Going to the U was an interesting experience. I met a lot of people I love and a lot of close-minded individuals who I wish I hadn't met before as well. As for the diversity of the school, it's not that great BUT the campus is beautiful (although I was quite annoyed with all the construction and the fact that I would be graduating before I got to experience those new buildings). I was apart of the greek system for a little, which I WOULD NOT recommend, it's horrible. Join ASUU or any other student clubs or organizations because those are where you'll meet the right people. The professors were decent, I think we can all say that we have had our fair share of good professors and absolute trash professors. Overall, it was an okay experience, and some of the things I was able to do with the school (not a lot because they give everything to the business majors/program) was fun. The MUSS is life even though most of our athletics suck. Sco Utes though!

I love this university, it has opened up so many opportunities for me to be involved and be active in choosing my career and future path. The professors are really great and understanding and really know what they're talking about. The students here are really nice and very kind to peers. The food here is amazing with good prices and really great seating areas where it's nice to socialize with peers. This is a great campus and great university with amazing resources such as, the library, UTA Trax, and food courts!
Just visited! Mountain trials just off the campus. Buildings are individually beautiful, each with own architecture. I can see myself going here. Great resources for students, great research opportunities. Easy to get around, a city school with good transportation. Can't rate the rest until I go here.
