excellent teachers and advisers always willing to help. If you are looking for cultural diversity this is the right place. UTB is a very active university there are several events going on every day and a lot of clubs to enroll.
Amairani from Brownsville, TX
This University is more of a commute school, kinda like a high school. It does have wonderful professors, clubs, degrees, and help for students. It is a good college to get your feet wet and then transfer to another college.
Aurora Villarreal
The University Of Texas at Brownsville is a great option for anyone who is still undecided to where to continue their education. Whit a great variety of degrees there should be one right for you. And also the culture of being next to Mexico makes our institution one of the best to attend.
