What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My college experience has taught me that I need to be more confident in myself and that I am capable of much more than I think. It took me a few years (and more than a few thousand dollars) to realize I should have chosen a different major that would have afforded me better opportunities upon graduating. I learned advisors are not forthcoming with realistic information about majors and career paths. College has been invaluable to me because I learned self-confidence, organization, and professional skills. College has also provided an opportunity to network with people in the same career field as me.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

UHCL does not offer enough 7:00pm classes for graduate students

UofH Clearlake is a smaller campus than most other 4 year universities and because of this it offers a greater feeling of comfort. Every employee that I have delt with are very understanding and helpful. I would suggest UofH Clearlake to anyone whose next step is a 4 year college because it is a wonderful college to attend, the teachers are great, and the counselors are helpful. If your next step is choosing a college go to UofH Clearlake you wont regret it.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My college experience began early as I started taking a few extra credit courses in high school. My high school was excellent and prepared me for what was to come in my college classes. Some of my college classes have been difficult while others have been a breeze. I feel as though I have learned different strategies of working and studying based on the particular class I'm in. I have met many new people that I would not have been able to do if not in college. One of whom is now a dear friend of mine and the person who lead me into elementary education. I am so happy with my education classes and my courses are really getting me ready to be a teacher. Although my experience in college has been a little longer than I would have liked, I have come along way and learned a lot. I hope to be able to apply what I have received from my classes and apply it in the future for my class.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

College has taught me how to be more accepting of other cultures. Before I attended college, I was nervous and scared when I was around people with different backgrounds than me. Now I know more about them, and am able to see past the cultures to the person and learn more about the person.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

My college experience has been on of my greatest achievements in life. When I decided to go back to college, I was a 35 year old single mother with a special needs child and I had just achieved a soberity of 3 months. The decision to return to college was very overwhelming; however, I persevere and graduated from Houston Community College with an Associates of Arts degree and I also graduated with Honors. My acceptance into the Social Work program at the University of Houston-Clear Lake was a phenomenal milestone. My strong dedication to my educational goals is represented in my 3.4 grade point average and I am proud to say I am still clean and sober after 4 years and counting. I can truly say that I am a miracle in progress and I am grateful for the many opportunites I have been given at the UH Clear Lake and I pray that this success will lead me to a brighter future.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I can honestly say that I have that I do not have any negative personal issues with the University of Houston-Clear Lake. However, I must say that I would like to see more Afrian-American studensts on campus and I am hoping the the University will push to recruit more minorites in the near future.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

First, I wished I would have known aobut the external scholarships that were available for first-time students. Also, coming into the University of Houston-Clear Lake was a culutre shock at first; however, I have been able to adjust very well to my new surroundings. What was most frustrating at UH Clear Lake was learning about where the various classroom settings, bookstore location, accessing the WEB CT protocol and memorizing all of the user ID and password codes, which were at times unbearble; however, I now have a better understanding of the whole entire process of college life.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

It is not always important to know exactly what you want to be when you get into college. You must focus on your school work, but do not forget about taking care of yourself. Make sure what you end up studying is something you love to do, because if it is not then you will end up not enjoying the classes, not learning, and wasting time that you can never get back. Love yourself and what you do, and you will be a much happier person for it. Making friends is easy, and if they care about you, it is easy to keep them too. It is all right to let down your guard somewtimes, but do not let others push you in a direction just because they think it is what you want. You know yourself better than anyone else, and you know what works for you. Focus on the positives in life and do not let the negatives have such a profound impact on you. You can make a great deal of positive difference in this world if only try!

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I love the small class sizes and indivdual attention you receive from the teachers; they really want to get to know you. The class work load may be very demanding at times, but you really learn a lot from it, and the teachers give practical application to the work.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would definitely do things differently as a high school senior. I would be more college oriented and really become a part of the process of choosing a college. I decided to start out at community college but If I could go back I probably would have gone to a 4-year school to really get the full experience of college. I would have worked harder on and sent out more applications to schools and for scholarships to give myself more opportunities. My college career has worked out for me but I do believe I could have done better if I put more of an effort into the process.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is looking for the real college experience of greek life, and sports, or someone who is looking to live on campus.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

It is close to my house and easy to get to. The classes are fun and very helpful toward my future career.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Start applying for college early. Do not wait until the last minute. If you can go to a school that you want to go to then do it. Don't let anyone or anything hold you back. Do what you want to do. Be prepared for a lot of homework and a lot of studying. Do not procratinate! Try as hard as you can and try not to stress.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would go back and tell my self to not be lazy and apply for as many schorships and i possabily could. Insted of being lazy and goofing off. I would also tell myself to talk the hard road or the road less traveld. If i had applyed for all those scholrships i could have worked at school a little harder because i would have to work at dead end job as long as i did. I would tell myself to pick and engineering major. Not to flot around in a couple of different majors trying to figure out what i wanted to do. I would agin tell myself not to be so lazy. because i am not lazy at all now. I look back on things now and i used to be the type of person that thought things would take care of themselvels but i know now that the only way things get taken care of. Is if you take care of then yourself. I have a very good work ethic and i would tell myself to use it for what was most important at the time which was paper work for colleges and scholrships.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

I really havent found anything i didnt like about UHCL it is a very nice college and try are very easy to deal with and get information out of. I guess the only thing i dont like about UHCL is that they do tend to loss transcrips and you have give them more than one and you have to keep checking in wirth them to make sure that when you trasfer in that they have keyed into there system.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I tell people about how nice the campuse is and all the wild life that is on campuse! because the campuse is a wild life reserve. I also talk about the teachers. The teachers at UHCL really do care about the students and try to help. I talk about the class size; i have been to an other major university where their was 300 people in a class. AT UHCL their normaly about 50 to 75 people to a class so it make learing and getting to know your professor alittle more one on one.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would remind myself that I need to attend a school that is more academically focused and not one that is known for parties. School studies should come first if I want to get a career and be succesful in life.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

How peaceful it is, and academically challenging it is.
