4 College Junior

Overall Experience: What you learn in BUA, you will not learn it anywhere else.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Professors are great as we'll s the quality of the classes. If you are a Chistian, remember that If God brings you to BUA, he will help you with the money and your responsibility is to study hard. if you are a good student, teachers till notice you and recommend you to different opportunities. Focus is essential here.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Great transitional experience and adaptation.

College Junior

Greek Life: I don't think BUA has a "Greek life."

3 College Junior

Athletics: Sports are not a big part if BUA. There are soccer and basketball games, but since the school is small and not a lot of steep dents play sports, it is hard to form a team for each. If the school finds out that there are enough students attending the sport practices, they decide to sign up to a league and compete, otherwise it is just for fun.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Here are some apartment complexes around BUA, but for a single student that would not be an affordable option. Living in campus is the best options unless the students are from San Antonio.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Around BUA a student can find restaurants like Chick-Fil-A, Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Mama Margie's, many others and the HEB to buy food and groceries. The students can walk, but it would be a but far. Usually students give each other rides to the Market or a restaurant. Downtown is about 10 to15 minutes away, but the dinning options are definitely much higher.

5 College Junior

Administration: BUA has a great and organized administration. You know who to go to for a specific need or suggestion. Because the school is small, we know which authority is in charge of a certain position. BUA has soriritual end emotional counselors within the staff members that can be approached by students in times of stress or trouble. All the processes are easy and guided correcky by the administration. If someone is not doing the job right, the students may speak up to complain or suggest new ideas.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: BUA offers many scholarship applications and financial aid office gives a great service to the students, sending them emails about available scholarships and job opportunities.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: BUA has a cafeteria where the students can get free lunch from 7-9 AM and for lunch they can get sandwiches, salads, snacks, sweet tea, sodas and water. It is not a huge cafeteria, but it is adequate for the school size. The food is good, but after a while students get tired of the same stuff. The best thing to do to enjoy the meal plan is to cook at home! And eat in the cafeteria only in certain and urgent occasions.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: BUA housing is comfortable. The process to live in the apartments is not complicated at all for single students. In the campus, there is not much entertainment, but the school is close to streets that have much to offer. The dorms are not the best quality anymore because of all the students that have lived there, but they are still in good condition.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: 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

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

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

Administration: 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.
