Student Responses to Review Topic: Am I Enjoying Being Here

  • Amber from Odessa, TX
  • I am a current student here

    I have met so many amazing people at this university. The diversity in the backgrounds and experiences of these people has been enlightening. I have learned many life lessons from both students and professors. I have also found it invigorating to meet people who have a passion for what they are learning. There are also many free and exciting events held by different organizations and clubs. For example, there are movie nights, ice skating nights, bowling nights, video game contests, guest speakers, webinars, and so much more!!! It actually takes effort to have nothing to do on a week night!

    Apart from extracurricular activities that you have to force yourself to be involved in, there's not much to do here. There will be random events that the student board has but very little people go to the events.

    I am actually a native of Odessa and I have felt that being able to go to a university in my hometown was more relaxing! However, I recommend living on campus or in an apartment near campus instead of driving 30 minutes to get to classes! Plus it's much easier to be involved when living on/near campus.
