My experience at the University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) has been amazing. I love the vibrant atmosphere of students who are dedicated to grow mentally and spiritually. The UTEP library is one of my favorite places because of it's beautiful architecture, it's peaceful environment, and it's delicious coffee shop. I could honestly spend hours studying there without even noticing. I joined the Baptist Student Ministries (BSM), a christian student organization at UTEP, and I have grown in my relationship with Jesus Christ more than ever! I recently came back from a mission trip with the BSM and gained new knowledge about different cultures and ideas. I couldn't be more thankful for all the incredible opportunities that UTEP has given me in only my first year of college!
Review University of Texas - El Paso
Lots of students say that there's nothing to do at UTEP, but if they would just READ THE EMAILS they would know that student life is poppin'. The campus is beautiful, most professors are cool, and anything you want to do is possible. Have an idea for a cool event? Talk to the Office of Student Life and they can make it happen! Missed your high school experience because you were homeschooled? Don't worry, college is way better! You can run for homecoming court (niche event, 9/10 would recommend), student government, and partake in enough extracurriculars you'll want to die!
The University of Texas at El Paso is a very big and beautiful campus! There are flowers, trees and grass almost everywhere, even though it is located on a desert area. So far the professors that I had are amiable and explain in full detail the subject and are ready to help. Since Texas is very hot place the buildings always stay cool. I have seen sofas and desks in every building that I enter so that students can rest or work before or after class. The Union, is a perfect place to relax with friends and work; it also consist delicious restaurants. The Recreation Center is heaven. It has more than a gym can have and also prettier. Finally, something that I find pleasant at UTEP is that workers, students, staff, and professors speak in a nicely manner to who ever is referring to them.
