Overall, University of Dallas is a great school. I love my professors, and the academics are fantastic. The Core Curriculum classes are very eye-opening. Plus, everyone is very welcoming; I feel at home here. Unfortunately, it is a very expensive school, and there are not a lot of places nearby.
The experience started off rocky, but I grow to love the campus more the longer I'm here. It has a very close-knit community and it is easy to make friends because everyone is so welcoming. Sometimes it is like a bubble because there isn't much around campus, but that only pushes you to go on weekend adventures with friends.
I think it is an amazing school. If you want to have a safe place to study while making friends that you will keep for the rest of your life, this is the place for you. The campus is a nice size in Irving Texas. People are open and will always say hello to you on the way to class.
If you're looking for a college with a solid Catholic environment and rigorous academics, this is the place for you. You will see priests and sisters in habits every day, and the students love them! Be prepared to put in a lot of study and writing time.
Compared to more strict Catholic colleges like Christendom, UD is lax. There isn't much of a dress code to speak of, smoking on campus is common, and students drink but it is not a necessary part of the social life. If you were homeschooled, you will fit in here, there are a lot of us!
Overall, this is a great school but definitely not for everyone. You really have to experience the "UD bubble" for yourself to know what it's like.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for University of Dallas is 80%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
Take the SAT early, apply to and visit 3 colleges early ,and apply for housing and financial aid to at least I private southeastern U.S.A. college, early on.
My classmates are predimantly in their last teens and early twenties, Catholic with conservative opinions and views and for the most part are happy and go-lucky young people.
A catholic , academically excellent , ambitious , kind ,student.
I brag about its academic standard.
The University of Dallas is best known for its basis in the Liberal Arts and its Catholic heritage. It has a "Core" Curriculum which is widely admitted to be impressive and a good foundation for a liberal arts degree. Every student must fulfill the "Core" requirement, no matter which specific major they are studying. The "core" is most impressive because it links everything a student learns from the University of Dallas together and different parts of itcan be applied to their major and even to daily life.
The worst thing about UD is also the thing that's going to ensure that I get a quality education. The classes are ridiculously hard, and everyone who goes there is really fighting to keep their scholarships.
In my opinion, the University of Dallas most effectively provides the academic, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual needs of the faculty and student body.
The most unique aspect of the universities that I attended for undergraduate and graduate school was the class sizes. The smaller class sizes allowed for one-on-one attention from my professors, and created an environment that was lively and interactive. I was never just a number in the herd. I was an individual and I was able to make personal contributions and receive personal influence.
BOBCATS!!!! and the general wildlife of Irving, Texas. The art department buildings are separated from the rest of the college and located in the woods surrounding the campus. As an art major, I walk through the wooded paths to class every morning. While in drawing class, a student staring our the window yelled, "There are cats out there!" The class subsequently ran over to the window only to have our professor exclaim that those were 3 baby bobcats climbing in the trees! Just the other day I was walking in those woods. Now I am constantly on alert for wildlife!
As a philosophy major, I love the philosophy department at the Unversity of Dallas. The philosophy department demands an education from crucial texts as well as a thorough examination of the material. It is a great place to study philosophy.
Someone who isn't interested in learning a lot and doing a lot of school work. Students much work hard and learn a lot to suceed. Also someone worried about financial burdens and getting loans. This school is expensive and paying for it isn't easy without help.
Sometimes I feel I was cheated out of my monies worth, need to have dedicated lecturers that give us real stuff, its costing us time and money.
UTD a good school. I spend most of my time in SOM building or the library. I wish there was more stricter rules on keeping the library a study places some people can be inconsiderate. The cafeteria we need more healthy choices and have more flexible hours for the graduate students who only come in the evening.
I don't know yet. I'm going to be a freshman soon, but I've yet to actually go there. Perhaps the only frustrating thing would be finance. I'm a low-income student and I wish there was more help for me to pay for school.
TGIT, Charity Week, Oktoberfest, and Groundhog Day all provide students with an ideal opportunity to interact with their peers before becoming lost in the throes of midterms.
Many people, believing students at UofD are awkward and churchy, are surprised by the normalcy of the students they find. UofD admits hard-working, determined students, homeschoolers tend to fit this criteria. But so do many other young adults from many walks of life, bringing a well-cultured atmosphere, creating an alternate demographic, free from the constraints of social norms.
