This University is small enough where you don't feel like a number. You can go to any building on campus whether it be financial aid, registrar or admissions and you won't have to wait in a long drawn out line. You can take classes online as well on the campus. The professors and advisors are very courteous, attentive, and make your college years worthwhile. Not to mention, this University is very affordable. Very pleased to have earned my degree from UTPB!
Review Your College
Apartment style dorms, were one gets a room to oneself, shares a bathroom with one other person, and a living room with three. Freshman next year may have it rougher with the typical college style dorms that are being built, but upperclassmen dorms are to die for. Very chill environment!

I choose "It'seems okay" for mainly one reason: the University is undergoing development in athletics. This year will be the first year the school has a football team, which is very promising; however, since it's in its beginning stages I cannot rate its performance yet. The school, however, is effectively promoting these advancements, which has lead me to believe the program will going lots of support and strength in the future.
