UTRGV is still adapting to the recent transition changes that have been made, but I strongly believe that it has the potential to continue to improve and grow. Vacker's 15 million donation to the college will definitely help the business department upgrade the quality of education and perhaps open up new programs in the field of business. Overall, my experience at UTRGV was good and I am looking forward to Grad school.

I feel like my university is 3 out of five stars. This has partly to do with it being a local university. Most people that attend are from the area so it kind of feels like high school again in that aspect. There really isn't much diversity. I, personally, feel like i am not receiving the same "college experience" o would have if i had left to an out of town, much larger university. I feel like everyone just goes to their classes then leaves home. Their isn't much sense of a community.
