    If you plan on attending any University your first priority should be to locate important buildings, for example, Finacial Aid services, Admissions, advising, your specific major building. But a Tip for Prospective Students this campus is very easy to navigate in that you can just follow the path, that leads all around the campus, and you will eventually find what you're looking for. Another piece of sage advise would be to register for your classes early it may not seem as though the valley has a big school but being that there tuition is so low and there campus is still high quality there are many out of staters and foreigners as well as valley residents who attend, so register early. The last tip for prospective UTRGV students and college students, in general, get involved, either by participating in an event or rally or joining a club or organization. Being involved makes your college experience a lot more fun, so do it.

    Sometimes the classes only have a 5-10 minute gap between them and it is recommended to choose your classes using a map of the campus to avoid running from one side of the campus to another since there are professors who dock off points for being tardy.
