What Students Are Saying

3.76 Average Rating
Definitely attend a preview visit and make sure that you join a FIG (Freshman Interest Group) if you are planning to attend.
Allison from Burleson, TX
- LIVE IN A DORM: You'll save money for other things and you will come away with lifetime friendships. So what if the dorm rooms are small...your cubicle at work will be small too, but this one comes with a bed! Dorm rooms come complete with wireless internet and cable for your television. You will skip traffic woes and save gas, too.
- ON FINANCIAL AID: Apply for aid early. 'Nuff said.
- DON'T GET A MEAL PLAN. This is the biggest ripoff known to modern man. The hours they serve are inconvenient and the university insists that they are. For example, in the fall I took out the largest meal plan they offered. I had an 8 a.m. class two days a week, and to eat breakfast before class, I had to get up and shower at 6 or 6:30 to get there when they opened at 7, and eat fast enough to get to class on the other side of campus by 8. Then, I had another class on the other two days from 5:30-6:50 p.m. and the cafeteria closes at 7:30 - yep, on the other side of campus. In the end, none of the meals will roll over to the next semester and you don't get a refund.
- BRING YOUR BIKE: (See Maverick Bike Shop above) You will use it all the time because it is difficult to find parking, parking is remote, you can use the close-in metered parking, but if you are one minute late, you can expect a $20 ticket the university will not cancel.
- LOCK UP SAID BIKE with a U-lock or a thick cable that can only be cut with a torch or grinder.
- CAMPUS COFFEE OPTIONS: There is more to campus than Starbucks. Two blocks from campus there is Health and Harmony Coffee House. Wayyyyyyy cheaper and better.
- TEXTBOOK OPTIONS: Check out BOOKDEFY, a textbook exchange online, or call the Maverick Bike Shop for information on the campus textbook library where students can check out their textbooks. Buying textbooks are expensive, so students should check out all other options.
- LOCK UP YOUR LAPTOP! A $50 laptop lock could mean the difference in your GPA, especially if your laptop gets lifted...
Sandra from Arlington, TX
Get involved!
Join clubs and participate with campus events!
Kristina from Grand Prairie, TX
This school is known for its Nursing and Engineering programs, but don't let that turn you away if that is not your intended major. The school as a whole is a great place to go. This school is growing by the day.
Anthony from Plano, TX
I would highly recommend this school. And especially if you can to live on campus for your first year or semester. The dorms are always planning fun events to participate in. Get active in groups and clubs because thats how you make the most friends. STUDYYYY!!! You have to read and study, if I could do it a second time with my first semester I wouldn't have goofed off as much and studied harder, you get behind really really fast. And last but not least...use rate my professor it will save you.
Samantha from Plano, TX
-Apply for FASFA early as possible!
-Get advised ASAP
-Take a campus tour
-Tour your department
-Get face time with you professors & ask questions!
Alexander from Texarkana, TX
Don't stress about declaring a major right away. And if you know you're going to fail a class, make sure and drop asap and take a easier class, and then take the required class at TCC.
Cindy from Arlington, TX
Here are some tips that I’d like you to take note.

Commuting: If you’re driving 30 minutes or so to UTA, and your friends wants to hit the movies, which is around the corner, CARPOOL. It’s the best way to save gas and money!

MAC: After class and you’re bored? Hit the MAC. There’s so many things that you can do there. You can: exercise/workout, ping pong, racquetball, basketball, dance, do some yoga, and much more!

Events: There are so many events that are hosted by UTA. You should really take your time away from studying and try to attend at least two. It’ll help you release the stresses from studying or from stuff that’s been annoying you. It’s a great way to meet new people and have fun!

Making New Friends: You have very little friends but want to make more friends to keep yourself comfortable when walking on campus or being on campus? Well, what are you waiting for! Join some events, organizations, etc. It will help you meet new friends and eventually, you won’t feel left out anymore.

Organizations: There’s not an organization that you like or your type? Create one! There are so many organizations on campus so I doubt you need to form one, but if you do, do it!
Diem-Phuc from Dallas, TX
Be involved! If you are an incoming freshman, join a Freshman Interest Group. They will help you develop good habits and you will make friends along the way.
Cassandra from Weatherford, TX
You will not enjoy UTA if you cannot adapt and make friends without having them be in every class with you. Time management is key to a college students success. All UTA teachers will tell you this and recommend getting a calendar and actually using it!
