    Reading a post about a pizza shop, arcade type place near a college and made me think...what do the UTD:Richardson people do for recreation? They have dorms don't they? Are they all commuters and leave once class is over? I live in the area and can't think of any "hangouts" at all. Just wondering if there is a need or not. Also, demographics? Seems like a high percentage of Indians and Asians, but that might be my own misconception. I say this because I do see a couple hooka lounges in the strip centers.

    I imagine they do exactly what we did when in school and that age. I don't remember caring too much about how local things were, the couple times we went out a week we didn't mind traveling to fun. I imagine for UTD it would be Addison or 75 close by and Dallas, Victory, or uptown a little farther.

    Business related, remember how cheap college kids are.

    They do have dorms, but they're disguised as apartments. All those buildings West of campus up to Waterview are apartments ownded by UTD and used as housing for the students. You might also have noticed all the construction on the NW corner, by the driving range. Those will be dorms.

    As to the original question of how do they entertain themselves: I have no idea.

    Implied bestiality unrelated to ethnicity of students. Sex, drugs, rap (Rob's old) and the odd farm animal if there ain't nothin' else to hit.

    Always got the impression that UTD was more of a commuter school. UT Arlington definitely is.

    Also, I think you're right about lots of foreign students, but recalling my college days, the foreign students I remember stayed and studied in their room almost always, cooked in their room, and only left to go to class.
