Student Body at Northwest Vista College: Full Time Workers/ Parents – This school is ridiculously diverse. There are the fresh out of high school students, the sophomores, people with a career looking for education to start a different one, parents, middle aged people. Every race, religion, political view is found here. Its really like a big family

Academic Experience at Northwest Vista College: I'm an education major and i fairly enjoy the program. There is always help if you need it. It's easy to get more information about continuing the degree in 4 year institutions. The classes are great.

Academic Flexibility at San Antonio College: College and My Fustrations – being a student in college hastn been as easy as i tought it would be. my classes so far most of them have beeng good, ive had good prefessors with the exception of 2 of them . One of my biggest fustrations at san antonio college is when it come to the fincial aid office is always crowded, is one of the things i hate about that school. Also my 3rd semester i was really procrasinating and slacking off so i failed 3 of my classes and my gpa drop and in order for me to get financial aid i had to have a 2.5 and since my gpa is lower than that i cant get no financial aid. my parent have been struggling with money and cant pay for my classes, thats making me really fustrated and mad because i want to keep going to school.That was also the main reason i had to choose a community college instead of an university.

Campus Resources at Northwest Vista College: Helpful and Encouraging – The teachers are very helpful in providing the most information on advising and such. Landscaped beautifully and has a unique park and ride system in place for when there is no parking in campus parking lots.

Overall Experience at Northwest Vista College: Good for Now – My school is easy and simple. I dont go to any functions or events cause I only choose not to. I go to do my work and leave.

Academic Experience at Northwest Vista College: Academic Experience – Some professors just don't make life easy for us. But thats anywhere I suppose. Well on the other hand I truly believe some professors allow their personal life to conflict with their lectures and teachings. Making the academic experience here quite uncomfortable and satisfactory. But we do have those teachers that do care about our progress and give us the assistance that we need and its much appreciative.

Campus Resources at Northwest Vista College: Computer Network – Northwest Vista Community College provides very well, and reliable means of resources, especially when it comes to computers. The speed is exellent and efficient. The only snag that I can think of is that it's not quite updated and modern.But it's all I have and I suppose I have to make due.

Student Body at Northwest Vista College: Mostly Full Time Students – Mostly, all the students have full-time jobs or familes. They often have to juggle though school and work or families, but they still turn in their assingments on time. A lot of students are very social and love to make friends, which i like.

1 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid at Northwest Vista College: I had many problems with Financial Aid. The financial aid staff did a horrible job on telling the students when deadlines were due. Also, when I turned in everything on time before the deadlines were due, I still had problems on what day my financial aid money was coming in. I had to pay out of my own pocket to hold my classes for the upcoming semester. It took about half a semester to get my financial aid money to come in and to pay my tuition.

Majors at St. Philip's College: Admission is fairly simple, you need to provide transcripts whether they are your highschool ones or college transfer ones. Associates degrees are the top degrees offered at this school.

Campus Dining at St. Philip's College: Haven't Tried Campus Food – I have yet to try campus food. I'm usually not at school for a full day where I would need to purchase something to eat.

Parking at St. Philip's College: I never had to leave my car there, but I had used the parking for walk ins to get things or to pick up things. Parking was very easy to find the parking lot wasn't always packed with people. Ticketing and fines did happen a lot probably because people miss used it or someone did something unnecessary.

4 Recent Alumnus

Computers at St. Philip's College: They are perfectly safe and they have a good amount of speed. WiFi works great there and it is also safe.The printing I never did much of so I don't know. The Computer labs were always easy access to and their was always some one there to assist you. If you couldn't have access to the printers in the computer room you can easy go to the library.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility at San Antonio College: SAC offers a lot of classes online, and even some classes hybrid (blend of online and class). It was very easy to take classes that way.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience at San Antonio College: The administrative staff make it almost impossible to get help with class selection, financial aid and things of that nature. They don't care about the student in this aspect. You must go onto their main campus (regardless of which campus you are taking classes) to ask a simple question that could easily be answered over the telephone. Students are treated very poorly.

4 College Sophomore

Career Services at Northwest Vista College: Transfer Services – The only event I've attended while attending this school that deals with careers, was the Transfer Services for colleges. The advisors from those other schools did help me with choices for classes and information on what degree to choose for my career.

4 College Sophomore

Student Body at Northwest Vista College: Relaxed Atmosphere – My school contains scholars who are their to do their own thing. Most students are encouraged about school because of the availability of labs willing to tutor.

4 College Sophomore

Academic Experience at Northwest Vista College: Intended Choices – Currently, I am taking 5 classes and working on getting the basics out of the way for my kinesiology degree. The workload is not bad, yet the flex courses can get a bit overwhelming, other than that it feels good to be able to work towards what I want to graduate with.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academic Experience at San Antonio College: Most of the professors I had my first semester were very interested in the subject they were teaching and even more in what the students had to ad to the topic. They were easy to talk to and easy to work with

Student Body at San Antonio College: The average student at SAC? There is no average student. Everyone is different; there is no lack of diversity or acceptance. I've had classmates with Russian accents and classmates that have lived in San Antonio all of their lives. I've had classmates graduating from both highschool and college at the same time and I have had classmates that have been at SAC for 8 years (even though it's only a 2 year college). I've been chatted up by people I've never met before and made friends that I plan to keep in touch with until the day I die. Walking from class to class, you'll see everything from highschoolers to monks and nuns. And even the most intimidating students usually become friendly when approached.

Academic Experience at San Antonio College: I've began my education at San Antonio College at the age of 17 through the dual credit program and am no getting ready to transfer out now, 2 and a half years later. I've honestly enjoyed my experience at SAC. I made a lot of friends almost immediately; everyone is pretty friendly. You're almost guaranteed to make a few friends in at least one course per semester. The instructors vary. I've had some that were pompous, some that were boring, and some that were so amazing I'll remember them for rest of my life. There were some instructors that absolutely adored me, some that completely disliked me, some that ignored me, and some that never bothered to learn my name. All but 2 of them knew their subjects up and down though. The majority of them have their doctrate degree, will make time for you if just inquire and are good instructors that you will gain a great deal from. My experience with administration was not problematic until the SAC changed its domain for registration. It was an absolute nightmare. Classes were dropped, names were switched, course dates and times collided. It was complete chaos and they are just now getting all of the kinks worked out.

Student Body at San Antonio College: The student body make-up is awesome. A good friend of mine is a buddhist monk, whom i met in my government class. As you cruise the campus, you see musicians, international students from around the world, athletes, artists, and many more.

5 College Senior

Campus Resources at San Antonio College: There are a variety of resources from the biology lab to the computer lab to the writing center. The writing center guarantees a one letter upgrade after a couple of sessions with their tutors. Printing cost ten cents a page (black and white), but the network reliability and speed is excellent.

5 College Senior

Academic Experience at San Antonio College: The curriculum is broad. Class registration, financial aid, or any other school related issues are easily accessible on-line. In class, group projects are stressed as much as individual work and professors are knowledgeable,flexible and understanding, and use a variety of teaching methods.
