best school i've ever attended
Honestly, I'm loving it here! I don't think I can see myself anyone else. I'm in a sorority (RUSH THETA ETA) and I love it! The classes aren't too bad and CAB & Student Senate make events on campus which makes being 4 hours away from home bearable!
I love it at UTPB. We always have some event going on and there are lots of ways to get involved in the community. We strive to constantly evolve the college to fit the needs of all the student who go here. If you ever feel like there's nothing to do you probably aren't looking.
Overall, my experiences at UTPB have been about 85/100% due to the lack of support and guidance I had from a majority of the professors directly related to my fields. I was an Art and Math major for a really long time and recently graduated with my BA Art and went back to finish my BS Math. Out of all the professors I had for my major specific classes, I ended up only only respecting two of them for actually teaching me useful information for my desired field of study. Outside of this, the campus is a wonderfully cheerful and friendly place of higher learning where judgement seldom occurs. I have felt more at home outside of my two fields of study then anywhere else; the Psychology department is phenomenal and if I choose to go for a third Bachelor’s, I will go for Psychology at UTPB!! Go Falcons!!

The student and the parents need to go to the campus to check it out. They need to ask questions and search the school's website in order to learn about them as much as they can. THe student will have to trust how he feel when he see the campus and make the decision that is best for them.
One of the drawbacks to our school is that we don't have the greek system. Which makes it harder to get out and meet new people. I think the greek system would help everyone socialize more. Since we don't lack this, there tends to be lot of drama around campus within our various sports teams.
I love the fact that my classes are considered small to most 4 year universities. I feel like I have a better one on one relationship with each of my professors
My classmates are very down to earth.Alot of them are from West Texas which is a barren wasteland of desert and mesquite.They grew up much the same as i did and i can get along well with almost everyone. They are hard working just as i am and the study groups with them allow me to gain friends as well as learning the material greatly.
I think UTPB is a school more for a student who is ready to get to get serious and work hard to achieve what they plan to acomplish. Although the teachers and the expectations of the school might not be as laid back as some other schools in texas it can also be a really fun friendly school. If one wanted to have the absolute best colllege exerience they could have UTPB would be thier right choice. there isnt a college anyone could find better then UTPB.
I wish I had known how important it was to ALWAYS be on time. Many of the professors take promptness and attendance into account when they are grading. In addition, it is exceedingly difficult to succeed in many of the classes when you miss any portion of the lecture. I also wish I had known that what I called 'studying' in high school is worthless for college. College requires a high degree of dedication and often, the students have to completely learn a new means of studying.
Any person that wants higher education. Also any person who wants to attend a highly accredited school without having to go to a huge university.
I brag about how awesome the professors are and how willing they are to help you achieve your goals.
UTPB is a very high expectation school. The classes are very challenging and the teacher?s main goal is to see that students do well. I love that there is a small number of students at UTPB as well this allows for more individual attention then a student would receive at a bigger college. Originally I had planned to transfer to the university of Texas in Austin but having had such a great time my first semester here at UTPB I have decided to stay. I don?t think I would have liked any other school as much.
The professors are always willing to help the students. New students shouldn't be intimidated by the professors. They typically love to answer questions that range from from sheer curiosity to homework related. If you have any problem, even if it is personal, the professors will help you work through it.
The administrative is very unorganized, coming in as a freshman I was giving the run around, no one really knew what was going on. Accepting the student loan was very difficult.
I've only been taking class here for a few weeks, and I love it! The online courses are challenging but fulfilling (I'm doing the [email protected] accelerated Humanities program), the professors are knowledgeable, and everything is great.
One of the best things our school is known for is the dorms. Their style is completely different from those in the surronding area, being apartment-like. Each person has their own room, with a shared bathroom, as well as a full kitchen and living room. Another thing our school is known for is the job acceptance rate after you graduate. We have one of the highest percentage of people who graduate and earn a job after they recieve their degree.
Challenging, but condensed well.
There isn't one - we are a variety!
