The school is great if you are interested in pursuing a degree thats worthwhile. Partying and crowded events are kept to a minimum but there are a variety of clubs and organizations to join and partake in that kind of make you forget that we dont have a football team.

Laraib - 11/05/2020

I love the university's environment, I have been to the University of Texas at Dallas many times because my sisters graduated from there. I also went to many events and loved the people and staff there. Since, I moved to Texas from Pakistan in 2016, this university has been my dream school and I am applying for it this weekend.

Carla - 08/14/2020

I am very excited of the possiblity of attending a great University. It is a perfect distance away from home but not to far away if I want to visit my familly for the weekend. The university provides dorms that have separate rooms along with a laundry room and cafeterian. It is located in a great city where I have the ability to see new things and places. The university also has many professiors and variouse different majors amd classes. I hope to attend this college and make a future here.

Personally, I love UT Dallas; it's a perfect match for me. The location is nearby home and the campus is lined with beautiful magnolia trees. The students are friendly and welcoming to everyone. The on-campus housing are probably the best there is for public colleges. They're roomy and lets you spend more time on campus. The organizations are all encompassing, from Greek life to dance clubs to engineering ones. There's at least one club for everyone. The campus facilities are amazing. Not only do we have computers labs, a library, and tutor labs on campus, we even have a gaming computer lab to relax at. My professors have been considerate towards their students and want us to excel. And we are also known for our academics. I say the classes are pretty challenging, especially the engineering/science/math classes. But overall UTD is my home away from home. I don't feel to homesick because there's so much to see and do on (and off) campus.

  8. What are the most popular student activities/groups?

    If a student really wants to get involved with their school, they can join SUAAB which pretty much puts on a lot of the hang out activites at school. If you want to change something about UTD, then joining the Studnet Government organization is the club for you. It also looks great when putting it on the resume. At first I did not meet many people here at UTD but that was because I did not live on campus and had to commute from 30 minutes away. But the years after, I met a lot of different people in all my classes and I still study and hang out with them.
