| Do not attend this school at all costs, you will be deeply disappointed wasting four years of your life. The campus is run down, the library is not up to date with the newer technology as compared to other schools. The students are snobs, unfriendly people who have a stick up their butt. |

| UTEP is a great school. Many people have harsh words due to the fact that it is a "commuter school", but I think that the education you receive at UTEP is a great one. Although the student body does need more unification, I have no real complaints other than the fact that sometimes the staff in the student services building are overworked and sometimes cold and distant. Our football and basketball team are doing incredibly well this year, so our student body is starting to be more school spirited. I am proud to be a UTEP student and I am confident that the education I get will prepare me for a successful professional future. I am a transfer student from California, and I have fallen in love with the desert and the friendly people of El Paso. Go to UTEP!!! Go Miners!!!! |

The University of Texas at El Paso has decent academics, but I believe the quality of life at the school is poor. The school spends too much of their time and money on "improving" the campus but there is little or no positive effects on the students. The departments don't communicate well with each other or with students, many times they will make a mistake on a student's records and won't inform the student. The school is too bureaucratic and not student friendly. If you decide to attend this university, keep in mind that:|
->It has one of the lowest tuitions in the state of Texas, despite a recent increase (of 20% to 28%).
->The academics are good.
->Professors are friendly and approachable.
->There is a (very) high number of international students because of its proximity to the border.
->Students are unapproachable and "clicky".
->Be prepared to have conflicts with the staff (student services, financial aid, cashiers, etc.)
->Terrible (sorry) football team.
->Not a lot of student organizations to join.
->Beautiful architecture on the campus building but no trees (its practically the middle of the desert.)
->A lot of military people.
->A lot of older students.
->(Maybe its bad to mention this) Being so close to the border, a 10 minute drive form campus will take you into Mexico where you can party at the clubs where the legal drinking age is 18.
