The University of Texas at Dallas is a great school. It is very prestigious in academics so if the freshmen are not prepared they may get overwhelmed quickly. If you manage your time well and do not fall behind you will be perfectly fine though. There are a lot of international students at UTD, so the campus is usually filled with people doing homework or assignments. Do not let that discourage you though most internationally students want American friends that will teach them about American culture. There is usually something always going on in the student union. Clubs recruiting or selling some sort of treats ( my favorite are the cupcakes from Sprinkles. The food court is second to none they have a panda express and a Chick-fil-a subway a full Starbucks on campus and more. The teachers there are some of the best that I have ever had but they do expect you to come to their office hours and work very hard. People play ultimate frisbee and four-square and spike ball in the common areas outside. One of the downsides is that freshman is required to live in the dorms their first year and the applications for student housing for sophomores and above are extremely slow and cumbersome. If you are interested in clubs student government is one of the largest clubs and if you are particularly religious there are three main Christian organizations on campus. I would recommend FOCUS ( Fellowship of University Students) I made most of my friends there and they have many social events outside of their weekly meeting time. It is not very handicap accessible campus the buttons to open doors are always malfunctioning and some of the ramps are super steep
The school is perfectly located in a suburb of Dallas. It was nearby everything that Dallas had to offer. The students population was diverse and safe. The campus was was undergoing renovation and updating making it into a beautiful campus. I enjoyed my years there and would recommend it to anyone.
UT Dallas is a growing school that is trying to adapt to the rapid growth. WIth this campus is easy to find your way around and there are multiple places to on campus that you can eat at. One thing prospective students shouls be aware of is limited parking! Many students commute to campus and parking spaces fill up quick, also parking is not free. Students and staff can purchase parking pases at the Transportation Office, but pases are pretty pricey. But, UT Dallas offers students free DART passes that are issued through the transportation office which allows students to venture out and about in the city.
UT Dallas was an exceptional choice for an undergraduate institution. It is a renowned university in terms of its curriculum, faculty, and academic rigor - all things you experience first-hand as a student. The Naveen Jindal School of Management provides the right learning material for a student to understanding their degree in business and its fast-track program is a great way to leap start an MBA. UT Dallas is a growing school, which means that scholarship opportunities are plenty here. The university as a whole is commendable in its efforts to provide student aid, relevant curriculum, and excellent career coaching, should a student need it.
A growing campus that is continuously improving. The constant construction while I was attending (which was a lot worse then than it is now) was a little annoying and a little bit of a hindrance but the results have been worth it so far. Future students will be attending a much better campus with much better facilities than current alumni. I believe, in time, all current alumni will be proud to say they graduated from this institution. However, one thing that is a little concerning is the parking situation, which only seems to be getting worse with the increased construction and expansion. The other side to this is that the school is shifting from an almost exclusive commuter school to one with a tremendous increase in students living on or very close to campus. This should hopefully alleviate the parking issues somewhat and make it less of a problem.
University of Texas at Dallas has a great program for pre-health students, such as dentistry, optometry, physical therapist, pharmacy, and many more. Honestly this degree has well prepared me to enter the pharmacy world. I was able to learn more about the different healthcare careers and the US. healthcare system. It was main reason for me getting accepted to my top choice for pharmacy school for this upcoming Fall!
I am completely satisfied with my choice of undergraduate college. I majored in secondary education with a specialization in social studies. I received a job right away from the connections made while at UTD. They have a great reputation in the teaching field and you truly build many networks while there with multiple school districts. Schools come looking for UTD teaching majors due to their effectiveness when they graduate!
One of the very best school for Criminology. Like Mike said, scholars here are top rated in the field. The school is no joke and will hold your feet to the fire, so don't think about coming here to "wing it." You will have opportunities to teach and produce peer-reviewed articles. Take that opportunity! I promise you that your instructors will know you because class sizes are small. The campus is awesome and beautiful, as they just spent millions on renovating it. One of the best return-on-investment school you can find, and the school is very understanding of the needs of military students!
I loved UTD and it was a phenomenal value! I actually have 3 degrees from UTD, a BA (1996), MBA(2000) and the PhD(2011). I worked as a TA for a year there also. It was a memorable, enriching experience and I just loved every minute of it. It is considered a great school nationally with excellent professors as well.
I have been very pleased with my time spent at The University of Texas at Dallas. Not only is there a growing network of alumni, but the students that UTD produces are of the highest caliber in each of their respective fields. As the school continues to grow so does the respect for it and the recognition of the excellent students that graduate from there.
