"The campus offered a lot of activities. Many cultural and heritage based activities and events. Great campus and very safe. The liberal arts department was amazing and I was very please with the classes I had with the department. The psychology department was great as well!"

Innette Valenzuela - 12/13/2016
Degree: Military Science
Graduation Year: 2016
"When I first applied for college, I pursued Education. Further down the road I became dissatisfied with the Education program at UTEP and changed my major to Multidisciplinary Studies. Unfortunately, my adviser was not thorough about the options I had. I was left in the dark and confused about what I wanted to do with my education. I was fortunate enough to meet with an adviser that guided me through my current degree. I only regret not knowing about it earlier on."

Degree: Teaching
Graduation Year: 2012
"I had a great experience with UTEP and the History Teacher Education program was very good for me. Although I have decided not to pursue a career in the field, I am more than confident in the skills that UTEP taught me in my years there. Dr. Keith Erekson, who currently serves as the Director at the LDS Church History Library, had a profound impact on me and helped me see the many different avenues that a History major can go as far as their career. Being a Caucasian student in a school with such history in civil rights helped mold me as a person and I feel improved my outlook on life. I can honestly say that UTEP gave me an education that went much further than the classroom and I will forever be grateful for it."

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2013
"There were many positive aspects of he program I experienced. The curriculum is set up so you can take specific courses together. However, you are not able to advance further into the courses until the previous courses were completed. The initial large class size did not allow for a more individualized type of instruction."

Linguistics Student - 7/26/2016
Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2012
"Underrated school in my opinion; the classes, the professors and the programs available are among the best in the state. This school gave the tools and foundation to grow beyond what I had imagined for myself. I'm proud to be called a Miner, because thanks to all the progress the school has done in a near future UTEP will be an even greater university."

Cassie Arnold - 7/10/2016
Degree: Exercise Science
Graduation Year: 2015
"The Kinesiology program at UTEP is a great program. The courses they provide for the students really help prepared me for physical therapy school, which includes exercise physiology, biomechanics, personal training, and A&P. Most of these courses really dive into the human body and the responses to exercise, injury, disease, and stress. One of my favorite courses included in the Kinesiology curriculum was Fitness Programs and Appraisals (KIN 4330). Along with the semester course work, we were assigned to work at the Kinesiology department gym where they offered exercise programs to older alumni. Our assignment was to create an exercise program based off the clients evaluation (done by the professor) and guide the client through each exercise, focusing on technique and prevention of injury. It's a very competitive program and all of these courses require students to study vigorously. And most of the professors are great with communicating with the students."

"I had a great experience, and I learned a lot. The degree plans are very interesting, and the courses help to encourage to keep learning. The University is under construction, and it is growing and improving new programs. I would improve a lot in my English skills and my writing skills because English is my second language."

Degree: Information Technology
Graduation Year: 2007
"Bhutanese architecture, very cool! Large foreign student population. Track & field mostly African nationals with scolarships. Campus can be smoggy - refinery within 2 miles. Campus built on foothills (therefore, the Bhutanese influence) in desert environment (El Paso, Tx). Mexican border very close. Big-city traffic."

Degree: Accounting

"I was pleased with the accounting program especially the professors. The program taught me subjects that were relevant to the cpa exam, which I felt was very useful. Many of the professors are very supportive and have a lot of knowledge to share."
