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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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!

5 College Senior

Campus Resources at Northwest Vista College: The school that I attend has so many opportunities. Everyday there are clubs outside trying to get students to join, so that they can get involved into extracurricular activities. Currently they are building a 5 story car garage, which will proved more parking spaces. My school has much diversity. I would definitely recommend others to go to Northwest Vista College.

Student Body at San Antonio College: Seeing as to how I attend JECA and am a high school student, I am different from the regular students. What I have seen is a wide variety of students. Some are prepared and ready to work while others are there to just get to the next level. Overall nice people.

4 College Senior

Academic Flexibility at San Antonio College: The reason I chose this college is because I applied and got into a program called "Judson Early College Academy". It is a high school that is connected to Northeast Lakeview Community College, but we as students are registered as students at San Antonio College. I gave the rating of an A because I always feel like the administration get involved with the students, ready to give advice and make you feel welcome. The teachers as well are very welcoming and give you many resources to help you with whatever you're struggling with.

Campus Resources at Northwest Vista College: The facilities on campus are pretty nice. Everything is well kept. The gym is very nice, and so is the exercise equipment. There is a student center that everyone hangs out in between classes, and there is also a Cafe with tables outside which I like to do work at.
