Texas Southern University may not be the best recognized school there is. Texas Southern University has created a welcoming environment for both international student, and natural born student. The School is known for having the best business, best Law School, and Best Pharmacy school. Although, there have been a lot of negative report about the school, which could also happen to any other school; the School police work very hard to make sure that the students are safe and in a perfect condition. The teachers work hand in hand with the students, to make sure that students are ready for the next semester or class and also the future
Review Your College
My school is very unique because of how strong and brave the campus has been for years, standing strong when others want to see it fall. My school is an HBCU or Historical Black College/University. It was built years ago for our ancestors to be able to get an education and to prove that we can when no one else believed. The diversity here is amazing and we welcome everyone that walks through those gates. We walk down this tiger walk and can feel or embrace its history and that's what makes us stronger. Going to an HBCU, you will see how we stick together and help one another, we have fun and participate in every school event, and most in importantly you can see the drive and determination to graduate and become successful amongst all our students; prove wrong anyone that has told us we could not make it. My HBCU is unique and going here has taught me that I am unique too.
Having been the second school I have transferred to in my college career, I have more experience than the average undergraduate student in terms of gauging and comparing one school to another. Texas Southern University is a school that has a professional teaching staff and a steadily improving commitment to the well-being of its students. Not only do I find what I need very quickly and am helped often when needed, but I also find that the camaraderie is also something that has a very strong presence among the student body. Of course, no school is perfect, but there aren't many things that I would even note to change from my point of view.
