I like the strong academics at this university as well as the friendly and fun atmosphere in the community of students. There seems to be a place for everyone. The location of the school is excellent. It is situated in Irving Texas (which I love Irving!) and is 20 minutes outside of Dallas. The school offers a "once in a lifetime" study abroad experience in Rome, Italy. I highly recommend this study abroad program- you will not regret going to study and travel in Europe for a semester!

I love studying at the University of Dallas! The school's focus is definitely academics and community, and you can see it all over campus. No matter where you go on campus, there are little tables and chairs, big windows and good lighting. I love the discussions I get into on a daily basis with the people around me, whether I know them well or not. The campus is pretty, too. A bit old, having not been seriously renovated since its establishment in 1956, but nonetheless charming. I really like studying here. It suits my personality perfectly-- quiet, studious, and friendly!

Perfect school for me. We have a really unique Core program and study abroad program in Rome. With our own campus and professors we have the advantage of a program of the same high standard with immense opportunity for travel and widening the learning experience. The campus community is incredibly valuable; the people here all value academics and experience and really look out for each other. There are academic, athletic, and travel opportunities, as well as the opportunity to increase one's faith life. They are constantly working to address student's issues and concerns. The University of Dallas has provided me with a place to pursue academics, understand other cultures, foster meaningful relationships, and become a person I'm proud to be.
