The University of Dallas fosters an independent education and teaches students how to approach problems in the real world with a foundation in classical resources. The students attracted to UD are hard workers, naturally intelligent, love celebrating life and love making deep and meaningful friendships. Thank you UD for helping me be the best person I can be!

Equipped with a rigorous core curriculum and a close-knit community, UD is a nourishing campus. Some crusaders may complain about the reading done at UD, but UD teaches its students the truth about living. We’ve all read Homer, Milton and Dante by the end of our first year in addition to Aristotle, Plato and Aquinas! It’s not just an education based on the sciences but a well-rounded one. The campus is built with boring architecture but within those walls are a family of students and staff who hold on to unique traditions. Groundhog week is only a sneak peek into the energetic and creative life of a crusader. I love UD if there was anything I could improve at UD that would be the Asian Food section in the cafeteria!
The University of Dallas is a 4-year Catholic liberal arts school. The university has an awesome core curriculum that every student takes for a total of 60-70 credits. I find this very useful as students are able to gain both a wide array of knowledge useful in other classes, as well as direct you towards a field of study that interests you. UD has an amazing study abroad program for a semester in Rome, which is really a capstone to the end of the core studies that allows for an overall grasp of what you have studied the past few years. The teachers are brilliant and are always willing to help you learn, as well as classes are small which allows for meaningful class discussions a lot of times. The students are all so kind and helpful, as the campus is arguably one of the safest in the country with little to no crime. The only thing I would change about my school would just be renovating the campus to a more modern era style. Overall, this school gets a 5/5 stars!
