This university has an amazing range of professors who care and make your learning experience fun. They genuinely want to see you succeed in the future. The campus is beautiful and recently a mini park was added to the front of campus to give as much relaxation space as possible to students, not to mention an awesome scenery. The campus has many engaging activities for the students to connect with future bosses and gives insight into how the job and everything will work when you graduate. Overall my experience here has been unforgettable!

It has such a lovely community! It’s not too big, but not too small. The city is also filled with plenty of stuff to do. The staff is amazing and will try their absolute best to make sure you are taken care of. The professors are great at what they do. Overall, I’ve had great experiences. The people are nice, the campus is beautiful, their programs are great—I love it.
This is a great school overall! The campus is scenic, there are plenty of resources for students on campus to help with job searches, tutoring, etc. UT Tyler is just big enough to feel like a university, but still small enough, in size and in enrollment count, for you to feel like an individual rather than a number. This goes for your interactions with the professors as well. They see your face every day and learn your name. It is very easy to build a strong professional relationship with your professors should you desire to. The school is growing and we need more parking, it makes no sense to pay as much as you do for a decal and then have to park down the street to get to class. We also need more advisors for certain majors, mine included. Those are my only critiques.
