UTRGV has come a lone way. I started here when the school was UTPA and have seen many changes throughout the years mainly for the better. The school has really grown and improvements to technology, buildings, and more fun events have been added. I can honestly say I enjoyed my college experience here at UTRGV!
My experience at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley was life changing. I was able to learn from outstanding professors and was able to become the first member of my family to graduate with a bachelor's degree in English. Now, I want the opportunity to further my education with a Master's degree to eventually teach and empower students at a higher level. There isn't much to be improved in the school besides the availability of scholarships for graduate students.
