3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It does its part as a university

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: You really have to put your own effort to find schoolarships outside from school, the ones they offer are very seletive and even though you have the qualifications its hard foryou to get the scholarship

Health & Safety: The health center is out of my knowledge because I've never been. But safety is taken seriously on campus, especially during events. The rules are enforced and the school officers work along with city police to maintain a safe environment.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The Sun Bowl Stadium and Don Haskins Center are really nice facilities. The Sun Bowl stadium could use a few improvements for comfort, but it's not a serious issue. A new screen and scoreboard were added to the Sun Bowl which look great along with the turf. The floor of the Don Haskins has a great design and the two added screen look great and are of high quality as well.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Going out to nightclubs or bars are not really the greatest experiences. But there are few nice hookah lounges and a club called the Lowbrow that features concerts and most are free, best part it's a block away from campus

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are many options off campus such as: fast food, local, and sometimes food trucks. Many good options are walking distance, or you can take a campus shuttle to most locations. However, many really good spots on mesa can get a bit far and no longer are walking distance unless you have time to kill. The food is great and affordable, many options of different ethnic within the UTEP radius of a mile or so.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The aid is easy to handle, but there are long waiting times at the financial aid office. Sometimes they might say one thing and you check your status and it's quite the opposite. I am still trying to figure out what is the issue, yet no real answers from the financial aid office.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food is okay, there is not much variety in the Union building. Although there are more options in the Natural gas building that have a better value such as Miners grill. For a quick bite I'd rather go to Taco Bell or McDonald's because a "snack" is overpriced. If you want to be healthy and east on campus everyday, then expect to spend no less than $9 each day if you want a fresh salad. You could get a packaged salad for about $6 or $7, but might not be as "fresh". The best thing to do is to bring your lunch if you don't want to spend as much money.Coffee pricing is normal to the "outside world", The two Starbucks are simple like any other location. However, I recommend investing in a mug from Einstein's bro's coffee for $4 and 99 cents for each refill if you need your morning fix.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: There are only 2 Black Greeks on campus, so much for diversity

4 College Freshman

Local Area: There is a lot more to do in this part of the town.

4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Everyone is pretty friendly for the most part

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: The Greek Life at UTEP is very involved with campus life. The members of every sorority and fraternity is very friendly and helpful when asked questions about their organization. Some entry requirements are present, which can make it somewhat difficult, but other than than, it is very pleasant.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Off campus dining is just as affordable as the options on campus, but there is much more a variety available for everyone to enjoy.

3 College Freshman

Administration: Administration is strict in areas that this type of attention is needed, such as anything involving drugs or anything that could compromise any of the students. In areas that do not involve the compromising the student body, the strictness is more lenient and allows students to feel free to impact the university for the better by joining organizations.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process is great and goes by smoothly for students applying for financial aid, whether it be loans, grants or scholarships.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Some places such as Einstein Bros. and the Natural Gas Conservation Center have great options for every student. However, places such as Jazzman's cafe in the library does not have great quality food and can be a bit on the expensive side considering the other options available.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The staff are extremely friendly and make me feel at home.

2 College Freshman

Scholarships: I had to keep returning to the office because they would not move on with the process.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: If I eat at school, I choose Chick-fil-a every time.

1 College Freshman

Party Scene: N/A because UTEP is lame af

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Some places are quite the hike away from campus or are a bit pricey. Overall pretty good assortment. NO STUDENT DISCOUNTS ANYWHERE and hardly ANY military discounts either

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: No one who works with financial aid understands financial aid or how to explain it. Extremely tedious especially for Military dependents

1 College Freshman

Campus Food: One true on campus eating site and it's average and below on taste and nutrition with prices of something with twice the quality.

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Expensive for such poor and very limited housing options

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.
