Everything I need to do is easy to find out and easy to accomplish - that is, I have simple and exhaustive to-do lists generated for me personally, and if for some reason I'm having an issue, the campus staff are incredibly helpful, even if my issues have nothing to do with them! I spent my first year on campus and fell so deeply in love with campus life that I'm returning to the same campus to continue my education. The meal plan was one of the best investments I made there - what can beat a huge and diverse buffet with extended hours? I've only had awesome professors so far - each and every one of them is always willing to spend a little extra time with me or respect my need to have a lecture/project sent to me remotely under special circumstances. I've never encountered a safety issue of any sort on campus. When my car broke down (repeatedly, in my parking space), a division of campus services was always there to get me going again for free!

UTSA is a great school. For being a young university, it has had no trouble of catching up to other great universities in Texas. The academics have risen ranks to become some of the best in the state, and they have done a great job in hiring the right professors, preparing dorms/housing, creating a beautiful campus, and having a variety of delicious food on campus. This has all been done while keeping the campus a safe zone. If there ever feels like there is trouble, the university handles it in an exceptional matter. In UTSA, you meet people from many different kinds of cultures, and there is always something fun to do. Although our football team is not the best, we have just qualified to our first bowl game last season! This season our team looks promising.
I like that there are many clubs to join making it easy to make friends with similar interests. The events are fun to go to, and to join if given the chance. My only issue is the dorms, specifically Chisholm Hall. With my experience, fire alarms had gone off too often, and majority of the times they had gone off at night at one to three in the morning. The showers also leak water out onto the floor if the curtain doesn't block it correctly. The wifi within Chisholm Hall is also very slow compared to other dorms. Other than that the rest of campus is great!
