I think its a decent university but there are a lot of crappy professors especially in computer science. Also the campus life is... not alive. There is almost never any events or stuff happening on campus so it can get really boring living there. Also UTD is very expensive for no reason and the facilities and quality of education don't reflect the high tuition and housing costs.
UTD is a good school if you want to focus on STEM or business. There aren't many options for anything else. The professors aren't the best but there are some good ones. Depending on your major you'll see your classes being taught by graduate students, which isn't bad if they're organized. I've had some really good graduate students teach my classes and some bad ones. Most of my professors have been from different countries which has made understanding a bit hard sometimes. Most of them will have no problem with someone asking them to repeat themselves. However, the majority of students won't speak up. Activities and extracurriculars are limited. Although people will say there are many to join that's simply not true. Although there's a lot, most organizations are very academic-based or for a specific audience. It's difficult to find something lighthearted and fun to join. Overall, it's a good school but I think it's important to look at different options before deciding on UTD.
UTD doesn't have a typical college experience, which can either be a pro or con depending on what you are looking for. If you are looking for a bog party scene or just a huge campus/school in general, it may not be the place for you. But if you are searching for a low key environment at a mid sized school to focus on academics and extracurriculars, it might be a great fit. Especially if you want to study anything in math, science, technology, or business.
The University of Texas at Dallas has been a challenging experience so far. My freshman year was a tough time for me due to the preparation it takes to succeed at UTD. Honestly, I had no clue because High School was relatively easy for me but it all changed my freshman year at UTD. There are many people you will see that have an extensive background academically which will be intimidating at first but as long as you change any bad habits and schedule study hours everything will go smooth.

Great foundation for my future.
My classmates are from a variety of backrounds as UT Dallas is known for its international program, so many cultures are represented in every class that I take.
It's a very good school to study.
They are very humorous and knowledgeable.
We're very oriented on the sciences, math, and engineering. Our science professors are very open to research ideas and allowing us research experience without pre requisites and as novices.
its a good school with great teachers there. Shawn Alborz, best prof ever!
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.
No, you bump into a lot of different kinds of people at UTD and there are so many activities on campus at all times tht you never can get bored.
The worst part of the school is that it is located in suburbia instead of a busy urban setting, so there is not much to do around campus.
I think the fact that it's a small campus where it's easy to get to know people is really great. We don't have a football team, so we tend to be really competitive academically, which is also something great about UTD.
It's more science/math based than child psychology based. :)
There are a variety of people that attend our campus, from people that just entered the US from another country to baby boomers, as well as the typical college students you could find in any other school.
Nerdy, geeky, poor social skills
Traffic to get school frustrates me. If there is traffic, i will be late to get a parking spot. Being late means spending more time searching for a place to park and then, since a place to park will be far away, it will take me longer to walk all the way to the classroom.
Students who like the feel of the big football schools should avoid UTDallas because it doesnt have a football team.
UTD is a very rigrious and demanding institution, but the Professors are top notch and truly care about their fields. For some of my Professors, their enthusiasm is infectious, and you get the sense that they really want you to learn about the subject.
I brag mostly about my attendence and my love for math.
I don't know exactly what you mean. But students in my school are all very kind and passionate.
Like many students at UTD will tell you, I came here because of the scholarship.
