Overall, I really had such an interesting and fun experience involving the courses and the professors at utsa. Each classroom was different! I had all types of size classrooms from a small class to huge auditorium classes. I like how each teacher had a different way of teaching the subject material like they aren't all the same. Each professor taught their class in their own unique way that they feel and asked their students in what ways helps them individually learn more from their classrooms. Coming from a private school that had the same students in the same number classroom size, I felt this whole new transition was definitely one that I come to like more then the regular day to day classroom size basis. I am personally more fond of small classes, because then I can connect better with my teachers & they can get to know my personality and not be seen as just another student in their classroom. I also though like the big classrooms cause i have less distraction from my peers in being close to them if they continue to talk during the classroom session. I feel that overall the professors are very friendly and the courses assignments are hard yet challenging enough for me to overcome it. Each course and teacher are liked or disliked by each student differently, so it just comes to how the student sees the class.

Coming into UTSA this past school year, I was honestly quite scared & nervous. I attended Antonian College Preparatory High School that was not only a co-educational private school, but it's a national blue ribbon catholic high school. Even though my high school title name "college preparatory" makes everyone know that the students attending their school will be fully prepared for college through work skills, technology, and communications with officials by the time they graduate high school. I felt it didn't prepare me to how to deal with college life outside of the school work, especially when it came to being a worker for a job or communicating with others around us in a social sense. I was given the opportunity to live in a dorm, so I could experience the "college life." Each day that lead up to my move in day, I started feeling so many mixed emotions about it. I started to read books in "how to prepare for college" or "what to expect going into college" type of books. They were quite helpful to me considering i love to read books, so i was able to comprehend how to handle some situation that i would have to deal with in college. When it was finally move in day, I slowly felt more excited than being nervous. Instead of telling my parents "goodbye", I told them "see ya'll soon." From that very moment on, I experience the best memories of my whole life. I met so many amazing people from not only the state ,but the world too! I discovered sides of me that i never knew existed ,until I experienced different activities and situations. I can honestly say that I have truly found my voice. In other words, I felt that I could truly express my opinion and skills with others without feeling shy or scared in what people would think. I became more independent as a adult living on my own on campus. I've come to understand the value of a dollar, the importance of communication with my people, and the the importance of hard work in achieving your personal goals.

I absolutely love it here at the University of Texas at San Antonio! I have had so many amazing experiences with the Christian Fellowship known as Chi Alpha, as well as the members of the club sport, Powerlifting that I now call my family. My classes and professors have really been preparing me for the coming years and the Peer Mentorship has really helped me adjust from a small home town to the big city. Most importantly, my Intro to Mechanical Engineering class has only solidified my conviction of becoming a private mechanical engineering contractor. UTSA also offers recreation and wellness center that has helped me keep in shape for powerlifting as well as Fall into Your Major sessions that allow to explore other majors so that you can truly find your niche. I love the community and diversity that comes with this amazing school!
