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.

UTA is concerned with student activities. The school is always having different events and fairs to engage students involvemnet on campus.

It's nice that the school invites celebrities (singers and presidential candidates for instance) to speak with students.
