The school is located near downtown. There are many restaurants nearby. Also, there are bars and clubs nearby if you are interested in the night life! I am a freshman. So far, my instructors have taught well! A lot of work is required, but I'm sure that goes for any university. There are students of all ages. The parking is TERRIBLE. The school has purchased all parking anywhere near the school and parking permits are needed everywhere. I tried to buy a parking permit but there were no more available. So I was forced to walk a mile to classes, and even still had to pay at parking meters. I didn't mind the walk, but sometimes could not find parking. Another thing I didn't appreciate is that there are no places where I could pump my breast milk, since I am a breastfeeding momma. I always had to pump in restrooms which seemed unsanitary and quite frankly stinky at times. My adviser has been great! She is very helpful. I really do like the school, these were just a few concerns of mine.

It has been great so far in past 2 years of college. I met a lot of new friends and great professors, everyone gets along very well in that beautiful campus. Their food is great! Sometimes the school offers free food around campus, since the school itself has a lot events and fun activities to do. There is a lot of safety in this university, campus police roams around the school to keep us safe and make sure nobody gets hurt. I believe that the professors are the best here, there are really great with helping the students and they give their best to teach the students so that we can be successful.
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!
