The professors, people, staff, and Core are amazing! I am a science major and it feels like I am double majoring in Biology and the Core, but it is totally worth it. You learn so much and bond with so many people it feels like home. The liberal arts education given at UD is better than I expected. If it were easy it wouldn't be worthwhile, I love the challenging classes.

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!
The University of Dallas is a highly conservative institution in which minority students, LGBTQIA+ students, and those with more left-leaning political beliefs will face significant challenges and weak or adverse responses from the administration. I must temper that statement, however, with a nod to the Human and Social Sciences department. That department has provided an oasis of acceptance and support. However, many other aspects of the university have proved problematic, even unacceptable, in a 21st-century climate.
