The University of Texas of the Permian Basin feels more like a Jr. college than an actual university and while it does have many perks such as more accessible professors and smaller classes, the amount of group-think and the absolute lacking of intellectually challenging classes (or people) makes this a dull choice for those hoping for both a rewarding and challenging college experience.
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.
