I have been at UHCL since Spring of 2018, my first year I took half online, half face-to-face courses. Spring of 2019 I decided to take all online courses only because I have to commute an hour just to get to class. I would say that is probably my least favorite thing about attending UHCL. Otherwise, I think it is an awesome place to be a part of. It is still growing tremendously, for example, our new recreation center that opened last year. Academically, I have loved all of my professors so far. They have all pushed me to actually learn the material each semester. The student body is also always striving to get you connected somewhere where you see fit. I'm so happy to be a UHCL Hawk!

The staff at university of Houston clear lake are amazing. They are willing to put In the work to help you be successful. University of Houston clear lake’s staff members truly love their job and put in the time to make the university great. The thing I love most about the university is that it feels like home. University of Houston clear lake is a smaller university which means classes are smaller and more intimate. Something the university can do to improve is prove more classes per subject. Sometimes it becomes difficult to regrister for a class because they fill up so quickly. Overall the university is amazing!
If you want a great mix of practical and theoretical exercise science, the University of Houston- Clear Lake is the best program. They not only help their students with smaller and more focused classes, but they also make sure that there are opportunities for both studies and professional development. I would give it five stars for the undergraduate and masters programs.

The campus is very relaxing nestled in a wildlife preserve, and has a friendly with a diverse population of which both are constantly growing.
