Well actually they are just pictures of the Sun Bowl, the new UTEP parking garage, and the new Hilton Garden Inn, that was just built on UTEP property.

The Sun Bowl (capacity: 52,000)





They were working on the scoreboard, probably getting it ready for Sept 1st.


The Larry K. Durham Center



The new parking garage, next to the Sun Bowl, it is practically done, I think the right side of it, is already being used. (this garage should help out the parking situation for football games at UTEP)



The new Hilton Garden Inn, it was built in the same Bhutanese architectural style as UTEP, it was also built on UTEP property.



I know harry o asked for some pics of the Sun Bowl, so there are a few. I hope ya guys and gals like em. Next time I'll get the artificial turf on the field.

Thanks for the great pics Chuco....Its got me fired up for Sept 1 when UTEP vs U.New Mexico as that should be a great game in a great stadium..

I wonder if the person who posted the picture a while back of the concrete part of the freeway and called EP ugly if he's seen all the different pictures you've posted of the Palm Trees, Medical Center, Franklins and Utep etc.....

Thanks Again !! Harry!

The Sun Bowl and surrounding buildings look great. I'm ashamed to say I'm a UNM (Univ. of Nada Mucho) grad. So, I gotta say GO MINERS!! on 9/1.

Yeap! he got those pictures from Texas Freeway.Com and that person doing the documentation on El Paso freeways made that remark that El Paso was the most ugliest city in the country according to his opinion.
The guy from Columbus is clueless, but that picture with the open medium is a propossed freeway in NE El Paso.
El Paso is probably one of the most interesting cities in the world because of it's international status, as far as been ugly, theres some blight but theres alot more nice parts to it than say, ugly parts.

Very Nice Photos. UTEP is a very pretty college. I love the style of the buildings, and that parking garage does not look like a Parking Garage.. that is outstanding.

One of a kind colleges with Bhutanese style architecture about all buildings on campus except maybe one has this same style, but all are different patterns and looks so all buildings are not look alikes, they have their own distinction, even some stores in the vicinity have incorporated the same architecture as on campus.
even the parking garage, how about that? UTEP is an El Paso Treasure.

I agree.. have you looked at pictures of where they got the building style and architecture. Looks a lot like El Paso in some respects. So it was a natural fit.
