UT Arlington is
the place for
ambitions of all
sizes.
Chris makes a concerted
effort to make the most of
his college experience, both
academically and socially, so
that he is well-prepared for
his future. “I see a future for
myself in the management
industry,” says the operations
management major. “I can
see many different exciting
career paths that will come
from this degree.”
How far you take your
education depends on how
far you want to go in your
career. And not everyone
has the same destination.
And as a resident assistant
and housing ambassador,
Chris is broadening his career
horizons much more by standing at the pulse of campus life.
“I get to see firsthand everything the school has to offer,”
he says. “I’ve seen so much
growth on campus in the short
time I’ve been here, and I’m
proud to have been part of it.”
We make sure you’ll have
what you need to help achieve
your broadest goals or most
focused plans. Whatever you
want to do, we’ve got
you covered. See our full list

Alanna likes to tell stories.
About the film and video graduate student who loves Ed
Wood movies. About the staff
member who wrote a book on
raising a disabled child. About
the honor society members
who showed preschoolers the
joys of reading. “Everyone has
a story. It’s just a matter of
finding it and telling it,” says
the aspiring journalist. She’s
always on the lookout for the
latest scoop while trying to
find a balance between her
schoolwork and her job. “I love
the spontaneity of the news
because it is changing, developing, and growing every day.”
We’ve got your
back.

How you customize your
UT Arlington experience is up

the future can be uncertain, but ut arlington has
provided me the support I needed to change my course
and forge a new path.
Caitlin Wright, Nursing
Caitlin was one of only five
nursing students recently
accepted into a prestigious
internship program. It’s an
opportunity she wouldn’t have
had if she didn’t change her
major her freshman year. She
shifted her focus from kinesiology to nursing and hasn’t
looked back.
She’s been learning criticalthinking skills in the
classroom and developing
practical skills while working
with simulated patients in the
Smart Hospital. Plus, her
internship provided the realworld experience she needs to
step into a healthcare setting
following graduation.

“I learned more about
myself as a nurse and gained
more confidence in my abilities. When it comes time to
work in the field, I will be
ready to provide quality
patient care,” Caitlin says.
Along with the Smart Hospital,
we’re also home to the
Nanotechnology Research and
Teaching Facility, whose researchers
manipulate individual atoms and
molecules that could herald the next
electronics revolution.

“Since coming here, I no

As a student driving to
campus from Dallas, Maggie
knew she was going to make
the most of her time at UT
Arlington. “I got involved
right away,” she says. “I
believe a true college experience isn’t complete unless
you participate with the university.” She got involved
with EXCEL Campus Activities her freshman year and
hasn’t looked back.
“Academics should be number
one priority in college,”
Maggie says. “But getting
involved has helped me
grow as an individual and
better equipped me for the
real world once I
graduate.”
David lives on campus in
Kalpana Chawla (KC) Hall

Some of our students live

a broad range of amenities that marry city life with
university life perfectly. Work hard, play hard, rest easy:
It’s life well lived at UT Arlington’s College Park District.
CHEER WILDLY
Catch concerts, games, and special events next door

events facility. The center provides a new home court
for the University’s basketball and volleyball teams and
gives the city of Arlington a signature facility for highprofile events and entertainment, conferences, and
community activities. For more information, visit
www.utacollegepark.com.
PLAY OUTSIDE
The Green at College Park is an inviting oasis for students,
