Welcome to the new UTPA University College! We are here to help our undergraduate students succeed in college and to support faculty in working with our students. Feel free to explore our website for ideas about what you can do with your college experience to get the most out of it or to look for answers to some of the questions you might have about UTPA. This blog will be updated weekly to share stories about our students and events that are going on in our various areas.
We are looking forward to an exciting year in the University College. This will mark the first year of the Page One program in which the university community will be sharing the experience of reading and discussing the fascinating book Where Good Ideas Come From by Steven Johnson. There will be some great events this year all focused on “good ideas.” We’ll also be starting our second year of the popular series Strategies for Academic Success, which is open to all students, and our second year of tutoring in study skills and critical reading strategies at the University Writing Center. Future blog posts will talk about those topics and many more.
Remember that the University College is here for you! If you can’t find the answer that you are looking for or the help that you need on campus, come to us. We’ve got your back. College is an exciting time in your life and a chance to grow and develop. We’re proud to be able to support you during your education at UTPA. Go Broncs!!!
