Brenden - 07/25/2022

Although there are aspects that aren't perfect. I find that I overall enjoy UTA. To be fair, all of my experience with the school has been during Covid, which has greatly hindered my experience, so when I say I would give it a 3.5/5, that is mostly why. Prices keep going up and I haven't felt that I have gotten my money's worth completely, but it is cheaper than many other options, so it could be much worse. Overall, it is serviceable, I just wish I had come at a better time.

Alecia - 03/01/2022

As a transfer student who recently entered UTA. I find the school enjoyable. Being a fine arts major the class are fun and taught by different critiques and ranges. Being able to meet with classmates and speak easily over project or personal lifestyles. The campus is large and many students really find their own hobbies and cliques easily.

Daisha - 01/08/2022

As a visitor it seems really great! I know they have one of the best nursing programs in Texas, as well as a great campus life. Academically, I'd be able to easily transfer so that I can get jump started on my nursing career. Overall, it's a nice school and have many advisors, professors, or students to reach out to.

Armando - 07/14/2021

I really love the people there and I get to meet new people when sports events come up.

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    "If you're early you're on time, and if you're on time you're late!" - My theatre director Little did I know that these words would be more important to me than I would ever realize. I was the guy who, when confronted with a problem, would take forever to get it started out of fear; fear of the unknown, fear of making a mistake. When time to register for Community College started, I thought it would be a simple and quick process, boy was I wrong. You see there are a few things you need to do before enrolling in your courses. I needed to complete my TSI placement tests, which means I had to study for each test, then also get the required documents, and let's not forget the mandatory advisement sessions. In the end I was left with night courses, that I barely made it in, at the last day to register for classes. If I could some how send a message to myself back then, I would tell myself to plan six months in advance, and I would also tell myself to submit for every single scholarship opportunity that presented itself to me.

  9. Describe your favorite campus traditions.

    Most people do not think of UTA as a school of oppurtunity. They hear UTA and think, "oh that is a blow off." I know this because I used to be one of those people. I started my college career at SFA in Nacogdoches and was real disapointed to be moving back home and having to go to UTA. Now that I go to UTA, I realize that UTA and its staff is best known for the oppurtunites that they provide for any student that wishes to suceed.

  10. Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

    I considered going to UNT and UTA. The uniqueness that led me to the UTA campus was the massive size of the campus. I enjoyed the size of all the engineering buildings and also the locations of the buildings. UNT had a new sadium, but I really wasn't interested in sports, but I'm more interested in engineering. UTA is one of the top engineering schools in the state. I feel like it was the right choice to go to UTA. UNT would be my second choice, but I just wanted to get my education from UTA.

  12. What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

    The most frustrating thing about UTA is, quite simply, the lack of resources. It has all the basics--good tutoring program, strong advising center, well planned course direction--but there really is this vibe of never being quite good enough, simply due to lack of time, space, and money. There's very much an air of "it's not UT Austin, but it's good enough," among many of the students.

  13. What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

    I love the advisors at UTA! I am a first generation college student who transferred from community college, and the advisors I had at Community College were not always as available to me. At UTA there are advisors for everything and every majo and you are required to meet with them once a semester. If you meet an advisor who may not be able to help you, then they can reference you to an advisor who can.

  14. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    UTA is pretty great. There are a lot of students but it still feels like a small community. I'm from a really small place but I felt right at home. There are a lot of changes bin made right now. A new gym, parking lots, and apartments are going up now. We became a non-smoking campus last fall and a lot of students were upset. However, more were pleased than not.
