What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think that it is actually a great University especially when you take in mind how affordable it is. For what you pay, you are actually able to receive a lot. A lot of the campus is newer compared to other campuses. There are a few downsides but what campus is perfect?

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the culture on campus is general nice. The people are sweet and there always seem to be an event to go too. The tuition isn't terrible so that's nice plus. I will say that they like to talk about how they help lower income kids but they are steadily raising the tuition cost when most people can't afford it to begin with.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think the University of Houston is a very diverse and academically challenging school. Every day there is something different happening on campus from fundraising to dance/music concerts. It is very busy during the weekdays as many students are going to classes and work. I think the arts college could use some advancement because classes are limited to about 15 students whereas other colleges like business can have up to 400 students in a classroom setting. There are not many resources provided to the art students like a bigger technology lab , computer labs, and more classrooms. I've been in the art college for two years and see no improvement. However, the university has been making huge improvements on transportation for students using police escorts and student bus rides after 7pm to 6am. They have also been constructing more dorm spaces for more students to live on campus and more parking garages since the amount of commuter students is excessive. About 85 percent of the student body are commuters. The prices for parking passes increase heavily every year which isn't something that makes students happy. Furthermore about the university, the basketball and football games are the biggest sports and are always thrilling to go to. I think that even though the University of Houston has its' downsides, it is a school putting in efforts to welcome more students and getting them involved in campus activities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Houston is a college that loves to create a community for its wide variety of commuter students and students who stay on campus. There is not one day that something isn't going on, because clubs and greek groups are always having bake sales or small events for students to join. And when voting time comes around the corner students are spreading the word of the importance of voting. The University of Houston is a place where everyone can find something to do and if not they'll make sure to have a nice place for you to relax as well, like the Cougar Grounds or the amazing variety of libraries.

Univeristy of Houston is such a nice, big, diverse school. You get to meet so many people you never thought you will ever meet and the professors are amazing. The staffs are very nice and sweet and they are willing to help you whenever you need help. The food is great. There are many fast foods around the campus. There are so many clubs that are on campus as well.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall University of Houston is a great place to obtain your undergraduate degree. The school has many things to fix, such as parking, living accommodations, and some safety concerns every so often. But overall the university is strong with lots of connections. Focusing on the medical center, there will many opportunities for students to reach out and have the experience needed to strive forward. It is very affordable and there will be opportunities to get financial aid. It is very close to its community and will have volunteer opportunities for students to do.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a good school if you just want to finish your degree and get out. Not much else to it. The architecture of the school is pretty old and needs some updating. When it comes to social life, most people live off campus so its tuff making a big group of friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Houston is a very diverse school located close to downtown Houston. The campus itself is very clean and there is always something to do. However the surrounding area, third ward, is not a very safe neighborhood, which could be a cause for concern.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

UH has changed significantly in the last few years to take the stage as a research-centric university. And with this growth come a better reputation, more students, and more resource movement. This increased recognition results in more resources being pushed into STEM, sports, and recreation than before. Each of these fields plays their own part in drawing students (and, therefore, money) to the school, but serves as a drawback to equal allocation of funds to Arts and Social Sciences. When compared to its sister school, University of Houston-Downtown, it is clear the UH-Main Campus has given up some of its attention on being student-driven in order to spend its time growing its reputation and offerings. However, UH has an amazing amount of resources and diversity for a very affordable and competitive tuition cost. I earned a hard science and a liberal art degree while I was at UH and felt that the school was able to give me a challenging and insightful education in both realms.

University of Houston is a great commuter school with plenty of options to get involved on campus. Professors work very hard to help students achieve outstanding results. However two things that need work on are the testing system and chemistry department
