3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: A lot of my friends live off-campus. It is safe as the communities are usually gate-protected, but it is kind of expensive.

Off-Campus Dining: Off-campus food is alright, but the majority of the places are closed.

3 College Senior

Administration: They are not too shabby. But in terms of police work, they are extremely strict.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: I'm in a frat. So I live the frat life. So the school doesn't really matter.

Scholarships: I received a full ride scholarship as well as a stipend, so I would say the scholarships are pretty on point.

Campus Food: Overall, the availability of food at non-peak times is kind of suspect.

4 College Senior

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: The school is consistently posting and emailing about housing off-campus that is available for students.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: They have a lot of good restaurants in Richardson. They have a lot of ethnic options which I appreciate. The Thai food around here is amazing, Thai Soon is the best.

4 College Freshman

Administration: They really aren't that strict if you follow the rules and are discreet about things. They are pretty fair and kids shouldn't be trying to break the rules anyway.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I don't party. I study day in and day out. I guess if you're into that kind of thing, I have heard that the Greek life here throws a lot of parties. So get involved with that?

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: For the most part the process for FAFSA here went smoothly. The only issue I have had is that sometimes the deposits into Ezpay were a bit slow, but for the most part they were extremely helpful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: For the most part the campus food is okay. The hours can be pretty restricting unfortunately, and if you don't arrive at a peak time you wont get any food.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My peer adviser has been extremely helpful and the dorms themselves are very spacious and clean compared to older college campuses.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: sports isnt a big part of school at utd

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: dining hall food is horrible and there isn't a lot of variety in other options

5 College Freshman

2 College Freshman

Local Area: Richardson is definitely not a normal college town. It's a regular suburb with nothing to do unless you drive to downtown Dallas. The late night dining options are very limited, if any, in Richardson.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: If you like super nerdy computer geeks this is the school for you.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is not important here and no one pays any attention to who is in a sorority or fraternity. They don't have special housing or anything. It's more like a simple club here.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Either you will be in sketchy apartments or super expensive apartments. There isn't any in between options so try to get on campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: You have to drive a bit to get somewhere good late at night, which is annoying if it's a study break food run.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
