4 College Sophomore

Athletics: There is an abundance of school spirit

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The privacy you have living outside of the dorms is worth a couple hundred dollars.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Administration seems more concerned about a student having their parking permit than underage drinking.

College Sophomore

Party Scene: I am not involved in the party scene, therefore I cannot rate it.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The UTEP staff in the office of scholarships are very kind and informative. This allowed for me to know which options I had.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: The food options that are currently available are good, but many students wish that there were more options to choose from.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: New dorms are being built, and many people are looking forward to it. The current dorms are clean and safe, but more students are in need of housing.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: You have to look pretty hard to find a quality place for a decent price.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There could be more options and they could be more affordable.

4 College Senior

Administration: I have never had any issues.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: I used to hear of much more parties a couple of years back, not so much anymore.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Instead of dealing with the financial aid office face-to-face and in order to avoid waiting in the long lines, I will call whenever possible and fax whatever I can.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: There could be more healthier and affordable places to eat that stay open longer. Most of the places close around 3pm and most of my classes are after 3:30pm.

College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus and never have.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The buildings are nice from the outside but some of them look horrible when you walk in to the building.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: It's bad because I wanted to major in computer information systems but the college has not put any effort in making it one of the best, considering that tech jobs are and will be on high demand.

1 College Freshman

Overall Experience: A degree from this university would not be worth it for me, which is why I will be transferring to another university.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: It's cheaper than the union or any other place in school where they sell food.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Doing it before the deadline is the smart thing to do.

2 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The administration is in place to enforce policy at the student's expense.

1 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I was sent to a credit union that, I later discovered, stop providing student loans six months previously. It resulted in extremely delayed funding.

1 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: All the food venues are overpriced and average to very bad.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I am really happy at UTEP because it has a friendly environment, the professors/staff are very willing to help you out whenever you need them. There are also plenty of extra curricular activities to chose from as well as volunteering opportunities that are always good to participate and include in your resume.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Student life is really good; there are a bunch of options to have fun with friends like basketball and football games as well as art exhibitions and Minerpalooza. The Rec Center is very well-equipped and is relatively new, having been remodeled recently.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: There and many clubs and organizations to join at campus, but sports especially football and basketball are usually the main event for campus life. The facilities here are great for members and non members and have a variety of options to go out and enjoy.

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.
