What I loved about this program was the type of friendships you create with fellow students and even teachers. It is a small program but worth it, that way you make relationships with everyone and get to know every student, you can say you become a family. I really liked the classes since we had the opportunity to learn different types of dances, dance composition, dance history, pedagogy, contemporary, tap, jazz, ballet, workshops, other electives and classes you need to accomplish and you even have the opportunity to travel and learn even more from other university professors.
The professors are amazing, have great personalities, and really push you to be better and focus on what you need to work on even more.
Probably the things I didn’t like that much was having class on Fridays when the majority of students decide to have free Fridays and the fact that you’re tired from all the dancing. Other than that, I really loved my experience at the UTEP dance program. I do recommend it, if you are planning on having a dance bachelor and looking for a good school.
What I liked about my program communication is that is going to help me build my communication, Advertising, and professional skills as an Entrepreneurs.
Secondly, the classes and environment are ok and conducive for learning, we have access to computers during lectures, lecturers make use of projectors during lectures for better understanding of the student. In my school most lecturers are nice and approachable, they are always willing to help students when it comes to academic issues and some of them are also willing to help financially. For now, I don’t think I dislike anything about my school, except for the weather is cold. The student life in (Utep) is good because my school is sharing a border with Mexico so we have more Hispanic students who speak the Spanish language, which will also allow me to make friends with the Latino, Latina, and Latinx students. Students are also allowed to work inside the school environment and still attend classes, Teaching/Graduate assistantship, health insurance, and out of state tuition waiver are available for international student who intends to pursue their master’s and Ph.D. programs, and also there are many programs organized by the school which students, can benefit from after their graduation. With all these opportunities have mentioned, above I will recommend my school to others. Yes, my school is very International in my own opinion. I feel great and happy because I believe at the end of my program at Utep, I will be well equipped, informed, and also fully ready to start up my own company fully and achieve my dreams and goals.
