The University of Houston is a very diverse school that will allow all students to be safe. It is close to where I live, I believe this college will be meant for me; as my major is nursing. I have done some research on the nursing program; I have heard very good feedback from people that have graduated from this college.
I’m about to finish my first year at UH and it has been wonderful. The campus is so lively and there’s always people around to help. The art and nature around campus are beautiful and everyone has the Coog spirit. I love my school and couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.
UH has a strong network of alumni who have gone on to achieve success in a variety of fields. This network can be valuable to current students who are seeking mentorship, internships, or job opportunities.
Overall, attending the University of Houston can provide students with a quality education, research opportunities, diverse experiences, and access to a strong alumni network, all at an affordable cost.
University of Houston is to me the typical university. When someone pictures big university with some fun in it I would picture UH. I don't think in any aspect it is the best, but it is above average in every single field. Overall I like UH.The university of Houston is overall great

study more and make it to UT without fail
Classmates are classmates, everyone varies but most are there to eagerly learn their interests.
The University of Houston is a stellar academic Tier One research university, with a diverse student body and a great Communication Sciences and Disorders program, which is my major.
The remodelled gym is the only thing that makes me feel, my tuition is being used somewhere important.
UH is a nice campus in the middle of poor neighboroods. Yet with that in mind, there are so many things to do or see near or on campus. It is close to a bunch of attractions yet can still maintain the identity of a school in a college town.
If I had to narrow it down to just one thing, I'd have to say parking. There never seems to be enough parking, although the school is trying to fix that.
Someone who loves diversity or who's looking to experience what diversity is like
The University of Houston is located in the greater Houston area therefore creating an enormous diverse campus. The school has a huge variety of different student organizations including everything from different cultures to different majors to different extracurricular interests. Any type of person would find a place for them on this campus whether its based on major or personal interest.
I wish I had known that the tuition will go up almost every semester.The classes are extremely expensive. I am taking 5 classes and do not have time for work. The financial aid that I have been getting had dropped, now it is just $5500 a year! This fall semester cost me almost $4000, not counting books. I really wish I could get a scholarship, it will be really helpful in my financial situation. I think that students must concentrade on their studyings, instead of being stressed up on thinking where to get money for their next semester tuition.
i brag about how my school is more real than theirs since its next to the ghetto
University of Houston is best known for many things for example they have one of the best business programs in the city as well as state. The school is also known for being a tier one university and also for being an environmental school. University of Houston is very friendly and a good campus to go to since it is near downtown.
One thing that I would like to change is making the faculty and staff of the University more spirited. Students are not enough to carry the spirit. Also, faculty and staff need to be reminded that they are here for the students. The reason they are employeed is because of the students, and therefore they should try and take care of them best they can.
University of Houston doesn't get near the recognition that it deserves. It's an older campus, so we don't have the nice fancy buildings that UT and A&M have, and we are often considered the odd stepchild. The neighborhood that the university is built in isn't the best either, known for its high amount of crime allows us to be titled the "ghetto" schools. But honestly the schools taking a lot of money out of its pocket to make the campus look nicer, by building nicer buildings. And we have one of the most diverse, intelligent campuses in Texas, most of which are Indian and Asian students from the area. We are a tier one research university and we are rated as one of the most difficult skills to get A's in. We never get the credit we deserve.
Very knowledgeable and helpful
Not too sure, I have not really looked around much.
There is no specific stereotype at UH because there is so much diversity.
Like I said before, since University of Houston is located in an urban area, there is often a stereotype that most of our students are "ghetto" and "uneducated." This could not be further from the truth!
I decided to attend University of Houston, because I knew I wanted a university located in a major city, but since I'm originally from the Dallas area, I wanted it to be away from home. So I decided "Why not Houston!?" Then I went online and researched it a bit, and saw that they would accept all my AP credits, and had a lot of nice scholarships. So I applied, and BAM!, here I am.
I am a commuter, but from what I've heard, the dorms are mostly nice. There is a fairly new freshman facility, and they are planning to build more dorm facilities in the near future.
