5 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are growing rapidly at my university, with out football team better than ever, the school spirit has been some of the best I've ever seen. And with the new athletic facility, open for both athletes and non-athletes, everyone feels involved.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: My university is an extremely diverse one, the second diverse school in the nation actually. Because of this, the students here are always open-minded, and willing to learn new cultures and experience new things.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: A bit on the pricy side, but the newer facilities are very nice. I wish having a meal plan was not required when living on campus.

Greek Life: Not as big as other campuses, but they definitely have a presence.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Great new improvements in many of the athletics departments

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: While the university does have its strong suits, some departments still need improvement, particularly in my field of study.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Campus housing is great. It is generally an easy process with an application that is not too complex. In the process, it helps find a roommate to prevent any possible disharmony, if you had not already requested someone. The best options are the freshman dorms. The dorms or apartments for upperclassmen are also great, however, they are on the outside border of the campus which is sometimes not always safe due to the area. Regardless, all housing is generally nice and could be rated about 3.5 stars at the least.

Greek Life: Personally, I do not know much about the Greek life as it is not a huge importance to student life at my university. However, a large portion of students are involved in Greek life. They participate in hosting an array of on campus events, not just parties, as well as bake sales. Most non Greek students feel indifferent about those involved in a fraternity or sorority. No one gets judged whether or not they are involved in Greek life.

5 College Senior

Athletics: The students are highly involved in athletics - athletes and nonathletes. The football games are the biggest attraction, especially with the stadium being recently rennovated. The school spirit is definitely high due to our sports. Our teams may not be the greatest in the country, however they still gain high rankings and high support from students as well as the administration.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: It is such a diverse school, so it definitely makes you open minded. I have met so many people who are different and unique in their own way. All the students are so kind and want to help each other do their best. It is less of a competition to get a degree because I have not met anyone who befriends anyone for the sake of personal advancement. The professors are great - funny, friendly, and passionate. This school is so underrated that people do not see how great of a university it actually is.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: I do not attend many parties. The ones that I have attended are not bad and are very fun.

3 College Senior

Party Scene: The different parties that are provided by the University are very helpful in meeting people and also having a good time which helps not be so stressed about school.

5 College Senior

Academics: I have been at the University for about four years. I have not had any issues with any of the academics. I find it to be a great school and am very proud to attend it.

3 College Senior

Diversity: Everyone is very accepting go each other they do not single anyone out because of their background.

4 College Senior

Drug Safety: I have never had a problem with people offering me drugs.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have only had great experiences!

2 College Senior

Health & Safety: I believe that the campus could be a little safer. There is no reason that we should be getting robbed when going to our cars.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Did not have any problems.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: I do not live on campus, but I have a few friends that do and they have nothing but good things to say about campus living.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: The greek community is a great way to meet new people and be able to enjoy the college experience with people that are there to help you through everything.

5 College Senior

Athletics: Everything in the athletic department does not matter what sport is very athlete and guest friendly.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have had nothing but great experiences at the University of Houston. The staff is very helpful and carrying and my peers are very friendly.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: The security is relatively ok. I am unsure of how many crimes or assaults they have stopped or prevented in its tracks but they are proactive in reporting them as soon as possible so that students are aware. They installed the red boxes a couple of years ago. There is security 24/7 and also escorts when needed. There are systems in place to help with the crime on campus.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: Depending on the dorm you lived in the atmosphere was nice. Moody was horrible where cleanliness and upkeep was concerned, however the sense of community was amazing and comforting. Cougar Village I as a freshman was a great experience, especially for the first year being away from home. The quads gives a sense of being older, yet not old enough to afford anything great. The mold was ridiculous and you did feel a little spaced out and secluded at times, but it was an ok dorm. Lofts is like a dream come true. Cougar place is the place to be because the facility is top notch and really makes you feel like your money is being put to good use.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life is divided. Some are treated better than others. Most are known for serving the community. While some are very inviting, others can be very exclusive.
