1 College Junior

Transportation: They have buses that go all over the school but they are slow and it takes forever to get anywhere

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: Its walking distance from many places to eat, and many places to go out at night.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs are not bad at UTEP.

4 College Junior

Majors: I was a fairly smooth process. there was no challenges or difficulties. The most important criteria for admission was you academic history.

1 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The local atmosphere of El Paso Texas is terrible.. There is nothing to do.

1 College Junior

Weather: Weather tremendously affects my college experience. If it is windy or rains or when it is cold, o one leaves their home.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: I have no idea what goes down with Greek life

3 College Sophomore

Academics: There's a lot of places where you can go and study, and also study rooms available.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: Many of us living on the far east side, about 50 minutes away from campus have to rely on going to school the least times as possible because of the far drive.

College Sophomore

Drug Safety: I'm only on campus two day for a few hours I don't really know what happens there.

College Sophomore

Majors: I've never gotten an internship

2 College Sophomore

Weather: El Paso is know for it's bipolar weather, in the morning you can wake up to 75 degree weather full sunshine, and that same day 4 hours later it could start hailing, you just never know.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I think the fact that UTEP is mostly a commuter school sports aren't such a big deal because most of us don't have enough time, or the drive to UTEP is to far.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I DON'T LIVE ON CAMPUS

2 College Sophomore

Nightlife: I don't live near campus, so I really don't know what goes down, but there's not much stuff to do so it's not the best.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: It's the closest parking area relatively speaking, since they are trying to make UTEP a "walking campus" meaning no parking spaces inside the campus whats so ever, but the pricing is ridiculously high, and I heard the price will be even higher next semester and that is just ridiculous to me. Everyone is always driving way too fast in there I'm surprised there hasn't been any crashes or people ran over yet.

2 College Student

Off-Campus Dining: There is not many places to dine off campus that is within a reasonable distance. Also, most places do not offer student discounts.

3 College Student

Campus Strictness: The school is not very strict with their own rules. They usually don't enforce them until after there is a big violation, just to remind other students that they are still in place.

3 College Student

Transportation: It's not too bad. The only inconvenience of using school shuttles is that they don't always arrive on time and they are always usually packed.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.
