My experience with the professors and other staff members at UTSA has been excellent. My academic advisor is efficient and cheerful, and all of my professors have actually been invested in my success. The facilities are always clean, and there are plenty of food options available on campus. The only thing I would like to change is the process for scheduling student organization events, as it's lengthy and confusing, which makes reserving rooms difficult. However, I have had a wonderful time at UTSA overall and look forward to graduating!

The one thing I loved the most about UTSA is the people that come here, including the students and the staff in general. Everyone is really open-minded and all-around nice. The campus is also very beautiful, full of resources for students and professor who push you to become better every day. Another thing I really like about my school is that there are always events going happening on campus, school spirit is tangible, all around and always present. The Roadrunner nation is strong, proud, and united. Birds Up!
UTSA is a huge campus! There are tons of educational, extracurricular, and self improvement activities. While I've been attending this institute I failed to take advantage of all the opportunities surrounding myself, so as of now I'm focusing on discovering everything I've been missing out on and learning about myself along the way.
