5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I really love the school going to campus it truly is my second home as professors are welcoming in office hours.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: As the school has such a strong reputation finding a job is not hard.

5 College Senior

Health & Safety: I don't feel scared walking to my car after having an evening test.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: I always enjoy going into the resident halls to study they provide a very home and cozy feeling.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Students are always promoting their clubs and sororities and always looking for people to join them.

2 College Senior

Athletics: There is not a huge hype on sports as the school is pretty small and does not have sport scholarships.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: After my first semester I really enjoyed my experience and found so many amazing people. I would recommend UTDallas to anyone who asks!

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There hasn't been any crime on campus since I've been at UTD, but a few years ago, sexual assault was an issue, and the victims felt that they weren't taken seriously.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For students in engineering, the workload is a lot more than at other universities. The bioengineering department is very unorganized, and if the student has a problem, the instructors doesn't take your concerns seriously.

2 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The dorm I lived in was very old. When I first moved in the air conditioner was completely broken, and housing refused to send someone out to fix it until March of the second semester. There have been multiple gas leaks in just one year, and often times the residents would have to go to other dorms to using the restrooms and showers. The internet loses connection quite often, and this is really difficult when you have online courses.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is a huge range of sports on campus, but many students I've talked to say that they are required to practice and workout almost more than they have time to study for courses.

2 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is mainly focused on research, and many of the instructors have the "I don't care" attitude.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great academic atmosphere, diverse student body, interesting classes. Administration is lacking in organization sometimes, but i have had no major issues.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: The campus is very ethnically and racially diverse-though it does still have a majority white population-and many organizations exist to unite people of the same ethnicity and/or race as well as celebrate different cultures. The multicultural center is also a great resource for students, especially international, that want to make a home out of UTD There are over 100 options for getting involved on campus religiously, the school even provides a special prayer/meditation room for students who wish to use it. There are 3 politically based groups, that I am sure of, and a few other groups are, at least somewhat, politically active. There are two LGBT+ groups at UTD, both of which are greatly supported by the University's Women's Center, one of which is very active in trying to make and enforce policies that help and protect LGBT+ individuals; however they face barriers on some issues when it comes to the rest of the University. The LGBT+ community itself is very supportive and connected for those who seek it out.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Options for classes are pretty great if you know how to look. Professors are a hit and miss here at UTD, "Rate My Professor" is your best friend. Class style and size vary greatly depending on department and the teacher which is both a blessing and a curse.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: UTD produces high quality degrees with high quality futures but it is tough, there is almost no alumni network because alumni take jobs and break their backs working long hours to pay off the massive student loan debt that comes out of UTD. Recruiting on campus happens quite frequently, the career center is awesome, super friendly people, almost always busy whether it's preparing for a career fair or helping students they don't miss a beat!

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: New Title IX office was added which completely revamped how the school faculty and administration handles news of even possible Sexual Assault, but it's still in its beginning stages and has room to grow. Campus Police are very friendly and open to helping anyone for any reason, but they seem to be few in number compared to the size of the student body. Emergency call stations are everywhere.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Peer Advisors (PAs) are awesome in the dorms! There are no good low-income housing options near campus and University Village (UV: the on-campus apartments) Maintenance is pretty slow I hear. Dorms are nice, amenities are good, social atmosphere is decent. My personal Dorm Building was the furthest one from the main part of campus so not too convenient, just depends on luck though. Apartments are expanding, there is a new University sponsered complex being built across the street from UTD called Northside, looks promising but will not fix the lack of low-income housing opportunities.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Love the atmosphere but the campus is so diverse and disconnected from each other that people can be very apathetic.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The housing amenities were good, as was the building. The main downside were the students who, other than being cliquey, acted like they left their parents' house without actually learning how to take care of themselves and become functional adults.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I came here to learn, network, and be prepared for a successful career and UTD prepares your for just that. Everything else takes more effort (meeting cool people, finding decent places to eat, etc) because it has an alarmingly large geek population and a lack of social scene (probably because there's a large amount of commuters). Nontheless, this STEM school is great for preparing you for the job market.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: No one feels uncomfortable walking at night. Everyone laughs if people ask us if we feel safe. It not a lame school but the students there respect each other and do not harm others. I feel UTD created this environment through the way they choose applicant to join their school. They choose students who have ambition and goals for their future. they choose students who look to their college to help them succeed. We have parties like any other school but everyone who parties know college a stepping stone to something greater so no one tries to jeopardize their standing with the school, because UTD is serious about drugs and bad behavior.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Because UTD is a local school in Dallas this provides a lot of alumni to give back to this school. Alumni usually go to work for firms and companies in Texas because Texas has a lot of job opportunity. And it is super easy to get a job if your are in the business and engineering schools. The career center is in contact with a lot of companies and UTD host career fairs that expose students to openings and companies. Networking is really important and UTD gives many opportunities for their students to make those relationships or their careers.

Greek Life: We do not have Greek housing but the Greek life is involved with their other chapters from other schools. So Greek life here involved in service, cultural, and on campus events. Its like any other student organization. A lot of the student organizations here feel like a co-ed fraternity, so if you join a fraternity or sorority it makes no difference.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
