What is your overall opinion of this school?

UTRGV is a great school! It is not extremely diverse, but overall the population is nice and friendly. Academic-wise, professors are good! Wish the athletics games were more supported by the student-body, rather than locals. As an International student, there isn't enough support. Staff members are bad at communicating and they don't offer any good scholarships, which is very sad.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a legacy of The University of Texas-Pan American, which in 2015 joined The University of Texas Brownsville to form The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. Since then, everything has gone up. The school's rating, the tuition, and the school's spirit. As in everything, changes are always hard. No one liked the new mascot, creating it a community problem. Students hated to take the bus for a hour to arrive to the opposite campus. Now, two years later, students and staff have being able to create a harmonious environment between both campuses.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My university might not be the number one ranked but it has provided me with the opportunity to earn my degree near home. UTRGV is expanding and increasing in student applicants each year so I hope that it can provide a great experience to every future student as it has continued to provide to me. The Rio Grande Valley has been my home since I was born and I love living here close to all my loved ones. Thanks to UTRGV I am in the process of working towards my nursing degree which will be a challenging process but I am glad that I am able to be with my family while I am earning my education. I cannot have imagined earning my BSN degree anywhere else other than at UTRGV.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Its a great school, very affordable, amazing students, everyone is so nice and helpful. I was skeptical at first because it wasn't my first choice, but man am I so glad that I came here. The pizza lady at the dining hall is the mvp she's so great, and the mi taco ponchos in the cafeteria is a life saver.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UTPA/UTRGV is a great college where you can get a great education while paying less for tuition in comparison to other universities. Aside from the great education a student receives, there is much fun, happiness, and intrigue to be had with fellow students and teachers, as well as at the cool campus facilities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

AWESOME. Second home. i love that it's very close to home. Staff is very helping when you need help. I love the University recreation center! They actually just added a pool for extra relaxation when needed. One thing is that they need more signs for buildings or directions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great school and the community is awesome. The teachers are always willing to help and the students are great to work with. The on campus dining hall could use some work but other than that its great.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This school is great as an academic institution. There are plenty of free services on campus for tutoring and extra academic help. Class sizes are not too big and professors do a good job of getting to know you personally. If you are looking for the "typical college experience," you aren't going to get it here. However, you will have had a good academic experience and come out of college with a lot less debt than other schools.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UTRGV (previously UTPA) is well known here in the Rio Grande Valley and probably the go-to college for RGV too. A very nice college with quite some green around campus, big not only campus wise but also student body wise with a little under 30,000 students (28,584). You get a great education here and there's quite the variety of organizations to join. A small comment would be to expand the majors currently offered cause although it does offer a lot, I believe it can do so much more! Whether it is medicine or art, expanding would always be a plus.
