The University of Texas at San Antonio is a 4-year public research institution and the largest university in the San Antonio region. UTSA encompasses nine colleges and schools conferring undergraduate degrees as well as an Honors College. Between classes, the UTSA campus features a number of student hangouts including the UTSA Student Union and the Roost game room. A designated Hispanic-serving Institution, UTSA participates in San Antonio’s annual Fiesta celebration through Fiesta UTSA, a day-long fair that includes numerous food booths and musical performances.
utsa has a diverse student population, a wide range of student services (including an excellent gym facility, complete with cooking courses, personal trainers, and rock-climbing wall), and a rapidly growing academic program with professors from all over the country and abroad. utsa is a great place to be if you want to have an impact on the rest of the student population; there are many student organizations to join, but it is also easy to become a key member (or even the president) of any club in which you're interested. academics are stronger in some fields than others; students in sciences and mathematics will find that the university puts a lot of money and time into those programs, while liberal arts departments are often smaller (though the classics and philosophy professors are absolutely wonderful, as well).

UTSA is incredibly diverse and multi-cultural. It encourages student participation on campus, as well as promoting different things to help students in their studies. It is a very student-friendly environment.
