Reviews for The University of Texas at Arlington
Honestly, I never thought I would end up going to UTA. When I was a senior in high school, I remember applying to UTA because it was close to home and I knew that I was going to be eligible for scholarships they offered and thought it would be affordable. Now, As a junior at UTA, I am glad I applied to UTA. I love the campus, the diversity, and the atmosphere. UTA is a really diverse campus that offers its students many opportunities to grow as leaders and is growing with new and better things.
Another thing I like about UTA is that it is not a BIG campus, but it is also not small. As a freshman, I remember being freaked out about how big classes would be, but they were not as bad as I thought. Some of the basic classes, of course, will be larger than some of your major classes but it is still an okay student to teacher ratio. Most of the professors are interested in helping you and talk to you if you have any question, etc. Workload, of course, is nothing like high school, but I think college is more about being responsible and become more independent. Professors will help you out but would not constantly continue to remind you about your responsibilities as students, if you want to succeed you have to put effort yourself.
If you are one of those persons who loves being involved or if you are just wanting to get out of your box and become involved in school, UTA is a great place for that. I think this is one of the reasons why I like UTA! I was involved in so many organizations, sports, and clubs in high school and I am glad UTA has so many opportunities to get involved in school. These past two years I was actually leading one of the longest standing organizations on campus and it was great! You get to expand your network and meet many people around campus! I was also involved in a new group called the Wranglers, which was a spirit group for the the basketball team at our newly open stadium, College Park Center.
The most attractive feature of the degree program I took at UTA, was the online nature of the courses. Almost every course except one was well designed and presented in a way that enhanced the learning process.
Workload in almost all the courses was heavy, but worthwhile, and helpful in understanding the topics or concepts. Most professors and academic coaches were helpful, were knowledgeable in their areas, and seemed to work fine in this new online format.
Was not really involved in student life, etc. since I was an off-campus online student. On the various occassions when I did visit the campus, such as graduation, the bookstore, graduate school, etc. - they were enjoyable experiences.
I like that the school was secure and very well lighted.
The Instructors were very good about helping.
Really wasn't involved much
