What is your overall opinion of this school?

UTRGV is like a second home for me where they can offer me the opportunity to teach me and get me prepared for my future dream of becoming an anime director and to start my own production company. Sure, the classes will get difficult as the semester up and go, but as long as you have a dream worth fighting for and that you believe in it, then it will become a reality with belief, patience and hard work.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While they are a good school to attend because it is affordable and close to home, the atmosphere in UTRGV feels very closed off. There aren't that many activities to do, and most of the scholarships are based on sports instead of academics. Teachers are good, but many care more about the paycheck than the students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall the campus is satisfactory. As a student, I and other students have a few complaints, but the campus is always growing to help students feel more comfortable. It is adaptable. Therefore, the University is fairly good but there is always room for improvement.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe the university is a good school overall. Fall 2019 will be my third semester and as of now, so far so good. It's not the best school but it's a school with great professors willing to help their students succeed. They offer a variety of courses.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This campus is a decent size. The classes are not too big nor too small. The professors provide their email addresses and office hours in the event that we need them. The classes are pretty easy to follow. I have not heard much about sorority life, but I do know that there is some. The professors I have had have all been nice and easy to follow. The campus itself is very clean, there is always someone from the janitorial staff around making sure the campus looks neat. The restrooms, as well, are never dirty and are constantly stocked. However, some stalls do lack locks which can be pretty annoying. The campus housing is not at all far from campus. The parking lot for the Freshman’s however is very far from campus and is a hassle to get in and out of. The Zone 3 parking is the closest but that is for the professors. I don’t view this as fair seeing as though a student should be allowed closer parking. The Parking permits are not too expensive but can add up. I recommend getting the Zone 2 Parking, The spots are harder to find but it is less of a walk to the classes. If you plan on taking morning classes, you might want to invest in the closes parking you can because they are farther from campus the cheaper they are. Overall, my experience was great my Freshman year. It was a struggle, but I made it, Also Take advantage of the free classes over 12 hours.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The classes at the university is like any other college, the campus life is a bit dull and not much on partying. Many students do try to look for outlets during the weekends but theirs hardly any. Utrgv is good with on campus events and giving away free food for students. Classes and teachers are accessible, as for sports, it is not what we as a campus are known for but we do encourage it. Overall not a very active school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

If you want to go to a school where everyone is academically focused, this is your place. When I transferred from Texas Southmost College it was a complete change of scenery. Everyone came on campus for one thing and one thing only and that is to get that degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college is nice and professors are easy but the campus is lacking some things. Off living housing is proven to be expensive. At least $700 dollar rent. Meanwhile the dorms tend to be cold, have shared bathrooms, and the locking system is difficult to deal with.
