UTA is predominately a commuter so there aren't usually a whole lot of activities occurring on campus. However, if you try and get involved there are a lot of clubs that have activities and fundraiser a few times a semester. The campus is beautiful, I always preferred to study outside. Most of my professors were great and I was able to develop lasting relationships with several of them. Most of the buildings are on the older side with most of the funding going to the engineering and nursing programs but the biology program wasn't too shabby. The Mac, the gym on campus, gave you the opportunity to play just about any sport you wanted to. And even if you don't like the fast food food on campus, there are lots of other places to eat fairly close by. There is a hub for Vietnamese food only a few streets down which is delicious!

Starting college was one of the most amazing yet scary things for me. As a freshman, I would be attending one of the largest schools in Texas along with thousands of other people. At first glance, UTA seemed intimidating, but once I realized that there's more to it than just class, I began to truly enjoy it.

Even though I consider myself an introvert, it became easy for me to engage in conversation with people and make new friends. If you ask me, the people who are a part of UTA are the reason why this school is so great!
I had a great experience overall in the University of Texas at Arlington. It has great food, and has many opportunities for students! Campus life is amazing also, there is many places to visit within campus. The area that it is around is also amazing. Arlington has theme parks and even has the Texas Rangers ball park near. The gym is so spacious. There is a big track space where you’re able to run however you’d like. The basketball court is amazing too! Let me talk to you about diversity. I have been searching for a school that has amazing diversity and I can talk about this school very well. I felt comfortable being who I am. There is endless opportunities when you are attending the University of Texas at Arlington. There is a right amount of student to teacher ratio as well. You have opportunities to network with people and time to ask your professor questions! Their basketball team is amazing and they are even working on expanding their sport options. Awesome university!
