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 really like how my university is small yet diverse. This University is amazing for interacting and becoming close with people you may not have considered talking to you. We have students from all over the country, but even better, all over the world. The diversity is great for opening one's horizons and seeing different perspectives. The size is phenomenal for getting interpersonal interaction with professors and creating life-long friendships and relationships!
Academically, I’ve enjoyed my time here. The campus is fairly easy to navigate and is small, if that’s what you’re looking for. As for student life, there could definitely be more to offer and could see improvement in that area. Athletically wise, there’s a lot to look forward to for the future because athletics is fairly new to us. The surrounding area is alright, you’re in a decently sized city in Odessa and Midland is fairly close to which is a bit larger. My overalls experience at UTPB as been well and I look forward to see the turn around and improvements made to the university.
