UTA isn't as bad as some people might exaggerate it to be. It's actually pretty chill.|
Everything's pretty standard for a University, and their are plenty of opportunities--just like anywhere else. Plenty of resources to do what you came here to do and it's fairy inexpensive.
As far as the party scene goes, it's not all that but it's not hopeless. Parties DO happen, you just gotta be sociable and find them...making friends pays off...
As far as this safety thing goes--EXAGGERATION!Okay they may send out a random (like butt slapping) crime bulletin or two once in a while but there's nothing to be alarmed about out here--we're in ARLINGTON Texas!
Lot's of foreigners...
Greek life's alright...
No public transportation...
Sports: Basketball's good...Volleyball's good...Intramural sports are alright...not sure about anything else...
It is sometimes difficult to get things handled by faculty so being self-reliant and proactive is a very rewarding quality here, but there aren't many schools that are a walk in the park...especially public Universities... All and all: HONESTLY, I THINK UTA IS A PLACE FOR PLAIN OLE FOLKS WHO DON'T EXPECT TOO MUCH. UTA is chill, has many resources, and is pretty cheap; as far as entertainment goes, you better go find it!

| I came here from a community college, and as an online BSN student. First off, if you're an online student forget about getting any help from you advisors period. I went up to UTA because of the fact that after a month my degree plan was still not done. I was turned away because i'm online. Seriously? They then put me in with the wrong start date group. After that was sorted out I was then told they LOST my test scoring for my HESi exam along with my transcripts that were sent to the nursing department. Once I started the nursing program there was so much information thrown at us at one time. We had no clue what was going on. Financial aid is a complete disaster. They take their sweet time processing things, and half the time you have to call them to tell them what you need. On the upside, there has been a few great professors that are willing to help with whatever you need. Some academic coaches really want to see you succeed, and the clinical instructors really understand how tough and time consuming nursing school can be. Overall, if I had to do this again, I would not personally ever pick UTA again. Yes they have a great nursing program, but all the BS that comes along with it almost makes it not worth it! |
