The advisers, at least the freshman ones, are horrible and have no idea what they're doing. The honors one that I've delt with has been great, but my freshman adviser, Katy, was terrible. I had incoming credit from high school, and when it came in I had to completely change my schedule. They stuck me with a business adviser when I'm a nursing student! It completely ruined the order of my classes, and I've been left to figure out my own schedule. I came in to plan my second semester and she asked me what classes I'm taking! I'm worried that this will really screw over the rest of my college experience there. However, I've met some really good friends and everyone is so nice. Most of the professors have been good, and Honors College is cool to be part of. Campus is nice and has good facilities, and the dorms are very nice for what you pay. Overall, the school is a good deal for getting a nursing or engineering degree. Otherwise, I'd go somewhere else.

UTA is the best school in the world. UTA is so diverse that it is a representation of the world. I've met countless people who just moved to America a week before school started! Everyone is so friendly regardless of where they grew up, what language they speak, and what culture they come from. The culture at UTA is so unique that it can't be found anywhere else! Everyone has such a passion to succeed and thrive in their desired area of expertise! Becoming a Maverick has been the best decision of my entire life! I couldn't picture myself at any other college or university. I've made lifelong friends that I couldnt image living without! Everyone at UTA is so welcoming and encouraging! I meet someone new every day! The Maverick way is the best way! Go Mavs!
Professors here are great and down to earth (most of them). Books from the campus bookstore cost a lot, but Chegg.com is a lifesaver. UTA places a heavy emphasis on diversity, but even more so on acceptance. KINE department is wonderful. I am glad that there is not a football team so the other sports don't get swept under the rug. I LOVE that there are wheelchair basketball teams here! So many great opportunities!
