2 College Junior

Nightlife: There aren't really parties on campus, you usually have to go off campus for that.

4 College Junior

Scholarships: The aid is there, but the biggest aid (university scholarship called AES) is stuck in place based on your high school scores and isn't adjusted even after you bring all your grades up to 4.0 status.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: They are there, but they typically don't cause trouble.

3 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Once you've seen the sites after the first year, there is not as much to do.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I did not have any problems with the ATEC major, nor have i heard people have problems with any of their majors.

College Freshman

Majors: I have not had an internship, I do plan to have one though. I do have concerns, but only because my field is constantly growing and ATEC has become a popular major.

4 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The food is really good for cafeteria-buffet style food. There are two dining halls, one just built, and the halls do get very crowded. The variety of food is great, there's anything from salads to pizza and burgers. Students have dining dollars which they can spend on restaurants on campus, but personally i think meal plans are outrageously expensive.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The availability of off-campus housing is great, but some communities aren't as safe as others. The convenience is great because a lot of the communities off campus are within 1-5 miles from campus, and DART pickups are available to those who live there.

College Freshman

Greek Life: I don't belong to greek life, so I wouldnt know anything socially related to greek life, but i did hear it was a lot of fun and the students are very accepting.

5 College Freshman

Academics: In the ATEC program, there is a lot of diversity when it comes to what career path you want to take and what classes you want to take. The workload is about the average workload of the average college student, but the work is definitely different compared to the other majors on campus. The internships in the ATEC field are abundant, there are constantly workers from Gearbox and software companies looking to hire students from UTD.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The professors at UTD definitely differ from major to major, but the curriculum in my major is great. The registration process is confusing at first, but the advisers are always happy to help. I usually study with a friend in their dorm, so I dont really know where a lot of people like to study.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I'm not into partying, so honestly I wouldn't know where to go or how the parties are on campus.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: From experiences and listening to conversation on campus, internship opportunities at UTD are outstanding. UTD has one of the best internship programs i've heard of and the carrer center is extremely helpful.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are great, but the class size ranges anywhere from medium to extremely large. The variety of courses offered at UTD is insane, I love it, especially being an ATEC major.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors are very helpful.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The process was very easy

4 College Freshman

Facilities: All student are very active in every aspect

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are a number of places that offer discounts

4 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: The student have the power to change policies

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: You can find then if you want to find them.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There are people from wherever.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: It does not affect it very much

4 College Freshman

Academics: They have an excellent student center office.

4 College Freshman

Academics: There are a lot of resources available!

2 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Check ahead of time, look at all options.

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.
