The University of Texas at El Paso is mostly known as a commuter university. Living off campus is the norm, but rest assure that the city of El Paso is a wonderful place to be. Great departments to study in would be science, nursing, engineering, and education. The school could improve in its fine arts, liberal arts, and math departments. Rest assure that very department has professors and advisers who are more than willing to give their time to you, but you must put in your best effort. UTEP's athletics is not the best of the best, but it's the fans that give a great overall experience. UTEP gives opportunity to make your dreams flourish, so why not take the chance?
UTEP can be a great university towards future students who know what they want to do in the future. I unfortunately have had a bad experience with advisors claiming to help me when in fact, they shifted me off toward another direction. My favorite experiences have been engaging in an academic organization called the National Society of Leadership and Success where every member was able to help guide me into believing in myself and making the rest of my college experience successful. What makes UTEP unique is the cultural experience of international students and the landscape that UTEP has built on campus. International students make great friends and learning from one student to another is wonderful experience. The Centennial Plaza built on campus shows what UTEP as a university is. There are plenty of spaces to read and rest while communicating with other students.
I´m just a freshman at UTEP, but I must say that it is not necessary to be a Senior to feel part of the college at UTEP students really care about others and they are always doing different activities to make students feel part of UTEP. There are many things I like about UTEP the campus is really clean, not that big but it makes it easier for the students to move form class to class. The professors are really good most of them are Doctors, or Engineers, depending of course the section, but they really transmit to the student how prepare they are for their job, and one of the most important things is they show how real life is and how you must work torward not only your college time, but also they show you how you must work during your life if you want to suceed.
One thing I would like to change in UTEP is basically the buildings, make them new or at least complement them with new technologies.
