University of Houston-Downtown is a small campus compared to bigger-name universities. They have an extension in the north-west side of town but they are limited to what programs they offer there. The professors are very caring but the person that is in charge of the education system there is a bit unorganized. I have had issues and so have many other students who are in the same program as me. Overall it is a great school with affordable prices. I just wish they would get someone who will take better care of the student's academic needs.
My opinion of University of Houston-Downtown is that it is a great school. Have great teachers who are willing to help. The University of Houston-Downtown gives out a lot of opportunities to students so that they can continue their learning. Not all colleges give this opportunities to students.
I think this school is great. If you like small classes we have them but if you like big classes we also have them. Student life is great there’s always something going on and people are always trying to get you to participate. Getting around campus is pretty confusing for the first week but after that it’s really simple. There’s also so many things you can do when you leave campus because downtown is down the street from the school.
Although the campus is smaller compared to bigger universities, in both size and class size, the more intimate setting allows for opportunity to arise for students who look for it. In the heart of Downtown Houston, as well as a stop for the rail, there is also plenty of opportunity to get something good to eat, visit the local museum district with relative ease, explore the Houston tunnels, grab something to drink, etc. The location of the campus really shines here.

When I graduated high school I made the decision to wait to go back to college. After all the strugles I have been through to pay bills, fighting to get a job in an office, and working toward a future if I could give my senior self any advice, it would be to start college the following semester and to not wait. I thought waiting would be a good thing since at the time I had no clue what I wanted to do. Now, I am having to take classes that I would have been exempt from as well having to relearn a few thigns. I would beg myself to not make this mistake. However, dispite wishing I had done this five years ago I am happy that I am finally working toward a better future for myself.
The most frustrating portion of my school is the lack of services that are available for those students who attend school in the evening. I am not able to get to those services or ask the questions because their student services areas are closed at 5pm. Calling is a hassle, I understand that there the students are a priority that are physically and capable to be there during the day, but I cannot speak to a live person, once I leave a message I never get a return phone call.
MY CLASSMATES WERE GREAT.
My school is not on many scholarship lists. I have a very hard time filling in blanks that ask for the school name. It has many different branches and none of them are on any down drops for school listings. It makes applying for many scholarships difficult.
UHD is a large and successful school with diversity amongst the student body, a sprawling campus, multiple degree programs, and classes that can fit any schedule.
University of Houston-Downtown is close to bus and metro rail. It is small enough that I do not have trouble getting from class to class. The professors are there for the students. Disability Services is available to students that need it.
The best aspect of this educational facility is its ability personalizes each student?s success. While attending this institution, I have been able to meet personally with Deans, Professors, Counselors, and administrators to resolve issues that I felt were important to me. In addition, I have witnessed genuine concern for personal differences as it is related to ethnicity, personalities, gender, and individual thinking.
I regreat I wait to long to obtain my undergardute education in this university. I decided to attend this university knowing that this was the right university for me
Students who are interested in getting their education quickly, inexpensively, and conveniently.
The kind of person that should not attend University of Houston is a person thats going to choose to want to be a party animal. In college their is going to be alot more freedom. Parents will not be on your back, and your teachers will not care if you choose not to show up for class. So if as a person you dont have the restraint or self control to put first things first, then going to college is not for you. A person walking into this college like its the same thing as high school is not ready.
I would say my school is best know for their flexability in times for their classes
I love the fact that you get the college experience without being in a big university. Small classes and student-teacher interaction is not common among 4-year universities so the fact that UHD has the best of worlds is great.
Not have yet started but I believe they'll be challenging
A lot of rich arabs
I decided to go to this school because the tuition is lower than most other universities, smaller school, and the distance is not too far away. The classrooms are smaller and easier to find. There's many awesome people who're willing to help you. What I like is that this school has a floor where you're able to get a good view of the outside world. The library is pretty nice too; it has a coffee shop inside so that's pretty neat. The professors aren't too bad either! I also think the faculties care about the students' safety. There's also a lot of majors to choose from so that's what makes this school great. Very diverse. I don't know if I'll graduate in this school, but I hope to learn a lot from it.
