Overall Experience: I like the urban environment. The new METRO Light Rail makes it easier to get from U of H to Downtown, which is great to visit the theater district, and entertainment venues. I like the diversity of U of H; it's a great way to meet new people and learn about the different cultures and traditions.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school is okay there are many things to do but it all seems confusing at first.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: It being close to home and having already gone to a community college gives me the ability to still live at home and commute to class every day. I save a bunch of money on living expenses by not having to live on campus and with my family. The classes have all been moderate difficulty which is good because it's engaging, and all of my professors so far have been rather exceptional at what they teach and make it easy to learn.

Overall Experience: I wish my school wasn't a commuter college so that everyone would spend more time on campus and it would feel more like a large university experience.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The University of Houston is everything I could ask for in a school. It's more affordable compared to other universities, there are plenty of opportunities to meet people, vast resources to help students get jobs, and school pride is very strong.

Overall Experience: The campus is quite comfortable for me. They're constantly adding new buildings and facilities so construction is a bit of a hassle. The area is undergoing gentrification. The financial aid department could be a bit quicker on getting back to students.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The most beautiful and productive I have ever seen. I just love the view of my school.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The only reason I'm not giving it a 5 is because of how tough commuter life is and how expensive college is.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love it, I enjoy being challenge to excel on a daily basis and I like the social atmosphere as well. I've already made lifelong friends and connections without really even trying. I wouldn't change a thing.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: University of Houston is an outstanding public school that offers several top programs such as business, hospitality, engineering, etc. UH is the second most diverse university in the nation. We have close to 41,000 students, but we have over 500 student organizations on campus so meeting people, making friends, and networking should not be a problem. Also, UH recently built a new football stadium and they are renovating the basketball stadium.

Overall Experience: This school is an excellent university. Located in the fourth largest city in America, the resources that you have available to you are immense.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Came into the University of Houston as part of the Honors College. Overall the University does provide a host of opportunities that can be taken advantage of. Coming from a business major, Houston is the capital for oil and gas in the United States and most students work in this field after graduation.

The social scene is a mixed bag. I highly encourage students to apply for the Honors College and on campus housing. Honors students will be required to take a 10 hour course, The Human Situation, which is probably the worst class I've ever taken. Huge waste of money in my opinion. But the business honors classes, combined with smaller classes, benefits, and honors housing makes the program worth the effort. Plenty of opportunities and social scenes are available, you just need to seek them out. UH is a big commuter school, meaning many students go to school in the morning, then leave for home in the evening. Do not be one of these students and complain about the lack of a social scene. Whether you live on campus or not, join a student organization or get into the Greek life. Also go out and support our sports teams. Party life and sports are not as big as UT or TAMU, but UH can be a great college experience if take the necessary steps to get involved. Biggest downside is the surrounding area, the Third Ward. Terrible area, but it can be avoided all together. Overall try and get into the Honors program. While I did not enjoy the required Honors call, the Human Situation, the students are for the most part forward thinking, and not commuters. The Honors college is mostly made up of students not from Houston. This combined with the small class size and Honor's housing will mean you can make some great friends that live on campus. I have many great friends that are commuters and make the best of it. I also know many commuters who just come to campus for class. Do not be one of these students, you will hate your college experience.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I believe that there is a lot of potential for this school to grow. There is a lot of unnoticeable school pride but that is starting to drastically change. Students are taking a lot of initiative to change the stigma of what the school is like due to its location through school pride and student organizations.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The school has an amazing environment. There are various clubs and many things to do on campus and even off campus. It is very convenient since I can work one day and go to school another day, which I cannot do if I was to move out. One of the benefits of a commuter school.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I am in the Graduate College of Social Work at University of Houston and I love it. The faculty and staff are very friendly and always willing to answer your questions. This is not just a school, it is a family. The friends we make through our learning process creates bonds that will continue into the work force, which is very beneficial. The classes are amazing and we are learning so much about what we want!

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: What I like most about my school is that it is opposite from where I grew up. I live in Texas and my school is in West Virginia, as I'm sure everyone knows they are some distance away from each other. WVU is a small school that focuses on education while making it enjoyable.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I really like a lot of the opportunities that The University of Houston has presented me with. Through the honors college I've met many amazing professors, students, and have learned a lot. However, the office administration is not so great. I have had trouble talking to advisers and getting the financial help I need to afford school. Making an appointment online to talk with someone takes weeks, and once you see them they barely know how to answer your questions. I wish the school would focus more on helping its students succeed on more behind-the-scenes issues like scholarships and schedule management rather than just grades.
