    TWU is a great school for any one who doesn't want the cost and hassle of the larger universities, but still would like the feel of one. It is a very cozy home away from home. It has a friendly atmosphere, it's not very expensive, and if you are a Health Science major, this is one of the top schools to choose from- especially Nursing and Kinesiology.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for financial aid EARLY! Get to know your advisers before classes begin. Visit the campus to see if you feel you will like it there. Talk to current students who are majoring in what you intend to major in.

    TWU is not as expensive as other universities but you learn just as much- if not more!

    Am enjoying being here

    The city is a very college oriented city with both Texas Woman's and Univ. of North Texas being a few miles from each other. There a many things to do since the weekend begins on Thursday night. There are lots of places to eat and there is always something to get into that's affordable and safe.

    Every teacher will take the time to help their students if you let your presence be known to them. They will help you to reach your goals and better understand the course material. If you introduce yourself to them and show genuine interest in passing their class, they will keep their eye on you and be very helpful. In addition to learning inside the class, you learn alot about how other people from different backgrounds differ from yourself and it helps to make you a more well rounded person.

    Students interested in Nursing or any other medical major. Students who are serious about their education. Students who do not find homecoming and football games important Commuter students: TWU is a great school for commuters who live in the area. Students with a family or Nontraditional students: This school is no stranger to nontraditional students. I had a woman in my class who was 55 and we are great friends today! We also have a daycare and a playground for children. However, I would not recommend the daycare because I have heard that they cost too much money and only watch your children for a small amount of time. I still say this school is great for students who have a family because our classes teach so much about family structure, and child development.

    Tips for prospective students

    Find friends that have your same goals in mind. Watch who your friends are because you do not want to have conflict in a small school this can make things uncomfortable and awkward when you run into someone you just got into argument with the previous day. Keep yourself busy by joining various organizations and communities around school. This makes you feel better about not going to parties and getting drunk every Friday night. Look for an apartment your sophomore year of college. TWU has a new policy where they will not allow you to live in the dorms if you are 21 or a junior/senior. The on campus apartments can be too hard and very expensive to get into. Get ahead of the game. You are better off finding a cheaper apartment and a roommate to split the cost with in apartments around Denton.

    Bang for the buck

    TWU is not too expensive and they have great financial aid and scholarship opportunities. However, paying for an expensive parking sticker when there is barely parking can make you irritable. Paying over a thousand dollars for a food card when the food hardly changes and does not offer enough healthy alternatives can also make your irritable.

    Am enjoying being here

    TWU is not a party school. In fact, our definition of fun is helping an organization in need or debating about the hottest topic. However, this also means attending this school can feel like all work and no play. If you are not careful, you can overwork and stress yourself out here.

    Am learning a lot

    Pride, dignity, and liberation are words that come to mind when I think about Texas Woman’s University. This school has a personal goal to make sure that every man and woman that attends knows of the struggles woman went through in the past and the subliminal messages that keep them beautifully ignorant today. This school is serious about what it stands for and the education its students will receive. You will be surrounded by educational stimuli everyday. There is no way you can attend Texas Woman’s University without learning something that may change the way you see life forever.

    This is a great deal for a 4-year university! Compared to most others in Texas.

    The campus is wonderful, it is a very small campus...and you can get from one end to the other in under 10 minutes by foot. Most of the buildings are very old and give it the real college campus feel. Most people are very friendly here and very social.

    I am truly learning a lot here. The teachers are for the most part very helpful and determined not only to get you an A, but to get you to learn.

    School is majorly BORING!! One maybe two events held a year,and you must have a social life through North Texas University which is two minutes away.

    Some professors really did step out of their way to help students. Also class sizes are tiny so you have a easier time concentrating and learning.

    Tips for prospective students

    just remember to always keep your focus cap on ,because you are here to work on getting that well earned degree. Make sure to have everything organized so deadlines are not missed. Form study groups if you need help studying. Always remember to have some time for yourself. You'll need a break in between sometimes so don't stress!!!!

    Texas Woman's University is a great school for any type of student. There are many programs to help you find help if you need it or just a place to turn to if you need to talk. They offer everything you need.

    Tips for prospective students

    You'll love it here. There are so many organizations to get involved with and help you find your home here. Everyone you meet will make you feel so welcome. This place is home to many now and we're just waiting to open our doors to whoever else would like to join our big family.

    Bang for the buck

    The cost to attend is not that bad either. It's definitely not as expensive as most schools but its not real cheap. I come from a family with not a lot of money, but Texas Woman's University is definitely worth every penny we pay.

    Am enjoying being here

    I absolutely love Texas Woman's University. It's a beautiful campus and the staff here is amazing. Everyone is so nice and they do everything possible to help you with anything you need. I am very happy with my choice to go here. It was my first and only college choice, as soon as i took my tour of the campus all other choices went out the window. I knew that this is where I belonged.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning more here then I thought I would. I was so nervous that I wouldn't be able to keep up, but the teachers here are amazing. They really know how to explain things in a way that you can understand.

    I believe TWU and Denton, TX is an awesome place for first time students especially. The campus is small and not overwhelming and there are many clubs and organizations that cater to any and everyone (its also a great way to meet people). The dorm life is welcoming with many activities right in the dorms. I also recommend TWU for students with families (there is family housing available right on campus) and for International students (they really cater to them here with the International Student organization, and the fact that there are many students from outside the US).

    Tips for prospective students

    I recommend coming to visit, if you go to the website there are many, many opportunities for open house. At open house you get to tour the campus, check out the dorms and really get a feel for the campus and ask questions. Visit Denton and drive around to get familiar with it. Learn where Walmart, Target and other popular stores are. If you are car-less, learn the bus schedule and stops.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition does go up every year, but what college doesn't? Right now for Fall 2011, tuition and fees for undergrad resident students taking about 12 hours (full time) is $2,714.32. That is not including housing. You can check it out here: http://www.twu.edu/bursar/6107.asp

    Am enjoying being here

    I started out at the Denton, TX campus, and I loved it! I love the diversity of the student body, people from all walks of life and even from outside the US. The campus is small, and really gorgeous with flowers and trees and benches to sit on. Every building can be walked to easily. The transit system is free for college students. Also the nightlife is pretty nice, and there are little places to have fun at, like the Town Square, with little shops and thrift stores. The food places are amazing, and many places give student discounts (ask about it!). It has that small town feel, which I love, seeing as how I am from Houston. Also, Fort Worth and Dallas are only 45 minutes away.

    Am learning a lot

    I went to this school for the nursing program, which they are well known for. Its challenging, but there are so many resources to get help, like the SLRC for science classes and the Write Site for when you need help with your essays and the Math Lab which are full of graduate students to help you. The teachers welcome you coming to their office hours (my Chemistry professor helped me not fail :). I believe that when I graduate I will feel equipped and not feel like I missed out on something.

    Greek Life

    I have never been involved with Greek Life. So, I cannot adequately comment on the subject.

    Clubs and Activities

    As a veteran and new student, I am already receiving emails from other veterans and non-tradional students. This makes the environment warm and inviting. People want to help you meet your goals.

    Great for these types of students

    The university is great for female students, as it was once an all women's college. The university is one of the top, if not the top schools for Adapted Physical Education. The faculty to student ratio is very accommodating.

    Bang for the buck

    I believe TWU provides a top quality education for the cost of attendance.

    What to do for fun

    There are many activities and sporting events held on campus and the City of Denton is very active.

    Food and Dining

    I cannot speak of the food and dining yet, as I have not been on campus. But, I gather it is as acceptable as any other campus I have visited. Food is better when it is first prepared and the later you wait the less options you will have.

    Dorm Life

    I do not plan on living in a dorm as I am a non-traditional student. But, having lived in dorms in college and in barracks and onboard ships in the Marine Corps, patience is a must.

    Academic Rigor

    I have not started classes yet, but I expect since I am in a doctoral program that my classes will be challenging.

    Tips for prospective students

    I recommend communicating with as many people as possible. Communicate in a clear and concise manner. Tell the faculty and staff what you need.

    Texas Woman's University's application process was simple and straightforward. The faculty and staff have been very professional and accommodating. I am excited to be attend TWU!!

    Campus Safety

    It seems like a safe enough campus, I'd prefer some more lighting, but over all it's fine.

    Clubs and Activities

    The only activities they have are sororities which cost $80 a month

    Great for these types of students

    TWU will be great for students who just want a cheap and easy education without much of a social life.

    Bang for the buck

    TWU is pretty cheap, even for out of state students. If you receive a scholarship of $1000, they give you in state tuition.

    Food and Dining

    The food here is horrible. The choices are limited, and pricey.

    Dorm Life

    The rooms are decently sized, but are definitely not communities.

    Academic Rigor

    I haven't found this school to be challenging. If you do the homework, you will be fine.

    In three sentences

    This University has a pretty campus, but is not for everyone. It is smaller, and hard to get involved. It also has a vast gay population, which may turn people off.

    Ambitious, active students of all ages. Great school for occupational therapy and nursing.

    Tips for prospective students

    A friend who was just accepted at TWU recently told me that the people at the college will really push to get you to stay on campus, but as both of us said, why? If you live close by, don't let them pressure you into spending a whole bunch of extra money. Also, tour the campus WAY ahead of time so you can really get an idea of what it's like there!

    Bang for the buck

    You get lots of amenities with your stay at the college, like huge indoor and outdoor pools, a kitchen; a big, beautiful library; you name it. Plus it's a pretty well-recognised school, so having TWU on your resume someday could really pay off.

    Will enjoy being here

    The campus is gorgeous. I can't wait to explore it on my own. It's small, with lots of safety precautions taken, so I don't need to worry about my safety all the time, but has very rich history. Beautiful trees for the hot Texas summers, too!

    Will learn a lot

    Whenever I mention TWU, people tend to respond positively. Almost everyone seems to know about this college. It has a great reputation! And when I looked at the basic course plan for the occupational therapy program, it sounded really exiting. There are lots of internships planned right into the program, and many cool classes. There seems to be a great balance between hands-on and textbook work.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The library is beautiful and a great place to study. There is a garden that is so beautiful in bloom during the spring, a pond, and a small little park with huge trees.

    What to do for fun

    Cinemark is $3.50 for students on Thursdays in Denton. Movie tavern is a great place to dine and watch a movie as well. During spring semester there is a Jazz & Arts festival which is really fun and low cost and is walking distance from campus!

    Food and Dining

    Mainly food is found in only the student union. There is a buffet on the underground level, chick-fil-a, coffee shop, and garden room on the second floor. The garden room serves pizza, soups, sandwiches, etc.

    Dorm Life

    I loved the dorms and NET (neighbors educated together) and LLC (Living and Learning Communities) help you to know everyone on your floor and take a few classes together to become closer as floormates and friends.

    Academic Rigor

    Depends on you major. I was a Bio major and labs were only 1 credit hour, but required up to 4 hours a week (not including times you can come into lab for extra practice or work).

    Tips for prospective students

    Get a campus job to gain work experience, to network with faculty and staff, and put some money in you pocket. The Honor's Program is really good and Dr. Litton, Beth, and Janie are always willing to help and talk to interested students.

    In three sentences

    TWU is a beautiful campus with a homey atmosphere. I was very satisfied with my experience, and I definitely saved a lot of money attending here. They have a wonderful health science dept. (PT, OT, Nursing, Speech pathology, Kinesiology, Child Dev, etc.).

    Campus Safety

    twu is a really safe community. denton in general is safe, and few residents of deonton rarely lock their door. nothing dangerous really goes on around campus, but i always stay on the safe side. there's an on site police office with patrols on campus, along with various areas where you can go to so that you can alert the police if you are in danger.

