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!

This university takes its growth seriously. It strives to make sure that every student, from all walks of life, feels safe and welcome on their campus. It is a beautiful campus tucked away from the bustle of a city that feels very down-to-earth just like their melting pot of domestic and international students. I just wish there was more space so more people could get to come here!
The University of Texas at Dallas has been a very wonderful school and I've never regretted my decision since I started. What I love most about UTD is the diversity, different foreign countries are represented in the school and being an international student myself, it's been very welcoming and also nice to interact with people from different backgrounds. In addition, Utd has over 300 student organizations and it's comforting to know that there's a community for everyone. As regards academics, it's been superb, the friendly relationship encouraged between professors and students is indispensable. UTD is really a great place to be.
