The university is really diverse and includes a lot of non-traditional students including international students and commuters. Also we are known to be an academic school.

The University of Texas at Dallas is viewed by both current and prospective students as an academically oriented commuter campus. The campus has largely embraced this stereotype and even finds pride in it. While you would never find over 1,000 students attending an athletic event, a quick look at the Total Comet Move Facebook page provides a glimpse into UTD's spirit. This stereotype is, on balance, accurate. Some of the things that contribute to UTD's nerdy image is our lack of a football team, our unbeatable chess team, and the relatively large number of international students who come here to study engineering or business. Despite this, it's definitely possible to still have the "normal" college experience at UTD. Joining a fraternity or sorority opens up the door to parties and a healthy social life. Intramurals and club sports are also pretty popular and will help you meet new possible.

UTD is stereo typed as a nerd school. It's not a nerd school everyone here is just really nice and open. Sometimes you'll see people dressed weird or you'll meet people that have unique personalities. It's not as bad as the stereotype makes it out to be.
