Meet Tony

Architecture Major

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam

Why did you choose UTA?
In all of North Texas, UT Arlington provides the only accredited program for architecture. I even asked a lot of industry professionals, and many of them recommended UTA to me.

What are you most excited about?
Like most freshmen, I am excited about everything—classes, events, and meeting new friends. I’ll also be making friends who are similar to and different from me. In college, I get to be with friends and bond over things we like, something I wasn’t able to do much in high school.

How does it feel to be part of a unique freshman class?
Last time I called my aunt in Vietnam, it was my high school graduation. She told me something that I still keep in mind today, that whatever I’m doing is unprecedented and unique, and that it’s going to be something that I’ll remember the most. On the brightest side, it’s going to be something that I’m probably never going to forget.
