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.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The only popular sport to watch is basketball. Not enough students are involved in intramurals though.

3 College Freshman

Parking: The prices aren't bad. The remote parking says it all in the name though, since the shuttle system forces students to use it.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I wish prices were more student friendly. After all, they do thrive off college students.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: I have always been on the side of feeling "left out" but I do know that the availability is very real for all ages.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I don't even live on campus.

2 College Freshman

Computers: There is constant disconnection and it can be very irritating. You also need to know where to get tech support because the library tech people are no more practiced than the average college student.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I was not completely informed within a single visit. I received a scholarship I was unaware of, which is really cool but the lack of information is wearisome.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are very little options from what I have seen.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The greek life on campus is not very huge.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I have never used these services. My response is from what I have witnessed.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Much of the students are from here, such as myself, which takes away from college experience because everyone simply drives back home to mom and dad after the school day. I want more diversity.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is a big determining factor for me simply because I really want to enjoy college to the fullest.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: i didn't get any anyway

2 College Freshman

Majors: Grades are given away and A's don't even have to be earned.

1 College Freshman

Majors: Professors are apathetic towards you and your classmates.

apathy is the atmosphere and it is killer

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Great rec center, we need more support for teams

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Greek, vegan, vegetarian, and all sorts of ethnic food- its my favorite part of college

3 College Freshman

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.
