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.

The campus is the perfect size, not too big and not too small. The student to professor ratio is perfect. You get to meet people from all walks of life! I wish the Dorms would be a bit bigger. The food is decent but I feel like they can step it up a bit. The student life should put together more events. The dorms could be updated a little more. The university should have more sports. They should include a basketball team and a football team. And the university should develop a student recreational center for students to just hang out and play games and enjoy the full college student experience.
This college is overall really easy to apply to and is very affordable. Talking to the recruiters was actually nice, they were always willing to answer any questions I have and make the application process as easy as possible. The campus is small and cute, which is exactly how I like it. It is not so much of a party school, but the campus does put out a lot of clubs, activities, and small social gatherings to make it more lively. The food is pretty good, I love the selections and that they change everyday so we have a variety. The dorms are a good size and have everything you could possibly need. The classes are small so you really get that one-on-one teaching experience with the professor, which is a great bonus. I do not have much to complain about and cannot wait to come back for another school year.
