Overall Experience: Go Vaqueros! Go Vaqueros!

I love my school and enjoy the quality of students, and staff at our campus. There is a variety of people, cultures, and it brings a homey feel to the overall campus. There is countless clubs and activities to join and attend. School spit is shared and felt. The classes offered are equipped with the best professors, and learning experience. UTRGV stands along with its students, assuring we excel in everything we do.

Overall Experience: Each department and College on Campus offer a great opportunity of Jobs and Internships. most students whom apply are accepted and recommended to local businesses and centers on and off campus.

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. everyone is to themselves and focused on their education. there is a wide variety of councilors and administrative help, including programs for victims if in due case something happens.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professor follow a certain scale of quality to me based on how effective they can transfer new knowledge to me. I notice the little details, like how well dressed a teacher comes into early morning classes, and how he handles a silent class, that kind of stuff. I have had excellent teachers that are masters at their craft and teachers that just plain dont give a damn. The class is definitely a lurking variable when it comes to how effectively a teacher can get the program going. I have seen alot of different class styles including the "there is no homeworks" class and all have been satisfying. The quality of the course depends on the teachers ability to keep up a good pace in the classroom setting. It can't be too fast where student go bald from stress or too slow where the impatient want it over. I've had fast and slow classes but i can manage. Classes have been risky to take and some have been easy, i roll with the punches.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There are alot of opportunities when it comes to working around campus, UTRGV is like a "college central" surrounded by bussinesses and restaurants, all walking distance. Talk to people, contact flyers and what not, if you really care about going into the workforce its not a hard thig to achieve at campus. Finding the jobs is not hard, finding the time is the problem.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I say it okay because crimes have been happening at a steady rate. Nobody has been killed or anything but one guy did get arrested for groping an innocent bystander (female), he got filed for sexual assault charges and eventually kicked off campus. Whether he was a student at UTRGV or not was hidden, the guy was caught within a day or so. There has been students stealing golf carts with their pickups, but they too got caught and expelled. Theres always something different going on and usually its sudden. The school has an automated system that text students about current events like: "Caution a suspicious looking hispanic male wearing a hoodie has been walking around campus at night", and the other incidents. Theres stations all around campus so you can contact the police with an emergency button, but im unaware of their validity. I feel safe walking around campus, but i am a male, i take class in broad daylight, and i usually walk in a group, so my response is clearly biased.

Athletics: Im in pep band so i see the basketball teams and the volleyball teams go against other schools on a weekly basis for free hehehe. We bring the spirit because we get really loud..really loud. The athletes work great as a team and often encourage their peers (like the ones of the benches) to do their best. We definitely have fan support, like this one gentleman that has been going to every game famous for his leather vest and sport signs that he has collected. Im involved in every game, but usually the student body doesnt care about the games unless we play against a rival school. The athletic scene gets alot of support from the school, and even though we're not the best its all about the fun.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: There is alot of diversity. Much more than i expected really. People keep to themselves in college and its almost like a "every man for himself" type of deal, but i like it that way. Teachers go along the spectrum when it comes to preparation, but so far i haven't failed so that keeps me motivated. This school is not a breeze, you have to be on alert status and be aware of everything like online assignments and extra credit— stuff like that. College gets hectic sometimes but roll with the punches, make friends, avoid surprises and you'll come out in no time.

Health & Safety: Security at campus is great I have never had issues with any sexual harassment issues or discrimination from other students. There is always someone outside of campus supervising the parking lot and that has always made me feel safe about my school.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Professors are very helpful and care about your success. I have had the great pleasure of having a diverse variety of instructors that have thought me a lot based on their own personal experiences in the field of business. It is great to have instructors that have been active in the business professional industry, as they are able to influence in you good ideas, information, and inspire ethical leadership skills.

Campus Housing: I never lived in a dorm, but from friends that did they said it was very calm and peaceful.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: Greek life is okay they are always outside selling really good stuff, sponsoring community events, passing out fliers, and simply passing on the word about campus news. I was never involved in one, though I did receive invitations to many business honor societies, it was to difficult for me to join working full-time and attending school full-time.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: There is a blog that communicates to us up to date news about UTRGV sports, but I never really got involved or paid much attention to the blog. I was always so busy with school homework and assignments to have leisure time to even attend a game or keep up with the athlete stats.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: 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.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel like it is a very fair experience. SO far i have had no trouble in the education aspect of the campus. I have enjoyed all my classes and thought well of all my professors.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel like my program is well off and there seems to be a good outlook on my future career.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel like security is good on campus, they're a variety of emergency call stops. Also the campus has a lot of groups and meeting for victims of sexual abuse and violence.

2 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life has a very low impact on college life. I know we do have a rush week but it is not anything like the movies. It seems like a pretty calm atmosphere. There aren't too many greek clubs and there isn't on campus greek houses. They pretty much blend in with all the other school clubs.

2 College Junior

Athletics: My school does not have a football team so a large part of the advertising for sporting events goes to the basketball team. Although they constantly send out emails to the students during the season, i have personally never attended a game and have never really felt much hype for it on the students side.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: 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.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Most of the courses and profferers at this school are good , the courses help you understand the world around you.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel when I graduate from here my degree will help me get a great job , especially if i communicate with alumni who have already got there jobs.
