University of Houston Reviews
University of Houston is a phenomenal school to invest the next 4 years of your life as well as money! For a university level education, it is very affordable and located in an area where living is also very affordable. Even if the school is considered a commuter school there are many organizations ( fraternity, sorority, dance teams, anime club, business clubs ) students can join to make friends and feel more involved in the community. The university offers many majors, 2 professional schools, and many graduate programs. They have branches all over the state of Texas. This university is reputable where freshly graduates do not have trouble finding a job! It is located in an area where major companies or the company of your dreams will hire fresh graduate students full time or offer internships . I would highly recommend this University!
My experience at the University of Houston is amazing! I was used to going to a community college but it's so different once I stepped on UH ground. From the beginning, I was able to see the enthusiasm, through emails, through orientations, through professors, technology, going-green inspiration, and as I walk to my class, you name it. I like how much transportation it provides and a variety of resources for a student's life inside and outside of classes. If there's anything I would change, it would be the prices at the bookstore, it can be a little pricey personally, but other than that, it's amazing!
I love the University of Houston! They are very patient with anyone who may have questions with registration, transferring credits, and so many other things. There are tons of organizations for students to join and facilities that offer help with both studies and mental health. The atmosphere is fun, welcoming, and so diverse! However, I do wish that they could exchange some of the faculty in the math and science. Many of the professors are researchers, not teachers. They have no patience, and students taking their classes do not high chances of succeeding or even understanding important material. This is one thing I would change; however, the pros definitely out weigh the cons!
