    There are food and dining on campus for the people who like to grab and eat on the go. Most of the food is affordable and easy on the wallet. There is a large area to sit down and eat as well as to go outside and eat.

    They have a starbucks, a burger place/breakfast sandwich place, chik-fil-a, a salad bar ( that is really good and the lady who works there is very sweet), subway and a pizza place. Overall, I prefer to eat the salads because they are huge and they are the healthiest option and I love that there is a starbucks as well (for obvious reasons).

    UHD located in Houston downtown, so near UHD, there are tons of restaurants that students can choose. In addition, UHD do have a large food restaurant, so there is no worries that student must go out to eat.

    Since it is a small campus there aren't many choices but what they have in the food court is healthy and good.

    There are sororities and fraternities that like to recruit a lot at the beginning of every year, and I have seen them do some step routines in the hallways every once i a while.
