What is your overall opinion of this school?

This is my freshman year of college, and I have a couple of months before I start my summer classes. During my first semester, I was always kept up to date with events and other opportunities within my campus. I joined a mentoring program, so once a month I meet with my mentor so that she may answer any of my questions I have or inform me of new updates to the requirements for my program. To me, my mentor has been very helpful and has guided me throughout my first year at the university. During my free time I go to the library where I am assisted when needed by fellow students and administration to get the most out of the resources that are provided there. I also like to take advantage of the recreation center, I go play basketball, volleyball, or just go for a run. Throughout my second semester I have been kept up to date on more events via email, and find them very helpful so that I am aware of opportunities that my school has to offer. Besides the resources they provide, I also turn to all my instructors whenever I need assistance with anything. Most of my professors are available via email throughout the entire day along with their set office hours. I usually take the time to talk to my instructors during their office hours to clear up any questions I may have especially after taking a major exam or anything dealing with my overall grade in the course. All my professors have been very encouraging and reliable for my first year here and I would definitely recommend them to other students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall I believe that The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley is a really good university. Their staff is very helpful, and professors are mainly very accessible. The comply with their office hours and seem to really care as to whether students understand and graduate. I do recommend this university to anyone who lives in the Rio Grande Valley region, as it is an excellent opportunity to continue with higher education, and it very close to home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UTRGV is a college just like us, various cultures mixed to create something good. you wont have any interesting college life unless, you look for it. students are very nice, havent met anyone whom i hate. Many believe that the University is badly administered, some even may argue that there is corruption involved, but if that is fixed and the school tries to take care of its teachers, i believe it could be held in a higher tier than where it is today. one thing that i do want to address is how biased politics are amongst students, many being liberal/democratic socialist. the problem with this is that college is a place where you are supposed to learn about different points of views, but these students will almost try to silence you and in a way make you an outcast in the social media. there a deep division between campuses EDINBURG/BROWNSVILLE. once again, little details that the school should fix to include all types of ideas

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s a great college and I will recommend it. When you go in there you feel safe and everyone is nice. If you need help about something and somewhere you need to go, they will help you. They make you feel like family and everything is lovely. You won’t be disappointed about it and you won’t regret your decision. The teachers are helpful and are open if you need help. We love each other and you won’t be alone. Everyone is hardworking and trying to succeed just like you are too. There is a lot of activities to do and a lot of socializing with each there about news, sports, etc. The school is very nice, and you see different people everywhere and you learn new things about other people and about life. During games people are excited and wild. The people treat each other as family even if they are not, and its fun to hang out with people there. For me it is the best University, and I will recommend it to you. People are very helpful. People are active all-around school, there will always be people in the campus for whatever you need. Everyone will unite together even if they don’t know each other. No one is treated different, everyone is treated the same just like everyone needs to be treated. The food is good and not does not cost that much. It is nice from the inside and the outside and we are all family.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This campus is outstanding! The students and faculty are very sweet and very excited for other students to learn more and join fun groups. This campus is also part of some great history. This campus has a small river and on both sides has buildings that are part of the university, but on one side a very long time ago used to be part of Mexico. The university takes pride in our history and encourages others to learn more about it.
