    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!

    I am about to finish my freshman year at University of Texas at Arlington. Not only is this college known for being diverse there are also so many ways for students to meet and make new friends. UTA holds many events throughout the school year. For example, there is ooze ball which is volleyball in the mud. There are clubs and fraternety's that come out and sell food or art work. There are many opportunities for students to do well in their classes because UTA has recently offered free tutoring. There are also many places around campus for studying as well as hanging out with friends. UTA has allowed me to make new friends and do well in my studies! If you're looking for a fun, diverse, and academic focused school UTA is the place for you.
    The University of Texas at Arlington is a pretty nice school. Plenty of majors, and lots of people who go here. Don't quote me on this, but I'm pretty sure that at least 45 thousand students attend this school, and that's not including those taking online classes.

    Lots of the funding this school receives goes towards STEM related majors, which is good for you if you're interested in that field. Engineering majors are a big thing here, and from my understanding there is a really good nursing program here as well.

    Being a music major, my department is not the most well-funded, but I still really enjoy the professors here!
