5 College Senior

Campus Strictness: Like I said: medical school. We are strict, and we demand excellence from our staff, facilities, and students.

3 College Senior

Nightlife: Again, married and living off campus. However, with the lack of student housing or Greek life, parties are likely to happen far from campus. As a grad school, very few people here are underage. And if you are interested in partying, drugs, or underage drinking, you aren't likely to make it at our school.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Dallas has world-class dining, wonderful mom-and-pop restaurants, and every chain you could imagine. No matter what your budget or tastes, you will never go hungry.

5 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: Dallas has it all: museums and culture, sports, amusement parks, and a vibrant night-life. The metroplex is an excellent place to be single or raise a family.

3 College Senior

Parking: With no real student housing, distance to dorms isn't a factor. Parking is plentiful, and public transportation is convenient and cheap, so cars aren't necessary but also not a nuisance. Parking enforcement is strict but fair.

3 College Senior

Athletics: We are a medical school, so sports aren't important. We have an excellent student center with outstanding equipment, lots of intramural sports, and a gorgeous campus to walk/run on, but no intercollegiate sports.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I feel that this school has given me a world-class education and an environment that encourages learning.

4 College Senior

Computers: World-class library with many, many computers, private and group study rooms, free Wi-Fi, and excellent tech-support. Also many satellite labs.

3 College Senior

Campus Dining: I pack a lunch. When I do eat it's decent.

3 College Senior

Guys & Girls: I've been married for almost a decade. I'm happy and have no interest in my classmates.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: I have no clue if it exists at my school, no interest in it, and no opinion one way or the other.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Finding an apartment to stay in off-campus is easy, just very expensive.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: I received the aid that I needed and the process seemed to be an adequate and take the fair amount of time and paperwork that you would expect.

3 College Junior

Weather: It is a great campus, but the community can be a bit dangerous. Also, parking in very slim, and some of the equipment in the classes are very old, or many times may have technical issues. Also, accessing the internet in some places is troublesome.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: If there is a drug scene at UT Southwestern, I am unaware of it. I don't know of anywho who uses drugs. Although alcohol is used socially from the popular crowd, it is done off campus and in the privacy of ones home, not on campus.

2 College Senior

Weather: Its very hot during the summer. The spring can be scary when storms come due to tornadoes. It can also snow in the winter and no one knows how to drive in it.

1 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Haven't started school yet, and this is a graduate program, so I am not so sure there is a Greek life.

3 College Freshman

Majors: It's a medical center, so the selection is limited, but the programs are renowned!

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: We have VPs in every class that are responsible for organizing the social functions for the class. They often do night parties, which can be cheaper for students and a nice way to get together

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: It's great campus, and the school works hard to keep us safe! However, it's in a lower income area of Dallas, which has its own implications. I don't feel in significant danger though.

5 College Senior

Academics: The Nursing program at Southwestern is great. In one year you achieve your LPN. They do not accept everyone, so you are placed in a class where everyone wants to be there. The class size is small and you get a lot of attention from teachers. The supplies they have are also excellent.

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere is pretty upbeat. It is fairly close to downtown Cincinnati. Traffic on the expressway is a little tough but besides that, it is easy access. There is a mall located across the street. Close all in one stores such as Walmart, and plenty of places to grab lunch. Everyone one here is very nice and respectful. There is a minor league team in town called the Florence Freedom and all the Cincinnati teams are only 15 mins away. There is not many other colleges too close though.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drug Scene – I've already passed the drug scene/ alcohol scene when I was an undergrad. I don't see drugs or alcohol around campus. I don't know anyone that does drugs or drinks excessivly. There are campus cops around, but I've never scene them having to encounter anyone.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: UT Southwestern is a diverse school. There are a lot of different nationalities at the school. There aren't that many different looks. You don't have "punks" there or "thugs". It's a medical school, which most people are doing their masters programs. Most people have outgrown those looks by the time they get there.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorm Life – I really can't answer this question. I own a house in a different city and commute to school daily.
