This past semester was my first since transferring. This college has made the transition so incredibly easy! The advisors are always available and extremely helpful. All of my professors have been wonderful in the styles of teaching and ease of access if any help is needed. The campus is beautiful, and provides a long list of tools to help any student to succeed. Some of these tools include workshops to gain certifications in programs such as excel, torturing labs for just about any class, and even mock interviews and resume building to prepare students for their future careers. I love UTD!

UT Dallas has a great return on investment. They place a lot of emphasis on academic growth and career success, and many students are offered generous scholarships during their undergrad. If money is a concern for you, I would strongly consider applying and seeing what scholarships you earn, because that was the deciding factor for me when I was in high school. Social life is lacking a bit but improving overall. It's important to get yourself out there and get involved in organizations, people I know in Greek life have also really enjoyed their experience. UTD is fairly close to Dallas and has a modern-type campus with many new buildings recently built. Campus food is excellent now with many options, there is also a full Starbucks store on campus.

Overall, UTD is actually a great school that focuses on academics but has also improved in many other areas recently. If value is a crucial factor for you, I would strongly recommend going here for college!
As a community college transfer student, I love experiencing university life. The campus is pretty lively for a non-traditional school (i.e. not a football-oriented atmosphere). It has its downsides since I would like to be experiencing those things, but at the very most, education is my top priority. I definitely get the best of the best as a student here. The faculty is helpful and supportive, classmates are productive and interactive. It's difficult to get both. I'm really lucky to be a part of this environment!
