University of Texas - El Paso Reviews
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!
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.
My first official experience with the University of Texas at El Paso occurred during my New Student Orientation. I immediately fell in love with the campus, faculty and staff, and programs offered by the university. The campus captures El Paso's beauty around school and in their Chihuahuan Desert Garden, offered to its students and the public. The faculty and staff consistently display a dedication to its students by making sure the transition from high school to college is a smooth one. The University offers a number of programs within its 9 colleges dedicated to helping students strengthen their education. Aside from the academic excellence UTEP upholds, it also provides various resources to its students in order for everyone to have a positive college experience.
