UTD is a great school! Only thing that I wish we had was a football team, I usually go out to my friend's colleges to go to their football games so that's how I manage with that. Classes are very difficult and that's a great thing because professors here really want you to have some experience in your field; academics are what I would say the university is mostly focused on. Also, I just want to put this out there, people say that UTD is not a party school and honestly, it's not that it's not a party school, there are a lot of parties on and off campus, it's that most of the people on campus are not "westernized", we have a lot of students from asian countries and their mindset is not focused on studying. I'm in a fraternity and I'm great friends with people on the soccer and baseball teams on campus so parties are very, VERY easy to find, usually Thursday to Sunday there is some type of party or kickback going on.
