Finding an apartment to stay in off-campus is easy, just very expensive.

I received the aid that I needed and the process seemed to be an adequate and take the fair amount of time and paperwork that you would expect.

It is a great campus, but the community can be a bit dangerous. Also, parking in very slim, and some of the equipment in the classes are very old, or many times may have technical issues. Also, accessing the internet in some places is troublesome.

If there is a drug scene at UT Southwestern, I am unaware of it. I don't know of anywho who uses drugs. Although alcohol is used socially from the popular crowd, it is done off campus and in the privacy of ones home, not on campus.

Its very hot during the summer. The spring can be scary when storms come due to tornadoes. It can also snow in the winter and no one knows how to drive in it.

Haven't started school yet, and this is a graduate program, so I am not so sure there is a Greek life.

It's a medical center, so the selection is limited, but the programs are renowned!

We have VPs in every class that are responsible for organizing the social functions for the class. They often do night parties, which can be cheaper for students and a nice way to get together

Health & Safety:
It's great campus, and the school works hard to keep us safe! However, it's in a lower income area of Dallas, which has its own implications. I don't feel in significant danger though.

The Nursing program at Southwestern is great. In one year you achieve your LPN. They do not accept everyone, so you are placed in a class where everyone wants to be there. The class size is small and you get a lot of attention from teachers. The supplies they have are also excellent.

The local atmosphere is pretty upbeat. It is fairly close to downtown Cincinnati. Traffic on the expressway is a little tough but besides that, it is easy access. There is a mall located across the street. Close all in one stores such as Walmart, and plenty of places to grab lunch. Everyone one here is very nice and respectful. There is a minor league team in town called the Florence Freedom and all the Cincinnati teams are only 15 mins away. There is not many other colleges too close though.

Drug Scene – I've already passed the drug scene/ alcohol scene when I was an undergrad. I don't see drugs or alcohol around campus. I don't know anyone that does drugs or drinks excessivly. There are campus cops around, but I've never scene them having to encounter anyone.

Guys & Girls:
UT Southwestern is a diverse school. There are a lot of different nationalities at the school. There aren't that many different looks. You don't have "punks" there or "thugs". It's a medical school, which most people are doing their masters programs. Most people have outgrown those looks by the time they get there.

Dorm Life – I really can't answer this question. I own a house in a different city and commute to school daily.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
