Our Experiences

“Dr. Hugo Rodriguez provided a very challenging learning experience which was refreshing. Dr. Provenzano also encouraged us to learn for ourselves and think deeper as to why certain processes occur. Dr. Michael Lehker had a great teaching method where his case studies forced us to look at microbiology and learn how to apply it in the field.”

"Starting college at the age of 16 with the Mathematics and Science Academy was difficult at first. I was in a different environment that took time to adapt to. Once I developed good study habits and time management skills, I really started to excel in my education, and I feel very proud and accomplished to be graduating with my bachelor's degree at the age of 20. I have worked very hard these last four years and to finally be graduating is a very rewarding experience."

"Mr. Lytle, my forensics professor, always believed in me, always inspired me to be the best person I could be. Dr. W. F. Strong, a communications professor, really opened my eyes to a different version of the world, always challenging me to think outside the box. Dr. Cook, also a communications professor, has not only taught me the meaning of leadership, but has really made me grow as an individual, and for that I’m eternally grateful."

Yvette A. Martinez, Brownsville

"Life did not stop when I began the doctorate. My son was four years old and my daughter was two years old. My greatest struggle was to be fully present in their lives, be a mother like my mother had been to me. I started the program as a full time mom and full time student. I finished the program as a full time student, with a full time job, and striving to be the best mom for my kids."

"I'm a single mother of 5 children with a full time job so it was difficult making it to class sometimes. The professors were great, very patient and understanding. My advice to students is to stay focused on the destination…not the journey."

"I carry my children in my heart all the time and I do this for them. I want my children to look up to me and see that there are no limits to what you can do with your life. I believe that UTB is an excellent University that gives mothers like me the opportunity to receive an education and stay home with your family. "
