I truly have enjoyed my time at this school because of the immense opportunities it has to offer. Whether it be grow academically, grow spiritually, grow in your group of friends, UTSA makes it possible. I've been able to use majority of the resources it has to offer, and will probably end up graduating without having tried them all! There are so many things to do. You'll never end up bored. You'll find people with the same interests as you, and you'll be able to share many wonderful moments with them! Professors are understanding and kind, yet stern and ready to teach. UTSA, overall, has improved in many areas, and its three campuses allow students to visit different areas of San Antonio and still be connected with their school. UTSA is the place to be! GO ROADRUNNERS!

UTSA is a great school to attend. There are a lot of clubs and organizations that allow you to be active on campus! I stayed in Alvarez and loved it! I was able to meet so many people just by bumping into them in the hallway. The professors are understanding and are accessible outside of the classroom. I recommend you attend their office hours if you don't understand the lecture or assignment for that day. UTSA also has many outside resources, such as the Writing Center, that will help you if your professor isn't available. Some classes have SI leaders! SI is helpful because you work in a group with other classmates and review parts of the lecture that were tough to understand during class. The campus community is friendly and diverse! They definitly make you feel welcome on your first day!
I absolutely loved UTSA! I am an extremely proud Alumni, who got the best college experience I could've ever asked for. I'm a first generation student who proudly earned a Bachelor's in Psychology and am now enrolled in my first semester of nursing school. I was a Resident Assistant, a member of the Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority, a club soccer player, an intramural referee and flag football player, and a full-time student. I had great SI's, TA's, and amazing professors. My advisor was actually great as well. 100% recommend UTSA to everyone!
