“When I left the Air Force Academy, I wanted to go to a place that would provide a quality education without having to pay private school tuition. UT Dallas really stood out from the other schools I was considering. It offers a high quality education that's comparable with many of the nation's top-ranked schools.”
― Brandon Maxey
