5 the future can be uncertain, but ut arlington has provided me the support I ne eded 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. 6 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. 7 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. Consider our campus your test track. We believe your undergraduate experience should prepare you to step into your chosen fields sooner and with total confidence.

So we ve created an undergraduate experience to fit. 10 Built on more than 400 acres in the fourth-largest metropolitan region in the country, our campus is filled with everything students need for a rigorous, well-respected degree and an exciting, well-rounded life. Timothy enrolled as part of the Coordinated Admissions Program (CAP) with the intention of transferring after his freshman year. But that was before he immersed himself in campus and began making connections. I m the kind of person who makes big plans. But sometimes the best things are unplanned. I definitely feel like I was thrown a curveball and then I hit a home 11 Whatever your plans (major, clubs, activities), you can plan on doing some collaborative research in almost any field. See more: uta.edu/uta/research I couldn t imagine transferring out now, he says. Since coming here, I no longer see it as a short-term option. I ve found a partner for my long-term goals. And if I could do it all over again, I d still enroll at UT Arlington, just not as a CAP student. run. Timothy Johnson, Biochemistry

See more: uta.edu/housing David lives on campus in Kalpana Chawla (KC) Hall where he s a Peer Academic Leader for the Engineering Freshman Interest Group (FIG), as well as a member of the UT Arlington Cornerstone campus ministry. When he s not busy with all of that, he s working on a degree worthy of NASA. When I came here, I brought some pretty bad study habits with me, David admits. All the people who had given me positive support were back home, three hours away. But after joining my FIG, I found a whole new support system. commuting only limits your campus experience when you allow it to. Maggie Garza, Social Work We get where you re coming from. Some of our students live off campus, but we also have a large percentage who reside in one of our residence halls or apartment communities. In other words, our campus is full of people who come from very different places literally but they all share the same incredible experience. Whether you live on or off campus, as a UT Arlington student, you ll get to be part of a growing community. See more: uta.edu/livingoncampus 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. unbranded 13

See More: studyabroad.uta.edu I jumped at the opportunity to go to Mexico, she says.

12 To be honest, I didn t really know what to expect from UT Arlington. But when I got here, it was my turn to surprise them. Elvis Ibarra, Architecture Elvis is family- oriented. So it makes sense that when he moved onto our campus, he joined a freshman Interest Group (FIG). It s the team effort, friendship, and all-around togetherness that create our unique campus experience. 20 My Freshman Interest Group is where it all came together, he says. The people in my FIG became my friends. One of my instructors lived in my hall, and he would be there to talk any time. It was the perfect balance of living and learning. 21 Who says you can t choose your family? On our campus, you ll find lots of people willing to join your cause and rally to your side.