    Great for these types of students

    it's great for artistic people like theater majors. it's also known for it's nursing and education program. it's cost affordable compared to other universities. great for nontraditional students. i see so many people who either are older than the normal age group or are mothers with childrn. they have a great program for mother's who need day care during their classes. students who are serious about their education. people who don't find sports and parties important. it is not a party school.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    before your first end of the semester exams they have a thing called mignight breakfast.. it starts at ten at night and is over at midnight. they give awy all kinds of cool prizes, have photo boothes, characature artists, and even massages! it's really fun and everyone comes away with something. for halloween they give away bags of candy, and for valentine's day they pass out roses and chocolates to everyone. the holiday celebrations usually happen in the underground. there's so much interesting things to do, and visit on campus. it's a lot of fun.

    Bang for the buck

    the money you pay to attend the school is worth it from your tuiion to the activities that they host. they make sure you get your moneys worth while having a fun time at the school.

    What to do for fun

    the school always has something going on from actuvities in the student union to various speakers visiting the school. they have all kinds of really cool, and unique things for the students that allow you to relax, while getting to meet new people. there's always something going on at least two or three times a month.

    Food and Dining

    the food is really tasy and healthy at the same time. the underground, which is the cafeteria, has a wide selection of food. they provide something for everyone, and tehy make sure that if you have a food allergry or are a vegetarian that you still have food available that still tastes good. they are very clean, and the workers there are really sweet people, and they are willing to help you with whatever you need.

    Dorm Life

    the people in the doors are really friendly. i have yet to hear about any drama between very many people living in them. they are well kept, clean, and very calm. they are a great place to relax after class or work. while it may not be your home you still feel comfortable there.

    Academic Rigor

    they do have some professors that are difficult, but they teach you so much from the actual subject to life tips. they make sure you have the best things to your advantage while making your education there affordable. you must attend you classes regularly in order to pass your tests, and you must read your text books. i have to find a professor i did not like. most professors will help you if you go to them. i like to sit in the front of my classes that way the professor knows my face. it's always a good thing to introduce yourself to them and get involved in the class discussions.

    Tips for prospective students

    make sure the school is within your budget. attend your classes because the professors are great. be sure to check your email a lot because the school holds a lot of free events for the students on holidays, and various other times throughout the year. study for your tests, and don't slack because while some classes may be challenging the things you take from them are life altering.

    In three sentences

    it has a wonderful program for the students, and they make sure that no matter what your problem is to help you deal with it. they have many oppertunities for the students to get involved no matter what it is. they truly care about your education, and about your well being.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very well light and one of the safest campus out there. There are emergency call booths all over campus, so if you do not feel safe, do not hesitate to hit the button on the booth and a cop will come and escort you back to your car or dorm.

    Greek Life

    There are 3 main Greek sororities and many other sororities on campus, such as a Latino sorority, and African American sorority, etc., which are all Greek. Being in a sorority is a great way to get involved on campus, meet people, and looks great on resumes. Plus it is a lot of fun!

    What to do for fun

    The Denton square is fun, great food, bars (if your of age), and an amazing ice cream place called Beth Maries. There is a studio movie grill type place on University that is fun, along with a movie theater in Lewisville that has College Night on Thursday.

    Food and Dining

    I learned at an orientation day that the university plan was the way to go, and I stuck with that my 4 years of under grad, and I recommend that. Also, anytime there is a midnight breakfast during exam week...go! It is so much fun, relaxing, and free food!

    Dorm Life

    It has it's pros and cons. I hated it until my very last roommate my first year. My last roommate and I got along great. I think the key to having a good experience with a roommate is setting boundaries and setting rules with one another.

    Academic Rigor

    It's college! There are project's, papers, tests...and its tough, but if you use time management and a planner/calender you will be fine. Just relax and make some time for your self as well as focusing on school work.

    Tips for prospective students

    The best advice I have is to become active in anything that interests you on campus! A few years ago the campus would be dead on weekends because everyone goes home on weekends, but there are still activities planned. It is a great way to meet people and get to know the city of Denton.

    In three sentences

    TWU has some of the best teachers I have ever experienced. Through my classes and the sorority I joined I met some of my best friends I have ever had at TWU. I received my undergrad degree here and am returning to take more prerequisites here before going off to graduate school, because I know TWU will prepare for my future.

    I am completing classes for admission in a master's program. I have all A's except for one B, yet I was not accepted in the program. I feel like I have wasted an entire year of my life. I would rather not have been accepted in the program and have instead pursued another program. Basically too many candidates have been admitted into the program for too few openings. This leads me to believe that the school is in it for the money and not for the benefit of the students.

There are emergency poles everywhere where incase you dont feel safe all you have to do is press the button and a cop will come out. You can also have a policemen walk you around if you dont feel safe.

    One thing that the campus lacks is a big greek life. Only two frats and a few sororities. But they make the best of it.

    A lot of different type of clubs so there is something for everyone. Almost every major has a club along with other clubs. There are many activities that goes on.

    If you take the time to meet people living in the dorms will be a great experience. You will meet really good friends in the dorms.There is always something going on so there is no excuse to be bored. The RA's will always be planning fun stuff and they usually give away free stuff at the events so be sure to not miss out.

    Campus Safety

    TWU has an on campus police station and designated posts where security can be there for you at any time of day. The policemen can be seen on campus at times and TWU practices fire drills to keep the entire school in check on such procedures.

    Great for these types of students

    TWU is known for it's tough nursing program. The nursing program i definitely not a joke. My friends that took to it were definitely in it for the long haul when they realized the seriousness of the program. However, seeing as the school is primarily known for nursing, students seeking this education should not be put off by its tough work. This is because so many people will be right along with you, willing to stay up all night and study right by your side.

    Bang for the buck

    It's definitely worth it. TWU offers a lot at a particularily low price. You will definitely get the experience of a college, and yo will in most cases get the good grades as well, simply because TWU offers tutoring for the core courses that trouble students the most. You get your money's worth for your education... what more can a student ask for?

    What to do for fun

    There are several off and on campus activities available to take part in, to have more of a social life definitely join up organizations, and Helping Hands is an especially good organization for those seeking community service hours.

    Food and Dining

    The food is okay, at first the buffet- style may seem like a dream but after a while of eating the same thing over and over, you will definitely want to try the dining upstairs and use your dining dollars for a change up on meals.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is very nice, in comparison to other dorms, the TWU campus has very roomy, and comfortable living spaces.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes at TWU definitely aim to achieve, the professors do not expect anything more than your absolute best. So aim high in these classes, doing the minimum eventually reflects in your grades.

    Sit closer to the front, and get close to the professors, especially in larger lecture classes.

    Campus Safety

    It is a small campus so you always feel safe walking back and forth. There could be a bit more lighting along the sidewalks to farther buildings like the science building, but overall, you definitely feel safe.

    Greek Life

    I don't really know much about Greek life as I am not a part of a sorority. I know that there are multiple sororities and one fraternity. My roommate and a few friends are in sororities and they love it! They say it is something that definitely helps form tight bonds with other people.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many options to choose from and, from my own experience, they are great. I am in the Athenian Honors Society (which I absolutely recommend people apply to), HOSA, Helping Hands (a volunteer organization that requires no membership - they have a variety of volunteer projects for the members), and I am also on the Quidditch team! There are so many more to choose from. You just have to find one that fits your preferences.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who are looking for a smaller school that is not too expensive. If you don't mind being in a small town, then this is the place for you! It was not my first choice, but I chose it after some consideration and I am glad I did. The nursing program is amazing as are many others in the health-related field.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    None really come to mind. It's really just your usual campus activity life.

    Bang for the buck

    TWU is a relatively cheap school when compared to other universities, but it doesn't feel that way. The school is pretty great and you always get more than enough when it comes to being on campus. It really is quite terrific and I don't regret choosing this school.

    What to do for fun

    There are a lot of organizations you can join for starters. There are also many events that the school puts on which often include games and prizes. If you want to find something off campus to do, it is no problem. Denton is a relatively small place so things are walking distance. You can also take the bus, which is free for students. My friends and I usually take the bus to Denton Square which is a little plaza that has many places to eat (Ramen Republic and Beth Marie's to name a few) and other things like a comic book store and a theater. I love going down there!

    Food and Dining

    There aren't too many options on campus to choose from, but the places that are there offer a wide variety of food. The dining hall in the student union can get crowded at time, though. Upstairs is a little quieter. They offer more restaurant-type foods there, such as grilled burgers, taco salad, and sushi. Yum!

    Dorm Life

    I joined a NET the first year which was like a little community on your floor. I was in the nursing NET so all of the people on my floor were nursing majors and we were signed up for a few of the same classes. By having that support system, you find it easier to study and find people that share a common interest. Though I am no longer in the NET, the friendships I formed will last a lifetime. I don't give a higher rating on here because there are a few flaws with the dorm establishment itself, but they shouldn't deter you from living in a dorm. Dorm life is part of the college experience and, although the walls may be thin and the printers not always loaded with ink, it will be a great experience.

    Academic Rigor

    I feel that with any college you attend there will be classes that are a bit harder than others. At TWU, there are so many wonderful professors that take the time to help you and motivate you to do well in your studies. If you try hard and do your best, you will succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep an open mind when it comes to attending college, even if it isn't TWU. I know that it is a nerve wracking time in your life, but you will come to find that this experience is one to cherish. This campus is truly amazing and it makes you feel safe, so go out there and explore. There are so many clubs and organizations offered that will make you feel like you have found your niche. Don't see one that catches your eye? It is so simple to start your own and find people with common interests.

    In three sentences

    TWU is an amazing school with a wonderful atmosphere. I grew fond of this school because of the small campus that feels like a home and all of the great professors that they have to offer. I never thought that I would feel comfortable away from home, but this school, along with the honors program, has made this possible.

    Campus Safety

    I've been to campus at 6am and there until after midnight. I have never had any concern for safety on campus. It's a decent size campus, but everything is compact and close - not overwhelmingly so, but close enough you don't feel like you are walking in the middle of no where late at night. Plus, campus security is an actual police station and they are always around!

    Greek Life

    They have it, I just know little about it.

    Clubs and Activities

    You can get involved, and challenge others to get involved.

    Great for these types of students

    Art, Dance, Health Sciences, Science, PreMed, History

    Bang for the buck

    The Nursing Program is phenomenal at TWU. I know that I will graduate and be seen as one of the best of the best in my field. Professors will challenge you, but they WILL teach you. I couldn't have chosen a better university to complete my degree.

    What to do for fun

    Campus always has great activities - Maya Angelou this last spring semester, Easter Egg Hunts, an awesome new rec center with a great climbing wall, beautiful pools. Then there are venders throughout the semester - Eyebrow threading, massages, candles, etc. These are just the on-campus activities. Just outside the metroplex, there are numerous nightlife options!

    Food and Dining

    Chic-fil-A on campus, great salad bar and many choices for the buffet style cafeteria. Plus, if you are in between classes, 2 of the larger buildings that classes are held in have small bistro style eating areas. Great coffee, bagels, pastries, sandwiches and salads! And most importantly, prices are not inflated!

    Academic Rigor

    Again, you will be challenged. D for degree and C for continue may prove to not be acceptable for a TWU education. You will be better because of it, and others will recognize your hard work and determination.

    Tips for prospective students

    If venturing into one of the Health Science Programs - Nursing, Dental Hygiene, etc - remember that it is competitive. Plan your classes accordingly. Pay special attention to Preference classes. Summer is a great time to take A&P 1 and 2!

    In three sentences

    A competitive school that will challenge you to be your best. TWU has amazing, knowledgeable professors, a variety of classes and interests with multiple scheduling options. You can leave TWU knowing that you are not going to be one of those adults that just tries to skate by on mediocracy; you will believe in you, as will others.

    Campus Safety

    The campus has their own police station for your own safety.

    What to do for fun

    There's a small pond that's in front of the gym that's full of turtles. You can bring bread out there and feed them and they'll swarm over and some will climb out of water to eat it. Beware, the squirrels are too friendly and will take bread out of your hands. The Student Union is a hang out area for the students and also TWU just got a pool.

