  • Hello Friends!

    When I arrived in the West Texas in July 2017, one thing became clear to me very quickly: this is a great place to call home!  The Permian Basin is one of the fastest-growing, culturally vibrant, economically invigorated regions of the country—full of industry, culture, and wide open spaces.  

    At the academic heart of this area sits The University of Texas Permian Basin—which, every year, delivers smart, savvy leaders across the U.S. Any student who wants to shape the future of West Texas and beyond should know that UT Permian Basin is their best option—an affordable, modern school that thinks large and lives local.
