She rated most things higher than other students did.
Date: Jul 30 2011
Major: Unknown (This Major's Salary over time)
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.
