“The people that are employed in any ofBrightPsychology
The people that are employed in any of the administration departments are not helpful. Getting an answer is like pulling teeth. You get the run around pr silence. They lose paperwork (eg. Transcripts, financial aid). I truly cannot understand the lack of competence and accountability. So frustrating.
The campus is pretty and the faculty can be reachable and sometimes helpful; however, this place has zero social life and if you aren't front he surrounding area you won't fit in. The school is a commuter school, and the campus is dead by 4 pm. Many students are older and have families or other obligations, so there is no student life. The students that are younger are close minded and already have a clique of friends, they are very hard to approach. If you don't speak spanish or if you aren't from the surrounding area, you will have a difficult time here. I strongly recommend anyone who wants the traditional college experience to not go here. I've only been here for a semester and I hated it the entire time. Unless you are an athlete and put in the nicer dorms, you will be dormed with only international students who stay in their groups and don't speak english.
If you want a real challenge or a "party" atmosphere, look elsewhere. UTEP is essentially a commuter campus and the work isn't very difficult. But, it is a bargain and the low cost of living in El Paso is attractive.
