University of Texas - San Antonio Reviews
The teachers and advisors all are engaged and care about your future and goals. You will surely feel supported and challenged at UTSA. The environment and campus, for the most part, are clean and lively. There are a lot of organizations and clubs to keep you busy on campus and in the community. The campus is also conveniently located across from a nice mall/outlet stocked with everything you need and could want. The area is safe and student-friendly. This is only the main campus. There is are also two other campuses that are also located in areas that would be beneficial to an immersive learning environment. Obviously, you may run into problems with faculty and perhaps other students or maybe how the campus is run but I personally haven't run into many problems that have truly inconvenienced me or made me regret my decision in going to UTSA. I think UTSA gives a lot of opportunities and potential to create many beloved college memories. Overall, I love UTSA and being a roadrunner!
I love UTSA! The faculty is diverse and as a result, so are the classes. Very interesting courses come up. The student body is also diverse providing for classes with interesting conversations from differing perspectives. The buildings are all in good condition. There is also a snack and supplies kiosk or two in every building which is very convenient! The library is also very convenient with many textbooks provided and easy accessibility to find certain texts.
First and foremost, they help you on your way to your career not only by excellent academics but with other resources. For example, due to their affiliation with Handshake I am currently on a paid internship with my dream company. They also affiliate with other companies and host career/job/internship fairs, and offer great opportunities for students who want to work on campus. Professors are top notch, as well as facilities. Four stars instead of five for their aspiration for research, rather than on real life skills in their academics. By the way, Subway in the cafeteria carries Brisket sub! Go Texas!