    Food and Dining

    The food was excellent but make sure you go to the new gym they built, because you're definitely not going to go for the healthy option of eating.

    Dorm Life

    Join the Living Learning Community for dorm life. You get to live on the same floor as your major and can ask for help from anyone on the floor. The dorms are extremely small, so find something like a portable shelf that you can have sit above your bed so you have some extra places to place things. Buy stilts to stack your bed because you're going to want to store things under it and I would recommend to buying separation boxes or kits to put your clothes in for the drawers so you can stay more organized and not get them mixed with your roommates. The elevators are slow and certain ones only go to different levels so make sure you read the signs in front of the elevators. You don't want to end up like me who roomed on the top floor in orientation and couldn't get to the room and got frustrated and ended up climbing the stairs.

    Academic Rigor

    I honestly cannot tell you about their academics because I haven't taken any of the classes. I have heard that the chemistry classes are impossible there and it's recommended to take them at a community college.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you visit for orientation, bring something to entertain you. There is no cable or television, and the wii-fi is poor in the building. Bring a book or a laptop so you can read or play games. The toilets don't have much sucking power, I hope you don't mind flushing a few times and in the future, you might want to clean your toilet often if you are living in the dorm. The campus is small and easy to maneuver around, you definitely do not need a car but a bike might be helpful if you want to ride over to the UNT campus. TWU has convenience stores for you to buy what you need.

    In three sentences

    I love the feel of the campus at Texas Woman's University. The architecture is lovely and it brings you back in time to the days of a school where only the elite would study. The dorms are small and slightly crowded and the elevators are terrifying and confusing at first but the options they have for living there are nice. When you first step on campus for orientation, you are immediately greeted with smiles and the energy and activities they have planned for you are fun.

    Campus Safety

    I believe the campus safety is pretty good. There are emergency poles all around the campus, and security that come around at night for those late classes that students have. They are also good on alerting any threat to the campus whether health related or safety related.

    Greek Life

    There are only a few Greeks on campus, and unfortunately they do not have their own houses. Greek life is not a very important factor on campus, but you will hear about them and the activities that you can participate in.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs and activities on campus. There is something going on just about everyday, and something for every type of student. They also work meetings around classes and other schedules.

    Great for these types of students

    There are leadership programs, math clubs, history clubs, and Greek life. Also, there is a Net program that puts you in a dorm with people who have the same major and take the same classes as you for better study groups and advisors.

    Bang for the buck

    Texas Woman's has a great gym that is free for students. Students get to ride the city bus for free with ID, and the C-store is good for late night snacks, bathroom necessities, and supplies with dining dollars!

    What to do for fun

    Although Denton is a small town, there is a bowling alley that has discount days for students, there is downtown Denton with thrift stores and other attractions, and there is also a cheap movie theatre with a discount for students also, and any activities on campus or at North Texas down the street.

    Food and Dining

    Food and dining are not the best. Chick fil A will be your best friend, until you get tired of it. The cafeteria food could be better, along with the hours that it is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is different than other schools I have visited, but they are better in a sense of making friends and joining study groups with the other students on your floor.

    Academic Rigor

    The school is a challenging one, but some classes and teachers are easier than others. Good study habits are definitely recommended and stay focused to succeed in classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    If a student would like a small ratio for teacher to student, this is a great school. There are also many activities to be involved in and the campus is safe. The school is mainly women, and can be a little over-whelming at times, but they should be alright.

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's University is a great school for nursing and kinesiology, and even other majors such as business or music. I would rate the school an 8 out of 10. The school is fairly smaller than others, but big enough to enjoy yourself.

    You can walk down university drive and go shopping or to the movies. There are many activities around the campus. Be involved!

    Food isn't the greatest for orientation or pioneer camp but the offers available around campus are pretty good.

    Dorm Life

    Awesome roommates, had some problems with a triple room so had to break some rules, but overall the dorm experience is all on the student that is living there.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to get a tour before entering the school or you'll get lost easily!

    It is extremely pretty. Getting it to classes is a workout, which is a bonus. Downside that you can only use meal plan in one place and everything else takes money.

    What my friends and I love to do for fun is to head over to the gym and play some basketball and chill. Sometimes on hot summer nights I love to hang out by the fountain and read my books.

    Food and Dining

    The adjustment from my parents home cooking to school food was hard, but gradually you will learn to love new things. The cookies at the Student Union are the best!

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life, is an experience everyone should go through. Be prepared to miss your folks even if you think you will not, believe me you will a lot!

    Academic Rigor

    As far as academic rigor, be prepared for some ups and downs. Some classes will have an easy structure but some unexpected class will demand a lot from you.

    Tips for prospective students

    My advice for prospective students is to form friends quickly and be out going, so you can make good cohesive study groups. Social relations is an important concept students must grasp prior to classes. Also most importantly do not be shy to be your self, if you have a question in class ask it and ask it loud and proud. Never act like someone else so you can fit when we all are born to stand out.

    In three sentences

    I love the my T-dub family, the love and positive energy I am surrounded by makes me feel confident and proud of my university. The academic life and the social life are valued at an equal, so as a student I have an equal balance of both world. My favorite place at the TWU campus is the library because as you study in a quite and safe place you are taken back by the beautiful history of TWU, America, and current events that as student we do not have time to notice.

    The midnight breakfast is an interesting tradition... can't say I'm a fan of staying up late for food but the prizes make it worth it.

    Campus Safety

    Our campus is fairly safe. We have few reported serious crimes, and likely few serious crimes. We get some burglary and theft, but little else. We have our own police department and they will escort you if you don't feel safe.

    Greek Life

    There are several sororities on campus. I don't know much about them because I was never interested in Greek life.

    Clubs and Activities

    It is difficult to limit yourself in your activities because there are so many great ones! We have service related clubs, academic related clubs, and interest related clubs. If we don't have it, you can start one, with a little work.

    Great for these types of students

    There is a large non-traditional student population. Many students are married and/or have kids. Ages range from late teens to late sixties. Most students commute.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    On Family Day, they hold armadillo races.

    Bang for the buck

    The price is fairly low for a University. You still get smaller classes, but some are not offered every semester. The fitness and rec center is new and very nice and free for students.

    What to do for fun

    Around campus, there are several good restaurants, even within walking distance. We have a local theatre and many little shops on the Square (downtown). Recycled books is a great used book store in an old opera house. Denton Square Donuts, Beth Marie's Ice Cream, and Jupiter House are great places to meet up with friends. Zera's Coffee is also a great place to study. Many study groups meet there.

    Food and Dining

    There are few dining options on the weekends. Most people go home, so there is such a small demand that most places close. The main dining area (the Underground) does not always have fruits available. On average, their food is mediocre. The other dining services have slightly higher quality food, but lines develop quickly when classes get out.

    Dorm Life

    Periodically, the Resident Hall Association hosts a game night or movie night. You are supposed to have floor meetings or parties regularly, but due to schedules, they rarely have a high turnout. The elevators in the towers (21 and 24 stories) often get bogged down during peak hours and sometimes you must take the stairs.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic standards vary from professor to professor, but overall, there are semi-high expectations. Major specific classes have higher standards for achievement, especially education and science fields.

    Tips for prospective students

    Pack rain boots or other waterproof shoes. Go to class and take notes. Talk to those who have previously had your professor to get tips on how to best study for his or her quizzes and tests. Take advantage of the Write Site, Math Lab, and other academic resources.

    In three sentences

    Most TWU classes, especially ones specific to your major, are small (25-30 students). This helps you get to know those in your field and not get lost in a sea of people. Because there are an abundance of student organizations from which to choose, it is easy to get involved and meet people.

    From my dorm room, I often see the TWU police patrolling the parking lot. There is also security stands on campus if you are feeling uncomfortable. The campus is well lit at night.

    Clubs and Activities

    The clubs are friendly and host free events. At these events they provide free food, and allow people to meet others.

    Great for these types of students

    There is the Pioneer Woman, whose model was a man because women were not allowed to be models when it was sculpted.

    Bang for the buck

    TWU is a very affordable school and comes with a great education. I know it has one of the top nursing programs, and it has a lot of other great programs. An option available is Study Abroad, with lots of activities to participate while there.

    What to do for fun

    TWU does not have a lot of parties on campus. If you want to party, you need to go to UNT. In downtown Denton there is the Square, which has a lot of neat little shops and restaurants.

    Food and Dining

    There is the Underground, which is a dining hall for students. They have good food, and if you don't like what they are serving there is a line with hot dogs, hamburgers, grilled cheese, etc.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are well insulated and the view is great. My only complaint is that the walls are thin, and I can hear my neighbors talking.

    Academic Rigor

    I was challenged to succeed in my classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Keep your GPA up and apply for all the scholarships possible.

    I'm currently a Freshmen at TWU they are a boring. It's a good academic based school. But they don't have a lot of school wide activities, so it becomes boring. So, if your more into academics this school would be best.

    Campus Safety

    Our campus is very safe. Not much goes on, but if it does we have emergency polls around campus as well as police officers who are around often.

    Greek Life

    There are a lot of sororities on campus, black sororities included. We currently have 2 fraternities, but our students are able to join sororities/fraternities at our neighboring school, UNT.

    Clubs and Activities

    I think this is one of the best parts of this school. There are A LOT of clubs/organizations to join. We have volunteer organizations and a organization that gets to plan a lot of the school's activities/events.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a ampi theatre that has never been used. I don't know why we have it lol. We also have a creepy headless statue in front of one of our buildings that is great to go explore late at night.

    What to do for fun

    We have concerts from known artists on Valentines and other random days.The best thing is to probably beome really good friends with someone at our neighboring school, UNT, because they're a party school. We do have organizations who volunteer often. Also, there's a country dance club that's pretty popular.

    Food and Dining

    The food choice is not the biggest it could be, but it is okay. We have Chick-Fil-A! We also have amazing coffee and smoothies. Hours should be extended for most places. Also, it's not great for those who can't afford the best dining plan because the smaller plans require you to eat in the cafeteria which is not so great.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are not the greatest. There are way too many people now so waiting for elevators can take a while. Elevators also break semi often and if you're lucky you'll live in a floor full of loud and inconsiderate students, yay.

    Academic Rigor

    Most courses get harder as you get more into your major, like most schools, but some basic classes can be really hard if you don't have the best professor.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take a tour of the campus to see if you like the way it feels. Also get a look at the current students and weather.

    Txas Woman's University was the best choice school for me. even in classes that lecture over 150 students you still get that one-on-one attention that you need sometimes.

    Our campus is pretty safe. At night, for our safety, they have a lot of lights on and multiple cops patrolling.

    Bang for the buck

    Get the University Meal plan it's a little more expensive but very worth it. There is no way that you will use all your dining dollars in one semester so you don't have to worry about running out! Also this plan gives you more dining options around the campus.

    Food and Dining

    It's not the best here. The only really good thing is the Chick-Fil-a and the Starbucks. In the future in know they are talking about remodeling the food dining so I hope that brings more options!

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is pretty standard. The rooms are not to small and they just installed wifi. The only down side is that there isn't a microwave on each floor. During the semester they tend to break down a lot from frequent use.

    Academic Rigor

    In the music department the Academics are pretty strong. It's a lot of work but you learn so much and build good relationships with your teachers. This will help in the future when you need reference letters.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay on top of your grades! If you need help just ask questions. A lot of upperclassmen are going to push for you to get involve your freshmen year. Just make sure you go at your own speed and manage your own work load.

    If someone decides to go to this school, they should definitely join as many extracurricular activities as you can. Be involved on campus and you will have much more fun and meet a lot of different people. This is a quiet campus, but we do have a few activities on campus. This a very diverse campus and anyone who comes here will enjoy it. The plus to this school, is there is also University of North Texas right down the street and you can also attend there activities.

