University of Houston Reviews
My time at the University of Houston Main campus I had such an amazing experience from my first semester all the way to graduation day I feel confident on achieving my goals every semester. Academic Advisors were available and assigned to you to help you finish your POS (Program of Study) on time. From student life, organizations, etc.. U of H had many personal and professional enrichment opportunities. I graduated from Bauer College of Business with a B.A. Degree focused in Marketing in 2014. As a first-generation student having the opportunity to further my knowledge skills within University of Houston made me a better individual personally and professionally. Such an amazing school and system!
I love the University of Houston! Go coogs! It is my first semester there and the campus is beautiful. I have never seen such a diverse school. The University of Houston is ranked the second most diverse public university in the United States. There is plenty to do on campus from eat and athletic events to student organizations. They even hold a volunteer fair so you can get more involved in the community. The education and staff are all amazing and Bauer college specifically is amazing. You have your own resources there. I was bummed out at first for not getting into a different University, but now that I'm here, I wouldn't want it any other way. Just be sure to wear rain boots on a rainy day!
University of Houston is a very diverse school. Every day I walk on campus you see an array of people from different places. There are a lot of resources available on campus from counseling to traveling abroad. Academics depends on the college, where I would Bauer is excels in its subject compare to others. School spirit is greatly shown here, where every Friday every one wears their school color, which is red. Overall the people here are friendly and understanding, and there is something for everyone!
