My experience at UTB has not been the greatest or exactly what I was hoping for as I decided to continue my education. I am a Junior and of the courses I have taken not too many were memorable. My experiences include a Government professor whom was very biased in her teachings, and a Biology professor who didn't seem to be prepared for her lectures most of the time. I feel as though I haven't been challenged enough and the quality of education could use improving. Though the benefits of this school do include low tuition costs and plenty of parking.

I can’t pick just one memorable event since I’ve attended the University of Texas at Brownsville. But, I’ll mention a few of my most memorable; for instance, my transition from a high school to a university was an enormous step that was difficult to adjust. However, after adjusting to college things began to settle down. Overall, I have notice such a personal growth since I’ve attended college; I hope this never ends.
