4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I like this school because it's a great school. They care about their students and faculty. The professors go out of their way to help students succeed. The only downfall is the price of tuition is pretty expensive.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: the campus was perfect,the teachers,and the classrooms, the building i loved everything from my school.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Living between two different cultures makes you different from the rest of your country. The Mexican-American mixture at UTEP, plus the students and professors from all over the world it's what makes my school special. Dealing with living in one country, and studying in another, converts students into versatile persons in a sense of respecting different ideas from different people, as well as transportation and finances. This university located at the border of Mexico and the U.S. changes a student's vision. It let's a person draw the purpose of their effort while studying, to become the person you want to be, but it always reminds a person's roots.

That's what makes a Miner, at UTEP.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Graduating and getting ready for a new change of environment is nerveracking, but once you get your feet wet you understand what is needed to be done to achieve your goals. College is a new experience, and can be what you make out of it.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: So far it's been okay. Advising and registration are some of the hardest things to do here. Best part about it is the campus.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Friendly people and some classes are really easy, other you have to study a little harder but all is worth at the end.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The staff has always been extremely helpful. Personally, I went through some things in my last semester at UTEP that made me divide my focus but the teachers always helped keep me on track.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: UTEP provides a great environment to grow as a student from all aspects. It ranks among the best in social mobility and the classes and professors all strive to make sure the university is the best it can possibly be.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school is great, however it has many key problems. Such as the lack of disciple of students because the professors don't enforce or just pass students who are undeserving. I believe this school needs to be more strict .

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of the teachers take interest in each individual student for their future success

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My overall experiencie at UTEP, have been incredible. Faculty and staff really help you with everything you need. A great college in my opinion.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the weather, and how the school is set up. The professors are always ready and the people is very nice.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I really appreciate my university as it provides a great atmosphere for people who want to learn more to not only help themselves but others as well. It offers plentiful resources to the students. However one thing that I wish could be improved is the number of research assistant lab positions avaliable to students. I understand it is a competitive field but a lot of students are left without the opportunities to gain research experience. Also, I would like if they offered more support when applying to graduate school as that is the hardest part of the whole college experience. Regardless of some these problems, I enjoy my time spent gaining a better education at my university.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have had an amazing experience at UTEP with both the students and professors. I feel like I am being challenged to overall lead me to success in my career goals. I enjoyed the positive vibe that this campus has for its students and faculty. I enjoyed the uniqueness of the buildings and the history behind their design. I enjoyed their traditions they have had for years and how they continue to keep them alive and exciting for each coming generation. I would absolutely recommend UTEP since it has brought many great valuable experiences.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The University of Texas at El Paso is a great university that is accompanied by an ideal educational environment. It consists of a very welcoming as well as prideful student body. Regardless of what individuals you look at, they are all dedicated to their perspective fields and what nothing, but to acquire their major and contribute to the work force. Something that is particularly enticing are all of the athletic opportunities within the university. Whether you're into football, basketball, soccer, etc., the University of Texas at El Paso has extremely energetic and enticing games that will even make the most reclusive of attendees feel the rush of the crowd. Furthermore, some of the particularly memorable experiences would have to be some of the festivals that are held on campus grounds such as MinerPalooza and the university's recent centennial celebration. The fact that all of these celebrations are accompanied and influenced by authentic Hispanic heritage makes the celebrations seem more unique and something that could only be experienced at the University of Texas at El Paso. If given the option to do it all over again, more than likely, I would not.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My favorite experiences in my first year of college would be that I have met knew people from different cultures and places.

I think that having students from other countries and being a school were diversity is embraced is what makes my school unique, however, I would not choose my school again because it is in my hometown and I would like to experience college in other places where I didnt spend 18 years of education.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: If I could do it all over again, I would definitely choose this school. My first year has been great! The teachers were so helpful and wanted me to succeed. I struggled in some of my courses, but the fact that the professors saw that I (along with other people) needed help, they reached out and offered opportunities for us. Other than that, the people and services on campus are terrific and every building is easy to reach. The only thing that I would complain about are the food services. I wish that there were more healthy options, because it was hard to find.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: Being at UTEP for 3 years has given me the best leadership experiences I could have asked for. I have been involved in Alpha Xi Delta Women's Fraternity, National Society of Leadership and Success, Order of Omega Greek Honor Society, have taught 2 separate classes for incoming freshman- all of these have honed in my greatest leadership skills.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Provides many opportunities for research.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: UTEP is University that has earned Tier 1 recognization, and is seeking to not become an exclusive college. A vast majority of the population is Mexica, and the school offer a vast array of programs. Including a Multidisciplinary Studies program. However, I believe the school could gain more recognization by offering a Library Science Program.

2 College Senior

Overall Experience: The red tape is horrible

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: It could be better, and have more opportunities for every student to be involved. Not many friends.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
