What Students Are Saying

3.93 Average Rating
My main tip That I give to students who are intrested in coming here is to live on campus. I live 15 min away fromt he school and I live on campus! Its much more convienient to live her plus you become more involved when you do so. Another tip is to become more involved at first i was scared to but being on the dance team has helped me with school stress and my health. Because in a way it forces you to pass your classes. Plus you learn how to manage your time.

Look for scholarships and get involved with the campus, it has great things to offer.
Matthew from San Antonio, TX
When going to this school make sure you are financially stable because it can get a tad bit expensive with books and other fees. Also have good study habits since managing school and a social life can start to drain you quickly.
Janet from San Antonio, TX
If you need high levels of intellectual stimulation like I do, join the Honors Program. The classes are more challenging and intimate, and it looks marvelous on a resume.

Live on the main part of campus, even if your hometown is San Antonio. This allows you to focus more on your studies and is much more convenient. Commuters aren't allowed to park on main campus and have to park in a parking garage on the hill behind the football field, which forces them to walk or take the university shuttle down to the main part of campus. I have lived on campus, one semester on main campus and one semester in a dorm on the hill. The hill dorms cost much more and are not close to your classes. Live on main campus -- it's easier. If you do choose to live on the hill, though, you will still benefit. Some dorms on the hill offer private baths and are also newer and nicer but are more expensive. If you would like a compromise between the benefits of private bath as well as closeness to you classes, the on-campus apartments are probably for you.

Network!!! Go to the meetings for various clubs, even if you do not intend on joining. This is how you learn to meet alot of people. Join a sports team, teammates are like automatic family and really help you during your first year of college. Coaches also serve as mentors to give you much needed advice. Dont' be shy, ask questions and get to know classmates. You never know when the dork next to you will be your key to passing a class!

Miguel from San Antonio, TX
for prospective students, in my views this university encourages students to become internationally aware and basically teaches students to be open with other cultures and religions. the staffs and professors are very kind and helpful.
Stephanie from San Antonio, TX
The parking lots get clogged around 5pm. Avoid driving around then.
James from Odessa, TX
Take advantage of your breaks between classes. Study! Study! Study!
Respect and interact with your professors, you may want to ask for a reference one day.
