What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Houston has been a great experience so far. I am currently a freshman trying to graduate with a Bachelors of Science in teaching and learning. There are multiple places to go if you need extra help, that is called the launch. There are also multiple places around campus to get some snacks through out the day. The people that work in the library, are polite and will help you with anything you need. Everything is within walking distance.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I live on campus because the traffic to get to the school is always crazy busy. I live about 45 mins North of Houston so if I didn't live on campus, I would never be on time for my classes. School is large and diverse. People are friendly. Food is good.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Houston has a lot of opportunities, no matter what your major is. People who say otherwise aren't paying attention or trying to actively join things. There are a lot of changes underway to fix the problems that students have, which shows that the University actually listens to what students think and critique. The Honors College at the University of Houston is one of the top five in the nation, and the university is ranked second for diversity in the nation. No matter what you are interested in, there are clubs for you. There's intramural dodgeball, top rated business societies, and volunteer organizations. If you want to get involved in Greek life, there's plenty of opportunities for that, but it isn't required to be a part of the social scene. There's parties for those who are interested in partaking in drinking/dancing/drugs, but there's also University-thrown parties for those who are uncomfortable around drinking/drugs. Homecoming week is especially fun-- and the University of Houston for sure knows how to party correctly! There's activities everyday, including a snow winter wonderland and a concert at the end of the week (this year featured Waka Flocka Flame!). Housing can be a bit of an issue with availability, as is parking, but both are solutions that the campus is actively working to solve. There's new housing being built each year to upgrade on the older properties, and there are a lot of incentives to parking on campus, commuting in groups, and taking the Metro. No matter how you decide to get to campus, UH has a discount or deal for you. UH also offers a fixed rate tuition plan, where students who enroll and follow their 4 year academic plan can have fixed tuition starting from their freshman year until they graduate. There's two dining halls on campus, Moody Dining Hall (which is 24 hours) and Cougar Woods (which has select availability). Cougar Woods generally gets better reviews, but it is nice to be able to have Moody be open all the time. They also cook to order things like pasta and cultural foods, and they have options for vegetarians, vegans, and halal. There's lots of places to eat on campus, all over campus; there's typical fast food like Chick Fil A and McDonalds, but also local favorites like Cafe 101, Pinks Pizza, and the Nook for coffee. There's also a coffee shop on campus run by the hotel and restaurant majors, Cougar Grounds, where the coffee and snacks are affordable and the proceeds go to scholarships for those in the Hilton College. The campus recreation center is available for all students and they have free classes and training for students who want to participate. The library has many different options for all types of studying: group, social, and individual (silent) zones. I know I've spent more than my fair share of time cramming my last minute term papers in the silent section of the library. UH is often overlooked as just another Texas school, but there's truly beauty on campus. Cougars take care of Cougars, from studying for classes to making connections for later in life. You never feel alone when you go to UH.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Houston is a great school especially the main campus. The area looks clean and trash-free. The sporting spirit in most students is burning even hotter than the sun. There are many group activities outside of class and students look very enjoyable. The student center is a great place for students to destress themself because it includes shop to buy merchandise, places to eat, and even a place for bowling. Overall, The University is an amazing campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Houston is primarily my plan A to attend. They contain a variety of career studies that thousands of people of different races and ethnicities come to study. However, the reason that I love UH is because they have the career that I desire to achieve. Therefore, this campus will inevitably be my next campus after high school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Houston has a great atmosphere and you can rarely find anyone who isn’t polite. The campus is so diverse which makes it even better to love by seeing so many people of different color and ethnicities getting along. Also, the amount of festivities that happens on the campus makes being a college student so much more enjoyable.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it! There is so much on campus help if you need it and so many opportunities. There is art everywhere and the discounts for students to attend events are amazing. The football games are my favorite, there is so much school spirit and so much excitement. This university is a great one to be a part of and I'm so glad that I am

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am just about finished with my first semester here, and it is not bad. There are a lot of fun activities to do on and off campus as well as a lot of clubs. This school always boasts about how diverse the students are, and they are not wrong. There are tons of different cultures and communities on campus. This school is primarily a commuter school, but they really try to push on campus housing. I do think this school is a little pricey but overall a good public school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I interviewed at the University of Houston College of Optometry, I instantly felt drawn to the program more so than the other schools I previously interviewed at. First, the faculty was direct and upfront about the difficulty of the program, which I appreciated because I want to be able to challenge myself as a future eye doctor. To me, UHCO showcased their natural ability to attract students from the confident presentation of their school. Each and every one of us at that interview date knew that we would be lucky to attend UHCO, and this was an impression we concluded ourselves rather than being persuaded as the day went on. Now, as I await to start my first semester at UHCO, the program certainly lives up to the prestige as one of the greatest optometry school, and I am fully confident that this program will shape me into the best optometrist I can be.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I believe that University of Houston is a relatively good school. There is a vast range of languages that I hear around me being spoken/written everyday, and fellow students are very nice. I love the wide variety of majors offered on campus, and consistency of a new extracurricular activity being held everyday. There is always something to do on campus, and always new people to meet. However, I believe that there is room for growth, for example, having smaller class sizes, and the campus dining could improve a bit. While there is some room for growth, I believe that University of Houston is a great school for students to learn, to grow personally and academically.
