If you are fluent in spanish and english that is beneficial. If you are all american english and nothing more then i wouldn't waste my money.Parking here is outrageously expensive. tuition seems to go up all the damn time. class schedules are not block scheduling. Some classes you pay for, you attend the class and then are assigned online homework. I am seeing this more and more in the Engineering and math departments. This is a lazy way for professors to grade. Budget cuts all over the Engineering department have cut down on the really good professors with the exception of 3 or 4 left.

I am a first year student here at UTEP and I am a student athlete. I've heard all kinds of negative things about the campus and life here in El Paso but as far as I can see everything that was said was wrong and far fetched. El Paso seems to be a great place to me and even though I haven't been here for very long it's starting to become a second home. Now at times do I get bored or down, yes, but being from dallas, which is nine hours away, I do tend to get a little home sick. I've made several friends here and have even made some what I believe to be life long friends. The university is a great you to attend school and I'm really excited about my next four years here as a student athlete. So for everyone who has something negative to say about the university, I really do hope you have a very legitimate reason for doing so and that you yourself have experienced the wrongs that you are accusing the campus of having. Utep is a great university and I am happy to call myself a miner. Go Utep!!!

UTEP does not offer a single experience. There are positives and negatives.
Negatives: large freshman classes.
Open admissions. Many freshmen are unprepared and apathetic.
Attitude. Many students seem to think college is a fashion show. Campus is full of kids thinking they are hot **** with their Hollister and Aeropostale Outlet Mall outfits. A lot of these students show up to classes with a high school attitude, they talk and text the whole time.

Positives: Once you get past the freshman level, and into upper division courses in your major or minor, most of the immature students are weeded out or have grown up a bit.

Faculty are generally welcoming or helpful, but this varies widely by department.Some people may be put off by the lack of social activity, but if you want to focus on learning, those distractions are gone.
