3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys and girls are okay. The importance is that I made some friends which is better than having no friends. The students looks are good and they have some interests. The social life is okay as well and the relationships is ok too. People dress what they want to dress to feel comfortable about themselves

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I only have classes in the business building and because of the class requirements there are a lot of students who are in business attire. It gives the building a very professional feel.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most of the students will become comfortable in what they wear because of the fact that their parents will not be supervising them every day.

Guys & Girls: Most students are Asian/ International, so there are a lot of different accents & religions/ customs you can learn about. There are some Indian students who don't use deodorant but wear cologne and others who don't do either, so if you're majoring in computers, get ready to hold your breath or carry a spray with you. For the business school, most students are Asian or white, with a few other minorities, and a lot of students work outside of campus, so night classes introduce you to a good variety of people. The most popular majors on campus are related to computers/engineering, business, and Arts/Technology, with Behavioral Sciences (Psychology, etc.) getting more popular. Behavioral Sciences has mostly female majors and everything else has mostly guys, but business is a pretty equal mix. I'm an older student, so I don't find many guys attractive, but if you're a "normal" aged freshman and you like nerdy guys (I mean the type that have a panic attack if their 4.0 drops to a 3.98), you might find a boyfriend. Otherwise, it's a great school for education. You have to be proactive in seeking out a social life, as it started out as a commuter school for older career types going back to school. The website is awesome and easy to use, and professors/advisors/TA's are super helpful, you just have to make the first move.

Guys & Girls: Not the place to find someone attractive and start a relationship with but if you want to connect on more of a intellectual level this is the place for you.

The average UT Dallas student is OK-looking, crossing a bit over into geek territory. However, there are attractive students on campus—some very attractive ones, too—and most of the time, they’re friendly and open to conversation. Student athletes are generally the fittest and hottest people on campus, and there are quite a few of them. Unfortunately, for guys, the male-to-female ratio puts them at a slight disadvantage to find romance. The majority of students is not into partying, and one can hardly find a party animal on campus. Good parties do exist, but you often have to know the right people and go off campus.

Short-term romances driven by lust aren’t typical of the dating scene at UT Dallas. People date quite a lot, then fall apart or form longer-lived relationships. Many hold on to their high school romances or remain faithful with their long-distance lover. A few people opt for abstinence, even when they’re good looking and confident enough to get very decent dates. Once in a while, you will hear stories of nerds-turned-hotties, which is quite indicative of the social scene where different groups mingle and befriend each other without noticeable reservation. Joining a fraternity doesn’t mean leaving your "Modern Warfare" buddies, unless you deliberately choose to do so.

Social Scene
While they don't party a lot, UTD students in general are sociable and friendly. They play sports, join clubs, do volunteer work, and attend campus events to meet new people. Friend circles-usually built around ethnicity, study major, and mutual interest-are visible on campus; however, most students belong to several such groups, and they are not afraid to mix it up a little every now and then. You will also see fraternities that welcome Asians, nerds playing Xbox with "cooler kids," or skilled athletes showing novices how to play sports, as proof of a nonhierarchical society. Of course, there are people who never step out of their comfort zones, but the typical UTD students are those who welcome diversity, eagerly make new friends, or simply start a conversation with you at The Dining Hall.
Hookups or Relationships?
While casual dating is a popular option, the majority of students seems to look for some commitment in romances, and those with long-distance relationships are serious about keeping them. People are easier at parties, flirting around a bit or exchanging digits, but it rarely goes wilder. Classes, club meetings, and parties are all good places to meet new people, but there is no real "desperate" dating spot that can ensure success for your love pursuit.
Dress Code
The general dress code is simple: Don't run around naked. At a university of 20,000 students, nobody-perhaps except for everyone you know-cares about what you wear, so just put on whatever clothes you're comfortable in. Pajamas and workout outfits are common, but if you feel like dressing up for a change, go for it. Summer weather really favors shorts and T-shirts, while winter barely gets to a point that you need your snowsuit on. On the whole, business students tend to dress better than others, mostly because they're attending a meeting, presenting a project, or sitting in an interview. Whatever your major is, though, definitely bring business attire-at least business casual-so you will have something to wear for the more formal events.
Did You Know?
On March 22, deemed "Pokemon Day," many students dress as characters in Pokemon-Ash, Misty, Team Rocket-touring around campus and taking photos with anyone willing and interested.
