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.
Review University of Texas - San Antonio
UTSA is the school that I currently attend. In fall 2016, I was a Pre-Nursing major with the hopes of transferring after 2-years and attending the University of Texas Health and Science Center to finish out my degree. However with the help of my advisor I changed my major and I could not be happier! This university has taught me so much about myself and where I want to head when I finish college and ultimately decide what I want to do for the rest of my life. The professors here are always willing to help you out with anything that is happening inside the classroom.
UTSA provides a genuine college experience for its students. While attending this school, I gained a vast perspective for education and the nursing profession. The courses were challenging but very beneficial. Student life is amazing at UTSA! You truly can network and create relationships that last a lifetime on this campus! There's literally an organization for any and everyone!
