Student & Graduate Reviews (32)
The University of Houston offers a unique college experience in the middle of America's 3rd largest city. The student body is incredibly diverse. Houston in general is known for being a hub for diversity and multi-culturalism in America, and its University absolutely complements that. Professors here love what they do, at least the ones I have had do. Among having esteemed professors that are receptive and provide feedback, there are many opportunities to receive supplementary tutoring through a variety of organizations and clubs around campus. In addition to this, there are many other clubs - social, academic, and professional - that can enrich your campus experience and introduce you to new peers and networks.
The University of Houston is an excellent institution that continues to improve as it ages. President Renu Khator has done an outstanding job pursuing the advancement of this University from receiving the title of Tier One to the development of their football team. The tuition is fair and financial aid office offers many opportunities for earning more aid- from work study to the B-on-Time loan. My professors have been wonderful instructors and Kinesiology degree plan has been quite rigorous, which will prepare me as a pursue a degree in Physical Therapy. The parking situation leaves something to be desired as there may not be enough parking spaces for all of the students whom attend the university. The prices for the parking permits continue to rise along with the price of the parking citations and the number of security guards looking to give out citations. The safety of the campus leaves something to be desired as there is almost a bi-weekly report of a dangerous incident on campus- from a student or faculty member being robbed at gunpoint to a car backfire. The university recreation center is excellent, however I have heard now they are limiting which students can have access to it, which I am hoping is also reflected in their tuition. There are continuous developments ongoing in this university from the renovation of the student center, to dorm rooms and living facilities to the athletic center. Many of whom have graduated long ago may not be able to recognize it anymore, and it may be for the best. However there are still certain things to improve on, which I hope those in the position to produce change are striving for.
The campus is in a central location in the city. There are multiple light rail stops on the metro-rail if you live off campus and do not want to deal with the parking meters, they are sticklers and it is not always a guarentee despite having a parking pass.
The University of Houston is an amazing campus to gain a useful education. There are both diverse faculty members and students and a variety of extracurricular activities to become involved in. The campus is beautiful and has wonderful public transportation. Although majority of students do not live on campus there are a variety of resources for students who choose to live on campus. I was equally challenged and supported at this university and if you choose to attend I believe you will be as well.
UH is a great school that is the most underrated campus in Texas. You are not only in one of the largest cities in the US but also one of the most diverse. UH's campus reflects the city very well and provides a place to be challenged and innovative.
Pursuing my undergraduate and now graduate degree at the University of Houston has been one of the most rewarding experiences. The college of liberal arts and social sciences is not only one of the largest but also one of the most diverse in terms of all the different students that you will encounter. My professors for anthropology pushed me to think critically and to further understand the world around me with complete insight. As a graduate student, I can also say that not only are these some of the best professors to work with, but that they really do care about student success. A big part of choosing to continue my graduate studies at University of Houston was due to the professors I would be able to continue to learn from as they are all very knowledgeable and respected in their field.
The university is a great school for students planning to go into the energy sector, in terms of jobs. It also has a great business school, music school and architecture school. I recommend the honors program. It is top notch. There is limited campus engagement and is a predominantly commuter school.
The University of Houston, Bauer College of Business has an excellent program for business majors. The Bauer College of Business has its own career center, separate from the main Universities career center. The Bauer College of Business Career Center offers many opportunities for students to network with employers, and recruiters.
I greatly enjoyed my time at the University of Houston. I graduated in 2006 with a degree in Media Production. This degree would have been useful in the radio or television field, but I started teaching instead. From what I remember, the degree plan was very fun. I really enjoyed the opportunity to learn about AVI equipment and the overall production process in radio and television. The University offered quite a few degree options and classes to help me achieve my goals.
Natural Science and Mathematics is a great program to be in because it offers a wide range of possible careers and prepares you well. The educators that are at the University of Houston are prepared to take students through demanding courses to better prepare the students in highly competitive careers.