    Overall I love TWU, wouldn't have want to go anywhere else. It's close to the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex, if you want to head to the city, you can.

    Denton is small, you can attend school events or head to the university of north Texas which is next door.

    Food and the student union could improve.

    Dorm life at this school is one of the many things that I love about this school. You feel so safe and secure in the dorms and you get to choose where you want to live. There are three dorms that you can choose to live in and they are all secure. There is an Resident Advisor at the front desk at these dorms at all times that makes sure that the other residents are safe.

    Campus Safety

    The campus police are seen driving and sometimes walking around campus. They are also available for help late at night when walking to and from one's car. Having them in sight has helped make me feel more at ease and safe on campus.

    What to do for fun

    Chill out at, Zera's, a nearby coffee shop. Shop at local stores. Enjoy some sun and scenery at TWU's campus grounds. Attend occasional music concerts and festivals.

    Food and Dining

    I cook my own meals, but hear that most people don't like the cafeteria food. There is a Chick-fil-A and a few other restaurants for students to eat in place of the cafeteria.

    Dorm Life

    I live off campus, but hear that the dorm life is not too bad.

    Academic Rigor

    This depends on the teacher. Some teachers hardly assign any homework aside from quizzes and tests, and others assign lots of busy work.

    Tips for prospective students

    Communters, get here early for parking! There seems to be limited space and it can be frustrating to arrive a few minutes before class and have to search for 20 minutes before finding a parking space. Transfer students, don't rely on the advisors for everything. Be willing to do some of your own research as well. Some of us other transfer students have struggled at times with feeling like we are almost lost in the cracks and important details get missed out on.

    In three sentences

    TWU is has a somewhat relaxed campus feel with the smaller student body when compared to larger universities such as UNT. For the most part, the faculty are willing to help the students succeed and advance in their studies. I feel like TWU has a fairly large representation of all kinds of minorities, which is good for one to learn to interact with others different from his or herself.

    Our Department of Public Safety is awesome. They are always being sure that we are protected on campus and off campus.

    Greek Life

    There are a variety of Greek organizations on campus. We have an IFC Fraternity, MGC Sororities, NPHC Sororities and Fraternities and NPC Sororities.

    What to do for fun

    There are a ton of organizations on TWU campus. There is always something to do. Your college experience will be what you make it. My advice is to take advantage of it.

    Food and Dining

    I feel that the dining choices are adequate. I hope that one day that food and dining will expand as well just to provide more options.

    Dorm Life

    I feel that TWU should enlarge the dorms by building new buildings. I say this because every year we have a healthy amount of students that come each year to stay on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Texas Woman's University feels that academics are very important and they take it seriously.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Stay on top of all assignments given out. Procrastination will make life more stressful. 2. Make sure you become involved on campus. There are many clubs and organizations offered at TWU. 3. Graduate!

    Texas Woman's University is a dream come true for me. TWU met all of my educational requirements; small classes, reasonable financially, and dedicated professors. The professors and staff have been the most helpful that I have ever encountered in academia. The professors still care about teaching and the staff is committed to your success as a student.

    Campus Safety

    It is good! But one thing I have heard from my friends experiences and personally mine too, the police officers aren't very helpful. My friend was once walking late at night and saw a police officer. She asked him if he could could escort her to her car because she was scared. But the police officer said, Oh sorry, I am an on-campus police officer, not an off-campus.

    What to do for fun

    It is a really pretty campus! Its amazingly beautiful! My friends and I usually take lots of pics!

    Food and Dining

    I do not like the food given at TWU. I usually bring extra food from home. I can't complain, but I really think TWU should really think about the students, if they have allergies or not, if they can eat that meat or not, and so on.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is good! But only in the aspect of having your own schedule. When I say having your own schedule I mean that your parents are not telling you to study, their not making decisions for you. You are making them your self! One very important note: Always be around GOOD company!

    Academic Rigor

    TWU has honeslty helped me make what I thought was impossible to possible. And no one could ever understand that from my perspective.

    Tips for prospective students

    One thing I highly encourage is to go to your professors! Talk to them! They love that! And that helps you a lot! That shows the professor you care about your grades! Something to consider, you don't have to be smart to make good grades, you have to be hard working! Be hard working and always smile! Give yourself breaks from studying and relax!

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's University has an amazing environment. The professors at this university are willing to help you if you are a hard worker. It has helped me build myself and really understand who I am.

    Campus Safety

    There are on campus police every where you look so safety is no issue. if you walk late at night, just know that you will be safe and get back to where you need to be.

    Greek Life

    I would not be able to tell you anything about this.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many around campus and they update you on them as you walk around, or even if you ask someone in student life.

    Great for these types of students

    They have a Kinesiology, Nursing, and Dental Hygiene degrees that are outstanding for students in that prospective area.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Not too sure about this one.

    Bang for the buck

    the first thing that comes to mind is book rentals. they also have a section for savings around campus too.

    What to do for fun

    They have multiple activities on campus a majority of the time so the fun never ends. they have seasonal festivals, heath fairs and many more things. if you want to do something fun, all you have to do is look in the announcements at the school and you will find something of interest.

    Food and Dining

    I have eaten on campus and all of the food is pretty good. I do not eat in the underground because that is not the type of food i like but they do have chic-fil-a, Mexican food and a sandwich making area, ect. so you have a good variety.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in the dorms but i have had all night study secession with a few class mates here and there. the times that i was in the dorms were pretty fun times. they are a new home if you live far. I am not able to give the full experience so i will let that be known.

    Academic Rigor

    The only academic rigor that you can get caught up with is class work and assignments. always stay on your A game and you will have no problem with this. Other than that, it is an easy flowing life.

    Tips for prospective students

    Use everything to your advantage. If you need help, then you should get it. also, ask lots of questions anytime you need to.

    In three sentences

    I would have to rate Texas Woman's University at a 7 out of 10. I gave them a 7 because they have been awesome in helping me through school and they are very helpful in general. They have been wonderful so far and i know it will proceed that way.

    Campus Safety

    It is the second safest school in the nation. It's quiet and peaceful. We had an occasion maybe once, but other than that it is nice.

    Greek Life

    Sorority life is amazing!

    Clubs and Activities

    Great clubs and extracurricular activities to choose from!.

    Bang for the buck

    I personally feel that the school could be a little better. If it weren't so crowded and they applied the budget where needed a little bit more then the school will be better.

    What to do for fun

    I personally do not do anything on campus for fun. Denton is quiet. Usually some students from our school go to the University of North Texas in Denton to have fun. Some go outside of Denton for fun. Depends on who you are. There are indoor and outdoor pools around so it's pretty nice.

    Food and Dining

    With meal plans you will survive and have fulfilling meals at the buffet. Their food is enjoyable and you have the ability to get Chick-fil-A.

    Dorm Life

    If the rooms were meant for the amount of people they put in them then the living would be comfortable. The campus apartments are okay depending on which ones you get.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on the teacher, subject, and how savvy you are on the subjects you study (or academics generally) depends on the difficulty. You will have challenging classes but do not let the teacher psych-you-out because of your classification.

    Tips for prospective students

    When you plan to attend college, know for sure what you want to do before you attend college. If you need to go to a four-year school, take your basics in community college or test out of them before you graduate. Stay on top of your things at this school and keep on track with dates.

    In three sentences

    I love Texas Woman's University. However, I wish that they would either expand their space or minimize the amount of students they allow into their university. Classes get crowded too fast and it makes it hard to register.

    It was difficult at first. Leaving home was the hardest thing I ever had to do. Nonetheless, my roommate was understandable and everything went smoothly and we became best friends.

    Academic Rigor

    Academic standard is at the high for those applying to work in the medical field. Twu is highly known to be more in the medical field and other majors/minors are also approachable.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make yourself feel extra special when surrounded by your professors and friends. Don't feel shy but welcome opportunity at each end.

    In three sentences

    TWU is a wonderful campus filled with amazing people. Each person you pass is willing to smile and help you in any way. Overall, academic standard is one of the best.

    What to do for fun

    The rec center is where I am at most of the time, they have a basketball court, full weight room, a rock wall, golf course (not in rec) and an outdoor pool, and a sand volleyball court. And when the night comes you can always go to Fry Street, or find a party or kick back, whatever your into. I've known some people who get a little something going on in the dorms, but you have to be careful with that because you can get noise complaints and get busted.

    Food and Dining

    If you go here, take this advice, get the University Meal Plan. If you get one of the ones with the meals and only some dining dollars you will regret it. You can only use those meals at the Underground and the majority of the time, that food sucks. When you get the University Meal Plan you get 1500 dollars that you can spend on anything at the university so its much more worth it.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are kind of strict with everything. You have to check guests in and they can only be checked in so much in a week, and you only have so many hours in a week you can bring guests in, even if they go to school here but just don't live on campus. And depending on your RA your floor can get kind of boring. A lot of them don't like anything loud going on.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes here aren't to hard. If you go to class and pay attention, then you will be alright in most cases. Just go to class, study for the test, and you can get through the classes here easy.

    Tips for prospective students

    This is a good school to come to. It's not expensive and it's a good learning environment. You can still have fun though because this is a college town. And if you're a guy, just because it's a women's university don't shy away from it. I am a male currently attending here and it's not bad at all.

    In three sentences

    This is a very good medical school. Professor's are very good teachers, and actually try to help you out in most cases where there isn't 200 kids in a class. And in all it's just a good college in a good town. I recommend it.

    What to do for fun

    It's limited. You can go to the square. Denton's downtown is small but comfy. You can always got to UNT's events without a problem. TWU does not have parties, so people migrate to North Texas. Our mall, Golden Triangle, is a small thing that we have come to accept. It could be better, but it also could be worse. You can go to the movies, bowling, out to eat with friends, I mean you won't die of boredom if you look in the right places.

    Food and Dining

    The dining experience is mediocre. The Underground is far from a five star restaurant, but we as students take what we can get. However, I will have to be honest and say that after eating there once, I doubt you will try and go back a second time. That's what I tell incoming students to get the University Plan that consists of all dining dollars that you can use anywhere around the campus instead of having meal plans which will force you downstairs to the Underground. The Garden Room is basically like A La Carte. It has a variety. The only fast food place we have is Chik-Fil-A which your dining dollars can also be used at.

    Dorm Life

    There are three halls. Jones, Stark, and Guinn. Jones has a community bathroom which tends to make it peoples last choice. Jones is also further away from the towers (Guinn and Stark) which also houses the C Store. But Jones is not bad, I just wouldn't leave there. Guinn is a co-ed dorm, meaning both guys and girls stay there. This tends to be people's first choice, for the visiting hours are less stringent than that of Stark. It has 24 floors, and Stark has 21, if I am not mistaken. Stark is an all girls dorm, and the visiting hours are til 1AM on weekdays, and 24 hours on the weekends, starting Friday.

    Academic Rigor

    Academically, TWU excels. With its many facilities like the Math Lab, SLRC, or the Write Site, it gives you many opportunities to try and help yourself get toward that 4.0. Being that there is not much around Denton, there are not a lot of distractions as well. The professors here are great at helping students and replying back in a timely manner. When it comes to TWU, academics is their first priority.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are coming looking for the 'college life', TWU is not for you. Try UNT. There activities are limited, being that most of the students going here are women. I would also say make sure your priorities are in place. You think you have so much time, but in reality you need to spend it on studying. All in all, TWU is a great starting place to get focused if you are considering to transfer.

    In three sentences

    TWU is a great place for education, especially those pursuing degrees in nursing, kinesiology, and dance. The classes are smaller and personal, and the communication with your various teachers is more than accessible. TWU offers many facilities that can only improve your knowledge.

    There are not as many food choices at this campus, but the food it does provide is satisfactory. Some items taste don't taste good while others are delicious. I do not have a meal plan and I do not eat in the cafeteria.

