3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are very nice and people are very friendly. There is a large common area where many people play ping pong, chat, and play video games. The social atmosphere is very welcoming and the amenities are very nice. The dorms are very new and each student gets a single room to themselves so there is a lot of privacy.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at UT Dallas is fairly new but they host a lot of events on campus. People join Greek life at UT Dallas for the connections and benefits.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: UT Dallas isn't very known for its athletics program but it does have a world class chess team. With the lack of a football team, the chess is the pride of UT Dallas in the athletics department. But many people are involved in Intramural sports like basketball and soccer.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Coming into UT Dallas, I was very nervous about college. I joined a club called Epic Movement and become very involved in that club. It is a Chirstian club where I felt very connected to all of people and joined a tight knit community. I met a lot of friends and enjoyed many experiences with them. They are some of the most amazing people and they really helped me through difficult times of my life and I am very grateful to have met them. Without going to UT Dallas, I would have never met them and my life would not be as great as it would be now if I haven't met them.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are generally good at their fields and class size is not a problem.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Finding a job after graduation depends on your field, but in my field, its a 50/50 task.

3 College Junior

Athletics: I don't really know as I am not a part of them.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: My favorite experience with the school is the diversity in it.

3 College Sophomore

3 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: all of my classes have been interesting and were taught by professors who really seemed to care about the subject

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: every student in jsom is required to have an internship to graduate, so there are staff dedicated to helping students get internships. many big companies come to utdallas to recruit graduates for jobs

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: relativley safe campus with numerous security masures

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: the cost is expensive for not that many ameneties

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: almost anyone can get into a frat or sorrority, they dont do very much volunteering

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: my friend is on the tennis team and ive never heard a complaint about the facilities so i guess theyre fine

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: everyone is very nice at this university and the courses are challenging while still being interesting

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Extremely diverse ethically and LGTBAQ community. Teachers often have accepting stickers on their doors. The international community is large and very connected.

3 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Drug use is prevalent, but mostly people who partake in vaping. Alcohol is used, but not especially widely and peer pressure affects almost none of it. You have to search it out/be friends with those to get involved.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I had very good experiences with all of my professors- even the professors that weren't great- they were good enough for an A with little work overtime compared to the other professors/their students. They honestly do care and seeing them in office hours can change grades through their help.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have found it so easy to get help for jobs. I have been included in research work since the start of my freshman year. It's been absolutely amazing to have these experiences at the very beginning of my college career.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are some bike thefts, but I do not think there is anymore of a security problem. There was a random death in the dorms during my first month, and it was handled very well as for services and help for the students in that floor.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorms are very sociable places to start, I suggest it. Your rooms are separate from your roommates and you have a PA who actively encourages you to go to events if you need that social push. It's easy to join any group on your floor studying or playing video games ( which is big everywhere in the dorms). Honestly a great set up of dorm/suite rooms and the dorms are really suitably close to classrooms. Only drawback is the housing administration can mess up roommates, but they do respond to work order fairly quickly.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no off campus housing for Greek Life so it hurts their party life, but it is there for parties if interested. They also do a lot more of social work.

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.
