I have extremely passionate teachers who help their students reach their maximum potential.

Having been the second school I have transferred to in my college career, I have more experience than the average undergraduate student in terms of gauging and comparing one school to another. Texas Southern University is a school that has a professional teaching staff and a steadily improving commitment to the well-being of its students. Not only do I find what I need very quickly and am helped often when needed, but I also find that the camaraderie is also something that has a very strong presence among the student body. Of course, no school is perfect, but there aren't many things that I would even note to change from my point of view.
