"Great school with great professors and large variety of classes available. It is located in a safe, new development area of Dallas. Campus continues to grow. Recommend visiting the campus. You will be surprised! Students focus on gaining good education & not on sports."

Degree: Political Science

"Good school, growing. Policy school was clearly less of a priority for the University, but school itself doesn't seem to suffer. Very knowledgeable professors, but there is a focus on quantitative methods."

"UTD was a fantastic school for me. I went to a couple other institutions before going to UTD, which had been right in my backyard all along. You won't find the cultish college pride you get at UT Austin or A&M, but that mindset isn't for everyone. It wasn't for me. UTD is a lovely campus, and they are expanding more every year. The faculty in Behavioral & Brain Sciences is phenomenal. I took a course called "Careers in Psychology" that served as a catalyst for me to enquire about being an undergraduate volunteer researcher in a lab. This was one of the best experiences I've ever had. This ended up getting me a summer research position at the university, and the summer position (coupled with work I did with the elderly) led me to become a clinical research coordinator at a prestigious university when I moved out of country. My husband also had a positive experience starting in high school as a Nano Explorer at the Nano Tech Institute. He stayed with Nano Tech through undergrad and a masters, and he is now a PhD student out of country. We may go abroad again for his post doctoral fellowship in the next couple years. The people at UTD can get you wherever you want to go, even if you don't know where that is yet. Take advantage of internships, labs that take undergraduates for volunteer research, any opportunity you can to help supplement your degree with experience - something to put on a resume. UTD is diverse. There are opportunities to meet people from many walks of life. After experiencing places that weren't right for me, UTD felt like home."

"UTD is a young, growing university with lots of cool stuff going on. It's much more focused on science and technology than fine arts, but there are a handful of really great literature professors, particularly Southern lit. And lots of scholarships!"

"Great Computer Science / Electrical Engineering college at the university. The fact that Texas Instruments helps fund so much there, there are so many opportunities to expand from the basic coursework."

"UTD has a very good reputation and is about to become a tier 1 university. I sent out resume and shortly employers were calling me back. most undergrads either continue in advanced degree or hired shortly after they graduated. However, getting into the school was pretty selective. Must have good High School GPA and good resume."
