University of Houston - Clear Lake Reviews
UHCL is expanding their campus, making for a better campus experience. Their is finally a cafe and a good size recreation center. One thing I do enjoy about the campus is I’ve never had a problem with parking, there has always been enough parking spots, unlike UH main. Another pro I can really appreciate is the admissions office, financial aids office, and etc. are very quick to answer your questions, theirs never a long wait to speak to someone, which is a amazing! One con I have with the campus in my opinion is there is never enough class availability! There is never enough classes that you need to take!
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!
UHCL is a great school with amazing people! It is smaller than most college campuses but I think that is the beauty of the school. I love the peaceful and cheerful environment of UHCL. I came in as a very scared freshamn but i have gained so much confidence and comfort from everyone around me. I got involved in many school activities and am proud to be a UHCL Hawk. I would love to see the amount of people that attend UHCL increase because the school is great!
