UTEP has prepared plenty of events for students, faculty, alumni, and the El Paso community to enjoy throughout the month of July as they are looking for ways to spend their summer. Below you will find what is happening, when and where throughout the campus. 

UTEP Dinner Theatre’s ‘Head Over Heels’ the Musical 

The UTEP Dinner Theater is kicking off July with “Head Over Heels,” a new musical comedy. It is a love story that follows a royal family on a journey to save their kingdom from extinction, only to see the key to their survival lies within their hearts. The musical features music from the 1980s all-female rock band, The Go-Gos. 

The musical will be at 7 p.m. July 8 at the UTEP Dinner Theatre and tickets may be purchased by calling 915-747-6060 or by visiting Ticketmaster. The musical will continue throughout the month of July. 

Miner Caravan continues throughout July 

The Miner Caravan continues as UTEP Strategic Communications works hard to sell out the first football game of the season. The coaches and student-athletes are making stops around town to sell out their home opener Aug. 27 against their first opponent, North Texas.  

At each of these events, Miner fans may purchase tickets for only $9.15. Miner Caravan will be making stops at the El Paso Chihuahuas game vs. Round Rock July 16, Cielo Vista Mall July 23, and Camp Cohen Water Park July 30.
