UTPA is a LOVELY campus. It is not too big, not too small. The community is fabulous, there is always an activity going on and you never fail to meet some new friends. The professors definitely know how to make classes fun but at the same time they are ready to help you with struggles you may have.
Academic Advisors are always available in the AAMC center to help you, just call in to set up an appointment first at (956) 655-7120 if they don't answer, keep calling. Chances are they are with another student.
