University of Texas - El Paso Reviews
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!
I am still a UTEP student. I like that they are making an effort to become one of the best. They have a new program called UTEP Edge which purpose is basically to develop well-rounded students by the time they graduate. This entails having a great first-year experience, student employment, having internships, becoming a leader and studying abroad along with being an awesome academic! They really care for you but won't be after you if that makes sense. You have to have the hunger to be better and then and only then will UTEP help you in achieving your dreams.
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!
