University of Texas - Rio Grande Valley Reviews
I love UTRGV because it's so close to my own house. If you're looking for a college that'll ensure you get your basics done and career into Engineering/Nursing, then this school is the one! The people I've met at UTRGV aren't the best individuals, but the ones that stick around in your life are the real treasure here. The culture here is very friendly and despite me working part-time here, all my 'customers' are nice and friendly and very patient with New comers! The teachers you meet show that they actually put genuine thought and belief into the subject that they teach, unlike most Highschools you recently get out of. The people you meet with when assigned for groups actually care about their grade, so I doubt you'll find much slackers trying to sink the group down by not contributing. It's a small college though, but I'm okay with it!
The students of University of Texas have witnessed an evolution. UTPA, the former university in Edinburg, as well as UTB, the former university in Brownsville, have merged to become one large university that not only forms part of the UT system, but that now (and I say this proudly!) has a medical school. The rewards have been great, but they have taken a toll on us. As students, we have bore the disorganization at the registrars. New requirements have plagued our degree plans, and it has been a pain to become part of the "legacy". Buildings have been demolished to make way for newer ones, and students must walk across large expanses to arrive to class. Despite it all, I must admit that the university will be great. Unfortunately, I will no longer be there to bear witness!
Overall I believe this university truly has it all. From the great and friendly community to the understanding and helpful teachers and even the amazing food. This school is very united and there's always something going on. The students attending here are truly creative and come up with new things to help engage students into new activities everyday more and more. I have got to mention one of my favorite activities is karaoke during lunch, there is truly so much hidden talent here. I also love how there is this one student who rides his bike every week carrying a dry erase board and it says a motivational caption to keep the students going. He goes all around campus for hours shouting the quote and giving students hope. Some of the captions are, "spread love not hate" "you can do it, don't give now" It's so heart warming how students that don't even know me care about me and care about others. This always puts a smile in my face. I love UTRGV!