    I do not live in the dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    Because this campus is so highly rated for success, the school has challenging classes. Not every class is the same, but if you are serious about getting in your chosen career field then it is important to focus on your studies.

    Tips for prospective students

    It is important to follow the syllabus and turn in assignments on time. Attend all classes even if they're not mandatory. This campus has a multitude of resources that students pay for in their tuition to help them progress through the years. There are Living Learning Communities on campus to help new students prosper and get to know the campus with other new students so no one is alone.

    Food and Dining

    There are two meal plans, one is dining dollars and the other is a meal plan with some dining dollars, and both plans are different. Dining dollars are used for your food, snacks, and anything else you want just because it is money, and the meal plan with dining dollars is used for the cafeteria and there is not much dining dollars that comes with it to use for the fast food they have so you have to use it wisely.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is very fun and cool to experience because you meet your neighbors and have meetings to get to know each other a bit more. Your roommate might end up being your best friend and a good study buddy. The only disadvantage is that if you want a friend to roommate with you, you have to request them ahead of time because there is not much room and opportunities.

    Academic Rigor

    At TWU you have to be responsible because if you don't then you get behind in classes. It is tough to try to catch up depending on what kind of classes you have and how much credit hours it is counted for because in a three hour class you may miss a lot of information. Putting yourself up for success is the best way to get through most of your work.

    In three sentences

    I rate Texas Woman's University as a good school just for the fact that the campus is a little small. It is a school were more girls attend and less guys, but they want to change it to both girls and guys. Most of everybody knows someone because of the campus being small and friendly.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for students serious about the medical field. It is also good for students who are looking for an affordable school that offers top education.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is fairly affordable and is one of the less expensive schools in the North Texas area. The education is absolutely great, and the school is well known for its nursing program. It partners with Collin College in order to make transferring a little easier on prospective students.

    What to do for fun

    There is fairly new gym built on campus that has an indoor walking track. The gym has classes everyday from Yoga to self defense classes. The school also has an indoor and outdoor swimming pool as well as a rock climbing wall. The school is within walking distance to UNT and is fairly close to the Denton Square where there are many activities to participate in there.

    Food and Dining

    The food in the student union is fairly good. They have Chik-Fil-A and a Starbucks. There is a cafeteria with different kinds of foods. The underground also provides meals, but I prefer to eat on the top floor of the student union. There is a lot of variety from salads to tacos to pizzas and more.

    Dorm Life

    There are many dorm opportunities at this school. They have the two large buildings that overlook Denton. There are apartments all around the area.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors expect you to do your part in your education. They will not hold your hand all the way till graduation. Attending class and being prepared for quizzes can be the difference in a letter grade.

    Tips for prospective students

    Prospective students should prepare for each lecture by reading ahead in their notes because the professors here want the class to engage in discussion. Attendance is important to each class. Some professors teach material that is outside of a book. There is always new information to be shared and it is the professor's job to teach something more than a book can teach a student. The school tries its best to have fun activities and it is best to be involved in the fun in order to enjoy the college experience.

    In three sentences

    The school has a small classroom setting, so students have a stronger relationship with the professor. The students are serious about their future and their work, so there are a lot of hard workers at this school. The professors try their best to get their students to understand the concepts in class by making themselves available outside classroom times.

    Campus Safety

    The police office is open 24/7, which is great. They can escort you back to your dorm or apartment complex.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs on campus and getting involved is easy. There are many opportunities in becoming a great student, both academically and as a volunteer.

    Great for these types of students

    Those who are entering college as a freshman straight out of high school, it's a small campus and the classroom size is less that 100.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The water fountain is the best place to relax and enjoy a bit of sun.

    What to do for fun

    Downtown denton is great to visit for an ice cream or just a walk about town. There are many activities to do if you look around town.

    Food and Dining

    The food isn't too bad, just wished they had more options available.

    Dorm Life

    I met my best friend living in the dorm. It's a great experience when first starting college away from home.

    Academic Rigor

    The grades are posted accordingly and the professors are approachable.

    Tips for prospective students

    Enjoy the small campus because other campuses are huge. The longest walk to a building is between 5 to 7 minutes.

    In three sentences

    Overall, the university is a good small place to receive an education. Some of the class offerings are once a year which is a bummer to those of us who plan on graduating in the spring. Every one on campus is friendly and buildings are easily found.

    Food and Dining

    Food here is average as well, nothing spectacular. The biggest complaint that I have is that during peak lunch time, between twelve-thirty and one o'clock, every eatery is swamped with students. If you have an eleven o'clock class that releases late, you're basically stuck grabbing your lunch on the way to your next class or waiting for awhile.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is average. In my opinion, the more you put into it, the more likely you are to get something out of it. My objective was to attend school and graduate as quickly as possible, so I chose not to get involved.

    Academic Rigor

    The online classes through TWU require very little brain power; they're more time consuming than anything else. The science classes I have taken, however, require much more focus and dedication to learning the material thoroughly on one's own time.

    Academic Rigor

    In the academic aspect, apart from a few professors, the student does receive what they pay for. Academics is a main priority for professors at this campus and they sincerely go out of their way to make sure you comprehend what is being taught in their lectures.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get familiar with the campus so you can make it to class on time on the first day of class. Get to know your professors so they know you on somewhat of a personal level. Take advantage of what you pay for that's included in your tuition rate.

    Great for these types of students

    Texas Woman's University is known for their Nursing program. The classes you take can be quite difficult but as long as you try, work hard, and study you will do great!

    What to do for fun

    For fun you could go to the gym or just hang out with friends. The university also creates different events throughout the year that you could possibly attend, such as sport games, movie nights, fairs, or other stuff. If you join organizations, they too come up with many fun things to do.

    Food and Dining

    The food is not all fancy either, but you need to eat in order to survive. Some of the stuff you will like and others you just might not. Again, it all depends on your food preferences. There are also a couple of places within the university for you to decide what you want to eat that day.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are not the best, or as modern, like others. Some are a bit smaller than others and you only have one restroom to share with your roommate. However, they are comfortable enough to help you survive your college years. It really all depends on which building you decide to stay in because they are not all the same.

    Academic Rigor

    Texas Woman's University has really good teachers on campus. They are there to help you when necessary and many times are available through email and office hours. Some classes are going to be harder than others, but the professors are always there to help. There are also many resources made available by the university and tutors that can facilitate your learning while attending TWU.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would advice future students to get involved in school. The university is filled with many organizations that could be of great benefit to many individuals. I would also advice them to study, study, study! College isn't all that easy, so use the resources that TWU offers.

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's University has a small campus compared to other universities and, for that reason, it is very relaxing and makes you feel very comfortable.

    Work with an advisor to make sure that you fulfill the requirements for specific programs that interest you. Many of their programs have deadlines that you may have to fulfill in a certain order before you can move on to another.

    Transferring from a community college, I would say they have a wide variety of programs, degrees, and aid.

    Food and Dining at TWU is average. There is not much of a selection.

    Dorm Life

    Dorms are small and Compacted. But living in the dorms is convinient since everything is so close and in walking distance. I've heard a lot of students not liking their roommate here. My experience living in the dorm was good because i had a great RA.

    Academic Rigor

    Twu's classes are rigor some., especially the science classes. However, if you study and do all your work, you will succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are wanting to go here, keep in mind that you won't get the generic college experience here. Most students are here mainly to get their degree and they're future started. Also, the the ratio to male to female is 1 to 10 so also keep that in mind.

    Texas Woman's University is not quite the school to go to if you are looking for the cliche freshman college experience. However, you are coming here just for education I'd say its the right school for you. TWU's professors and staff are caring and really want you to succeed.

    Texas Woman's University is great for students who like a smaller school vibe. It isn't a school to go to if having a football team and a huge greek life is important to you. However, the teachers care and the learning experience is great in a smaller class room.

    Clubs and Activities

    Make sure to check out the Pioneer Soccer Club.

    What to do for fun

    Here at Texas Woman's University they have activities on and off-campus. On campus they have things such as 5k races, sports games, movie nights, speakers, free food for a curtain cause or a holiday. They also have information sessions that involve health, jobs and housing. For off-campus events CAB (Campus Activity Board) take field trips. They have gone to places such as the aquarium.

    Food and Dining

    There is Chick-fil-a on campus and other wide varieties to choose from. They have what is called the Under Ground which is like a buffet for students. Some people say that it's good and others say it's bad, but in my opinion I like eating there. I guess it depends what you eat.

    Dorm Life

    My friends that are living on campus say that they dislike living in the dorms.

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's University is a campus that is focused on your education. They are also very helpful and lead you into the right way to reach your goal. The school advisers are very helpful and are open for any questions that you may have.

    Campus Safety

    The campus has taken an active stand to make the premise more safe for students and faculty. They set up emergency poles that allow people to call in case of trouble, set an alarm off, and notify the campus police of exact location of the individual. It is nice for night classes especially if you are walking out to your car in the dark. They are distanced throughout campus to help students feel safe.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many things offered through TWU. Each experience is unique and it depends on which club or activity you attend. Some typically at the beginning of the year are overcrowded yet as class loads build up people tend to pick and choose which ones they attend and events can be more fun. When they are not overcrowded it seems to be easier to talk and get to know people.

    Great for these types of students

    It is great for all types of students. The campus is very diverse and has many opprotunities for students.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    When sororities are recruiting for students to join they have a dance in the student union on campus. They dance to music and hold a celebration promoting each of the different sororities. It is a fun tradition even if you are just there to watch.

    Bang for the buck

    TWU really has a great tuition price. Most universities are very expensive but TWU is a more affordable university. Students get a good quality education for the price that they pay and if they take the time to invest in their education when it is all said and done they will see the benefits of it.

    What to do for fun

    Most fun things to do at TWU are events held by the campus itself. They are constantly posting flyers and having things for students on the campus. These are not only fun for the students but for their families or children as well. Some have bounce houses, face painting, others do a parade or concert. Also there are sporting events through both TWU sports teams and the UNT football games. Then there is a bowling alley that has dollar night and can be fun to get out and do something different.

    Food and Dining

    Food choices are limited but what they have is good. Basic things like chick-fli-a, sandwiches, pizza, salads, ect are offered for students on the campus. The city square is less than two miles from the campus and also has a wide variety of options for those who get tired of eating on campus or want something new.

    Dorm Life

    I have never lived in the dorms on campus but I have visited them. They are nice and kept up with. There is adequate space and it seems to be a fun and inviting environment. Plus there are always events on campus and students living in the dorms are right there to join in on the fun.

    Academic Rigor

    Teachers hold high expectations and actually teach their students the information necessary for them to succeed. Every teacher has a different teaching style just as students learn differently. Take an active role in learning and seek help from teachers if there is confusion. Most teachers are not unreasonable and want to see their students succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    Ask alot of questions and ask early. If there is anything you do not know ask someone. If they do not know the answer they will direct you to someone who does. The sooner you get acclimated and figure things out the less stress and easier the semesters will go.

    In three sentences

    Overall it is a great university. The campus is diverse to fit a wide variety of needs. Also the quality of education is high and challenges students to learn and take active part in their learning.

    I do not live in the dorms, I commute on a daily basis. I have seen the two main dorm buildings though and they look really cool. The two tallest buildings at the entrance of the campus are the newer dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    I am in the ESL Education program, so far it has been a lot of work. However, the professors are all willing to help out so the assignments never seem as bad as they really are.

    Texas Woman's University is a great school to attend. All of the teacher's I have had so far really put in the effort to see their students succeed. The only problem is between tuition and commuting an hour a day, it gets a a little expensive and parking is not the greatests.

    Tips for prospective students

    For prospective students, I would recommend to stay communicated with the school while you're applying. Once you've started classes, keep that communication going and stay on top of things. Ask questions, check your email, do what you need to do!

