What is your overall opinion of this school?

The students are always looking for a party. Just like in high school every one has their clicks when it comes to hanging out. Teachers do try to help as much as they can. The office staff can be pretty annoying at time they never help you enough or they don' t know. They seem to all always be on a different page. There are a lot of services as far as to help you succeed in school it just might take time for you to find how you learn best. Dorm room life is okay at least you can have your own room to your self. The buildings are okay to live in and there are always cool activities to do.

it is a lot of fun and all the benches and friendly people keep me from getting stressed. Although the extra curricular activities arent much they do seem to have some really pumped participants. teachers are always helpful and dedicate time to helping their students learn.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall it is a fairly small and close knit university. Not to mention the culture here is extraordinary. When I first arrived I had a huge culture shock! There are also lots of on campus events; there's bound to be a few you will enjoy. Teachers are friendly and usually available and always understanding. The overall look of the campus is older and outdated compared to my last university, but its still a great university nonetheless. They also have excellent housing options (cost is another story). Their prices are considerably cheap compared to most colleges, but to someone poor like me it doesn't make much of a difference, ha"

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University has a very nice outdoors campus, but people don't get involved as much as you would expect. There should be more celebrations, more interactive projects around the campus. The professors go above and beyond for their students and they help out as much as they can.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I really like studying here at Tamiu. There are many ways to have an outstanding college experience. Whether you are a sports guy or a intellectual, there is always something for you. The academic level is high, and the campus life is very fun. I would never plan to transfer. I really like it here.

The professors are engaged and eager to teach and everyone on campus is friendly and wants to be there. There are a lot of extra curricular activities on campus. Although the school isn't very diverse, students are accepting to other people and their cultures

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its ok. This school does not have a lot to offer, but what is expected from Laredo? TAMIU is the only university in/near Webb county. Plenty kids come flocking here to get an education or live the college life. The acceptance rate is high, the application is small. Its very cheap but also probably the best education for most of the students attending. That said, if you want to save money for a decent degree, you can come here. But you'll need to focus on your degree and only your degree. Personally going there, I hated it. The layout had few trees, the heat on the pavement was overwhelming, the classes were in dated buildings, and the entire campus felt like it was high school. I also was really into film, and even though there are a select few who try so hard (in vain) to provide Laredo with art culture, the school just didnt fit my academic needs at the time. I ended up getting severe depression and taking medical time off to heal after an "accident". However, truth be told this is a pretty alright school. Academics arent the best, its pretty easy to get a 4.0 and feels like high school, but you have plenty of opportunity to speak to professors or explore the library. The tuition is cheap, and cost of living in the city is low so you will save a LOT of money. Degrees from there do help you out in terms of a career, and many people either study there for two years and transfer to a more challenging school OR get a degree and study graduate at a more challenging school OR get a degree and get a job in Laredo. The school is also good in international business, so kudos to all those business majors out there. The downside is Laredo. I grew up my entire life there, but my family is not originally from Laredo and I accidentally inheirited their dislike for the city. Why are they here, you ask? Stepping stone: low cost of living and job market. Anyway, TAMIU can be really boring outside of class. There are clubs, but they arent very active. Laredo does not have a lot to do except clubbing maybe. Even then they arent good clubs no matter what anyone tells you. Opportunities are also limited because, you guessed it! Laredo! There is not a lot of festivals, research, business, or political play here (once again native Laredoans will argue but they never experienced what a city of Laredo's size is actually capable of). The weather also sucks. Its extremely hot and for some reason someone decided it was a wonderful idea to plant the trees along the buildings rather than along the sidewalks where people actually walk. I think theyre making progress on that, but its still too hot. The campus is small and is pretty ugly, and there isnt much to do there either (most campuses have entertainment areas or common areas with tvs and games and anything else fun; TAMIU has a cafeteria). It is actually a pretty boring university. But on the upside there are a lot of friendly faces (though most of them all know each other from high school), professors are nice, classes are decent and the degree might just be worth it! Lots of people come here for a better life, including my own parents, so I understand it may be all that some people can do. But hey, if youre coming here then youre still on your first step to a degree! But if you had the choice of here or UT, well thats no competition. HOOK EM \m/

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the university, to be honest. I leave it 4 stars because it's still expanding and it's on its way to becoming bigger and better, but it's great! The professors that I've had so far are dedicated to their classes and care about you learning the subject. They make sure to tell students to remember that they have office hours and that they will gladly help you with anything you need, but you have to go to them first, or they will never be able to help you. The students are probably not completely extroverted, but those in student organizations are, and talking to anyone isn't too hard, especially because the majority don't mind if you need to ask them something for a moment, especially if you're a classmate, although they may be surprised to be talking to a stranger, but that's nothing too odd at a university. With its calm atmosphere, TAMIU is pretty nice, especially with how its programs are expanding and the tuition is one of the most affordable out there.
