What Students Are Saying

4.12 Average Rating
this school is hard and will challenge you, but i can promise you that you will know much more than public schools students. the classes are small and the largest class i had a maximum of 30 students and as low of only 5 people in my smallest class. you will get the help you need and get to know your professor on a personal level which is unheard of and extremely rare at the college level.
david - san antonio, tx
We have a be very close knit community. You'll have some great relationships by the time you've graduated from here. Academics are tough, but will surely have you prepared by the time you're done.
I have not liked one professor that i have had here. Each professor has a different style of teaching. No professor will teach the same and they are very involved in your academic life. The class sizes (which are very small) really do help!
Brittanie from San Antonio, TX
The campus is a cozy size and easy to traverse. The classes are small and personal, with excellent feedback. The instructors and faculty alike are friendly and incredibly helpful.
Zachary from Seguin, TX
This university has rigorous programs. There are plenty of opportunities for internships in the USA and abroad. Administrative offices and academic personnel are easily accessible with a quick response time.
