uwt is an excellent urban university. it has small class sizes, so a one on one with a professor is very easy to do. ideal commuter college for students who have jobs or want to stay close to home.

I've visited the campus and it's beautiful. It has a nice small town feel. All the historical buildings give it a nice feel. The dorms are great there as well. They are apartment styled, but not expensive.
