What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it. Being Dallas there is so much diversity. Putting in that into a school, it is almost impossible to find someone that is not from your ethnicity. That is what I love about the school, its diversity. The spirit is definitely there. Although it has one of the worst mascots in the history of educational institutes, I think people prioritize school spirit over their mascot.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this school. I started at UTD as a very shy and introverted student (a large population at this school you will notice). But, this large amount of people just like me really encouraged me to come out of my shell. I was able to thrive at UTD, were as at a different college, I would have been swallowed in the crowd.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Texas at Dallas is a good school. In recent years, it has tried to build an on-campus community with dorms and apartments close to the school. Although it is primarily a commuter school, the school tries to create a great sense of community. Sports is not a large culture here. The soccer team is great as well as the basketball team, but more of the acclaim is given towards academic team achievements. The teachers are good. They keep regular office hours so it is possible to get help and build a relationship with them. The classes can be tough, especially the STEM classes, but overall I think the school is fine.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD) is a research university with eight schools and offers 140 academic degrees including science, business, technology, arts, engineering, economic, political and policy sciences. The main campus of UTD is in Richardson, Texas which is 18 miles north of downtown Dallas. It was initially started as a private research facility of Texas Instruments in 1961 and its three founders were Erik Jonsson, Eugene McDermott, and Cecil Green. This research facility was later renamed as Southwest Center of Advanced Studies. It was not until 1969 that it joined the public University of Texas system and came to be known as The University of Texas at Dallas. The University is well known for its research activity and it has been associated with four Nobel Prize and has members of the National Academy of Sciences and National Academy of Engineering on its faculty. Some of the research projects at this University include bio-engineering, space science, behavioral and brain science, cyber security, and nanotechnology. This University is ranked #1 for best value public university in Texas according to Forbes; ranked #2 as the fastest growing public doctoral university in the country; and according to the Princeton Review been rated the Best Value College for seven years.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UTD is a great University. As a CS major I have access to wonderful individuals and resources that can aid me in my university journey. By constarts, individuals looking to major in a non-technical area should maybe look at other options because in my opinion UTD carters towards a more technical crowd and thus, students who want to major in business, art, and or film will be at a disadvantage.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love University of Texas at Dallas. It is a small university but it gives off a large campus vibe. There is always something going on around campus, so it's never boring or dull. The professors are very knowledgable and the class sizes are small enough to be able to receive personal help if needed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love my university! I am pushed to strive for excellence as the school is academically competitive. It gives me an edge to compete. I have gained skills that I had not shown before, including valuing time management, discipline, and community unity. UTD has opportunities for whatever field a student may be looking for. It is always keeping students informed about current events through email. I love the buildings, the students and peers, and especially the faculty. My professors truly know their professions and do an excellent job of passing on that knowledge to students. I truly feel valued as an asset.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's okay, there are some pros and cons. My experience is normally based on the phrase: what you put in is what you get out of it. I can say that many of my professors advocate for mental health and the student counseling center is fantastic. Since the school is relatively small the class size can be large in the beginning but dwindle once you get into your classes for your major. On the downside, many students here already have their friend group from high school, making it somewhat difficult to make friends. As a business major, there are so many different resources to use, such as the CMC, a department for business majors that help students improve on basic skills need to thrive in the industry. The business requirements can seem a bit jarring but it's understandable. The downside to that, many students are required to have a generic resume and required to do the same thing as hundreds of other students, making it difficult to stand out.

The people here are great to be around. I enjoy the diversity; I feel this school is very welcoming of all people. Professors are nice and are willing to work with the students. Resources are provided for almost anyone going through any sort of difficult time.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's not well-rounded in terms of equal attention to all schools, but the experience is what you make of it. There are still great opportunities to make connections with faculty members, join clubs, and work on campus.
