Loved UTD!! Professors are great, education is solid, and campus life is fun (you just have to get out there and involved) I was part of the first class to live in the dorms and completely loved it. They're modern, clean, comfy, and have amazing gyms now I hear.

It's not too big but not too small of a school. UTD has pretty much all that you would need.

There are many interesting events that go on throughout the year. My favorite eventhings was the silent disco we had last fall semester. It was a great way to welcome incoming freshmen into college.
