El Paso Reviews

As the first born child from two immigrant parents, El Paso hasn't provided my family and I many opportunities to grow. I have been able to find great jobs with ladder system for room to grow. El Paso has also provided my siblings and I with higher education, both at the community level and university. What I like about my city is the Spanish culture. Since we have Ciudad Juarez, México as our neighboor city we have a very high Spanish culture. Spanish is just as important as the English language here in El Paso. What I would like to see in the future of El Paso is to see more buisnesss come to the sun city. More jobs for my community would also be beneficial. Finally our community and culture unfortunately is not so healthy do to the Spanish recipes. I am an advocate for my community, the underserved city of El Paso. It is my objective to graduate as a doctor of physical therapy to provide my services to this great city and move health forward!
Review El Paso
El Paso is sunshine-filled, and driveable. There's a fairly wide variety of restaurants all over town, and a concentration of museums, galleries, cafés & bars downtown. The weather is a boon to year-round tennis players, golfers, runners and cyclists. Hikers, runners and cyclists enjoy the trek up Transmountain Road, over the Franklin Mountains in the middle of El Paso. Vineyards are located on the Westside of the mountain, and they offer tastings, a nice way to cap off a busy week! The myriad of people from all over the world who have passed through El Paso have left their mark on the food, music and community.
El Paso represents opportunity– opportunity to bring together students, faculty, staff and community members in order to make Arkansas Tech University and Russellville better. We can leave a lasting footprint on Russellville by revisioning the El Paso corridor, but we need your help!

Whether it’s recreation spaces, restaurants, housing and offices or shops – we need to hear your vision and your dream on the future of El Paso
