Apply for your financial aid very, very early. Get into study groups for all your classes, there is strength in numbers. Study most as you can, school first, work second and not last.

    This school is very small but that is not a bad thing. The students have the ability to interact with their professors and that is extremely beneficial. I was skeptical about the school, but now I enjoy it.

    In downtown, UHD is a lively place. Being a commuter, this is wonderful, due to it being a commuter campus! UHD is very cheap and I recommend it quite a lot!

    A school where you're class size is small so that means a lot of chances to know your professor and understand their methods of teaching. It's easy to meet new people and develop friendships. Naturally, everyone helps each other strive for success.

    Its a wonderful experience coming to this University as a first in the family to go to college. The classes are small so you have a good chance to know the professor and even understand more in lectures. You may not have the dorm and all that good stuff experience but what really does matter is getting a degree and what you really did in school while studying.

    Attending this university is an amazing option for people who don't have the money for colleges like the main campus and it does offer many opportunities for students to explore careers. The orientation of the school in the middle of downtown can be daunting for some when it comes to Houston traffic, but as far as I can see many students who live up to an hour away are willing to make the journey. Also, this is an up and coming school that just built an entirely new wing in the main building for research rooms and for health classes in order to make room for the new Health major that will be offered there in the fall of 2015.
