Students Say

Though nowhere near the size of some of its fellow state schools, UT Dallas provides its more than 12,000 undergraduates with a wealth of resources, financial aid, and opportunities, striving for “a future of talented and smart individuals.” UTD has “one of the best tech schools around” and draws a good deal of students to its STEM programs (one student lovingly calls it “the nerd capital of the UT system”), causing a senior computer engineer to remark: “Engineering and the sciences for the win.” The school is without many sports programs (notably football), but instead “emphasizes academics, which is what we are all here for.”
Administration is responsive and invested in UTD’s growing reputation, and the school “grows and changes year by year, continually getting better and better,” with students acting as “a big part of that process.” Someone is “always willing to help you with any problem you encounter,” and the tutoring available also “really helps in understanding the material.” They are dedicated to their students, this being apparent in “their open office hours and timely replies to e-mails.”
Most of the professors “are very enthused about what they are teaching and genuinely want us to learn,” and bring new topics to light through “very informative” discussion. “Their passion for their subject make it easy to love your classes!” says a student. “I get pushed academically, but I love it,” says another. One of the shining benefits of UTD is the chance to get “actively involved with the faculty in research,” which provides “several opportunities for honors, and ultimately allows you to prepare for a continued education after undergrad.”

Bottom Line

UTD undergraduates give their alma mater high marks on its dedication to rewarding academic performance with financial support. While at $11,806, the annual tuition price at UTD is higher than some state universities, the school exudes willingness to subsidize all or part of its students’ education: 71 percent of UTD students receive some form of aid, only 43 percent of students incur debt to pay for tuition, and the average cumulative indebtedness is $19,613. Students see overall value in their UTD experience even beyond scholarships; one notes that he enjoyed “excellent and extremely affordable/convenient,” living facilities, “especially in comparison to other college housing options offering the same services or lower-quality ones for double the price.”

Bang For Your Buck

For high-performing students, UTD can provide the ultimate value: a free education. As a result of the Academic Excellence Scholarship Program and others, UTD attracts many of Texas’s best and brightest with competitive scholarship offers: a striking number of students name scholarship funds as one of their top reasons for attending UTD, and the Eugene McDermott Scholars Program, which covers all expenses of a UTD education, stands out as a hallmark value opportunity. Several hundred Academic Excellence scholarships are awarded each year. Like the university itself, its ability to offer financial subsidies to its students is growing rapidly: “An ever-expanding breadth of degree programs and capital improvements,” one administrator explains, “promise to push the university to the fore of education excellence” in the future. And on the employability point, UTD’s Career Center “sponsors on-campus career expos, externships/job-shadowing programs, internships, and co-ops and industrial-practice programs in conjunction with the Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.”

Students Say

There is “no clear majority of one race, creed, or background” at UT Dallas. Since most of the “exceptionally nice” and “very diverse” people are here for the sciences, there are “lots of smart people everywhere” and “everyone here is so open about the geeky side in everyone.” Most agree that there could stand to be a bit more of a creative voice on campus and the school would do well to attract “more students to fine arts.” Most students are “serious about their academics, but not too serious” and remember to take the time to relax; “video games/card games and…anime” are popular here, as are clubs and organizations.

Students Say

The “well-kept campus” is “not too large,” though “parking is a bit of an issue sometimes” and the “dining hall is pretty bad.” There is a lot of studying going on, so “you can always find a group or just a lot of people hanging around on a specific area studying.” “Some people practically build shrines to their GPA’s and worship them on weekends,” says one sophomore.
A lot of students commute (which makes life “pretty quiet”) and there is no football team to rally around, so “it’s hard to have a lot of school spirit”; however, “the social scene is definitely growing,” and the Student Union acts as the “hub” for the entire school where “students can mingle and find friends.” Computer labs also give many the chance to game and have fun (the video game culture is “strong”), and “there are usually always at least five to ten gamers in the room at once.” The school provides “many things to do,” with campus events like movies happening every week, and people often leave campus to seek more options, such as “movies, bowling, shopping, skating, concert, etc.”

Sustainability

Thanks to a number of recent sustainability initiatives on campus, UT Dallas certainly earns its place in this guidebook. Last year, the university opened its first LEED-certified building. The Student Services Building, certified at LEED Platinum, features solar thermal hot water heating, storm water collection tanks that are reused for landscaping, low-flow lavatory fixtures to reduce water consumption, and large windows for plenty of natural daylight. UT Dallas has recently commissioned an Office of Sustainability, which seeks to “mitigate UT Dallas’s footprint on the environment, to raise visibility and awareness of environmental issues on campus and the community, and to engage UT Dallas students, faculty and staff in developing sustainable policies and practices.” To accomplish this, the Office of Sustainability has put a particular emphasis on recycling in recent years. Amongst many other items, the university collects cardboard, aluminum, plastic, and paper (the university recycles more than 1.5 million pounds of paper each year!) in order to minimize the amount of waste it sends to the landfill. The dining hall collects food scraps, which the landscaping and grounds crews use to support the university’s growing composting program. The facilities team is also pitching in by ensuring that 100 percent of cleaning products are Green Seal-certified. Proactive students can join the Students for Environmental Awareness (SEA), which works with major environmental organizations in Dallas like PATH and the DFW Green Alliance to increase sustainability awareness and promote environmental action.
