I am currently in the UTeach program to become a math teacher for 4th-8th grade. I have only attended UT Tyler for a year, but I transferred from another college were I just didn't have a great experience. First off, the people on this campus are so friendly! I have always been nervous of not making friends in my classes and I haven't had a problem here on this campus. The teachers I have had so far have all been incredible. I even have an adjunct teacher which means he isn't there for the money (as most teachers aren't because the pay isn't incredible) but his wife is a doctor so he doesn't need to be there, he just loves to teach! The school really cares about your education and getting you onto a career path and they have so many events and such to help you along the way. It has really been a great school and I can't wait to further my education here and become a teacher!
Review University of Texas - Tyler
The University of Texas at Tyler is a great school to go to! It provides greats academics, sports, and diversity. It is an easy school to get involved in with all of the on-camous Activities and groups, such as the Campus Activities Board or Student Government! The University of Texas at Tyler is a championship school and is close in academics to UT in Austin! I am glad I went here and I hope that more people decide to go to sister schools of bigger Universities!
This is only my second semester here at UT Tyler, but so far I have had an extremely positive experience. The professors are interactive in many ways and promote a great learning environment. Lastly, it is very affordable compared to other larger universities and so worth the try!
