My first semester at UTA I was very scared of being the 'new' student and going from a community college to a big university like UTA. Do not be scared of not fitting in or not being able to make friendships. Friendships are very cool to make at UTA and you will meet GREAT people! Focus in your career and goals and surround yourself with people who have the same mindset as you.

My favorite professor has been Dr. Kathleen Tice. She has so much knowledge to share and you can feel her passion for literacy and the students throughout her lectures. Dr. Tice is also one of the most compassionate and understanding professors I have ever had.
