What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is a good school for STEM and Business majors, but if otherwise should look somewhere else. It's hard to meet people in classes and the school population is very clicky. The professors are hit or miss i.e. they are either really good or not. Also there's very little on-campus housing and virtually no-parking.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Texas at Dallas is one of the most diverse universities built with the most beautiful and comfortable site as possible. Their academic level is high because the professors are always ready to do their best and really challenge the students mentally because they want the best for them and they want to see the students succeed in the workforce. In short, the campus is excellent, there are great programs that are recognized around the nation. I definitely enjoyed the tour and the hospitality was amazing!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Texas at Dallas is an amazing school for students who wish to pursue a STEM career. The facilities are all new, and the teachers are well-informed and provide great information for student success. However, the school lacks programs outside of STEM careers. The Arts and Humanities majors are not well funded, and there are not enough classes available in these majors to expand them. UT Dallas should focus on making an effort to diversify their school in terms of what non-STEM majors they make available to their students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, The University of Texas at Dallas is a great school. The campus itself looks beautiful with its water creek like passage and new facilities. On top of that, the school offers access to several amenities such as a recreation center, an extensive library, a bus line, shops, and a handful of places to eat. The school is not much into sports, however, as there is no football team. Due to that fact, student life is also a bit lacking. That being said, there is still a place for everyone at this school with multiple fraternities and sororities, as well as over two hundred clubs. Now, where the school truly excels at is with its academics. Full of talented professors who truly know their stuff, and a helpful staff, students will find themselves actually enjoying their studies.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UTD is a nerd school. Everything you have read on that topic is 100% correct and there's no getting around that fact. You are surrounded with very smart people who are 25% Dallas-locals and 75% other. There is a very large international student population at UTD and they are incredibly competitive. In Dallas, UTD is considered the "smart" school, SMU is the "religious" school, and UT Arlington the "dumb" school. People are very friendly and open and there are a lot of opportunities to have fun and join clubs. The faculty is very friendly and open as well, and most of them like to joke and be light-hearted. The buildings are very modern and the campus is beautiful, not too big nor too small either.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is focused primarily on academics with leisure and other activities being secondary. If you intend to have fun you'll probably need to make an effort to find a good group of people to surround yourself with. It's not particularly difficult to do so, but it's not going to jump out at you like it would at more "recreational" campuses.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I'm going into my senior year this fall and I've made lifelong friends and enjoyed my time here as a psychology major. Although, to anyone interested in attending, this school is a heavily mixed bag in terms of community. Academics are at the forefront of this school, and I'm certain STEM majors flourish here. UTD keeps on expanding and building new educational buildings, and has been awarded a lot of grant money for scientific research. The school more-so socially diverse than it is ethnically. For lack of a better phrase, the school's weird and quirky, with a lot of different communities. As soon as you've become settled in a friend group and ignore what you don't really "vibe" with, you're bound to have a better experience like I am so far. There are a lot of free movies and events that you're likely to miss out on if you're not really tuned into what's going on on campus, so it's best to be on the lookout for what students call "finesses." In terms of housing, ratings vary, because it's dependent on where you live-- be it the dorms, the apartments in University Village, Canyon Creek apartments, and the off-campus (but also across the street from campus) apartments at Northside. I personally live in one of the Canyon Creek buildings, and since they're the newest built, they're the best maintained. Cleaned indoors and groomed outdoors weekly, with a concierge desk for packages, and PA's that let you go about your business, Canyon Creek is overall enjoyable. Unfortunately be ready to walk, skate, or bike a distance to class, because it's almost the farthest from the center of campus. The freshman dorms are pretty good too, you don't have to share a room or sink, the toilet and shower are in separate bathrooms, and you're closest to campus. PAs are also always available to help you with lockouts, packages, and general questions about the college. UV sometimes has bug problems and poor maintenance, and I hear horror stories of the tenants at Northside treating the apartments like animals--vomit in the hallways or elevators, trash chutes packed to capacity, loud parties, you name it, it's probably happened there. In terms of eating, as soon as you become a Sophomore and aren't required to get a meal plan -- DO NOT GET ONE. Its overpriced and the food plan isn't worth it, you're better off buying groceries year-round. Even if you eat out all year, you'd still probably be spending less than what the options are, which is upwards of $2000 PER semester. Walmart, Tom Thumb, Target, Aldi, and Kroger are all relatively close to campus. Make a conscious effort to get there, be it with a friend or by bus. Overall rating I give this school is 4 out of 5 because I think there are more ups than downs of attending here. It's a weird school, but it's also full of intellectuals and genuine people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For STEM students, this school is a great value option. There are many research opportunities and study groups to help you succeed in the challenging academics. UTD is known to send many students to medical school. However, if your interest lies in liberal arts and fine arts, it will be hard to find content and various classes to choose from. This school may not prepare you to get a job afterwards if that is your major. Compared to other schools, there are less interesting classes to choose from because UTD is focused on classes that will get you the degree. There is no football here, so there's a lack of school spirit sometimes. There are many clubs to choose from though. A couple big things on campus are the anime orchestra and the internationally ranked chess team. Also, the food is bad and there has been reports of contamination. Thankfully, there are other dining options off campus nearby. Overall, if you want to save some money and get a job afterwards, UTD is a good choice to come for school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Your groups will be very niche depending on your major. It's best to make connections your first and second year, these connections will be your lifeline in the future. The professors are human, they will try their best to help you in whatever situation as long as it is within reason, but you have to reach out to them and offer to make up for what you could not do.
