huseinl - 11/13/2016
Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2015
"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."

Degree: Art & Design
Graduation Year: 2006
"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."

Amanda Anderson - 8/9/2016
Degree: Hospitality Management
Graduation Year: 2014
"The University of Houston is the most progressive university in Texas today. The entire state covers 268,597 square miles. That's 7% of the land mass for the United States! With all of that space, you're bound to find some amazing and well established institutions for higher education - UT- Austin and Texas A&M to name a few. While the University of Houston (UH) hasn't been in direct competition with these two entities, the recent announcements of obtaining Tier One Research University status, being awarded a Phi Beta Kappa chapter, and dominating the football field in 2015 as put UH in position to become the best university in Texas. As an undergrad attending the one of the top hospitality schools in the country, the Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management at UH, I had access to local, national and global networking events. Everyday in class was an opportunity to learn not only the curriculum, but also the soft, personal skills it takes to be successful in the industry and in life. Hilton College and UH have greatly prepared me for where I am going. I am now enrolled to start my graduate degree program for Fall 2016 at the University of Houston."

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2010
"Your journey at UH is what you make of it. You need to network by putting forth the effort to go and meet as many people and alumni as possible. I enjoyed meeting seasoned professionals as well as people my age. If you expect to just be welcomed into a professional network, maybe this school isn't community-oriented enough for you."

"It was a big campus with lots of activities going on. I really loved it. The only con was that it was not centered in a good neighborhood, other than that it was great."

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2011
"I enjoyed the University of Houston very much. I started off as a sculpture major and decided to switch to Studio Arts because I feel like the drawing and painting department had a lot more to offer. There were other very interesting classes to take as well like a class on the color white and color theory. Ceramics was a lot of fun, I learned a lot of different ways to express what I wanted to express. If I could do it over, I would probably focus more on painting, but I am glad to have learned everything that I did. I would like to go into Art Therapy and my skills learned at U of H are definitely handy. You know what, I wouldn't change a thing!"

"The University of Houston was a great school. The environment there seems much more vibrant since I attended (Newer facilities, stadium, etc.). The location was very convenient to where I lived and the classes I attended were a good size and teachers easily accessible which I liked."

"The University of Houston has a great campus and their professors are top notch. The knock on the university is that it is a commuter school, but the vibe around campus is changing and if you are willing to give your time to the university you will have a great experience."
