University of Texas - Dallas Reviews
I currently attend UTD and will be a sophomore in the Fall 2019 semester. I like how it's academically rigorous and mainly keeps its students focused (competitive school grade-wise) yet the professors care about us taking the right steps to succeed! The professors make themselves extremely available IF the student is actively willing to improve how they are doing in a specific class. However, there are other ways that UTD could improve student life. I commute and find that most social events occur during the evening when I must be back home as well as many of the organizations' meetings. UTD must have a better way of promoting it and should invest in a more interactive app for all of the social events to be posted on! I feel that not everyone goes on the Galaxy website and look at the Comet Calendar. They host plenty of study sessions and academic events but not enough is done for the social side and if that were to be refined the university would be at an even better standing.
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!
UTD offers excellent financial aide and scholarships to those who need it, so I've found my education to be quite affordable the past 3 years. While it doesn't have the liveliest social scene, there are still plenty of clubs and organizations students can become a part of to make friends and enjoy the "college experience". The school has great academics and really prepares you for future careers!
