Centennial Museum Exhibits

Visiting Exhibits

As part of its on going Centennial Exhibit Series, the Centennial Museum and Welcome Center will present the new exhibit,

“UTEP in the News” features a collection of newsarticles and television footage about UTEP from local media outlets and UTEP’sown student-led publication, TheProspector, which has been in existence since 1915. Newspapers like the El Paso Times, El Paso Herald-Post and El Paso Inc.  are represented, as well the TV stations KVIA(ABC), KTSM (NBC), KFOX (FOX) and KINT (Univision). KINT also sponsored an interactiveanchor desk for the exhibit.

The exhibit demonstrates the bond between the Universityand the El Paso community. Through the years, the community has celebratedUTEP’s milestones and has followed the school through its different namechanges, different administrations and, of course, the 1966 NCAA Men’sBasketball Championship.



“A Century of Transformations,” follows the Texas School of Mines and Metallurgy, which opened as a mining school in 1914, and evolved into the University of Texas at El Paso, a nationally recognized research university. It highlights the University’s rich history and traditions and also highlights significant milestones, distinguished alumni and powerful international connections. The exhibit will be on display throughout the Centennial Celebration and will come down on Jan. 15, 2015.
