Horrible!Quite BrightElectrical Engineering
Horrible! Some good professors, but overall a terrible school. San Antonio is a dirty, boring city with a lazy culture and zero industry for engineering majors. The campus is an ugly jungle of concrete and pavement, construction is non-stop, and nobody has any school spirit. The city population is fat, unhealthy and uneducated. Many professors in sci/cs/engineering do not speak ENGLISH well enough to teach effectively. This university is all about making money and not at all about teaching. I found the majority of the course material to be busy work and not at all inspirational. I am a bright student who did well enough at UTSA to transfer out to a better engineering school ASAP. I am so happy I left UTSA for good, and I am sorry I ever attended. Bottom line: if you are fat, lazy, close-minded and stupid, go to UTSA, otherwise, look elsewhere.

If you want to get a degree andBrightBiology
If you want to get a degree and be done with college - go here. If you want to drive to Austin every weekend to party - go here. If he want to be apathetic, unmotivated, passionless, and a carbon copy of everyone else - go here. UTSA is all about making a name for itself right now. The school is growing and changing, but very slowly. It'll take a few years before this school even has any culture other than "hit it and quit it" from the parties to the academics - everything about UTSA is tired, repetitive, and down right awful for growth.

San Antonio is slowly waking up as well, but is still a sleepy city with lots of nothing to do. The river walk and the Alamo aren't the only places to go - but finding your own niche is almost impossible. People aren't friendly. People hold onto their pride. And that reflects straight back onto the way the university treats creativity and learning. Honestly, even though this school was cheep, easy, and a good way to get a decent degree and move on with my life I would never ever suggest for anyone to go here but an idiot. And if you're researching colleges, I'm assuming you're not an idiot. Do yourself a favor and stretch your limits - UTSA is not a college, and it's not even a community college where you can avoid too much work and start getting an income. This place is a cop out to trying harder and changing yourself. If you're in the CAP program here, everyone will dislike you and you'll only make friends with CAP students.
