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!

Pretty standard freshman housing. I've heard New Dorm is nice, but have only been in the lobby. Biggest key to dorm happiness is choose wisely! Gregory is the messier of the two freshman male dorms, and many athletes live there. Madonna is cleaner and usually quieter, but always expect kids to be in the lounge and kitchen, along with girls primarily from Theresa. Theresa is generally the most quiet and religious girls, strong connection to Madonna. Both are on the East side, along with O'Connell. O'Connell is generally transfers, and is a ladies dorm. Jerome is a lot of outgoing girls and many athletes. Along with Greg and Augustine on the West side. Greg and Jerome kids are the freshmen most likely to be outgoing and go out on weekends. Augustine is offices downstairs and living space for girls upstairs. Amenities are standard, each dorm having: 2 floors, common bath and shower, lounge and kitchen, with a bathroom in the lounge (mostly used by opposite gender guests). The biggest issues are the dorm open house hours and the strictness. There is virtually zero tolerance, and some RA's will write you up for instances in which you pretty much have to plead 'no contest' because the Resident Coordinators often don't care what you say and take the RA's word over yours 10/10 times. Open house hours are only til 10 on weekdays and 1 on weekends, so that means no people of the opposite gender in the hallways or your room after (or before the hours start each day). Also, the door bolts have to be opened in order to prevent the doors from closing when someone of the opposite gender is in your room. It is utterly ridiculous and shows no respect for the judgement of the students.

The University of Dallas is a very small school so the community awareness of the student body is not very good, although the marketing department of UD is trying to get our name out there (radio ads and billboards). However, the local community attached to the University are in love with the student body! This university attracts a very specific type of student, that is capable of being a leader and excels academically. We are not a university centered on being the best sports team, but we do pride ourselves on working extremely hard academically and enthusiastically growing spiritually as Catholics. It does not matter if a UD student is volunteering, working a local job, or simply visiting a nearby theater, the community is always impressed by the demeanor and courteousness of the UD students they encounter.
