What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's an alright campus, and your experience depends on your major. For example, the Engineering and Computer Science South building REEKS and is full of the most antisocial and/or unhygienic people you'll ever see, but the professors are top-notch and the coolest. The ATEC building is the most creative and has the most chill professors you'll ever meet, AND their doors are open for any student regardless of major! I can't say much about the other fields as I've never really spent a lot of time there. The library is great and grand. The librarians help immensely with research and can help you find what you like too. The on-campus food is alright. The Starbucks is nice but they run out of products sometimes. The food court in Student Union is NICE, though. Dining Hall West has some really dry meat and lackluster food, but it gets you through the day. The residence halls (dorms) are nice and your experience can vary, depending on which one you get into. Each one has its own kitchen, TV, ping pong and pool tables, and friendly staff that you can easily approach. If you order something online, your package will be delivered to the front desk for you to pick up. Each residence hall also has its own laundry rooms with vending machines with medicines (Tylenol, Advil, etc) and snacks. Pro tip: Res Hall West is the best, sign up for an LLC when you get the chance so you can live there. There are also on-campus apartments but I haven't lived in one (yet). Overall, this school is what you make of it. There are events and the same circles that you see in high school, but there are many chances to socialize around campus. If you're a quiet wallflower this place will seem depressing, and vice versa for when you're involved. You'll have so much freedom as compared to high school, so take that chance and get involved.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have visited the school a couple of times and every time I visit the university I have another reason to love the school. It seems like a home away from home and the people I know here are going to be my lifelong friends. There are many opportunities to grow as an individual and as a student.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is developing and a lot have changed (including new buildings built) since I graduated. The professors are nice mostly, but some classes can get hard. Usually nobody is there to play and everyone has a goal to meet. Greek life is definitely growing bigger and bigger. UTD is a nerdy school and I absolutely love it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Texas at Dallas is a great campus that provides excellent academics. The faculty members are extremely helpful and accessible. The students are friendly, and always willing to help. In my experience for the past year, I enjoyed the campus and helped me achieve my goals by pushing me to my limits. Classes might be stressful, but there are several resources to help students who struggle. There are also several clubs and organizations that help students create networks with other students or staff members. Overall, I'm proud to be a comet!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I First arrived at the university of Texas at Dallas, i was quite shocked as too how quite and reserved of a school it really was. it terrified me initially to realize that this is where I will be spending the next 4 years of my life, but little did I know the people I would end up meeting there would end up changing my perspective of things. The people and you make it what it really is, I love UTdallas.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Texas at Dallas is an excellent school overall to attend. The academics at this school is the best feature here. The professors are great at teaching, they are enthusiastic about what they teach, and they are willing to help you. A long with great academics, the school is very safe. Police patrol the campus throughout the day and crime here is very minimum. The food choice here is good. There are many food options such as, fast food, buffet, café, and food trucks. If your vegetarian or vegan, they have good options for you as well. These places can be paid for using your comet card with a meal plan. Some nearby food places off campus will give you a discount if you have your comet card with you. The on-campus housing is not that bad. The price is not too expensive; however, the housing has a few quirks like the toilet not flushing sometimes. Cleaning facility’s come with the apartments and you do not have to pay to use them. As far as off-campus housing, it is expensive and hard to live on your own unless you can split the price of the apartment with your friends. The best option is on campus because it is much more affordable and you can use your financial aid to help cover the cost of housing. UTD offers quite a few extracurricular activities: ones that fit your major, community service, Greek life, sororities, hobbies, etc. There are extracurricular activities here that fit everyone. Overall, UTD offers a great education and selection for each person’s interests while being safe on campus.

The university is kept in good condition, with new buildings being constructed on a regular basis. The university cares about students receiving ample education opportunities and facilitates that with good equipment and good professors who are passionate about their topics of instruction and engaging students in learning.

University of Texas at Dallas has my heart. This beautiful campus has trees and fountains everywhere. It has a wide range of stem related programs. I've heard the professors are always there to help which will be extremely helpful. I love how spectacular the labs are and how much opportunities are available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love this school. The professors are great. They have been so helpful every time I need help. One time I overslept and was late for a test and it was my professor emailing me, reminding me of the test that woke me up. They really care about helping the students learn the material.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion, The University of Texas at Dallas offers extremely competitive academic learning while providing good resources to help students excel in their classes. Outside of the classrooms, social life is not commonly found unless students pursue people themselves.
