3 College Junior

Overall Experience: This school has it advantages and disadvantages. The application process was long and detailed. I did enjoyed the interview for the graduate program. It was a new experience and was happy to have gone through it. The professors were helpful and amiable. So far this is my fourth semester and have enjoyed all courses. They are challenging but very interesting.

Overall Experience: For the fall of this year, I will be enrolling the University of Texas of Rio Grande Valley, so far its been great. I've attended student orientation and have called to make sure my financial aid was processed along with other requisites. The university has offered me a great service and I have a positive feeling about it because of how the faculty, students, and professors handle everything with interest.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Though a great school, it is a small campus and it is very local. There's not much of the "college" atmosphere besides the classes. Definitely have learned a lot and met a lot of great people, but not what I had expected.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This was not my first or second or third choice. This was my last choice. I learned to love my school. It's close to home so i saveoney on an apartment or dorm i would have paid if i gone to another different school.

Overall Experience: They changed the tuition which makes it harder for me to attend school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: During the last school year being part of the the Greek life made a huge difference on the way that made me get more involve into school life and lead me to go and do something for a great organization like St. Jude Children Research hospital

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The over all experience I have had in this school is possibly the best I could have asked for. The staff is very helpful when it comes to any question you may have. They try their best to help you with any concern you may have. The professors are very knowledgable and make your experience as a student the best possible. I love this school because there are a lot of clubs in my department that one can enroll in to help you succeed in the real world when you graduate.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
