I will say that for the just concluded 5 months semester my experience in some cases are well perceived and gave me a lot experiences each semester as I go higher in my academic life, first I will say some of my classses the instructor is well informed and known the course given to him or her to teach in some cases they don't, which put a lot of work hard on the study in other study more to meet put with the course requirements. But in over all I will confidently say that some of the classes which mainly are required course in my field of study are positive experiences for me, I will confidently say to any individual wishing to take a course in Huston Tillotson University to first go through the enrollment management to get the required courses for his or her classes

Good learning experience, Professors are awesome and willing to help you succeed. Expensive but worth it
HT was founded in 1881, the facilities are dated. They are in the process of updating throughout the campus. The athletic department is one of those facilities that is being updated to help with the number of athletes the school is bringing in. School/fan support/spirit is high on any sports day.
