Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Outside from all of the fun that's had on campus, UTEP has a good law enforcement system to prevent the fun from getting out of hand. With a police station located on campus, students can be sure that there will always be some sort of law official around the area. Campus police are constantly patrolling in and around campus day and night, either by vehicles, bicycles, or mopeds. Students in the surrounding area do not have to worry about who lurks around the corner or if there is some sort of warning about creeps. Police will respond to any accident—pronto. Above all that, campus police will send out mass e-mails or text messages alerting students if any incidents have occurred within or around campus. Emergency numbers and phones are placed throughout campus, with flashing blue lights that provide a beacon of safety for anyone in trouble.

The University also offers health support, providing students health services at a cheap price. With medical costs being so high in the "real world," students can enjoy a brief period of low-cost doctor visits and medical prescriptions. However, students should not expect to have family or friends also benefit from this deal. UTEP is very observant and careful with patients. Procedures must be taken to show proof that the student is in need of care. Overall, though, the health services staff at UTEP has a very friendly crew ready to serve students.
