  • The Planetarium at UTA is the largest digital planetarium in Texas. This great facility offers a range of shows including star shows plus special films often covering a science (usually space) topic. ...  read more »
  • This was a great learning experience for my boy (6 yrs) and interesting for adults as well. The program consists of constellations in Texas skies, planets, and stars. Watching the merry go round on th...  read more »
  • This place is in the middle of campus and it is a pain to find parking. The roads leading up to it are all blocked and the parking is closed. If you want to go here try next year. 
  • Wonderful school, but their services are ridiculously and laughably terrible. They don't straight up tell you what you need so you have to hunt everything down yourself. It takes them forever to confirm documents, sometimes even lose them. I had to physically go to their offices and show them that I sent documents in and have gotten confirmations. I don't understand how they keep losing everything I send. It is just so irritating. How can they be that incompetent. Overall great school though.
  • I graduated more than five years ago. I really don't understand why UTA always call asking for donations. My expensive college tuition wasn't enough? You built a brand new activity center, brand new parking garage, brand new gym with my tuition. Now you want an olympic pool, too?Money hungry! In general, colleges now are not like true schools. They compete with each other for the best amenities. They charge an arm and a leg to provide you with the amenities but don't care if they hire quality professors to teach you. They had so many foreign professors when I was in undergrad in COBA. English was not the first language for a lot of the foreign professors. The dean doesn't care if you complain because they got better things to do than to deal with students complaining about under performing professors. They'll also tell you it's up to the students to study. If we wanted to teach ourselves, we would have signed up for online classes. Lecture classes should provide us with quality lectures in English. It's hard enough to understand Accounting and Finance, adding in language and social barrier makes it super hard to understand anything. The evaluations that you do in classes does not count because they don't read them. The foreign professors will be there every year after you. Do yourself a favor, REMOVE MY NAME FROM YOUR CALLING/MAILING LIST ASKING FOR DONATIONS NOW! I DONT ASK YOU FOR HELP TO PAY FOR MY STUDENT LOANS SO DONT SEND ME STUFF ASKING FOR DONATIONS. RIDICULOUS!
  • Majored in Fine Arts: Graphic Design - got a great education from very talented teachers. Great experience! There are a lot of multi-cultural students here and certain housing has nearly 100% Indian population. They were great neighbors but I couldn't handle dinner time because the smell was very strong. Otherwise, was ok. I liked on campus housing and they had some houses for older students with kids (have to ask for it and there's a LONG waiting list). No pets on campus but I think I had a fish tank which was ok (I graduated in 2007, don't recall everything clearly).
  • Great School. The staff is friendly and the rooms are nice. I attended UTA for a seminar. Parking is pretty far away and the campus is huge. They had people posted to send us in the right direction though. Beautiful campus.
  • The teaching staff is adequate but the student body has too large a percent of foreigners. They lack the language and cultural skills to interact well with the staff and tend to grind classroom discussions to a halt. It would be a better school if they reduced the number of foreign applicants, but I know they won't because of the financial incentives the school gets for having them there.
