There are only two resident halls, one being apartment style. The apartment style is for Juniors and Seniors but it is hard to get into because the hall holds under 100 people. The other dorms are a shared room with bathroom in suite and are nice for freshman, but the meal plan is $1500 per semester! This wouldn't be as bad if the dining hall situation was better. There is a subway, an itty bitty "convenience" section, and 3 food stalls to get food from- and I have gotten sick a few times from this. Also, the dining hall keeps strange hours. For this reason, I moved off campus.

There are so many majors at this university even though it is small. . Every major and program at this university is amazing; the only major or minor that I have noticed missing is dance (which there are classes for FREE at jerabeck.) I am a music major, and there are plenty of opportunities for performance, part-time teaching, and being involved in church music in the Houston area. The department also rents out musicians to perform at campus events. I love the opportunities that I have received in the music department. My friend, who is involved in the sciences, was already interviewing for an internship when she was a freshman! I would say that opportunities within your major are pretty amazing, and definitely give you the upper hand when you graduate.

The Academic Mall is beautiful, especially at dusk when the sun is setting. The University is planted right in the middle of Montrose, one of the trendiest neighborhoods in the city, allowing for an incredible social life. Concerts are just down the road, and nightlife is not far at all. Coffeeshops are walkable, as are nearby bars and restaurants. It's the heat that difficult to bear! I'm glad the campus is small because when it's 104 outside, walking from class to class makes anyone break a sweat. The Academics are great, but for me it's the location that works the best.
