UTSA is a great school, and I write from the perspective primarily of an English student who has spent 4 years at UTSA. When I first transferred to UTSA, I thought it was perhaps just another school in San Antonio (our city is known for having a number of universities). However, the more time I spent at UTSA, the more I realized it was something special--not just as an R1 research university, but as a school overall. First of all, UTSA is pretty much one of the cheapest schools to go to in San Antonio aside from the community college SAC. However, in spite of being fairly cheap, it offers excellent education, and I quote one of my professors when I say that the teachers at UTSA are committed to providing the same quality of instruction that you might get at an Ivy-League school even though the school doesn't have the same resources in the form of private funding. The professors are invested not just in their own research, but the bringing up of a new generation of well-educated students. Second, opportunities are dime-a-dozen at UTSA, and as far as my own personal experience goes in the English M.A. program, it's clear that the people running the school are devoted to the students. I've talked to advisors for both graduate and undergraduate students, and they all are very invested in tailoring each student's individual college experience to whatever that student might need. From disability services to extra learning opportunities to simply letting a student choose their own, separate path to a degree or other certification, UTSA staff is ready and willing to provide a totally unique educational experience to anyone enrolled. Third and finally, there's a great community at UTSA, and it's extremely common in the city of San Antonio to see UTSA bumper stickers and merchandise all over the place. People really care about showing their pride for having gone to UTSA or having family who attended UTSA, and it's clear to me that there's very good reason for such immense excitement over the school.
I have always thought of The University of Texas at San Antonio very intriguing. I wish to be the first person in my family to attend a university and graduate with a master's degree. When I first stepped on campus as a 7th grader, I was so astonished on how flourished and amazing the campus was! It felt very calm and relaxing to witness students doing their own things and communicating with each other as they performed extra curricular activities.
It's really BIG, I will enjoy walking around and getting to know where my future classes are located and meeting interesting people, the people were really nice and friendly when I asked to see where the science building was located and the campus was refreshing.
I think that UTSA is a great school with a variety of opportunities. There is always room for something and it could surprise you in many ways. Wouldn't believe the things that go on during the week, they are always busy. I think that it is crazy how much can go on through organizations and involvement with each office.

Look, stop worrying about what other people think of you. Stop letting people think for you. Do what you want to do and choose a career you will love doing for the rest of your life. You have to step up and take care of yourself and learn to do things on your own before you go off to college because noone is going to walk you through it. Just believe in your abilities and you will do great.
Very diverse, some care about school while others don't, some do very well and others fail....
The University of Texas at San Antonio offers a full range of degree programs to students in all economic strata.
The problem of space seems to jump out at me the most. It is always very crowded and, at certain times, getting parking is impossible. Also, the smoking that is allowed on campus is something that is enjoyed by all the smokers on the campus. When passing between buildings, the ambient smoke makes me feel like I'm choking.
A person who intrested in business and engineering should really consider of attending UTSA!
My school is best known for the Engineering program. The school recently built a new building, to further the learning capabilities for Engineering majors.
The expenses of this school because they are really affordable and the school costs are not very expensive.
someone who is outgoing and likes meeting new people and trying new things. our school spirit is also on the rise so if you like sports and want to be a part of something you should really look no further than UTSA
I wish I had known more about cheaper off campus housing and APA writing style.
The truth is that nothing is arrogant for me . I like how everything is organized. I just tell my friends how each day is a special day for me on school.
The University of Texas @ San Antonio is a great school it isn't too big, but at the same time it's not a tiny college where everyone knows everyone. This school is growing and I love being apart of a great community where the professors and staff actually care about the students. There is always something to do, because of all the programs and the location of the school.
Students at UTSA generally fall into two categories: The first, students who just don't want to be here. These students had no intentions of attending this college while in high school and ended up here because they couldn't get into their first, second, or eighteenth choice. By default, they ended up at UTSA and aren't happy about it. The second category doesn't mind being here, but generally underachieve. Classes filled with these students end up with 5-10% of registered students showing up to class. Put simply, the students are the most frustrating part of UTSA.
I am going to star this summer, so I can give you this information next session
It's a perfect campus that offers a wide variety of majors, and encourages student growth.
At UTSA there is no typical stereotype; we have it all! There are frat guys, sorority girls, geeks, you name it. Just walking around campus you can see a multitude of student organizations, each a self-proclaimed sterotype from the Atheist Agenda and Campus Crusaders for Christ to the ROTC and the Association of Chinese Culture; there is definitely somewhere for everyone at UTSA.
I've been to a number of private universities labeled as "stellar institutions," but I have to give UTSA my approval. Don't be fooled by its label as a "public institution" with high acceptance rates. No SANE PERSON has ever said that a great education requires arrogant professors and failing grades. Yes, admittedly, UTSA has its arrogant professors, but they are avoidable (sometimes). UTSA becomes a second home, despite the laziness of its advisers and lackluster campus decorum. Teachers are reputable and the food is great (not much variety, though). The student body is heavily diverse; I see Indians, Asians, Hispanics, and Whites at every corner.
Take it upon yourself to excel as English majors. Don't expect professors to carry you to the top. Choose your courses WISELY. This is the most important advice that I can give you. If you want to make the most out of your undergraduate career at UTSA, then choose the right professors to assist you in achieving your goals. There are amazing professors from Duke, UPenn, and Stanford that aren't condescending fools.
It has a lot of sports that you can be active.
I have been here two years and have really just been in the engineering area of the school. I don't have to much input as to what stereotypes are out there about UTSA.
We only have one real "dorm" at UTSA. Chisholm Hall: it is one big open room that two people share with a private bathroom (no community restrooms). The other on campus housing options are on campus apartments. Laurel Village and Chaparral Village are fairly new and very nice housing options. Each person gets their own room and shares a restroom with one other person. There is also a very spacious common area with a refrigerator. Both of these places are in very close proximity to class. Lastly, University Oaks is an older on campus apartment. They have a full kitchen and alcohol is allowed if you are of age. It is a little further walk to class but it is still a nice option.
We have a Chili's on campus, a Burger King, Panda Express, Taco Cabana, Subway, Extreme Pita, Starbucks, Smoothie King and a cafeteria. So many yummy options!
