5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far at UTSA. All of my computer science professors have been exceptionally good teachers and are always willing to help. I enjoy the fact that this school is somewhat cheap compared to other universities, and I look forward to the rest of my time here.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: One of the major things I appreciate about my university is my advisor. She has been helpful with every step and is quick to respond to any questions.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My school is very friendly. I enjoy the classes I have taken and I feel that the professors care about each student even though it is a large school. The campus is a home away from home. I wouldn't choose a different University because it is close to home and convenient for my family to visit. My over all experience has been great so far.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It was a decent enough school. However, the chemistry department leaves something to be desired of most of the teachers that they employ. Most don't respond to emails quickly or don't a swer questions well during office hours. The advising office for the people in "Student Placement" was horrendous. I had 3 different advisors and when I asked my advisor to do something that an advisor had done for a friend, who had the exact same circumstances as me, she said it was impossible a d no advisor could do that. As long as you don't get that advising office you should be set.

Overall Experience: I have not begun my college experience yet but I believe that attending my future university will be one with a lot of promise. The college I will be attending has a great program for the field I plan in pursuing following the completion of my higher education. I also know a lot of people who will too be attending my university so we will be able to make our transition from high school students to adults together and having your friends experience progression with you can make anything all the better.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: i like how some places have student discounts. it really helps because most college students are broke

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: I think the food is average. I have only ate their once so far and it was at chick-fil-a... the dining hall was pretty spacious.

Off-Campus Housing: The closer you live to campus, the more traffic and expensive it will be. I live about 7 miles from campus on Wurzbach in some raggedy apartments called Limestone Oaks. Never live here! Read the horrible reviews yourself. The cost of living a few miles beyond the school is very affordable. I pay about $615 for rent and utilities for a 700 square foot 1 bedroom apartment. Way cheaper then living on or off campus and having a roommate. There are plenty of apartment located that will help you find a place within a reasonable budget. Some places offer short term leases. Shop around for best deals.

Off-Campus Dining: Depending on which side of campus you are on, there are several inexpensive food truck vendors within walking distance of off campus living. If you are entering UTSA from 1604 there are plenty of affordable restaurants like What-a-burger, Tropical Pollo, Bill Miller BBQ (for bfast tacos before 10:30am), Church's Chicken, pizza places, etc. If you catch the bus or drive towards 6 flags (which is about 5 miles away) then you can eat Red Robin, TGIF, and plenty of other tasty restaurants.

Administration: Financial aid does not play games. Meet their requirements and you will be just fine. If you drop below the standard, start figuring out a way to pay them back. See your academic advisor at least 1 a semester, schedule the appointment in advance. Professors, advisors, counseling, and other staff are very willing to help. Just make sure you are willing excel.

Campus Food: The JPL offers a healthier selection of food. They always have 4 different tasty soups, "create your own salad bar, and a healthy version of Chinese food that uses fresh ingredients. Eating on campus can be expensive at times. There are several stores and quick food stands located throughout campus that are more expensive than I gas station. Try to grocery shop at H-E-B and bring your own food to save money.

Scholarships: Complete all necessary paperwork before the deadline. The financial aid office gets really busy around the beginning of the semester, just be prepared and ready. I'm a veteran who receives the Hazelwood Act. Submit the paperwork as early as possible to avoid delays.
