Overall

My experience at UTB has not been the greatest or exactly what I was hoping for as I decided to continue my education. I am a Junior and of the courses I have taken not too many were memorable. My experiences include a Government professor whom was very biased in her teachings, and a Biology professor who didn't seem to be prepared for her lectures most of the time. I feel as though I haven't been challenged enough and the quality of education could use improving. Though the benefits of this school do include low tuition costs and plenty of parking.

Academics

Recently UTB split with it's sister school TSC which has caused much chaos as to where the actual classes will be held and not enough of school employees to accommodate the mass of students who attend the school. I am studying Psychology and the courses I have completed so far have been quite simple, most of which are computer modules and online homeworks. This leaves me with the fear that I will not have the hands on experience and in-depth knowledge that I will need when I get my career started.

College Life

The clubs are for the most part inactive, and quite small. The only club for Psych majors is the active minds club which I haven't heard from in awhile...The campus is safe, there is an adequate amount of security guards but the university itself is located on the Rio Grande river border crossing, which always lends the atmosphere an element of danger.

Overall

I can’t pick just one memorable event since I’ve attended the University of Texas at Brownsville. But, I’ll mention a few of my most memorable; for instance, my transition from a high school to a university was an enormous step that was difficult to adjust. However, after adjusting to college things began to settle down. Overall, I have notice such a personal growth since I’ve attended college; I hope this never ends.

Academics

The academic programs in my university are designed to help students from diverse cultures and academic backgrounds to succeed in college. For instance, my professors develop close connection to their students. I, for instance, feel assured that I can count on my professors’ for help since I’ve attended this school.

College Life

The university atmosphere is welcoming. For instance, my peers and fellow teachers are diverse and eccentric. This university is unlike any other, if I say so myself. Also, since the student to teacher ratio is small my peers and I can be assisted personally by are professors. In addition, are campus provides us with multiple school activities to get involved with are community. Overall, I’m glad to attend this university.

Overall

I really like this school. The school is good for students who are not very familiar with the transition from highschool to college. It makes that transition smooth. Its close to home, and many of my highschool classmates are in my college classes now. A memorable experiecnce I had was when I performed with the universities mariachi. We played in the new arts center and it was awe inspiring.

Academics

The classes are limited. The school just split from UTB/TSC, and joined with the university of Texas Pan American to form UT-RGV. so theres alot of transition. But the class sizes have gone down considerably. The workload is manageable, and some of the professors that i've had arevery unprofessional.

College Life

The social atmosphere is kinda of lax, moststudents just hangout with their usual clique and ignore pretty much anyone else. Some events that take place are the times that students really get a chance to interact and do activities together. Our soccer and volleyball teams are the top in the nation for our schools division, and they are awesome athletes.

Overall

the school is a clean and friendly environment, and i like that each year I see exchange students which is good to have more variety. The installations of the university are all new, and are well maitained. though the univesrity needs to do more events for foriegn students.

Academics

some of the teachers are awesome because the have the knowledge to teach well. I was pretty mad because last semester they fired many teachers, which were good teachers. I think they should fire the teachers that are not flexible because I had situation with a teacher that was 0 flexiable, teachers need to be flexible when we are at collage level.

College Life

Collage needs more sprots team, and more exchange students. The campus is highly secured, there always securitys cars and karts on campus. As I said the university needs more oraganizations for students as well for foreign students

Overall

I really enjoyed attending to University of Texas at brownsville because everyone: staff, faculty and students are very friendly. This is what attracts me the most to UTB because it makes me confortable to go and study there. I am a very shy person and it makes it hard for me to get use to new enviroments but this place does have a warm feeling that makes it a nice enviroment to study.

Academics

My professors are really great people and they help you with whatever you need. The classes are about 20-30 people which makes it easy to pay attention and they are very friendly. Another thing that really helps the most is that almost every professor comes to class with a tutor that helps you during the week to understand any material that was hard. Also sometimes the profesors will bring faculty from other departments from the university to meet them and invite you to visit them.

