I think that my college, Texas Southmost College, is one of the best community colleges in Texas. They have Really good professors and courses to take and the staff is friendly and there to help me and other students with any questions we may have. Especially the people who work in the student services building. This is going to be my second year in Texas Southmost College and I can say that I think this staff and faculty have done a great job helping out the students. I was really lost my freshman year, I did not know what I was really doing, but thanks to my academic advisor and the help of other staff members I am so close to graduating with my associate's degree.

It is now called the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley, which is the unison of UTB and Pan-American. It is a very natural and beautiful campus, students are sympathetic, professors are understanding and professional. I plan on staying at UTRGV, the culture is great, Go Vaqueros!

lexi

Most of the students I attended high school with would say that UTRGV would not provide the same education as a university farther up north would; they would qualify the school as subpar. However, I would strongly disagree. The professors are incredible, the environment is more than welcome, the offered services are ever so helpful, and the campus itself is beautiful.

Brianna

I have completed a semester at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley at Brownsville and am currently attending my second at the moment. I honestly don't have many complaints besides the lack of availability of classes. I understand that we are fairly new and still growing as a university here, but I just wish there were more classes here in Brownsville instead of having to travel to Edinburgh. Other than that, I think the campus is great, I often enjoy walking around and the Rec Center that we have is amazing. I don't live on campus but have been told that the dorm are nice. Student life is friendly, in fact making friends is often quite easy.

Texas Southmost College FAQS

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    College is a wonderful learning experience! I learn new things everyday; the satisfaction of knowing that no one can take the knowledge I accuire, makes it all the better. I love the fact that college not only teaches me the subjects, but also about life. I always believed college was going to be so hard, and I have to admit I was a little scared to start. In my personal situation, I attend college(UTB) far from home (Dallas), and it was pretty hard in the beginning, but this experience has made me grow as an individual. I have become more independent, and that I feel, is one of the asspects I value the most from attending college. Its not like school, here I have to work for what I want, because in the end if I don't take advantage of the opportunity that is laying right in front of me, I will be the only one losing from it. I will never regret making the decision to go to college, and hope to accuire a career as an Accountant thanks to my college education. Before college, I always wondered why everyone loved their college years, now I know!

  11. What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

    The major problem about my school is that some of the students are not college-ready due to their poor academic performances. Moreover, some of the professors are making the students too comfortable in their grades by using academic curve to the extreme. Academic curve gives undue advantages to some students despite of their porous performances in homeworks, tests and the finals. This favor eventually boomerang on the students whenever they go to another school out of the valley. They(students) found it hard to cope which leads to unproductiveness. I believe grades should be awarded based on merits.
