WHAT I LIKED

Diversity and hard work are the names of the game, with plenty of opportunities for fun. The faculty, staff, and other students are supportive and helpful.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Be aware of all the resources provided no matter what university you attend. Housing is difficult to get into plan accordingly. Parking can be an issue just like most Universities, the permit you need will depend on when you take classes and how far you are willing to walk. I recommend gaining an excellent understanding of the DART system for which we can get a free dass.

WHAT I LIKED

There's brand new housing available for students and the campus is beautiful. Most of the students are serious about their education and that is the vibe you can expect here. There are plenty of social clubs to join if you're interested in meeting other students. The main drawback is that on-campus dining is not something to write about but there are SEVERAL excellent restaurants near campus so make sure to try them out.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Dining services could be better but nearby restaurants take care of this.

WHAT I LIKED

I honestly really like the University of Texas at Dallas, however, it is a bit of a smaller community since many people commute so I think if you want a more quiet school then this would be good.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I don't really like the dining halls, they are definitely not great.
