University of Texas - Tyler Reviews
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.
I am currently in the nursing program at UTT. I think the campus is a great little university for the education of a big college without the overwhelming feeling of noting know thousands of students. The nursing program is the top of the state of Texas! Excellent professors who care about our education and future. Very competitive program as well, but very much worth the hardwork that comes with a BSN.
I transferred to the University of Texas at Tyler after I finished my basics and have loved every second of it here! The atmosphere of the school is very peaceful. As a current Nursing student in the Bachelors program, I could not ask for better professors to be teaching. They really want us to succeed and do everything they can to help get us where we want to be. I know that when I graduate I will be the utmost prepared for my future career as an RN. UT Tyler encourages students to push themselves, but also their staff is willing to aide the students in anyway they need to be successful.
