The fact that we are research-oriented. The fact that we are trying to become a tier one university as well as the fact that there are many organizations on campus that touch on all subjects. We have very progressive organizations that help keep the students motivated to do the best they can in their scholastic duties.

I tell them that in more ways than one, UTEP is like an undiscovered gold mine. At first mention, people might dismiss it because of where it's located and the socio-economic status of El Paso, as well as the proximity to Juarez. What they don't know about is the world-class faculty (in multiple departments), state-of-the-art tech., and solid education that UTEP can seriously offer.


That it is a great place with huge school spirit and great people who respect you and your property. It has great extracurricular activities that you can join no matter what you like, you will find it. It is the home away from home.


a good and extensive campus with lots of activities to do


Considering the constant rise in tuition, tuition at UTEP is extremely affordable. Despite its inexpensiveness, the quality of education is exceptional. Moreover when considering the social/economic reality of El Paso, to have an affordable education for anyone interested and of such great quality available, is something to be taken advantage of. I really cannot brag about our football team, because we are not that renowned; however, in 1966, Texas Western (now UTEP) won the national championship starting five Black players! Monumental moment in athletics and American history. Plus, El Paso is the only city that has Chicos Tacos.


How it is so much of a family. Everyone from students to professors truly care about you and how you are doing academically and personally. It is a great environment, just the right size and so friendly. I love it I never want to leave!
