I love my professors and my peers, but the college focuses more on other programs. We don't have enough in our budget, and it's embarrassing that even community colleges have better film equipment than we do. However, the theater/film department does an amazing job on it's shoestring budget.
My opinion is that UTRGV is a great well-rounded school that deserves more recognition from our community, as it provides so many opportunities for local folks to be able to have a career at a low price and still have a wonderful college-life experience that will be able to help them in their future endevours.
I've gone to college for around 2 years and everytime I go or any time I need help with something, someone is always there to help. Starting Monday, I'll be going on my own to college and I'm very excited but as well as nervous since I won't know anyone in my classes, but there's always room to make friends.
It is really nice you have a lot of different type of wild life to see outside whether if it’s walking by or riding your bike. Classes aren’t to far unless your taking more then one subject that isn’t in the same category. Other than that I’ve had some great experiences when I go and tour the university.
The fall 2020 acceptance rate for The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley is 63%. 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 _____.
Friends at this stage will only hurt you and not help you. There will be many distractions along the way including boyfriends, illnesses, and times when you want to give up; stay focus. What seems important now will not matter in the future, except your education what you make of it. Remember you have it in you to make a great impact in your own life and the life of others.
In the years that I've been attending this university all my classmates have been very nice and helpful some have even become close friends.
The best thing about my school is its emphasis on phylanthropy. The engaging clubs at my school are always working on the next big project to raise money for charities. Their enthusiasm is breath-taking, inspiring, and contagious. They hold brisket plate sales, book sales, food donations, and clothing donations. They also make weekly trips to certain parts of the valley where the neighborhoods are mistreated and help clean them and donate their fundraising to people who need it. Their patriotism for this school is evident and makes me proud to be called a bronc.
No other school would be relatable to the lifestyle that I have been accustomed to. It is like the home away from home that a lot of my peers enjoy going to. Its almost like thebrighter side of our seemingly meek day. When weare there , no matter how difficultour school day has been, there is a certain sense of hope that cannot be found anywhere else other than our campus. The light at the end of the tunnel seems tobe a lot brighter th emore time wea ttend.
People who are not serious about receiving an education shouldn't attend the University of Texas Pan American because they will be wasting their time and money and the professors time. Other than that, anyone is welcome! People with disabilities, with ambition, with artistic abilities, and with the desire to learn.
The kind of person who wants to continue their education post bachelor's degree. The majority of the students I come in contact with, including myself want to go to graduate school and are highly involved in mentoring youger students.
I wish I had known a little bit more about the history. This university has such a background to it that I only got to know it by coming to it. It keeps on expanding and growing beyond the limits a university should have. It's become a major staple in the city of Edinburg but I didn't know its history. Never was it mentioned in any orientation either.
Being composed of mostly hispanics and being a commuter university.
I always tell my friends that you don't have to go to a big expensive school to get a quality education. Family support is very important and it is something you can count on when you attend a commuter university.
Lack of more student participation.
Panam is not a very large university, but its agood place to be at. Its also close to home, it takes me about 15-30 minutes depending on traffic.
Some of the mos common stereotypes are geeks or latino students, mostly mexican.
The best thing about the school is the Honor's program. The class sizes are down to twenty students. I would change the parking situation. My school is just right. It is big enough to have students all around but small enough to have everything within walking distance. People always ask me how I like the school. I have never received a negative reaction. Most of my time on campus is spent in the library studying. The school's administration is involved and friendly. The biggest recent controversy at school was over budget cuts. "Bucky Pride is shown throughout the walk ways" There are many student organizations that show school pride. I will always remember the "Hestec" festival they have every year. All the student organizations come together with the community to have a great time on the campus. The most frequent student complaint is about the parking situation.
the most popular activity groups are the community service groups, inside the fraternities.
The professors are very friendly. They are willing to work with you and help you out when you need it. There are writing centers available and a student learning center that offers tutoring. You can always find students in the library studying. The classes are usually full with eager students wanting to learn. Some professors put their lectures online that help if you miss a class. The most unique class I took was asian philosophy. We learned how to meditate. I am majoring in Psychology and so far all the professors have been helpful. I am writing a thesis right now and I have three professors on my board. Two of them I have never taken for class but they were still willing to help me. The education is geared toward you learning something not just memorizing facts.
Because it is a great college with many opportunities for a college students to succeed.
A typical weekend includes studying and hanging out with friends
The dorms are small. They are watched heavily 24/7
The sports scene is not that big, however the sports that we do have generate a lot of hype around campus.
