University of Dallas Description:

The University of Dallas, a Catholic University, is impressive for several reasons. On the financial aid front, nearly all students receive significant grant aid. Academically, the university can boast of a 13 to 1 student / faculty ratio, and the school's strengths in the liberal arts and sciences earned it a chapter of the prestigious Phi Beta Kappa Honor Society. This is no small feat for a school that was founded just a few decades ago in 1956. The university has a campus in Rome where nearly 80% of all undergraduates study for a semester.
