Q: What's your favorite thing about The University of Texas at Dallas?
A: I was able to grow in a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Its location and the community of Richardson, Texas made me feel safe to study on campus, also being able to experience a culture outside of my own.
Q: What's your favorite place on campus and why?
A: The Comet Cafe and The Pub to eat, relax, and enjoy the company of friends at UT Dallas. I also like to admire the view of the court side between the Multipurpose and Green building. When the weather is just right I enjoy the fragrance of the magnolia trees next to the Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science.
