The Fantastic Five

Meet the Rhodes Family

"We had five (yes, five!) children attending UTA. My husband was a UTA grad and was thrilled when the kids chose to attend his Alma mater. Our four youngest had attended choir camp at UTA every summer during high school and felt instantly at home on the campus. The orientations were informative and fun, and Maventure Camp was a blast for them. UTA made it easy for students to get involved with activities on campus and feel like part of a community, and ours were VERY involved! I was glad our kids chose UTA, but more importantly, they were happy they chose UTA!"
