3 College Junior

3 College Sophomore

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

4 College Junior

Academics: My major could be common, but is very interesting, being a future educators gets me excited. My campus have a lot of resources to help us prepare for the future career, but at the same time there are lots of struggles, every time they are changing the rules and they are doing things harder and harder, so it takes more time for us to prepare well.

3 College Freshman

Academics: academic wise, i do not know much about it. The registration process is very fast and simple. the workload is average, depending on the student and what and how many classes they are taking.

UTEP adds bricks to its towering academic structure with every opportunity the University provides students, building upon an already solid foundation. Science and engineering have been UTEP’s core. Currently, UTEP is constructing a new health sciences building, and a chemistry and computer science building is also in the works. Professors at the University are very open to communication with students. Many of the professors build good relationships with students that show dedication and interest in classes and studies. It is not unusual to see students walking with professors throughout campus. Professors also have a tendency to remember faces long after a couple of semesters.

The workload at UTEP is going to be determined by the student’s time management skills. Working students with a full schedule at school do face a challenge, though. However, with completion of assignments before due dates, there is only room for success. UTEP offers reasonable hours for courses, with both morning and evening classes available. Registering for them is based on a first-come, first-served basis. Most professors are open to letting in a few extra students if classes are at maximum capacity. Students are offered great opportunities; however, it is the responsibility of the student that will determine the outcome.
