University of Houston - Victoria Reviews
The University of Houston-Victoria has been FANTASTIC to my friends and I! Their financial aid, advisor, and teacher offices are easy to locate access. Their library has friendly, helpful staff that has assisted me a couple times when I needed help or had questions. Before attending the University of Houston-Victoria, I attended a different university in San Antonio, Texas as well as one in Beeville, Texas. The University of Houston-Victoria has been my favorite university between the three of them. I definitely recommend my younger siblings to eventually attend college here and guarantee them that they will NOT regret it! This school has been the best decision I've made regarding colleges, without a doubt.
I have taken nearly a dozen online classes from UHV and it has been an overall very good experience. The teachers are all required to understand how to operate the school's existing online platform, and the online platform is extremely stable. A few teachers struggled to communicate effectively as they taught online classes for the first time after the changes brought by COVID but they also tried their best to help the students succeed and worked with us to ensure all material was effectively covered.
This school's administration is excellent, when the changes necessary for COVID occurred over the spring break of 2020, there was no interruption in classes and all services that could remain open have done so. The only complaint that I have for the school is that some teachers are disorganized and handle online classes haphazardly, reusing years-old syllabuses and similar things to save effort instead of investing in the students of each class.
