    --I love that it is a big school because it is not like high school where everyone knows everyone. However, because it is a big school, you have to have some more initiative to get things done and get to know people. Otherwise, you will be invisible to your professors and other students. --Get to know your professors: Go to office hours. Talk to them before or after class. Maybe even sign up for a workshop they are teaching. Trust me, it goes a long way to get to know them. They can offer letters of recommendation or tell you about research and other enrichment opportunities. --Get involved: Join a club or do some volunteering, especially if you want to make the school seem a little smaller. Joining a club will make it easier to get to know people, and it looks good if you are planning to go beyond a bachelor's degree. --Get to know and use the resources: Because UofH is big, it has so many resources. No one knows ALL of them, but there is tutoring, workshops, career development, advising for pre-professionals, and much much more. Seek out what you need; UofH probably has it.

    Learn your way around campus for it is a big university after all. Join a few of the several clubs offered at UH, and take advantage of your teachers, for they are truly there to help you.

    Do not expect all of your transfer credits to go through because they will not since they have their own university curriculum that does not match other college. It is better to start and finish there.
