5 College Sophomore

Diversity: UH has so many different cultures and beliefs on campus. On the way to class, you can hear three different languages--ones that aren't common to the city. UH is very accepting and inviting and embraces and celebrates students who aren't the norm.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: UH is definitely one of the more diverse schools in the nation.

4 College Senior

Diversity: Campus is greatly diverse. You see people from all backgrounds, and honestly I meet someone new everyday with a new background. Acceptance into the school is not hard, but not easy as well. I'd say average because of course the school does not want people who aren't committed or serious towards their studies.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There are classes offered for LGBT students and I have never witnessed any discrimination towards them

5 College Junior

Diversity: I love that our campus is so diverse. I used to travel and moving a lot as a kid around the world so it makes it feel more like home. Our president is Indian and the best chem teacher is from New England! It's really great.
