4 College Junior

Campus Resources at San Antonio College: The computer network is very good and reliable, and there is wireless access but when accessing the wireless, it runs very slow. The computers with direct access however run very smoothly and I have yet to encounter a problem.

5 College Junior

Student Body at Northwest Vista College: I've met so many different people at Northwest Vista. A lot of full time workers, part time, gay, straight, religious, non-religious, many different ethnicities and we all talk to each other regardless of our differences. I have a lot of much older friends with kids and also younger friends who are barely just starting in school.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness at St. Philip's College: The campus police are always around. They are friendly, understandable, easy to talk to and are always easily to locate. The no tolerance rule on campus is truly a no tolerance campus.

3 College Sophomore

Computers at St. Philip's College: The computers here on campus are realty available. All computers have the essential word, power point, and excel, thanks to the college having these essential function on these computers give a student the ability to start and finish assignments.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Resources at San Antonio College: Definitely love the atmosphere. Better access to facilities but some professors make you feel like your in high school. This isn't high school. It's college. Two completely different atmospheres.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources at San Antonio College: Library facilities are ok. Definitely a lot better than the last school I was at.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Resources at San Antonio College: The computers sometimes lose your work an you have to start all over
and the wifi doesn't work everywhere. It's good in some places and slow in others.

Nightlife at St. Philip's College: The nightlife here on campus is dull and not great at all. I go to a technical college that is a sub campus of the main campus. The male to female ratio is 50-1 being subtle about the situation. Most of the students attending are older males and females in their mid 20 to late 40's, with some high school graduates in the mix. The main subject taught on this campus are Aviation Sciences, Auto body work and repair, Pluming and Electrical work. The only time females are on campus are for Culinary Arts and for the Nursing Program.

4 College Sophomore

Parking at St. Philip's College: Parking on our camps have more space that people could park nicely and from where you park to walk to your class it takes 3 to 5 minutes. In additions, parking are available.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships at St. Philip's College: My financial aid in this year was little difficult to me received. I took final exam which I fail in one class, so they put my financial aid in suspensions. But I thank God I wrote statement explained why I did not pass, but after two month , they put me back in financial aid. The tips that I have used, I could go in financial aid office to make sure that i am on financial aid or how everything going.

Local Atmosphere at St. Philip's College: San Antonio is a huge and with lots to offer. It is a safety city that I never saw before. People working together especially students. It has good sports if you like to play an sport. They have basketball, baseball, and tennis. Also students are respectful.

Academic Experience at Northwest Vista College: They, the teachers, really do spew out everything they need you to know. In all the classes I've taken, even the ones I don't like, they have helped me thoroughly and explain things that you would need to know at any other school in particular. I really believe it is up to the student to get the work done and understand it by using your resources, including classmates and teachers. That is how you truly succeed. The curriculum is fine, with most teachers not requiring the textbook as much because the information is free online, and, mostly, because the revised edition of a certain book costs too much. All other facets of the school run relatively well.

3 College Student

Career Services at Northwest Vista College: The school's focus seems to be to help the newer students. When you know the system and how they operate, you are then able to get their attention by manipulating them into seeing that you are just as valuable, if not more, than the incoming students, and should be dealt with as professionally as their job dictates.

Academic Flexibility at San Antonio College: I appreciate the amount of online classes available here. I do wish there was more availabillity though as these do fill up quickly. Since I had an issue being recommended to take a class I did not need and was told I had to take as part of my degree plan by the time I figured this out and brought it to the attention of the school all the online flex 2 (later half of the semester) courses I needed where already full. I feel that the school does not offer adequate support when an error is made on their part.

Tuition & Financial Aid at San Antonio College: The financial aid office here is a mess. I have received so many different responses to the same question when calling in. There is almost always a wait as well. For someone that is busy working, with children, or for whom it is inconvenient to come to campus it is a major endeavor to come to campus to have to wait and then discuss with someone in person. I had a counselor tell me that I needed a few classes more than I actually did for my degree plan completion. I did not catch these mistakes partly because the time total I have been in school and the school's degree plan progess tool malfunctioning. When I did discover that I was in a class that I had already received credit for years ago I was told, after speaking with the department chair that the only person who had authority to drop me from the class (as it was after the census date) would be the vice president. I filled out the required petitiion along with the documentation that the counselor had indeed given me the wrong information. The form stated that I would receive a response in 2-4 weeks. I also emailed my professor the same day. Since I receive full financial aid I know if I or my professor withdraws me from the class this could affect future financial aid awards. I heard back from the office after about 2 weeks after I submitted the petition only to be told that I would have to repay about $700 to the school for the class. I was willing to be placed in an onine class that I need for my degree plan, but it seemed that they did not want to admit to their mistake or help me rather letting me spin my wheels doing a lot of work in a class I do not in fact need. I am thoroughly dissatisfied with the school because of this and also lack of information regarding financial aid deadline which prevented me from taking summer courses this past year.

Online Courses at San Antonio College: They are pretty well formatted. The new canvas learning system seems to be better than the old blackboard format though this is my first semester taking online courses so I am not an expert. There was a problem having the activity and quiz scores linked to the school's site. They said this was a legal issue they were working on, but it seems like this should have been worked out before the launch. It is nothing that bothers me too much as I can always see my grades on the ebook site and the instructor has assured us she sees them and will manually enter them for the time being.

Campus Resources at Northwest Vista College: Many resources such as writing labs, free tutor labs, and open computer labs to ensure our success.

Weather at St. Philip's College: Most of the time it is humid. But with fall just starting, it has cooled down a bit. It is getting better as the year goes on.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources at San Antonio College: I have used the Access center and they are very helpful!!!

3 College Senior

Academic Flexibility at San Antonio College: I had to change Alamo colleges to get my degree. It was not as flexible as I had hoped when getting assistance at NorthWest Vista. San Antonio College is much further for me so I have a harder time getting things done.

College Senior

Career Services at San Antonio College: I have not seen post-graduate services for students.

3 College Senior

Campus Resources at Northwest Vista College: The computer network is fine and speed is great, although sometimes we experience minor problems, but who doesn't? Anyone could get access to the wifi. If students would like to print papers on campus, each page is 10 cents. It doesn't sound like much, but those 10 cents add up. Getting a personal printer would be necessary.

4 College Senior

Campus Resources at Northwest Vista College: In my school there is a gym. The gym is not too big, but it has the basic needs. There is also a room to play games like: ping ball, air hockey, and fussball. The drama department has a good size stage. Music majors can practice playing different pianos. Also, my school offers Starbucks coffee which is definitely a plus!
