University of Houston-Downtown Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (4)
It is very affordable, and the administration does what it can to maximize value. However, the faculty is staffed by too many adjuncts who don't really seem to care to educate. Furthermore, the curriculum is almost always derived straight from text books, sometimes not matching the proper edition, which prevents a focus on concepts and instead becomes more about vocabulary.
My college experience was great. I did not live on campus, but I did still enjoy my time making friends and earning my degree.
It's a good value, and has a low bar for admissions. It's overall a good University for anyone keeping the cost of their degree down, or attempting to finish a degree with a spotty academic past.
I found that the instruction of upper level chemistry classes did not prepare me for the material I'm learning in my graduate program. I found myself teaching myself the material. I'm not saying all professors, but just choose wisely. Ask friends and see what the professors' learning styles are. I think one in particular used to teach us the easiest material and then put questions from a test bank on the exams. We were set up for failure. lol
