University of Texas - Permian Basin Reviews
For a small college, it's great! An actual person instead of a number to the school. See a little bit of everything on terms of diversity. Campus is very clean, dorms are well taken care of. Food's pretty good. Always something going on for the students to get involved and meet new people on campus instead of going somewhere off campus possibly risking their safety here in the West Texas oilfields as you see not so friendly environments.
I did not think that I would love this school as much as I do. It is bigger than a 2 year school, but it is not too big that it is overwhelming. Rather than being in a class with 400 people, you are in much smaller classes and the professors really care to get to know you. There are so many resources available to the students that many of the students use on a regular basis. Housing, recreational, dining, and student activities are many of the things that make this school so great. Falcons up!
I have recently been accepted into the Geosciences program for graduate studies. I have been around the program, but still fighting to get in this Spring 2020 semester. I have met faculty and students at this school, as well as former students now working as geoscientists, and have toured the campus. I can honestly say even though not attending the school yet and following them on the internet, I can say I like what I see about the school despite being relatively small compared to other schools. This college has a lot of potential to do great things. That is why I am still trying to get in with financial help, but I cannot wait to finally get back into the classroom at UTPB.
