4 College Senior

Facilities: Always more room for improvement. I believe more students would benefit from a gym.

5 College Senior

Facilities: BUA is one of the best schools I've known. There is always pom for improvement but the school officials strive and work hard so that all the students will continue their education and go on to receive a higher education in their field of interest. I fell comfortable here. I am welcome and I don't suffer from peer pressure from anybody. It is a great place to be at.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are not permitted on school grounds. So when found, it is dealt with seriousness. I've heard of one count of a drug use situation and I know that the person (people) involved was dismissed from school.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: On-campus security is something we are all thankful for. The school strives to create a secure environment for all who come to campus, whether it be a student, faculty, staff or visitor.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: One of the things that BUA strives for is Integrity of Character. They also want to create a safe environment for the current and new students.

2 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: The school is on the South-side of San Antonio. Unfortunately, it is one of the least best sides of the city. Houses and apartments aren't at their best. A little run down.

3 College Senior

Transportation: The school shuttle has its own schedule for coming back and forth from school to housing and vice-versa. However, there are times when students have to wait some time before it makes another round.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Tex-Mex is a big thing in San Antonio. However, you can fins Italian, Steak houses, Mediterranean, Chinese, Indian, other hispanic cuisines, etc. There is great variety.

3 College Senior

Weather: San Antonio is humid and hot. That's the only thing I don't like. However, it depends on tastes. Others comment on how they like the local weather. It depends on who you ask.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Dorm life is like any other College dorm life. It's fun and you make life-long friends. The internet could be better. Other than that, each housing facility has it's kitchen and living/dining area and two bathrooms per dorm (4 bedrooms, up to 8 people maximum per dorm). The housing team continues to strive to make housing assignment painless.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: I have been able to apply for Financial Aid and I get help each time. Had it not been for FAFSA, I would not be able to continue my education. The Financial Aid office is always helpful in this area.

2 College Senior

Athletics: I believe it could be better. As of now, there is a soccer team that won the ACASA Fall 2013 championship. There is much potential there. However, I believe that there needs to be more push towards sports programs.

4 College Senior

Diversity: BUA has a Hispanic background which helps with the racial environment on campus. They do not make you feel like a minority. You are part of the BUA family.

3 College Junior

Majors: It is very easy to get into this school considering that it is a private university, the only minus I would give to the school is that it barely became a University and they only have 3 programs availble.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I have never had any problem while here in this campus, we dont hear nothing about robberies or campus crime. I feel safe being here it is a good environment it is a strictly drug free campus including drinking.

3 College Sophomore

Computers: The Technology at BUA leaves something to be desired. The Computers are up to date, but the Internet is so slow and so often has viruses, that most of the time it's just better to use your phone if you really need to be on the internet. Luckily, the dorms are on a different Wi Fi system and it's much faster than in the library and around the class rooms. Also, Wi Fi is free so that's a plus.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: BUA is an incredibly diverse school when you consider the Economic and Ethnic backgrounds of the students that attend. We have many international students, mostly from South America, but a few from Europe and Asia as well. Religiously, obviously BUA is a Baptist University and virtually everyone that attends is a Protestant Christian. Overall, I love my school and the diversity is so refreshing. I'm a student who came from a largely Hispanic and Caucasian small town, so to be taking classes with people from the other side of the world and from other ethnic backgrounds is an eye opening and learning experience.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: There is not a strictness around here becasue it is a christian environment so there is no drinking around or smoking. no drugs are allowed.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus – Everything is good you dont have to worry about anything it is at a fair price and if you encounter a problem everybody is willing to help you.

Athletics: As of right know BUA does not have any sports but are looking forward to starting some.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of stores and restaurants around us where everybody can go to buy their personal stuff. it is not far way pretty much you can walk anywhere.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: We have a team that is not real good but this semester we just a new coach from Germany and he has great plans for us. Another thing I like about this team is that they always callaborate toghether and never give up.

5 College Freshman

Campus Dining: Bernards is one of the best creole foods we have at Baptist University of the Americas. They serve the best and treat you how a customer is to be treated.

5 College Freshman

Parking: parking space is available for everybody and it doesnt cost much.
