What is your overall opinion of this school?

Is a great university and is close to home so why not go there. Every day when I pass by I see everyone with there laptops and all the books and I feel I can join and have fun in college too. My goal is to graduate of network marketing of business. Hope that will come true.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is alright. It wouldn't be my first option, just because its home to me and everyone wants to leave and see the world. It honestly isn't that bad, I just find it very boring. There are a lot of organizations but I have joined any because the students seem rude.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this University! Since day one i have always felt welcomed and everybody is always available to help me out. I feel very safe in the campus and even encourage high school students to consider this University because of the great potential it has. One thing i will always praise is the dedication of the staff to ensure the well being of all students. They send emails daily regarding anything and everything, which i love because they are very informative. I recommend this University 100% and feel like i can genuinly succeed in my future career and personally too.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

overall it was a good experience my time there. Sometimes it would get packed especially in the morning but I manage to get to my area in the library and work or study, participate in sport activities, soccer for example. The professors were professionals at their job even outside their classes. Definitely a go to school if your looking for a good degree or medical school program.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great university to go and gain your degree. The food can be much better though however, its surrounded by restaurants near by so its not bad. The university if really secure and if anything suspicious happens it is reported fast enough for the police to arrive to prevent anything bad to happen.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Rio Grand Valley is a growing university and every year it is getting better. It is just still lacking many fields of study. I am an artist, and my major is Fine and Studio Arts, and I was really surprised with the decency and quality of art classes in UTRGV due to it being in a small city like Edinburg. It could improve but all in all I am having a good experience with my education, and my professors are truly caring.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UTRGV is an amazing University, if it weren't for my parents pushing me to apply to college I would never have had the college experience everyone talks about. Being apart of the University has taught me so much about the different cultures around me, and about how close everyone is even if they just met.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I must give an honest review of my university, and I can honestly say that although this university gets a bad review for being in Brownsville Texas, it is such an amazing university. The academics are outstanding, the students are very determined, the faculty here is very generous and helpful to those that seek it, overall, my university deserves a better rating from those that have not experienced it. It may not be a top tier university, but it does not deserve the ratings that people currently give it either. The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley is currently ranked the 4th best university in Texas by “BestColleges.com” and I can agree on that, because this university is not bad at all for all the programs and opportunities that it offers for students. A great example is that this university is home to the nationally award-winning Mariachi Aztlan, that I am hoping to become a part of very soon. Students here have also had the opportunity to be taught by award winning professors such as Dr. Karen Lozano, who was awarded the Presidential Excellence Award in Science, Mathematics, and Engineering Mentoring by President Donald J. Trump. Dr. Lozano is a mechanical engineering professor and the director of the UTRGV Nanotechnology Center of Excellence. I, myself, am an engineering student, however, I also enjoy music, mariachi music to be precise, and I love the fact that I am given the opportunity to major in both Computer Hardware Engineering, as well as Mariachi Education! Two complete opposite areas of study, yet this university offers the chance to pursue a degree in both! I usually attend the Brownsville campus, but there are two campuses for UTRGV, the other is in Edinburg, Texas, about an hour and a half away from Brownsville. If a class is not offered at the campus a student attends, it is usually offered at the other campus, but to make sure a student has no problem to attend that class, the university offers a bus shuttle to take students to each campus if they have no form of transportation, as well as so they do not have to drive an hour and a half! The bus shuttle even has built-in wireless internet connection so that students have the chance to complete their work while they are on their way to classes! Overall, I have to say that this university is incredible for what it offers and the cost of attending, the knowledge and experience that is obtained here is great, especially for those that struggle financially. This university definitely deserves its spot as the 4th best university in Texas!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a decent school, however if you were born and raised within it's proximity I highly recommend that you go elsewhere. You will not get the real college experience that is needed to mature and evolve if you stay here. As for the campus in general it's a quaint campus however, once again, I recommend going somewhere else if you can. The classes are far to crowded, making the instruction time less efficient. The professors either are very compassionate or very careless, so be careful care full with which professors you end up with. On top of that the sports offered here are few in number, and it would be far more energetic if there was a football team.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe a UTRGV is not just about me its about the value of education they are dedicated to provide those who attend . This is my first year attending college I am currently a freshmen my experience so far attending UTRGV has been great. I would encourage others to enroll.
