4 College Student

Guys & Girls: Most of the time the guys and girls at the campus are very friendly and helpful at times and other times the don't care.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Housing: Its very hard to obtain a dorm or an apartment near the college. There is also the dilemma of the price being so high you need a scholarship to cover the cost. The cross walks from and the to the housing developments are dangerous at times.

3 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There are mostly fast food restaurants and few good dining restaurants farther from the campus. I have not experienced any student discounts however.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: I have not personally witnessed anything illegal going on. I can say that the parking situation is very strict though.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: There are not really any difficulties to get into any of my two majors, but it is totally important to be dedicated and really creative. My professors have been really helpful, but strict as well. They easily can tell if you are meant for this program or not.

4 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I do enjoy my program, because they are different but work with the same creativity. Here in UTEP there are a lot of facilities for art majors, as well as for communication students. Internships opportunities are everywhere in this campus. However, professors help you to get in touch with different agencies or programs that will help you to increase your resume. Also, there are different organizations in and outside campus that are available for art and communication majors.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: Everything is really close to UTEP. That's a really good thing. If you want to do something fun after a stress out test, the nest side of the street there are a lot of places to go to.

2 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I really hate dealing with my financial aid at school. It is the worst, I do always have a problems a month before school classes begin. I felt stressed because the last minute I have to go the office, making calls and everything. It is really tedious.

3 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: There has no been that kind of problems in school. Just a few lack of safety escort service

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: We have a lot of diversity in this school. Merely, because it is connected between the border of Mexico and U.S.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: There has been a lot of changes during this past years around campus. a lot of improvement.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: They have more facilities than any other student

Recent Alumnus

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: I live far away from school, but from friends that live near the campus, those are the ratings

Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: I have not been on a campus housing from my school

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: It's okay, because some professors are really good and professional, while there are other professors that doesn't seem to care about their student or even their classes.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: There are great opportunities for undergrads, but not enough for graduate students.

3 College Junior

Majors: The professors are nice and helpful, but the program itself needs work.

3 College Junior

Majors: Depending on what program on campus you are in, time commitment isn't too bad, and pay is at least $1 over the minimum wage.

2 College Junior

Campus Dining: There needs to be more options, and hours should be longer for students who eat late.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Not many problems with sexual assaults or campus crime incidents.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The gym is very nice, as is the new bio-sciences, computer science, and engineering buildings. Some older buildings need more work.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There's a little of good and bad, but mostly average.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: I wouldn't say there are too many issues with campus strictness.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Nothing special, as far as I know.

The University of Texas at El Paso provides students with a period of time that they can look back on fondly, like shuffling through an album of memories. By the end of their stay, students think of the school as a part of their family. Resources are available in droves to keep students on their feet and motivated. As far as events, UTEP promotes itself very efficiently. Minerpalooza is an event hosted on campus to promote the season-opener game for the football season. This event is similar to a fair, and many students and residents of the city attend every year.

As far as preparing students for achieving their goals, UTEP opens doors. Internships are available through school programs or advertised to give students a broader view. Opportunities are presented for programs outside of El Paso, giving students the chance to step outside the front door. The University prepares students to be first-rate versions of themselves, with a staff dedicated to the school’s vision of growing and changing for the best. The students may be diverse, but everyone seems to smile and be very approachable.
