The University of Texas at El Paso is a wonderful institution that easily allows their students to receive a proper education. I have always felt that the staff here has cared deeply for each individual student- including myself. The professors have always been incredibly knowledgeable about the subjects they teach, and kind enough to provide their help for those not grasping concepts so steadily. In addition to that, the location of the school is a great place to immerse oneself into the Hispanic culture. The environment here is very diverse and full of life! It is truly a remarkable community to be apart of. Over the course of the years, the campus itself has undergone many renovations and series of remodeling to make it much more innovative for the students and staff members. It is a beautiful campus!

So far my experience has been great! Although we are in a pandemic and most classes are online, I would say that UTEP cares about their students. As a freshman at the university, even though I didn't get the full college experience that most receive while entering, I would like to say that the teachers there are a big help and also the TA's. At UTEP you get to meet to new people, although we are in a pandemic, you get to meet them through your virtual classes. For instance I've met about twenty or more people and that was only for one class, we all made a group chat were we all talk about the course or if we have any questions about the course or any other course. We all really help each other. That's one of the reasons why UTEP has made my first year of college a good start into the "adult" life.
Several degree opportunities, diverse environment. Enjoying the learning experience along with my classmates. Great athletic program with a huge college campus. Professors are the best and work with students when juggling work, family, school, other adult activities. If I had to start over, UTEP would be my selection for the graduate degree program. Go miners!
