What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
Make sure to work extremely hard so you will make the Dean's List. With the Dean's List, you will be able to register earlier than other students and guarantee your place in the course you need. I advice future students to get involved and join different organizations. They are a great way to meet new people.

If your going to live on campus i suggest you get to the financial aid office as early as possible since the lines do fill up real quick.

The University of Texas Pan American is a friendly college and not intimidating. Attend your classes and take the time to review your notes. If you have any problems and feel confused at any time throughout the course ask your professors, they will gladly help you. Don't be intimidated by them. Taking an extra 15 minutes to rewrite your notes and organize right after the class while its fresh in your mind will take you a long way :)

1. Don't be shy to ask questions! Asking questions is VERY important in College.
2. Be Active! Attend basketball games, volleyball games, and join an organization to keep you busy while having fun!
3. Balance your classes. Take some easy classes and some hard classes. Do not bombard yourself with hard classes in one semester. You won't enjoy it.
4. Enjoy College!
5. Get on top of your stuff. You are no longer in High School, your teachers will not tell you what you are missing and give you extra time to do it.

*Organize your time & money. Social activities are its best at college, but you also need to be careful on what and how often you spend your money, you want to be out of it before the end of the week.
*Try to stay on track. Like I said before, social activities and sometimes just lazyness will approach your way, but your education is the thing that matters the most right now and its very easy to stay behind, try not to do so because it will bring its consequences, which can go from missing lessons or even dropping a class.
*Be persistant. This is not a easy road, things will eventually get hard at some point or the other, but like a wise man said if you are going through hell, just keep walking. If you are persistant the outcome will be good, and if not then try again until you attain what you were hoping for, this will not be easy and there will be times where you think you just can't deal with it anymore, but its just a stage, you can do it.

Make the most of your college experience and don't let people's bad experiences or moods ruin your excitement for coming here to college. I know a lot of people don't think that a degree from here is worth anything, but school is school, you just have to make sure that you are doing what you have to to really learn and do something meaningful with your degree. There isn't a whole lot to do in the valley, and that's because I've grown up here...but around campus if you find the right crowd, I'm sure you can find other ways to make staying here fulfilling.
Michelle from Edinburg, TX
Never be afraid to ask questions, and don't be intimidated by any professors. Attend your classes and you will most likely pass. If you have any questions besides academics, don't be afraid to ask your advisors nor departments heads because everyone is willing to help.
