University of Dallas Reviews

449 reviews
All Categories
The academics are good, but attendance is REQUIRED by almost all professors-most of my professors are willing to drop someone from the course if they have missed more than four classes.There is a two year program of required core courses covering all subjects required to graduate. This is well rounded, but the courses are often difficult for required courses and I know students who have lost their scholarships for courses they failed in (that had nothing to do with their major)
The administration is messy--many I know have been overcharged, undercharged, or otherwise shortchanged by the business office, which struggles to get things done or communicate with itself. The food is poor. The internet is also bad quality. Mainly due to the horrendous trouble the business office has put myself and everyone else I know through, when my brother started searching for colleges I advised him to search somewhere else.

I like the strong academics at this university as well as the friendly and fun atmosphere in the community of students. There seems to be a place for everyone. The location of the school is excellent. It is situated in Irving Texas (which I love Irving!) and is 20 minutes outside of Dallas. The school offers a "once in a lifetime" study abroad experience in Rome, Italy. I highly recommend this study abroad program- you will not regret going to study and travel in Europe for a semester!
All the staff at the University of Dallas were really welcoming. I would not mind going to the college to attend school because of how strong the Liberal Arts and Business programs are there. Plus, they have a Rome program to travel to a different country is exhilerating. Although it is expensive they do give you a financial aid package that covers most of your costs to attend the University of Dallas. The staff do really care about you and your existence is definitely fulfilling its needs as a valued college school.
