What Students Are Saying

You may think college is all fun and parties, it is but then if you do not know where your priorities lie, you can get bad grades thus might getting on probation. A good tip is to remain focused, do your work, never fall behind and study! Parties will always be here and there and fun is all around, just manage it all carefully.

Go to the professor during their office hours, it's a great deal of help. SI sessions can be very helpful, so go to as many as you can if you're class offers them.
Priscilla from Laredo, TX
Fully prepare and research before settling down with a decision! Look through all the housings, on and around campus, and research all your options of when and where to take your classes.
Most importantly, don't feel scared or intimidated about coming to college. As being a Korean, I am a minority and a female but the school environment welcomed me right in and had me meet great people all throughout my college years.
Ui Ri from San Antonio, TX
I suggest that you go to your professor during their office hours, or if your not the one on one person, then try the SI sessions or the TRC Lab. Also, make good use of the library since it is open 24/5.
Devon from Austin, TX
The parking situation is a toughie. If you want a spot, you've gotta give yourself fifteen or so minutes to find one, or get a moped/motorcyle for special parking. Or try parking at the Valero parking lot where you get shuttled from the parking lot to the school.
Korina from San Antonio, TX
Prospective students should not underestimate UTSA's academics. The school places people with GPAs below a 2.0 on probationary status. If no improvement has been made after a semester of being on academic probation, the student will get kicked out. This happens to a lot of freshmen; don't think it won't happen to you, because it can.

Students often feel lonely at UTSA since clubs don't always flaunt themselves to incoming freshman. Go out there and be active in the community! If you can't afford to drive back and forth to campus, consider living on campus for a while. It's the best way to make new friends and become well-known around school.

Also, avoid taking 12 hours every semester. UTSA's freshmen advisers encourage students to do this, but it's only supposed to be for your first semester. Take 15 hours during your spring semester. Taking 12 hours for every semester will result in a 5-year degree instead of the expected 4.
Daniel from San Antonio, TX
If you're looking for a place where you can be yourself, earn a degree and have fun meeting new people; UTSA is a great place to look with a nice price tag. Find a place close by or live on campus to cut transportation prices out of the equation and allow for quick access to the campus or your home if there is ever a need.
Alexander from San Antonio, TX
I have lived here all my life, and the school is great for someone who wants to stay in town. There is a great atmosphere about the school. And if your not from San Antonio, the school is not to big so you wont feel completely overwhelmed and lost.
Parker from SAN ANTONIO, TX
Balance between studying and fun is a must! But of course this is true for all college students.
Get to know the campus, it helps so you dont waste time walking the longer routes to class. Class scheduling should also be set so that you do as little transportation as possible (to and from the campus).
Aaron from San Antonio, TX
okay here are some tips: go to class every day that you possibly can! some teachers take role and grade you, some give extra credit to students who show up everyday,and also don't forget how much money you're spending to attend this university!! also, because the social aspects of utsa are sooo amazing, it can be pretty hard to chose your social life from your academic life at times, but know that you are here for a reason. never lose sight of that! and lastly, always read ratemyprofessor to know what you're getting yourself into and how to prepare for class along with reading your course syllabus as soon as you can.