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's University is a fun school with great faculty and staff. The professors are so helpful, always willing to answer questions. The classes are pretty small in size compared to other colleges, so there is more time for one-on-one with the professor. I have learned so much at Texas Woman's University; I love it here!

    Food and Dining

    There's the garden room and the underground. The garden room has several Chick-fila, pizza, mexican food, burgers, convenience food. The underground is the school cafeteria and is fairly decent, serving as a buffet when you eat in and also has take out boxes.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are fine- they come with a small fridge. There are always activities going on to help you met new people and make new friends. In the basement are washers and dryers so it's convenient.

    Academic Rigor

    Depends on the professor and course- some classes are more rigorous than others. Reading course material and staying on top of syllabuses helps.

    I feel safe on the campus even being a women and walking at night about a mile away. Plus they have call boxes as you move through the campus should someone need assistance.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a ton of club options that are out there even if you think you don't have an interest anyone would like you can find something there for you.

    Great for these types of students

    This school is good for all students. I have classes with female and males and find that it is an interesting class regardless of the topic. While the ratio is still favored to women, we eliminate most of the bull at the start of classes and cut right to the area of focus so we can get out early.

    What to do for fun

    I love art and animal rescues.

    Food and Dining

    I am a commuter student so I am luck not to have to eat the food. But I can say there the best option is to opt of off side dining options along with coffee. The coffee on-site is not the best brew.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is not the way to go at this school. I have not personally expereinced this but from what I hear there are major issues with finding room for students and ensuring that the rooms/dorms are safe and free of bugs. Recent outbreak of bedbugs in the dorms off campus.

    Academic Rigor

    It is difficult, so please don't think you can slack off in a class at TWU. Slackers only make the rest of the class work harder.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you are aware of where you permit for parking allows you to park and when/if there are blackout times like holidays. This will help you avoid costly parking tickets with the campus police.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very safe. I've never gotten contacted by the school for any emergencies, or seen any suspicious people lurking. The campus allows bikes but not skateboards or roller blades or anything like that, so you're not constantly dodging people on the sidewalks, fighting for space. The campus is nice and up kept.

    Greek Life

    I do not participate, so I don't know.

    Clubs and Activities

    I work nights, so I don't participate in clubs or activities. I am usually leaving campus right after class for work.

    Bang for the buck

    The classes per credit hour are pretty cheap, cheaper than UNT right down the street for sure. I have only come across one teacher that just drove me crazy everyday, so other than him, the teachers are great, and you get a lot for what you pay for. Totally worth it.

    Food and Dining

    When I do elect to eat on campus, the student union has lots of options for quick and tasty food and snacks to get you through your day. And if you commute, the university occasionally offers a commuters lunch for free.

    Dorm Life

    I have never lived on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are definitely tough, but not so much that you are guaranteed to fail. Like most other colleges, you get back what you put into it. If you work hard, you will do great.

    Academic Rigor

    Biology is my major and is a good program. Other areas can be a complete waste of time.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure that your area of study is one of TWU's strong points. For example, if you are a nursing major, TWU is the best place for you to go. If you are a Chemistry major, maybe consider a larger, more well known school.

    In three sentences

    From 1-10 I give it 8. It is a good school if your are a nursing major or other related career but I do not recommend the College of Liberal Arts. I won't tell my experience, but if you are a student who wants to develop skills and maximize your potential this is not the right choice, sorry but it is true. However, other departments at this school might be the right option, for example their nursing department it is very successful.

    The campus has their very own police station. 24 hour protection, and police control. Safe from bullying, wreck less driving, and what ever else young adults feel the need to get into.

    What to do for fun

    Like most college students I want to have fun. TWU has parties, field trips for certain majors, and different events through out the year. UNT students even come over to join us in the fun! Don't miss out!

    Food and Dining

    Food and dinning services I have to say I will always look forward to. TWU has a buffet all day for only seven dollars, many restaurants on campus, and their meal plan is awesome. You can choose as many meal plans as you want for reasonable pricing, and cash debit card for buffets and restaurants on campus.

    Dorm Life

    Like many schools TWU was built many years ago, but there dorms are pretty nice. They have two beds, two closets, a bathroom and space for computers and a mini fridge. It's your typical dorm room, but the good thing is there's no community bathroom, and students at TWU barely spend anytime in their room. The dorm at this school is made for sleeping.

    Academic Rigor

    Texas Woman's university academic rigor is very simple. Simple because every action this school takes is to only help students succeed in their college career. This school challenges students to step out of their comfort zone, meet new people, and experience what it's like to have a partner to depend on academically. This school has many different programs where the students study together, live together, and share the same classes. Especially their nursing program, it's one of the top ratings in Texas. TWU offers students in the nursing program so many opportunities to be seen and heard academically, it's a competitive school and worth every minute spent there.

    Tips for prospective students

    My very own personal tips to prospective students is to always know what major you want to be in before you arrive to orientation of freshman camp. There are so many people that are willing to help with you studies, social environment, and help you out of your comfort zone , but your major is the first step. Also never be afraid to ask for help, or even trying to make new friends. Believe it or not, friends can be the key to a successful college career.

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's University is an amazing school. They have these mentor programs, clubs, and study labs for all students with different majors. If I had to rate this university , their rating would go beyond a ten for the fact that they help beyond education. With the school activities, helping students with jobs, and preparing them hands on for their major.

    There are things going on all the time. The gym is really nice and also hosts various classes and activities. There is an organization called CAB that plans many, many events and activities for students to do. Grab a couple of friends and go! You will honestly have some fun and take your mind off of things.

    Food and Dining

    Food will get a little boring after a while for some people. But they have a good variety and tend to change things up once in a while. It honestly is not that bad.

    Dorm Life

    Pretty chill. They have various activities for you to do and you get to meet people. If you get to be with the roommate you chose, you should be OK. And I would say about 9/10 times you will.

    Academic Rigor

    It honestly is not that hard if all you have to do is focus on studying. Some teachers work differently that others but I had some luck and got some pretty cool ones. Ultimately it all comes down to you. What you put into it, you will take out. Sacrifice and hard work equals success.

    Tips for prospective students

    Probably have been told this many times but seriously DO NOT procrastinate! You need your beauty sleep and you won't get enough if you have to stay up all night trying to finish an assignment. Don't get involved in any drama and stay on top of your assignments.

    In three sentences

    TWU is a very small school in that everybody pretty much knows everybody. People are friendly and depending on your major, you might have pretty much the same people in many classes.

    Bang for the buck

    TWU can be expensive, but there are many scholarships available through the university and departments if you ask early. Also, many graduate assistant positions are available.

    What to do for fun

    Many students spend time down-town during the day where there are several restaurants and coffee shops as well as antique and music shops to distract during study breaks. A mall is located not far from campus as well as many small local shops. There are concerts around town almost every night of the week and free music on the square often. Denton has many festivals during the year including a jazz festival.

    Food and Dining

    There is a cafe, Chic-fil-a, and cafeteria in the student center and two smaller cafes elsewhere on campus which offer lots of options at good prices. Off-campus there are plenty of dining options only a bike ride away, including local vegetarian/vegan fare.

    Dorm Life

    I did not live in the dorms but my roommate did during her undergraduate studies and she loved them. I have heard that the social life is very good while living there.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors expect that the student is willing to work independently and will approach them if there are any questions. Self-motivation is important and classes are competitive.

    Tips for prospective students

    Meet with your potential advisor for the programs you are interested in to see if you are a good match. Ask a lot of questions about all of the programs you are interested in to see what options are available for internships and research.

    Texas Woman's University offers a great variety of programs near the DFW metroplex, which has many internship and potential job opportunities during and after school.

    Great for these types of students

    Artsy, Dancers, Counselors, heart surgeons.

    It is definitely cheaper than the University across town I will say that much. With all the amenities that they provide it is an excellent steal!

    What to do for fun

    I work for fun. Yes, I know extremely boring. But because I don't receive much aid for college I am forced to work whenever I am not studying or in class. Sometimes I will get the rare chance to go out for a drink or two on the weekend.

    Food and Dining

    The food on the 2nd floor of the Student Union is very accommodating to the vegan, vegetarian, and the meat lover. I personally prefer the Chik-fi-la. I wouldn't eat downstairs in the cafeteria as much, it starts getting a weird smell once you've been in there for too long and I am not sure where it is coming from. However, they do serve a GREAT breakfast down there.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life can be tricky. If you are like myself, you will need to be in your own one-bedroom apartment. Otherwise, make sure you have a roommate set aside with you to live in that tiny cramped room for the year. No way would I want to live with someone whom I have never met previously.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics are everything they should be. The classes are wonderful and make you use your brain. The professors are helpful and provide great times for any type of student, whether it be the night owl, the morning bird, or the workaholic student. They try to accommodate however they can.

    Tips for prospective students

    A few tips I would give to prospective students would be to arrive as early as possible to make sure there is parking for your vehicle and go to the Kiosk in the MCL for your morning coffee. They are extremely quick and make a great cup of joe!

    Campus Safety

    Never in my life would I have dreamed that a college would have such safety, but TWU exceeds my expectations in all areas. There are emergency phones all over the campus so you can make a phone call to the campus police if needed. Guards walk around, they even have campus policemen that will take you to your car if you have late night classes. There is most definitely no reason to be scared on this campus. It's as if you never even left home.

    Bang for the buck

    College is so expensive, especially for families that are just barely getting by. I can honestly say that if you come to TWU you will be in less debt than if you went to a huge university. Everyone is so nice at this school and they are truly there for you. I would say going to a smaller school has such great benefits. The staff is actually present and they respond to your emails in a timely fashion. Tuition is probably the cheapest I have seen in Texas for such a dedicated school. Going here was the best decision I have ever made.

    What to do for fun

    There is never a shortage of activities at TWU. One thing that is key to having fun in college is signing up for clubs and programs. A lot of times they will have cookouts and games and they also give away free t-shirts and prizes. Free is always good in my book! Visiting the Student Union will help you get yourself out there and meet new people. Don't ever be shy in college because you are the one who makes it what you want. Joining clubs a lot of times can be very beneficial because it can promote scholarship opportunities; it is just a matter of if you have the time or not to commit to a club. There is a fabulous Fitness center where they have rock climbing, tennis, swimming, basketball, and even free Zumba classes! All of this is just within an inch of your fingertips. Check out as much as you can. All of this stuff is here for the student and essentially you are paying for it, so better to take advantage than to not!

    Food and Dining

    TWU does not halfway do anything. Anytime they have any events they always have such wonderful food. The cafeteria food is the same way. It is very modestly priced for students who are on a budget and it is conveniently located all over campus. Personally, I would not eat on campus regularly just because it does add up, and it is not always the healthiest option. The TWU Student ID cards are crucial for dining on campus though, so if you don't have one I would highly suggest getting one so that you can better control your spending. Dining dollars are loaded on your ID card so it isn't being directly funneled out of your personal banking account. You can even restrict your amount so you do not over spend.

    Dorm Life

    I have not personally lived in the dorms but they are very safe. The RA's that work there are very strict so do not expect to get off easy with restricted items. TWU has a very safe campus and police will even walk you to your dorm at night if you are feeling a little unsure. Dorms here are nothing special they are very basic. One perk to the dorms is you can request to be paired with people who share the same major as you; which provides huge networking opportunities, especially when it comes to studying for class.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are by no means easy here, but TWU prepares students much more thoroughly than say at UNT in Denton. It has been shown that student GRE scores at TWU vs. UNT are much higher. TWU students have a better chance of getting into graduate programs if they prepare correctly. Many students go to the library and study. Study groups are also a great way to up your GPA. You can most definitely expect to be studying the amount of hours that your class is worth or more. This school opens up a lot of doors though for your future so it is definitely worth a few years of hard work.

