well. In general, don't take to much (I came with one suitcase and it was enough) and think of the warmth - you really only need one warm jacket and something for the occasional thunderstorms with rain (if you should ever choose to go out during one of these extraordinary phenomenons..), the rest of the time you will wear light clothing.

Personal recommendation
Austin is a very liberal city, with a lot of students and fun people, who do their best to "keep Austin weird" (as it says on many t-shirts!). In addition, the courses I took were of very high quality and really interesting. If that sounds appealing to you, then go for it!

I bought a bike in the beginning of the semester and used it ALL the time (I lived very close to campus, though).

Take advantage of 6th street, avoid Spiros, and try pete's piano bar at the very beggining. If you can afford it...buy a car!

In this city you need a car. The public transportation is not so good.

The university needs to stop charging for the copies that we print at the computer lab. We pay a high rate to be able to use the computer center.

Brownsville is a sunny and small city. The life style is very relaxing, no traffic jams, no stress, no long lines. It is a peaceful city.
