Hi,

Just wondering if anyone was going to University of Texas at Arlington this Fall, or Spring semester. Or maybe someone attending now?

Just trying to gain insight into their programs and residential neighborhoods around campus.

Thanks! :)

What is it you are wanting to know specific. I hate Arlington ,to congested. But I know there are tons of apartments around. UTA is in a heavily populated area ,it just smothers me. My husband is a full time student there. And I am a walking collection of nursing school info. I have info from everywhere just because Im hoping someone will take me. I know about the pre-classes and such as that just let me know what you need... :)

UTA is one of the schools I will apply to, but that won't be for a while. I wanted to take my prerequisites there, but I didn't score high enough on my ACT to get in:crying2: . I will be applying to UTA for the fall of '05 to take my last two semesters of prerequisites. I want to start the nursing program in the fall of '06, that is if I get in.

I used to live in Arlington and although it is very crowded it is a nice place to live. I lived in north Arlington in some apartments off of Lamar. Most of the apartments over in that area were good, but a few weren't. As far as right around UTA I think it is the same. There are some nice neighborhoods and apartments, but not far away are areas you might not want to live in. I would suggest driving around the area to see what is nice and what isn't. That is if you live anywhere near the Arlington

Hi :)

I'll be graduating from UTA this December. I've been very pleased with my instructors in general - there are many supportive & caring professors that really challenge you to succeed. The school also has several nursing organizations to get involved and meet fellow students. This last year the program was expanded to include Freshman/Sophomore classes as well as a PhD program. Our dean, Dr. Elizabeth Poster, is very proactive and involved in taking the School of Nursing into the next generation by trying to institute a Simulated Hospital. Last but not least, our Learning Center and staff are AWESOME and devoted entirely to nursing students.

I'd be happy to share more if you have specific questions - please feel free to drop me a note :).

Hi! I plan on moving down from Houston this weekend. I understand about the congestion, that's why I am hoping to move as close to campus as possible.

The problem is not many apts. right around the campus accept families, and I have two children ages 10 and 14. Any info you have I am waiting for it, I have no family there and I hope to just do my best and finish with the best grades my mind and body will allow me to make. This is really a big move for my whole family and to tell the truth I sometimes wonder if I am uprooting everyone only for them to get there and be dissapointed.

I want to wish you the best of luck with your act and getting in. I have waited a long time for this. I have been denied 3 times by other schools and boy I sure am glad somebody out there is willing to give me a chance to finish the dream I started out headstrong in. I don't have time to drive around I have to take something really quick. The apts I looked at already some look like they need major help. But I notice alot of them look the same way.

Congratulations! I hope to attend your graduation. I am glad to know how dedicated the professors are in their subjects and the overall "Nursing" field itself. I do plan on getting involved in all the Nursing organizations I possibly can. I also plan on pledging this year to the nursing sorrority. I have not meet the dean yet but do plan on it soon. I see about the hospital part of it with a clinic right on campus and meds over the counter included. thats great. I have not seen the learning center yet but that will definitely be one of my first on the list spots.

I am having trouble getting in to the Nursing Concepts course and I try everytime updates are availlable, but that class just won't open for me. Is there any advice you can give me as to getting into the course, I really need it.

Thanks!
