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!

I am a single mother of 2 girls (9&7) and I am finally finishing my degree in want I want to do. I am in the teaching program and the teachers are wonderful! They really take the time to help, especially professor Glenda Mitchell. My teaching advisor Miss Little has been wonderful in helping me finishing my teaching degree.
I have had friends that have gone through the teaching program at UTA and all of them have gotten jobs before they have even graduated. There are high praises for the teaching program at UTA Arlington.
I am truly impressed with the way the professors are really there to help you out. And if you cannot make their office hours they accommodate you with a different time so they can assist you.
I am very impressed with the math program at UTA Arlington. I honestly did not think UTA Arlington was that good of a college until it started going there. I am very impressed.
UTA is an incredible school with very motivated and focused students. Our professors are impeccable, and our peers are even better. Diversity is REAL here, and its absolutely beautiful. We meet people from all over the country, AND the world. Also one of the most affordable schools! Also very military friendly.
