My overall experience has been very fun, it has mainly consisted of my studies and it's amazing to see that everyone is very concerned about their studies as much as I am, all you see is dedication and hard work everywhere. There is nothing that I would like to change, I have made many new people that have the same interests as me and am glad to call them my friends, the education here is very serious and you learn easier and have a good connection with all the sources available here. It is an amazing school to be at!

The University of Texas at Dallas is a science and researched based university with professors that actually care about you. The academics are tough but through good studying techniques, the classes and grades you receive will be very rewarding. Unfortunately, there is little to know party life at this school, being a big commuter school with okay frats and sororities, as well as no football team. Thankfully A football team is in the working, so hopefully the party and social aspect of the school will pick up soon!
UT Dallas is quickly growing, extremely diverse, and academically prestigious for it being a relatively young academic institution. I have had the privilege of being in several classes with top tier professors. There is no shortage of extra curricular opportunity. I really liked the SI and PLTL opportunities for each class, and the willingness of many of my professors to meet outside of class time. On the downside, however, the social scene is seriously lacking. I would not recommend UTD for someone looking for a typical college experience. Because the school is so diverse, English often times appears to not be the primary language used around campus. The customer service for many on-campus businesses is also seriously lacking.
