I enjoyed the student environment at UT Arlington because there are endless opportunities to get involved on campus. I especially enjoyed participating in the Baptist Student Ministry on campus. The staff at UT Arlington desire success for their students and were extremely helpful with any question I ever had. There are study session for almost every class I took, which saved my grade several times in a couple of classes. The campus is also clean and safe, which is important to me in a place where I spend much of my time.
UT Arlington is the fifth most diverse university in the country! Experiencing so many cultures was an incredible experience which I am strongly grateful for.

Bachelor of Fine Arts Design Program is Top Notch! I'm a Rhode Island School of Design Scholarship winner with EASY entry into any USA top Fine Arts Schools after getting the AP studio portfolio coveted 5. UTA hires unexpected & top notch working professionals including Award Winning Advertising Creatives. They are easy going in class without the portfolio reviews of North Texas. But IF you work to get the A, you walk out with an impressive original student portfolio that impresses the Pros. What you get out of it is based on your personal effort but guided by Pros. Spending 6-12 additional studio hours weekly is expected to earn an A. C & D Design students are earning a "fun" degree but looking toward a Professional Football Career or a non-related Job Promotion. The Campus is lovely with architectural tiers reminiscent of Mountain architecture. Architecture & Glass Blowing programs are great too!
The advisers, at least the freshman ones, are horrible and have no idea what they're doing. The honors one that I've delt with has been great, but my freshman adviser, Katy, was terrible. I had incoming credit from high school, and when it came in I had to completely change my schedule. They stuck me with a business adviser when I'm a nursing student! It completely ruined the order of my classes, and I've been left to figure out my own schedule. I came in to plan my second semester and she asked me what classes I'm taking! I'm worried that this will really screw over the rest of my college experience there. However, I've met some really good friends and everyone is so nice. Most of the professors have been good, and Honors College is cool to be part of. Campus is nice and has good facilities, and the dorms are very nice for what you pay. Overall, the school is a good deal for getting a nursing or engineering degree. Otherwise, I'd go somewhere else.
