Overall Experience: UTEP can be a great university towards future students who know what they want to do in the future. I unfortunately have had a bad experience with advisors claiming to help me when in fact, they shifted me off toward another direction. My favorite experiences have been engaging in an academic organization called the National Society of Leadership and Success where every member was able to help guide me into believing in myself and making the rest of my college experience successful. What makes UTEP unique is the cultural experience of international students and the landscape that UTEP has built on campus. International students make great friends and learning from one student to another is wonderful experience. The Centennial Plaza built on campus shows what UTEP as a university is. There are plenty of spaces to read and rest while communicating with other students.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Students are really involved in athletics especially with football and basketball. The gym is one of the best gyms in El Paso because of how clean they keep everything.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Everyone is welcoming but needs more variety. Professors range from not caring about class lecture to others that are passionate and want the students to succeed. There are more good professors than bad, but depends on the students' preference of teaching and curriculum.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: UTEP takes the Health and Safety of their students very serious

4 College Junior

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: UTEP makes a great effort at making their degrees valued by companies around the country

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek Life at the university isn't really relevant, you rarely hear about them and they don't make much of an effort to be known by students.

2 College Junior

Athletics: The University of Texas at El Paso football is known for one thing and one thing only, they are pretty bad, this makes the students lack the motivation to support other varsity teams even when they are having a good season.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The University of Texas at El Paso offers a pretty unique experiences when talking about student and teacher diversity, you encounter many people from all over the globe all willing to communicate and participate in all types of activities. I would definitely choose UTEP again if I had to, since been here makes me feel like I am at the right place, like home.

2 College Senior

Athletics: Athletics aren't a big part of our school. People try to make them important, but our teams are bad. Fan support is pretty good due to our city not having a lot to do.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: It doesn't have a "university"feel to it. Events are poorly promoted and in turn, student participation is quite low.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: No incidents have ever happened on campus

3 College Student

Overall Experience: UTEP is a decent school, it is perfect for those simply seeking a degree, however it truly does not have the "college experience" due to the fact that it is a commuter school, almost nothing interesting happens on campus

5 College Student

Overall Experience: The career center is constantly helping students, whether it be preparing for an interview, building a resume, or even offering career advice. The career center helps students find prospective jobs, and careers, on and off campus

4 College Student

Campus Housing: The new campus housing doesn't even seem like campus housing, but a hotel

3 College Student

Greek Life: The Greek life here on campus is very low-key

4 College Student

Athletics: The Recreational Center for students is top-notch, and one of the best of most universities I have seen

3 College Student

Overall Experience: This is a good school if all you want is a degree, if you really want to have the college experience, then I suggest you enroll in another univeristy

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.
