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

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I visited the university in the summer of 2019, it was the perfect school. It was close to home, and it was opening a medical field the year we graduate from our school. We were not required to live on campus the first year which was a big plus. It is a big school, and has many sports to try out for, and it is also a very diverse school. The cafeteria could use some improvement even though they do have Chick-fil-A, they should add more types of restaurants. The tuition of the school is 10,000 which is not that expensive, and helps students with financial aid. I wish they did not have SAT requirements, that hinder students from getting in. I am personally not a good test taker, I tried to take the SAT many times but I could not get a high enough score to get into the major I wanted just by 60 points.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Despite UH's size, I really feel close to the people in my classes. Over the past semester, it's become a new home for me. There are always activities and events happening on and around campus. Getting downtown is fairly easy since we have two rail stops on the campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

University of Houston is overall a reasonable university, with capable facilities and courses, reasonable college life and experience, and a reasonably well-kept campus. While it might not be the first choice for many, it certainly shouldn't be a last pick either.

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.