College Life

What Ive seen in this university is that everyone has alot of pride in their institution. As you walk thru campus you will notice that many people are wearing school spirit shirts. To me this show that they are really proud of attending to that particular institution and which makes me know I made the right decision of attending there too.

Overall

I like the school. It's small so I don't have to worry about how far I have to go. I also like the teachers. There are a few that bother me, but most of the ones I've had are really helpful and really prepare me for my career. Despite what people say, UTB is a good college to attend, especially if you don't like large campuses. Plus, the border makes it very culturally rich.

Academics

The professors, workload, and class size all depend on what class you are taking. Sometimes, the workloads are small, but other classes are a lot of work. It also depends on your discipline. Most of my classes are around 25 to 30 people.

College Life

There always seems to be something on campus. There are lots of organizations and clubs. They are always in the student union lawn having all sorts of activities. They have games. This semester actually had this bit up a truck thing. It was pretty cool..l.to relieve stress and all.

Overall

I believe that the school is in good academic stand right now. But, this next semester will be a bit stressful since it is separating from Texas Southmost College, which is bringing a lot of confusion and difficulties into most degrees.

Academics

I think my professors are well prepared. I enjoy the majority of my classes. The classroom sizes are just the right amount in order to build relationships with your professors and classmates. Work load seems to be the necessary and correctly applied to the are of study.

College Life

This is a small university which is still in the process of growing and little by little we get to see more activities and campus life. The social atmosphere is very friendly. Since this university is located in a small city with only 5 high school, most of the students in the university are residents of the area. The organization at the moment is suffering some problems because of the split between The University of Texas at Brownsville and Texas Southmost College. Athletic teams are doing good but mor support from the students would be nice. On the weekends there are a couple of different hang out places such as bars, coffee shops, and sport parks where you can spend time. Or if you are a fan of the beach we have South Padre Island which is only 20 min away.

Overall

Overall, the University of Texas at Brownsville gave me a glimpse of what the college experience is really about.Since the University is located in my home town, I am very used to the surroundings and lived at home. What I liked the most was the campus, it is a very new and well-kept facility. Many of my high-school friends currently attend this University, making a very memorable experience day by day.

Academics

The school's classes are very well organized and professors are always up-to-date with current news. However, some of my classes give an extreme amount of workload, considering I have a full-time schedule. On the other hand, class sizes are very favorable; some range from 25 students to 70 students. Nonetheless, large classes are equipped with overheads and microphones that allow every student to actively listen to the lecture.

College Life

The overall social atmosphere of the university is a very calm one. There are many athletic clubs and organizations that allow students to engage in extracurricular activities. The University of Texas at Brownsville currently has a very good girl's volleyball team. On the weekends, there are several activities students can engage in, such as going to the movies or to the local bowling ally.

Overall

This campus is an over all good campus, however because of the size; future students beware. The people at the Financial Aid Office or any other window, the employees are rather rude and act like they really don't care. I'd like to see and hear more respect fromt the campuse employees. The school itself has great tutoring labs as well as academics and athletic teams.

Academics

I think we have a nice variey of programs on campus, I think admissions should work on not over booking the classes. The professors ( the majority) of them try to help you as much as they can. There are those difficult professors don't get me wrong but for the most part we have excellent professors.

College Life

The campus life is refreshing, student life (org) is always throwing an event somewhere on campus. I enjoy them trying to get students to interact. The athletics department as well as the Schools paper really goes out of it's way to reach out to students to join in on the fun. I like that!

Overall

This school is great for anyone wanting to go into a health science profession or is looking to go to medical school. The biology program is very popular here as most pre-med kids choose biology as their major. Just make sure you are fully committed to the work that is required if you choose to go this route.

Academics

Overall the campus is beautiful,large classroom ...very good labs,and good research is going on.class size in average. Most of professors are very helpful and knowledgeable. The workload for each class was moderate.

College Life

Student Activities and Orientation; Student Clubs and organization create an open atmosphere to exchange ideas and knowledge.It is fun and very safe expect that it close to the border.But so far I haven't had any problem.