    Tips for prospective students

    This is most definitely not a school you can play at. The students that attend are very future focused as should be anyone planning on attending college. Communicating with your professors is highly recommended because the class sizes are smaller giving you have a greater chance of getting excellent recommendation letters for future opportunities.

    In three sentences

    This campus is absolutely beautiful and I do not know why anyone would not want to attend this college just based on that. Denton is a very lively city and TWU has many programs for students wanting to pursue medical careers, whether is is Nursing, Physical Therapy, or Occupational Therapy. The tuition is very affordable compared to other universities and you receive one on one interaction with your professors and there are smaller class sizes, so it feels as if you are still in high school.

    So far nothing has happen to me police are always around and they are always on the look.

    Greek Life

    So far all I have seen Greeks do is dance.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a few activities to join like right now I am in boot camp it 6:30 a.m.-7:30a.m. they have sports for boys and girls and wild out doors activity.

    Great for these types of students

    Quiet students that like to keep to them self and not deal with to many people is perfect for this school.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Since I have been here I have not heard of any.

    Bang for the buck

    I would honestly not recommend this school. I have made many great friends here though.

    What to do for fun

    This is what I mean I have not really had an amazing fun time not much goes on weekends can be a little boring when your done studying.

    Food and Dining

    Food and dining is okay just the hours of things being open really bothers me.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life here is not all that compared to other schools the elevators are horrible when in a rush and they stink all the time. The rooms are not that big but not to small.

    Academic Rigor

    So far academic wise it has been pretty good it is what I expected from college just because I took dual credit I am use to the routine.

    Tips for prospective students

    For prospective students if you are like me and like to have fun just as much as you study I would not recommend TWU just because you might not feel satisfied. If you are very quiet and to yourself I think it is a great place to make friends.

    In three sentences

    So far I am enjoying my classes and surroundings at TWU. The only thing that is bothering me is that there are really no activities for the students like at other universities and I feel like I am missing out on a lot. I would like to experience the full college life for example football games and community hours.

    Campus Safety

    Great. Campus officers will follow you to your car if necessary, and monitor the two main doors on the first floor constantly. They make you feel very safe in such a busy part of Houston.

    What to do for fun

    In Houston, there is plenty to do. Being right in the heart of the Texas Medical Center, you're literally blocks away from some of the most accredited hospitals in the world. The Houston Zoo, Rice University, and Downtown are just minutes away. Houston has a fun; hip vibe to it. Plenty of local cafes and bars in Montrose that light up the night life.

    Food and Dining

    There's no dining hall at this campus. There's vending machines and the cool thing is that there is refrigerators, freezers, and microwaves on every other floor for students whom bring their lunch.

    Dorm Life

    TWU in Houston does not have Dorms. So I could not tell you much information about this topic. I still live at home for financial reasons.

    Academic Rigor

    These teachers aim for your success ,but do not spoon feed the information to you. As in Nursing, the information is a need-to-know basis, so it isn't easy ,but very engaging. The teachers help you remember the information throughout their lectures and get involved with personal stories of their own that help you remember the information.

    Tips for prospective students

    My advice is that to be a part of TWU, you must be a dedicated student that wants to succeed in further endeavors. TWU is a competitive school, as is every other school, but to be a TWU student is truly an honor. Work hard and don't give up. I am in the Nursing program at the Houston campus and I did not get accepted the first time I applied. As heartbroken as I was, I did not give up. I hit the books, studied hard, and I am now a part of my dream school. I applied to five other very accredited programs ,but as soon as I got the acceptance letter from TWU, I literally cried with tears of joy. Although it is not a huge school, you will enjoy your time here. Every person becomes your friend, and it is truly an experience I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

    In three sentences

    I am currently attending Texas Woman's University's Nursing program at the Houston campus ,and it is truly a school worthy of its' name. This school is a school that ultimately cares about their students' ,and wants them to succeed. I am proud to be a part of this program ,and the teachers aren't just teachers, they're your friends and ultimately make learning fun yet educational at the same time.

    Campus Safety

    TWU is one of the safest campus, we constantly have police officers driving through our campus 24/7. We also have emergency poles in case you would like an escort to walk you to the dorms late at night or you just feel unsafe at any point.

    Greek Life

    Our Greek life is very unified. All the different councils get along and do events together. There are three council NPC, NPHC, and Multicultural. The Greeks are always working together to support each individual sorority or fraternity.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are over 120 student organizations. If you cannot find an organization that is not a fit for you it is very easy to start your own. Everyone on campus is mostly involved in one organization.

    Great for these types of students

    I say TWU is a great school for students who are really motivated academically and have a pride for their school. Also those who are willing to look past the college years and have a head start for getting great connections for their future.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a ton of traditions that students are involved in producing. One being what is called midnight breakfast, it occurs during finals, and it's a little carnival type break from studying. Free breakfast is provided along with other give away and prizes.

    Bang for the buck

    I believe that TWU is very affordable, and you get what you pay for. The tuition is one of the cheapest in the state, and you we are highly known for our education.

    What to do for fun

    The Denton Square is really fun, and we have Fry street, and country dancing. There are many activities to do off campus because we have UNT students in Denton as well.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining services aren't all that great. The food quality is getting better, but the hours the dinning halls are open are not very accommodating.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is pretty good, you have two women only and one coed dorms. They are very community like and you always have activities going on within the residence halls.

    Academic Rigor

    For all you science majors, TWU is well known for sciences so it is a very competitive and challenging environment. TWU takes their academics very seriously, so do not think that you can just fly by and study for only a day. Most subjects require at least 2-3 hours a day of studying.

    Tips for prospective students

    BE INVOLVED! The advisors, faculty, and staff are there to help you in any way possible. Being a small school it is very easy to make connections with faculty and staff that can help you after you graduate. Also take the time to introduce yourself to your professors because again being a small school they might not remember the name but they'll remember the face. Which could help you at the end of the semester.

    In three sentences

    TWU is the best schools! It is so easy to get involved here and make great connections! By far the easiest school to navigate in every aspect such as buildings and help from departments!

    Great for these types of students

    - strictly academic based students - students that like smaller settings - students that don't mind being around a lot of girls

    What to do for fun

    Fry street between UNT and TWU is always a great place for night life

    Food and Dining

    The underground food gets old and boring fast, but its alright. Upstairs in the main dining area, there is much more variety and tasty foods, but still would get old fast if you go there too much.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live on campus, but I have friends that do and majority of them would say it's just 'alright'.

    Academic Rigor

    TWU is pretty much directed to academics only. The are serious about education.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want to consider Texas Woman's, make sure you are serious about working towards your degree and not playing around. TWU is highly considered among nursing and other health majors. We are the best for it! If you want to party, TWU is not the place for you. For those that do not like big settings, Texas Woman's is the campus to consider.

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's is a great university to consider. They care about their students, it is an intimate campus that makes you feel like you're not just a number, and the people are very nice and helpful. Texas Woman's is a school that truly believes in getting the best education possible.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very confidential. There's at least two police cars always circling around the campus at night and they have emergency poles all around campus. Coming from a ghetto neighborhood, I was mainly surprised at how confidential the campus is here. People could leave their purse anywhere and it will still be there for when you return. My roommate even lost her phone on campus and they returned it to her. The feeling of being secure and safe is an amazing feeling a student should always have.

    Clubs and Activities

    Clubs and activities are a great part of the college life. Activities are almost posted everywhere in order to get people to come out and socialize, enjoy the night. Clubs are rather more hidden, you have to actually search for them in order to get involved. But the activities here, are indeed amazingly fun.

    Great for these types of students

    Texas Woman's University is great for students who rather have a small class than one filled with 300 to 500 students. The campus is small, in comparison with UT at Austin, UNT, UTA, etc. The school is also very affordable compared to others.

    What to do for fun

    Denton is a pretty lonely town, but if you really try you'll be able to find something to do out here. Getting involved in clubs and volunteering will definitely get you out there and busy. It just depends on your moves.

    Food and Dining

    The underground cafeteria, green room, and small stores on campus all serve a variety of foods to choose from. It's better than your average school meal. The only bad thing about the food and dining is that it's only open for certain hours, especially the underground cafeteria. After seven, both the underground and green room are closed until the next day.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life mainly depends on how you react to them. I would consider knowing your whole hall, socialize with as many people as you can. The dorm life is better when everybody is involved and having fun with each other. There are three different residency buildings: Stark Hall, Guinn Hall, and Jones Hall. Stark is known as the best in regarding to the rooms and people, all girls. Guinn is coed and has pretty nice rooms as well. Jones is known for the worst on regarding the community restrooms. In my perspective, I live in the Jones Hall and I don't find it as worse than Guinn or Stark. Jones only had three floors and the restrooms aren't as bad as expected. I wouldn't mind staying in Jones again.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors give out enough work to keep you occupy and learning. The tutoring centers are open to anybody, and they're a great help when needed. Professors do try to help you in any way possible and they're very understanding. The library is always open for students when needed and has an amazing view inside. A variety of students even spend their time studying outside, near the fountain or on a bench anywhere.

    Tips for prospective students

    Being friendly to as many people you can, will definitely help you throughout the school year. Time is always on your hands, be sure you use it wisely. Organize your schedule, things needed to get done, and especially, deadlines. Last but not least, don't stress yourself out too much, enjoy yourself you're finally a college student!

    In three sentences

    It's the perfect size in campus for a comfortable school. The view is amazing and the area is peaceful and calm. People mind their own business and you are in charge of taking care of your stuff.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to ask plenty of questions to your academic adviser.

    In three sentences

    The environment of the school is welcoming to new students. If ones major is something other than nursing than the school is for you. The classes are small so there is plenty of time for one on one with the teachers.

    Campus Safety

    I would honestly say this is the safest campus to be in. They supervise it 24/7, and it's actually very small.

    Greek Life

    There's a lot! And all are based on what kind of personality and group you fit in better.

    Clubs and Activities

    They are many sororities in the school. There's basically anything you can think of here.

    Great for these types of students

    This is a great school for woman, who want to succeed. Also has a great speech therapist program as well as nursing.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    A lot of stores around campus, other than that a lot of trees. We have bible study for every type of religion.

    Bang for the buck

    My experience from coming to Twu, has helped me mature a lot more. It has showed me how to do things on my own, other than depending on someone else. It's a great school where you feel extremely safe.

    What to do for fun

    Study, and join clubs because there's pretty much nothing to do but attend class.

    Food and Dining

    Food can be improved, we get served the same food every day. Cafeteria hours don't really work with our schedule.

    Dorm Life

    It's very calm, and safe but a little boring.

    Academic Rigor

    Great school, professors really help you !

    Tips for prospective students

    Study,Study,and study! Don't forget about deadlines. Always work ahead,and get plenty of rest. Do your homework, if you want to pass.

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's University has great programs. Also it helps you out with many financial aid money. I rate this school a 8,because they are many things that could be improved.

    The few options on campus are not suitable.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in a dorm however I know a number of students that do. I have heard a variety of comments about the dorms, some positive and some negative.

    Academic Rigor

    I am in a doctoral program so I cannot speak to the overall academic rigor at the undergraduate level. I believe my program could be a bit more rigorous.

    Tips for prospective students

    Communicate with your professors. Once you start college you entered into a relationship with them. The relationship is a product of the effort you put into it. Learn and use campus resources.

    This is a great university to attend.

    What to do for fun

    There are a lot of places to go for fun believe it or night the gym is one. Down the street from TWU is a movie tavern and you can go watch movies with your buddies at a student discounted price. You can also go bowling and have the time of your life.

