Degree: Educational Leadership
Graduation Year: 2017

Class syllabi did not match assignment modules in most classes, so students were constantly receiving emails stating that assignments were late or formatted incorrectly. Professors were unresponsive and uninterested. Required forms were posted on Blackboard, but students began receiving emails chastising them for using incorrect forms (we used the ones posted). Other files were posted, but were corrupt and would not open. Despite receiving emails pointing this out, corrected files were never posted. Some people in our groups started private groups just so that we could try to figure out what exactly was due and when. One IA agreed to preview a paper, so the student submitted it one week prior to the deadline for feedback and never heard back. Incredibly disappointing. I expected more from an institution affiliated with the University of Texas.

Classes were both online and on campus so it was a nice blend. UT Arlington needs more convenient parking and more access to campus escorts when on campus after dark. Bookstore made it easy to locate books and book ISBN so I could look for cheaper options.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2010

UTA is diverse and inclusive. I was more closely involved in Student Activities at UTA than I was at my undergraduate, but because I worked there. It can be hard to plug in for commuter students, but the staff does try. I had amazing professors in my Social Work and Public Administration programs.

Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2013

Good location with a lot of possibilities for internships in multiple fields. Organized departments that make a large school feel small and intimate. Lots of activities to participate in at school and around the area. Main negative as with any large school is lack of parking.

Degree: MBA

It was an EMBA class - personally I did not get anything from it, I only did it to add a line to my resume and my company paid for it.

Graduation Year: 2016

The University of Texas at Arlington does a great job of preparing students to excel in their career directly upon graduation. During the course of the program students will engage in both internships and on-campus job training that will prepare them for employment immediately upon graduation. The professors are very engaging and are readily available to assist students to ensure we succeed. The program is very flexible also due to the fact that they offer both in-class and online courses. The University also helps you secure employment by offering job fairs and networking events that students can participate in.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2012

I chose UTA because the class schedule was good for my work schedule. The cohort program was well coordinated, and worked very nicely. I could depend on the classes always being at particular times, and schedule my life accordingly.

College life was expensive but a great place to attend. It felt like home away from home. Plenty of things to do in the city.
