This school is globally recognized and extremely diverse. There is a strong Chinese, Indian, and LGBT presence, yet our multicultural center supports organizations representing all walks of life. The campus is lively despite there not being a football team. Our basketball teams are our pride. So are our accounting and business degree programs. Wide variety of study abroad opportunities and not a day goes by without a fortune 500 company visiting to recruit. On campus dorms and apartments- you get your own room in both but still get to have roommates. Nearby apartments off campus. Everyone is friendly! Food is also very diverse. Easy to be a vegetarian here. Tuition for texas residents 13,000 a semester. We have professors from Stanford, universities in China and India, from all over, theu can connect you with important people.
Review University of Texas - Dallas
The University of Texas at Dallas is a science and researched based university with professors that actually care about you. The academics are tough but through good studying techniques, the classes and grades you receive will be very rewarding. Unfortunately, there is little to know party life at this school, being a big commuter school with okay frats and sororities, as well as no football team. Thankfully A football team is in the working, so hopefully the party and social aspect of the school will pick up soon!
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.
