The University of Texas of the Permian Basin
Odessa, United States - Texas


University description (as per official university website)


In 1973, "The Sting" won the Oscar for the best picture and "The Way We Were" was named the best song. "All in the Family" was the number one television show and "Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Old Oak Tree" was a hit for Tony Orlando and Dawn.

It was also the year, in September to be exact, that the first students sat in the first classes offered at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin. Thirty-seven went on to graduate the following semester. As an upper-level university, UT Permian Basin filled a unique niche in the public higher education system in Texas. It would offer only junior, senior, and graduate-level courses from 1973-1991. In the fall of 1991, UT Permian Basin became a traditional four-year university with a curriculum that ranges from freshman to graduate courses.
The First Students

In September 1973, Midland and Odessa's goal for an upper-level school was realized when 1,011 students registered. One of those students remembered registration as a "piece of cake." He added, "The faculty bent over backwards to accommodate the students."

Odessa' s enthusiasm for the new university was apparent to students new to the area. Another young transfer student, who moved to Odessa in 1973, was struck by the city's pride in UT Permian Basin, comparing the citizens to proud parents with a new baby. She had been thrilled to find that she could complete the degree she had begun at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos. "The timing [for UT Permian Basin's start-up] was perfect," she said.

Another of the first students that fall recalled with appreciation the one-on-one interaction with the faculty. "We even helped in the interviews for hiring some of the faculty," he said. "The administration took our recommendations seriously."
