Overall, UTEP is quite a great school to attend. I could be biased because I'm local to the school's location. But, it is enjoyable and engaging for student activities, classes, and opportunities that they offer. The professors are always ahead in ensuring that the students are involved in the topics at hand. As well as bring an honest perspective to their teachings and how they engage with their lectures. I say this school is full of life for its size, and I don't regret enrolling in this university.
I personally enjoy this campus a lot. I feel challenged academically, I am encouraged to join organizations that are actually interesting. The community is amazing, the students love to help each other. My only complaint is I wish there were more scholarship opportunities available.
It's honestly pretty great. I feel as though especially those who live in El Paso feel as though it is nothing to be proud of or that it is a bad school but it is not. It may not be as big as other Texas University's but it certainly still just as good. I feel that because of its smaller size that the community is better and it feels more intimate. You are likely to bump into your friends or even have class with them. They offer a lot of great extracurricular activities and are always having events to get people more included. The academics are severely underrated. Of course there may be some not so good professors but every university has that issue. However, the curriculum itself is amazing. They really show that you do not need to go to a big, fancy, overly priced school to get a good education.
The University of Texas at El Paso is such a calm campus, and you are able to concentrate to be able to take your studies seriously. Occasionally we do have events to alleviate the stresses of school and socialize with others to create friendships. The university has many resources to help students succeed and I love the fact that we are able to turn to a group if we have mental health issues as it may occur. The professors do such an excellent job in explaining and teaching their students and if I need assistance they will tend to my concerns or questions. The passing rates in their Nursing program are high and its comforting to me because I know for certain that I am in good hands.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for The University of Texas at El Paso is 99%. That means, out of _____ applications received in 2020 , _____ students were offered admission. The number of males who applied was _____ vs the number of females which was _____.
I would tell myself to be more open to the different networking that is available at the school, and not to be shy. It is important to get involved in school activities, but it is also important to stay focused on academics and not get distracted partying. It is also beneficial to attempt to make as many friends as possible, as they can help you get through school in several ways.
The way the campus is set up on uneven ground, sometimes I have to run up hills to make it to class in time, and it takes alot out of me. Also sometimes when I am trying to get things done I get sent to many different departments and get the run around or the things they say that they fixed it and didn't.
My fellow classsmates, coming from a very diverse group, are determined, motivated, kind, generous, and above all willing to learn and do anything to achieve their goals in life.
The University of Texas at El Paso is helping me achieve my goal of becoming a Geoligist by providing highly educated professors, excellent learning facilities, readily available learning resources, and an overall satisfying learning experience.
I wish I had known a little more math before I arrived here. I also wish I could have attended class so I could've better prepared myself as far as note taking and budgeting my time in class and after class.
The best part about UTEP was that it was next to home and algo that it provided the major that I was looking for. Also the labs for my career where brand new.
This University is more geared to individuals already living in El Paso whom wish to advance their education. Being the only big time university in the city, most individuals at this school are commuter students. Most grew up in the city and after graduating from high-school or attending community college for a while end up staying at this univeristy. It is a great starting point.
To come to UTEP, you have to be open-minded. You have to be willing to interact with other people, not just your “own”. There are so many different types of ethnicities, so many different sororities, and even more, extreme variety of ages on students. Anyone who comes to UTEP can be a UTEP Miner, they only need to allow themselves to truly be one.
The classes offered.
I tell people that I enjoy the flexibility of online classes. Also, I like that I am saving money by attending this school as opposed to going to the previous university to complete the same degree.
I think the 1966 College Basketball championship game where Don Haskins played a team of mostly African-American players and won the championships is probably what most people know about our university. But we are working very hard to become known as a prestigious research institution. We are in the process of working towards tier one research institution status. We are increasingly being recognized for winning major research grants and opening up research opportunities to a wide range of students from different backgrounds and socio-economic statuses. So, we are making much progress towards being known for our research.
The most frustrating thing about my school right now is the construction because we have to take long alternative routes in the campus to get to our class, but when this ends I think there would be no problem. I would say that the school needs more spirit and fun activities.
At UTEP we have a variety of people from all over the place. Hispanics, White, Black, Asian, etc. Being that the university is right at the border of the United States and Mexico, the Hispanic population is the largest of them. However, since there are people from all over, we also have all kinds of personalities, we have frat kids, geeks, athletes, to name a few. There is not just one stereotype.
I can get my degree online.
Although I am an online student the professors take the time to get to know each student.
i have never joined any of those groups but sororities and that kind of groups are popular. football and mens basketball are big events on campus. guest speakers are not very popular. i met my closest friends in orientation and in class, where you spend more time with them. if im awake at 2 in the morning im probably studying till my eyes bleed. there is minerpalooza every year, and its like a big set up to introduce the football team and they have games and food and stuff for the whole family. there is also a contest for sororities(very fun). thursday, friday, and saturday are party days for a lot of students. I went out partying last friday and rested on saturday as well as reading my textbook every now and then.
For me it has been the physical science building
