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.

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.

Party Scene: For a straightedge like me, there's options, which is a good thing.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: It's not necessarily bad, but you really have to look to find the good stuff.

4 College Junior

Administration: This wouldn't be a Tier-1 School if it wasn't pretty strict, but it works for what's needed.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The food isn't bad, but it's priced as if we were in a major league stadium or something.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: Scholarships are kind of few and far between, but when they come up, it's easy to get them when they are available.

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.

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

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.
