The University of Texas at San Antonio Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at your school?


Lame, disappointing, school made for the unmotivated, filled with drop outs (somewhat true), 24/7 partying, predominantly Hispanic, etc.


That UTSA isn't a big campus. That there is no campus life, that there isn't a lot for students to get involved in.


Probably the most predominant stereotype about UTSA is that it's a commuter school. The image is that students come and go by car, with relatively few living on-campus or maintaining a solid on-campus presence. The stereotype about UTSA students is that a majority are there just as a stepping-stone to UT, or because they can't get in to UT.


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.
