4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I study in the management department and overall it is a good department. Professors are helpful so long as you look for there help. They won't help much if you don't ask them to.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The tuition is reasonable and ultimately I would still choose this school to attend because UTSA would have required me to take out excessive loans.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This university in my opinion is great. I chose it because it was so close to my parents and family. It is unique because it is a great university and is much cheaper than the big school names like Baylor or UT. The quality of the education is great in my opinion and I would probably choose it all over again if I had to. Over the course of the school year I built relationships with students and professors and I feel very much at home.

Overall Experience: Overall my experience at The University of Texas-Rio Grande valley has been great.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have been attending college at the University of Texas Pan-American and i love it! I enjoy the time driving to school and learning and grasping the new ideas of other individuals I have met so far. I like that atmosphere and how you are setting foot into your own future and having the ability to be independent.

4 College Junior

Local Area: I love the atmostphere. There are a lot of things to do regarding different interests a person may have - day or night. It can actually be a major culture shock visiting here. One great thing is the shopping. I wouldn't agree too much on the safety though, it's kind of rough with violence in the area.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Boys and girls on campus tend to share the common interest of getting their studies done, but at the same time partying every night. It's rare for someone to be studying as much as they should. However, there are a lot of smart individuals. Also, those who are nice and great to talk too. It's easy to make friends.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My favorite experience so far was probably the Halloween event. I got to participate in though pre vet society where I met a lot of great people within my same major. I'm not so sure I would do it again because it wasn't my first school of choice to begin with. I still want to transfer and pursue animal science in a university that offers that degree.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: Students can receive average internship opportunities as any other university. The key is applying yourself all throughout college. I don't think my school is anything renowned or too recognized within the state. It's simply a place to acquire a degree and pursue better things in life.

2 College Junior

Overall Experience: I don't particularly like the education I'm receiving from my school. Courses are not taught as they should be and some professors are simply unqualified to teach the subject itself. I contestant lay had issues in the chemistry department and I didn't like how they were handled. Class availability isn't too great either as some of my required courses are not offered. Additionally, class sizes are way to big.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Our campus takes good care of its students. Multiple services are in place to help with that. I feel pretty safe while on campus knowing I have them in place.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greeks are a big deal at our school, we just don't have the greatest funding. Advertisement and social events are constantly happening every day. Non Greek students are apathetic to the atmosphere, but members represent true spirit.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics isn't too crazy of a topic at my school. It's like any other. The biggest sport we have is probably basketball or baseball.

3 College Junior

Party Scene: Generally there aren't too many crazy parties around, but when they do arise, they're pretty decent. They stay in control and are usually thrown by campus organizations. They typically take place some place off campus and do help social reinforcements. The great thing about them is that they don't turnout to be too many people, just the right amount.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are numerous places off campus that are nearby to eat. They're mostly chain and fast food, but still good in cost and quality. The great thing about them is that most will provide discounts if asked. I'd probably recommend a place called Siempre Natural. It's fairly new here, but it's something healthy and a change from subway. On another note, Khan's Grill is probably the place to eat at. It's a lot of food, but for a great price.

2 College Junior

Administration: Strictness is pretty intense on our campus, especially regarding parking violations. The police issue tickets for almost everything and I've constantly had trouble with them year round. Recently, I had problems getting my parking ticker that never came in the mail. I got frustrated because they made me pay for a whole new one. I always hear about campus police, but rarely see them doing anything else. They focus on traffic and students riding on bikes mostly. I will say that there are emergency posts in place though, so that's good.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: I think the food and dining options are more than enough. There's different food to choose from and if a student is still not satisfied, they can settle for something a little more familiar from the C-store. The union is actually pretty great because that's where most people go to kill time and just hangout. My advice for saving money would be to take your own drink from home and ask for lots of free chips from ponchos! The only complaint I have is maybe seat availability. Food is a popular interest shared by mainly everybody on campus.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: The actual financial aid process at my school can be a real difficulty depending on the day or staff. I think a big issue is capacity - there are simply too many students and it can be frustrating when you're looking to receive help for school. With so many students enrolled, the financial aid office is always busy. My tips for applying would be to start early and get paperwork organized. Don't wait until last minute because it becomes extremely stressful. Another thing to take into consideration is apply for as many scholarships as possible.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Overall, it's a pretty decent atmosphere for its cost. There are plenty of social gatherings and club affiliations to join and learn more about. The union is pretty cool too since there's a variety of food to choose from as well as a game room located upstairs. As far as things I don't like is the extra cost of amenities I don't regularly use. For instance, the recreation center and health services. Although, I can't complain because they're nice to have around when wanted/needed. My school is great in general.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: There are a lot of activities to participate in, but me, someone who has been living in the area for her whole life, you get bored. There are limited activities for students.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys on campus are fairly attractive. Every once in a while there will be a guy who catches your eye and you'll swoon over him.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Walking around campus, I feel safe. You always bump into people you know or easily make friends so you're never alone.

3 College Student

Scholarships: try to get as much aid as possible and don't give up when you get a negative response.
