The University of Dallas - Comments and Student Experiences |
On the other hand, there is the student population. A great many of the students are hard-core Catholics, but there are those of other denominations, other religions, and even no religion at all. I have found that the ones who garner the most respect are those with convictions. If you want people to respect your position, you must be able to defend it with reason. It is stringent, and it might be too much for someone who puts his beliefs (in whatever) in the backseat.
This provincialism is also abudant in the athletic department. I play for the soccer team here, and I received a red card one game, (a usual 1 game suspension) and I was suspended for four games by the athletic director because "that's not how UD athletes should discipline themselves." I have played soccer my whole life and never had this happen to me.
Anyways I feel the biggest problem with the curriculum is the randomness as to what's on the test. I'm not asking for a study guide but I would like to know certain areas to focus on. And the grading seems random as well. I am transferring next semester because I can't have a sub 3.0 gpa.
The campus life isn't bad for how small and conservative this school is, but let me just say this. UD does not have a good-looking population of students -- not being mean just honest.
The staff here treats you as little kids. It is extremely frustrating. I am 21 years old, please show me some respect and I will happily return it. To get anything done I had to type up what I wanted to say and ask my mom to send it. Wow. The response she got was 10x better and they actually listened to her. Pretty ridicolous to me.
Well this review has been pretty negative but I really don't have many nice things to say about this place I've wasted two years at. I mean it's close to downtown so you can have fun, but there is nothing in the immediate surroundings except an overpriced gas station.I would not recommended this school to anyone except private catholic school kids who aren't very social and the idea of meeting new people sounds scary to them.
