The Highland Hills area is fine for that price and a short enough commute to OLLU.

The OP most likely knows exactly what she can afford and is not expecting anything ritzy.

If it were me, I would start out renting for a while. Then, take your time exploring the city before deciding on a location. The neighborhoods are scattered all over, and being an hour from the near west side covers a lot of area in Bexar county.

I'm actually from that side of town and it's rare if I ever see a police car in my neighborhood. I'm maybe about 10 minutes away from OLLU and worked with friends who graduated from there. I believe there are some houses for sale in my area that might be close to what you're asking for, but, as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for.

If you send me a PM, I can give you my zip code and that'll give you an idea about wear to search for houses.

I would agree that buying something super-cheap when you're still a student doesn't make much sense. After you finish up your education, you may find a job elsewhere that is what you want. Why tie yourself down with something that may or may not sell later on for as much as you paid for it?

^This. The only really "safe" parts of San Antonio are in the Northside of San Antonio and Alamo heights area.

Thank you all for your helpful responses. I am going to go to OLOL but I am going to do it online. I got a job offer that is too good to pass up and they will pay for my MSW. I am moving to Maryville MO in Sept. Thanks again

This site is a good way to visually see where $50K and under homes and townhomes/condos are located. Enter $50,000 for the max price, and choose between Single Residential and Condominium.
