Geograhic Location: The University of Texas at San Antonio serves the San Antonio metropolitan area and the broader region of South Texas through programs and services offered from its three campuses: Main Campus, Downtown Campus and the Hemisfair Park Campus. With almost 30,300 students enrolled in 132 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, UTSA is the second-largest component in The University of Texas System and has been one of the state's fastest-growing public universities for much of the last decade. UTSAs Main Campus is located next to Six Flags Fiesta Texas and The Shops at La Cantera, a gorgeous open-air mall. San Antonio does not have a large public transit system, so the Interns should consider bringing their own vehicles.