    Food and Dining

    The food is okay but it's nothing to write home about. You just have to be grateful that you have something to eat at times, even though the food sucks. You'll pretty much eat the same thing everyday, chick-fil-a, the cafeteria, and the garden room.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are fair, as in a simple place to rest your head, eat, study, and shower. If you don't attempt to decorate your dorm then it will look like a jail cell. Other than that you will meet nice people in your dorm hall and there are always events for each hall to participate in so you can get to know one another. If you don't try to make friends then it will be the most boring experience of your life.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics are not hard in my opinion, all you have to do is pay attention, study, and do your work. I will say though that since this school is known to be one of the best schools for nursing majors, the science classes seem to be a little bit harder. No matter what your major is, you will acquire the best knowledge from this school.

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's University is a very good school to attend. It's not a big school nor a small school, its just the right size. The academics here are great and the professors are very hands-on.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The campus is gorgeous

    Bang for the buck

    The nursing, music, and education majors will receive an awesome education at a fairly low price.

    Go to Dallas, there isn't much in Denton.

    Food and Dining

    The food sucks!!! Few options, even less for vegetarians. The calorie count is unavailable, and a pricey meal plan is required for all students.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are small, old, and expensive.

    The quality of education you receive here is all up to you, if you work hard you will learn a lot. Otherwise, you will just skate by.

    Tips for prospective students

    Campus Safety

    TWU is one of the safest campuses in the nation. You are never too far from a call station, and can request an escort to make you feel even safer.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition is low (comparatively to other schools in the area), and scholarships are common. For what you pay, you can be sure to learn it's worth and more.

    What to do for fun

    Texas Woman's University is just a quick walk away from the Denton town square. In addition to having many interesting shops and restaurants, you can also occasionally go to a festival or fair here!

    Food and Dining

    There is only one major dining hall, so choices are limited. Still, the meals vary enough to keep your food interesting!

    Dorm Life

    Dorms are co-ed, but since the majority of the student body goes home on weekends, the social outlook can be fairly bleak.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes begin easy, but gradually increase in rigor. By the end of a semester, you will not believe how much you have managed to learn!

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid to join organizations. There is more to life on this campus than going to class. Organizations such as the Athenian Honor Society, Student Senate, and Resident Hall council are great ways to get involved!

    In three sentences

    Though somewhat lacking in social opportunities, Texas Woman's is an excellent university to pursue a degree. The professors are very involved in student life, and smaller class sizes allow for more individualized education. Despite being sparse on the weekends, Texas Woman's is still an excellent place to take the next step in your education.

    Campus Safety

    This campus is SAFE! We have security to watch out for anything. And like I've said it's a small campus, not the partying time. It's usually quiet around here at night.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are many clubs and organizations to chose from. You can chose what your most interested in. Also being apart of theses clubs look good on your resume!

    What to do for fun

    For fun, I dance, I'm on TWU bollywood dance team called Chingaarii which is great physical activity for me. I also go the gym which is right next door to my dorm. I study at the Library, I go out to events thrown by TWU. There's this place called the Denton Square around our campus and this place has many boutiques and restaurants, I go here with my friends. There's a lot to do here!

    Food and Dining

    I wish the food here was better! Honestly, you pay for a meal plan when you decide to dorm and on that plan you can chose how many meals you can get for the week. With that comes a card that you use every time you want to eat. On that card you have something called dinning dollars, and that money is used for anything. For example I chose the 8 meals a week plan and that comes with $250 of dinning dollars. My meal plan is used only at the underground (this is where is think the food is not that great, we need more of a variety rather than the same things every day) and your dining dollars can you used at the C-store or the Garden room upstairs. You can always put more money on it.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is great! You get to meet a lot of people here, and develop friendships with them. If your hungry we have a C-store which is in the dorm and you can go to at any time but not after 11pm. Your RA on your floor handles any complaints or issues that you have. She/he also plans fun activities for your floor to engage in. Dorms are beneficial because you can go to class and walk back in between for a nap. It's that close to all of your classes.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are not extremely difficult here. Just make sure you chose the right class and a good professor. The Professors here are generally nice and willing to hep their students. There are tutoring centers here on campus and other forms of help if you need so. You just have to be determined and wanting to do good, no slacking off! So far I think it's been pretty easy, and I'm just an average student.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you want to go to a party school this is not the school for you in honesty. Like I've previously mentioned, it's a small campus neighboring UNT which is another university. This is NOT and all girls school, there are many guys that attend TWU. If your plan is to excel and be stay focused in school this is for you! Classes are not as difficult and it's a quiet campus most of the time. There are many clubs/organizations here you can be a part of!

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's University is a small campus full of diversity. The professors and students are very helpful and friendly here. It's easy to get to class, and a good school to stay focused.

    It is great, we play games together, watch movies, go out on the town, and study together. It really feels like a second home.

    Academic Rigor

    Simply doing homework and attending class makes everything a lot easier. The classes are just like any other if you don't study you probably will not pass the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Some tips that I would give is to attend class regularly, teachers are more forgiving when you attend every class and are more inclined to listen to what you have to say. Also do your homework, it sounds like a cliche, but it really helps prepare for upcoming test and finals.

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's University is for one the perfect size University with less than 10,000 students enrolled. The classes are small enough that you can create a relationship with you Professor. Above all the people at TWU are helpful, caring, down to earth, and all around good people.

    Crooked Crust is a hot pizza joint (there's only two, one in Denton, Texas the other in Norman OK) You can get a 1/4 pizza with anything on it and a drink all for six bucks! Great place to relax and enjoy your friends and Denton.

    What to do for fun

    There's a lot to do in Denton, Texas if you attend Texas Woman's University. First, on campus you can take Zumba classes at the fit and rec center, you can join an organization and put on many activities and shows, you can hangout at the purple lounge in the student rec (relax and chill) Off-campus you can go to Denton square and enjoy historic buildings there, you can go to Fry street and enjoy the bars and local food joints around University of North Texas - literally five minutes away from TWU.

    Food and Dining

    There is not a lot of dining options on campus because the school is smaller than larger university but there is enough to eat at a different place each day of the week. But the school is planing on building a larger student union with more food, dining and room options for the students.

    Dorm Life

    TWU population grows every year and they have accommodated several students by providing a lot more options than when I originally got there. No matter what classification you are, they will have housing options for you!

    Academic Rigor

    Very prestigious school. The work is harder but you are in college so what do you expect? Come to class, take great notes, talk to professors and study hard and you will do great!

    Tips for prospective students

    Start your freshman year strong. Not a lot of students take heed to the seriousness of their freshman year but it really does say a lot about you when you are applying for certain programs. Also, join as many organizations that you can handle along with your schoolwork, it will definitely look good if you are every applying for programs, organizations, sororities etc...

    In three sentences

    Overall, I am impressed with TWU. They have several programs that would fit for anybody. Currently, I am a senior graduating in May and my past fours years at TWU have been great. They have great staff in all departments, very friendly and always willing to help.

    Campus Safety

    I personally felt safe at the University, However after I left I was still getting alert text messages and there were a few about some women being raped or gone missing. Just be careful, especially at night!

    Clubs and Activities

    I was a full time student and working full time so can't really give a rating on this

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who would like a dominantly female populated University.

    Bang for the buck

    There were little to no distractions being that mostly females attended and I could concentrate on my studies and feel more comfortable in class answering questions, and going there looking comfortable without feeling the need to impress that of the opposite sex.

    What to do for fun

    I just honestly went to my classes, and then went home or to work. However, I did hear about a lot of different events that were held there at the University.

    Food and Dining

    Never had a problem with the food. They have plenty of choices.

    Dorm Life

    I do not qualify for this.

    Academic Rigor

    I'm really neutral about this, cause like previously mentioned you take a gamble on professors that care and the ones that don't.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared to take a gamble on professors especially in the chemistry department; I had a professor that didn't teach us anything and just read off of notes. If it wasn't for the lab tutoring center I would have failed. So ask other students that have been there who the great and helpful professors are, especially in the subjects that you know will give you a hard time. If you are a transfer student double check all your credits yourself so you can know what will/will not transfer. And if some do not transfer you can still request for them to take a look at classes you think should. Make use of all on-campus resources; This will make or break you. That includes making good acquaintance with your fellow classmates. You don't necessarily need to live on campus to be successful, but I would suggest living in close proximity for the reasons of group projects, or just using the computer in case something goes wrong with your internet access. Like most colleges, A lot of the coursework for that classes are completed online.

    In three sentences

    I was an off-campus transfer student, and my experience at TWU on a scale from 1 to 10 was a 5.5; one of the main reasons being that they made me retake some of the classes I had already completed at a previous college that was suppose to transfer and they transferred it after I had brought it to their attention but it was too late which caused a lot of frustration.' Some professors were not helpful at all and left you to teach yourself while others took that extra mile to ensure that their students exceeded; one great thing I can admit about the college was that they had excellent resources when it came to getting help in specific subjects. I just happened to get a few professors that didn't really care about the success of the students and not to mention the bad direction of my advisor when it came to directing me to think I had to retake classes I already had taken which ads to the low score towards the University.

    What to do for fun

    Honestly, if you are looking for something fun to do, you won't find much going on in Denton except the Square. If you're looking for something fun to do, you might have to drive to Plano, Frisco, Downtown Dallas, or Fort Worth.

    Food and Dining

    Honestly, the underground ( which acts as the campus cafeteria) is hit or miss sometimes. They do have great culture day foods though. The food upstairs offers a lot more option, but require dining dollars.

    Dorm Life

    Most of the dorms are suite style, except for Jones Hall. They are currently remodeling some of the floors, so there are some improvements.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your major, the academics can prove to be challenging or easy. For nursing, a lot of the science course you will have to take are weeder courses, so be prepared for quite the work load.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would highly suggest that students get to the know the campus very well. If anything, make sure you know where the Bursar's Office, Financial Aid Office, Register's Office, Health Center, DPS, Counseling Center, Housing Office, Emergency Poles, and the offices in which you major's advisers are located. That brings me to my next point, make sure you meet with your academic adviser at least once a semester. This is to keep up to date with your academics and any new policy that might have been implemented. Never walk by yourself at night if you have class, find a buddy. If you drive, be very careful on University Pkwy and Highway 380, these are some dangerous roads.

    In three sentences

    Texas Woman's University is a great school for students who prefer a less populated university. I would say that most of the teachers here are pretty top notch. The grounds are beautiful during the spring, summer, and fall.

    Campus Safety

    It is a really safe campus. I can walk around late at night without fear. They also set various emergency calls station throughout campus. You can also call to get someone to escort you if you feel uncomfortable walking at night alone.

    Bang for the buck

    Really cheap tuition compare to other colleges. You definitely do not want to be fill with student loan in the future.

    What to do for fun

    There are always campus activities going on. You can also do rock-climbing in the Rec center. Also the Square is a walking distance. The Square has shops and stores where it ranges from vintage shop, candy store, ice cream shop, cafes, bookstore, and other little places. You can definitely find something to do!

    Food and Dining

    The food is actually pretty decent. They have different cuisines everyday. There is also a salad bar if you are more on the vegetarian side. It's not home food but you will definitely not think it is disgusting.

    Dorm Life

    I live in on the Honor's Net which means all the people on the floor take the same honor classes. Everyone is really nice and welcoming in the dorm. Also my roommate is amazing! I suggest finding someone with similar interests or someone who has similar sleeping schedule at orientation. I met my roommate there and we really enjoy each other company. Additionally, we get an awesome view from our windows and the room is fairly big with a nice personal bathroom.

    Academic Rigor

    Compare to my high school, it is really not that much more difficult. You do learn a lot though! As long as you put in time to study and do all your assignments, you are good to go. But also it really depends on your major. As a reference I am a Biology major, but so far the workload is acceptable.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for the honors program! They are run by very amazing people and provide you with an immense amount of great opportunities. You are able to also get a lot scholarships. And apply for the Terry's scholarship too!

    In three sentences

    It is a really great place to be if you love a smaller setting. Since it is smaller, you are able to get that one-on-one with your professors. Also, everyone is super nice and friendly so you can easily make friends.
