It has a lot of sports that you can be active.
The most popular groups at UTSA, like several schools, is definitely the Greek community(sororities and fraternities)!
I met my closest friends in my most difficult classes! There's nothing better and more necessary in college than a study group!!
If I'm awake at 2am on a Tuesday, I'm definitely getting homework done!
There are a number of highly active clubs and organizations at UTSA. Greek life also has a healthy presence with a number of fraternities / sororities ranging from traditional to progressive in style. UTSA's political and religious organizations frequently arrange for guest speakers to speak on campus. Student attendence for on-campus sports can be hit or miss, but considering the current (though temporary) lack of a Div. I football team, support for second-tier sports isn't so bad. Basketball, in particular, is pretty closely followed by many of the students. The party scene at UTSA is well-present but not excessive, and seems to provide a good counterbalance for academics for most students. Otherwise, on-campus life is less that stellar, but steadily and quickly improving.
I don't have much time to spend outside of academic work to know who the popular groups are here on campus. Currently I am secretary of Tau Beta Pi Engineering Honor Society and President of the Society of Women Engineers (SWE). Tau Beta Pi just recently got started not to long ago and hasn't really taken off real strongly just yet, but we are working on it. And SWE keeps me extremely busy. We volunteers and many events and try to get out to high schools and middle schools to talk to young students about engineering and hopefully get them excited about it. I live an hour away...so I have no clue about dorm life, or athletic events, or speakers, or theater. I am also engaged...so the dating scene is something I cannot comment on either. Some of my closest friends here at UTSA have been in the same classes as me for the past 2 years, and the first class we had together is where I met them. 2 AM on a Tuesday night....last year I would probably be up doing homework or writing a report. This year I am definitely in bed because I get up at 4 AM. Traditions here at UTSA that I have heard about or maybe seen sign on are Fiesta, Homecoming, and a few other events that happen every year that I can't think of right now. I don't know when or how often people party here. Last weekend on Saturday I was here on campus meeting with my senior design group from 8AM to 7PM and Sunday I did homework and saw a movie with my fiance. If I actually get to spend a Saturday with my fiance, we usually go see a movie, or go bowling, or even just sit at our house and play cards or something simple. We don't drink that much. Just being with each other is good enough for us. Well since I don't live on campus, I do everything off campus. But during the week, all I do is school work, whether I am here in a lab or at home. Some things that I do like to do are go hunting, go fishing, ride four wheelers, playing games, watching movies, and DEFINITELY spending as much time with my family as I can (which usually is about once or twice a month).
