3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: probably would have chosen a different graduate program

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: football is a big deal

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are security guards around campus as well as an accesible campus police building. I feel safe due to the wide open areas also having pepper spray and a taser also aids in insuring ones safety. There are rarely any crimes on campus.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Being a part of Greek life is not a major aspect at the University of Houston though it is engaging and interesting. They create a good number of fun activities to do while at college. Greek students are not seen all that differently from non-Greek students because all kinds of people join. There are many Greek life housing locations as to what kinds I do not know.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: A big help to the addition of students attending the football games was the hiring of Coach Tom Herman as head coach. He lead our team strongly and was able to bring out the players potential to win the Peach Bowl.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Univeristy of Houston was a great choice because of the good professors that excel in teaching as well as it being a commuter school making it easier to pay for tuition without the exorbitant costs of living on campus at non commuter friendly colleges. The campus itself is very beautiful with a multitude of trees and greenery. Additionally, the campus is very walker friendly as well. I would definitely pick this college as my choice again if I could do it all over.

4 College Freshman

4 College Freshman

5 College Freshman

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: i do not know a lot about it but there are many who are a part of it

4 College Freshman

Athletics: athletics is good and home games get a good turn out

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: its very diverse and the environment is very welcoming.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel safe at this school. There is campus police roaming around everywhere all of the time, and there are help stand all around campus. They have escorts, which makes me feel safe at night. The dorm security could be better at not letting in random people into the building.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My professors and I can have intellectual conversations about the course and workload. The courses here are amazing. There are many courses to choose from at this school.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Recruiters come to campus at the beginning and the middle of the semesters. To look for internships and jobs, you have to either research on your own, talk to your advisor, or go to the Career Services Center.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's convient to live on campus because the dorms are next to classes, but I had no access to a microwave for the first semester. The dorm rooms are pretty small.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greeks barely show up around campus, unless it's a Greek event or if they are having a bake sale.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football team is undefeated and amazing.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love the University of Houston. It is the third diverse college in he nation and has one of the top research programs in the country. It is a Tier One school, and I have great professors to help me and guide me through my courses. The only downfall is that, for an underfunded school, I feel like I am paying way too much to go here. I would not pick this school over only because it is extremely expensive, and the people in the registrar's office, admissions office, and financial office are extremely slow and sometimes rude. I pay too much money for that rude service, especially the rude service in the dining halls. I also pay way too much money for it to go into the football team and not into the academic programs.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Till now I learned a lot from them. Some courses need more time than I can spend on them. The professors are mostly teaching in an understandable way.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I have not gone through the internship or job procedure yet. But what I got from my friends is that career fair is mostly good for internship rather than jobs.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: What I believe is that the best dorm which is Calhoun loft is kind of expensive that when I was thinking of that, I changed my mind to find a cheaper house and rent out of campus.

5 College Junior

Greek Life: What I believe is that Greek life is really affecting campus in a great way.
