I love this university so much! Their Environmental science program Is amazing and very close nit. There are always tutoring, volunteer, and internship opportunities being brought to our attention. On the flip side people with bigger majors like Biology and Engineering have bigger classes and the teachers come off as less passionate. Overall I highly recommend this institution.

Overall, I really had such an interesting and fun experience involving the courses and the professors at utsa. Each classroom was different! I had all types of size classrooms from a small class to huge auditorium classes. I like how each teacher had a different way of teaching the subject material like they aren't all the same. Each professor taught their class in their own unique way that they feel and asked their students in what ways helps them individually learn more from their classrooms. Coming from a private school that had the same students in the same number classroom size, I felt this whole new transition was definitely one that I come to like more then the regular day to day classroom size basis. I am personally more fond of small classes, because then I can connect better with my teachers & they can get to know my personality and not be seen as just another student in their classroom. I also though like the big classrooms cause i have less distraction from my peers in being close to them if they continue to talk during the classroom session. I feel that overall the professors are very friendly and the courses assignments are hard yet challenging enough for me to overcome it. Each course and teacher are liked or disliked by each student differently, so it just comes to how the student sees the class.
UTSA is where I found my home away from home. I thought it was a sub-par college, and honestly it wasn't my first choice, but after coming here I can confidently say I would rather be here than anywhere else. My professors are kind, caring, and passionate about their fields of expertise, the classes are rigorous but manageable (I'm in the Honors College so I may have a slightly different experience), and my fellow students are some of the kindest, funniest, most motivated and supportive people I have ever met. I love UTSA!
