4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Sometimes it is scary to walk across the parking lot at 10pm when my class ends. Although there is lighting across the lot, sometimes the security officers aren't there to escort you to the car. I know you can call them, but I will feel safe if I actually saw them outside watching the students get into their cars. Tip of advice: Carry pepper spray just in case.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: My favorite experience so far was rushing for my sorority. This was my way of getting involved in school and the community. I absolutely loved it! There are other cool organizations is the fraternity and sorority life isn't for you. There are endless organizations for everybody out there!

5 College Junior

Majors: I am very happy with my program. I believe it's one of the best on campus! I'm not worried about struggling to find a job after I graduate. I know I will always have the support of my peers and advisors.

Majors: The most important criteria for admission is taking the THEA exam. Take it when you feel ready and make sure you prepare for it. There are some helpful sites online. Take the required classes as soon as you can to be officially admitted and make sure you pass.

UT Dallas isn't all about academics: Its coursework isn't the heaviest of the region; professors are lenient on students at times; and there are few reasons to pull more than three all-nighters a semester. Neither is it a party school where the frats rule campus, nor an athlete's school of big games or a cultural center of arts and literature. It is a little bit of everything. In fact, UTD is so hard to define that many students struggle at first to identify with it. They once dreamed of the Ivies, Rice, or UT Austin, then either failed or could not afford the education, and "ended up" at UTD. And yet, a vast majority of students say they would still choose UTD were they to do it again—more than 80 percent returns every year. Strange as it seems, the mysterious appeal that is UT Dallas eventually touches students' hearts and souls.

If one takes some time to think about it, UT Dallas has always been amazing, if not extraordinary, throughout its history. The face of the campus changes constantly, with new buildings, renovations, and expansions, many of which are fueled by student activities. After all, the hidden connection that begins to bond UTD students and faculty together probably isn't academic rigor, financial aid, or aesthetic qualities, but a burning aspiration for and determined will to change—for the better, that is. How this journey will end—or whether it will end at all—no one can tell. Nevertheless, at this moment, the belief is strong that UTD, as well as its members, will succeed in its mission to shatter the status quo.
