5 College Student

Athletics: Love their pool and gym.

4 College Student

Facilities: the campus has a beautiful new gym which i used to frequent and plan to frequent again, a massive six floor (i believe) library with various computer labs and books needed for any and all classes. Campus activities are big, loud and extremely fun, student hangouts are everywhere really it is the greenest place in the entire dessert.

3 College Student

Guys & Girls: I didn't pay much attention I was an early college student so i was much younger than the other college students

College Student

Majors: i have not had one

2 College Student

Majors: Despite how far along your degree plan you already are when you transfer you must begin as a pre engineering student, no matter the field you want to enter. Then you must go pay a fee and declare your major. Once the major is declared you are set. My major was declared but somehow removed so declared again yet still i am presented as a pre engineering student. Its complicated.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: My university is very large, in a relatively small "big city" they like to think it is. It has a ridiculously wide variety of classes, all of which have equally high pricing. The professors aren't much to brag about especially in my field of study they are all foreigners as such rather difficult to understand. Class sizes are about as large as the campus it self holding hundreds of students and class styles are almost always the same boring lecture type. The campus it self is beautiful and the activities held there are sometimes the only thing holding the school together. The other students are kind and understand and tutorial services are greatly appreciated. This campus is rather expensive to someone like me but i suppose it is not un affordable.

3 College Student

Overall Experience: The school offers both graduate and undergradute opportunities for jobs, internships, work studies and more, alot of which can/may end up in a stable career however jumping from pure lecture into an internship is a trifle difficult. I have not yet encountered any employers recruiting on campus nor have i visited the career center as of yet but I will come back and let you know.

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: As an undergraduate student I have been complaining about needing better options toward getting a 24 hour open cafeteria here on campus, because students eat at all different times to fit into their school schedule.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The girls on campus are really pretty, and for the most part are really sweet, I can actually say the same for the guys as far as looks and being nice goes, everyone really doesnt mind helping out another. But at the same time, there isnt much diversity so people do clique up it seems through ethnic background...and that isnt the best feeling, but it happens.

College Junior

Health & Safety: I honestly have not heard one thing about sexual assault here on campus whether it happened to someone, or a program was taking place to raise awareness, i am not aware.

3 College Junior

Facilities: all of the athletic centers are top notch, the library is nice, the overrall exterior of the campus is beautiful, I really like the campus event held prior to exams, it's actually the best thing i've seen, the faculty gets together and makes a big midnight breakfast, and this past semester it actually resembled a rave. really cool.

5 College Junior

Academics: My major is multimedia Journalism and i can say that the course work is great, the workload isnt a problem, the only thing that isnt so attractive is the scholarship program doesnt seem to offer many scholarships at all for the Liberal Arts department.

3 College Junior

Academics: People like to study literally anywhere. the campus is beautiful and el paso is a sunny city so you often see people outside on the lawn laid out having picnics, while studying. tanning while studying. it actually looks like a movie scene in a cliche' film about college students. thats one thing i love about this school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I can say, that the professors here are one reason i will remain at the school. All that I have had have been very kind to me and very willing to work through any situation.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I dont see many employers recruiting on campus im not sure how bad that is. But i can say that a degree from this school, in my opinion, would still be of great value especially since I plan to attend school on this side of the country (west) anyway, where UTEP is more acknowledged.

2 College Junior

Diversity: I say it's bad because ...in my opinion there isnt true diversity. Most people who are not of Mexican descent are here on scholarship so they're athletes, other than that.......you get the point.

1 College Junior

Campus Dining: THERE IS NO CAFETERIA. honestly, it's sad. so much money goes into the student housing that i suppose they feel there is no need for an actual on campus cafeteria. AND The places that are open on campus, Pizza Hut, Starbucks, etc..these places close extremely early so you're forced to dine elsewhere off campus and although the on campus places are not far at all, its quite a bummer.

4 College Junior

Athletics: UTEP cares a lot about their athletes. More than anything.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: I love that Whataburger, Jack In the Box, Taco Bell, all of these places are literally right off campus, but it is kind of a bummer that student discounts dont apply, if they do, i've never heard of it. AND what's worse is that so many places exist off campus SOLELY BECAUSE THERE IS NO CAFETERIA ON CAMPUS. so the living expenses (food in this case) cause students to have little to no money.

3 College Junior

Nightlife: I think that El Paso lives a small town life, when really it's a huge city...so there's that.

2 College Junior

Scholarships: I'm sure it could be worse, but in no way is it great. There is literally one person there who is able to help me consistently and even still i get the run around.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: I'm not apart of Greek Life here but I have been around other schools so i know it could be better, but I assume it has a lot to do with the limited amount of diversity here at UTEP.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The Greek life is somewhat prevalent on campus, but nothing like you would see in bigger universities. Greeks are usually very nice and aren't stuck up.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Most of the girls on campus are attractive as well as involved in campus life. There's a lot of variety in terms of styles and interests that can appeal to anyone.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Personally, I prefer to go eat off-campus mainly because it's cheaper and there are more options. I don't mind having to walk a bit in order to get good food, even if it is fast food (McDonald's, Burger King, Taco Bell, Whataburger, etc). There are also some local places that are good on the students' wallets and offer good cuisine.

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.
