My school was nothing less than amazing! Though I went to community college first, I graduated from University of Houston - Clear Lake, and I couldn't be more proud to say that. Everyone, from administrators to professors, were the most helpful people I have ever met. If I had a chance to choose any school to spend my entire academic career at, it would be this school. I met some of my best friends here, and worked with the best professors. I couldn't recommend this school highly enough!

UHCL is a great school with passionate teachers who genuinely care about student learning. Professors are always accessible during office hours and the campus community feels this through the low student-teacher ratio. People of all walks of life can expect to feel accepted and validated by the administration.
