What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school is diverse and there's people from many walks of life. The professors follow their schedules and there are always clubs outside waiting for new recruits. All facilities seem rather new and it keeps improving my student life. Everyone is friendly and anyone can make a study group full of random people that soon become friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Great campus, people are friendly, professors make it a priority to help you on areas you might be struggling on. The academics scene is also very feisty in terms of the intensity to which groups of students speak to each other about break through new research and such.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

As a current freshman, I have recently completed my first semester at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. My experience has been filled great learning and involvement opportunities. Professors at the university are very stern and serious regarding academics, but provide students with engaging lessons and material. As a student one must also enjoy and appreciate the clubs and organizations in the university. For example, I personally joined the Student Government Organization through the First Year Internship program which allowed me to take a closer look at the relationship between the university and the needs of the students. Moreover, as a campus resident, I find the university a very safe and protected environment that allows me to walk to the library at midnight. Overall, I see the university growing to become one of the top universities in the State of Texas. I am looking forward to completing my second semester as a freshman and graduating from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UTPA (Now the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley) is overall a comfortable environment to be in. There's always something to do on campus whether it be in clubs, events, or sports. The students are friendly and the teachers and staff are almost always ready to help you in anyway that they can.

It's an average school and a good pit-stop on your journey to higher education. It may not be the highest rated school but there are reputable people working there, allowing you to work your way up and make good connections. It's a satisfactory school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The school itself is very well rounded. The people you meet on campus are great and I enjoy the professors. There are so many things to do while on campus, for example, going to the rec, playing sports with friends on your free time , going to the library, or just lounging around. Unfortunately, I only received $1,700 in loans and no financial aid so I, myself, am not able to get the joy of being a full time student, but even as a part time I really enjoy the campus and hope to enjoy it even more in the future.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UTPA is a small school to attend however its modest size is what gives it the intimate and friendly setting it's known for. Professors are extremely approachable due to the small class sizes and their consistent office hours. Probably the best perk, in my opinion, is the food! Sitting so close to the border, you can find the most authentic and delicious (and fattening too - but which great foods aren't) Mex-Tex restaurants around the campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Best campus I could've picked!! Everyone is so helpful that you can literally ask a random person for help. I felt so comfortable being on campus so quick I do not even hesitate to ask for any help about anything. People here are very welcoming, you will not have any trouble fitting in.
