    UH has an extensive campus tailored to just about every field of study possible. Their auxiliary services could use some work, but the learning experience seems to be solid. The students are very diverse - it is a majority-minority campus.

  • May-28-2015 I am researching this school and have visited the campus

    I went to visit U of H, and the campus was just breathtaking plus it is 1 of the 3 tier-one institutions in the Nation. My favorite building would have to be the Recreational Center which is buzzing with activity, and has the 2nd tallest Mountain climbing wall in Texas. My 2nd favorite building would be the school of Architecture which is ranked 22 in the Nation.

    UofH is a large institution with various amenities. It is a very ethnically and culturally diverse campus. It can be expensive compared to HCC, but it is a great school and is academically rigorous.

    It is better than people think. Although it does at times feel like a commuter campus, there are dozens of clubs to be involved in in order to curb that feeling. This university will be what you make of it.

    It's my first, and only, university, but I like it. It's very fun, and there's a lot to do, and a lot of places to eat at, and the teacher's are exceptional. It is deserving of being a Tier One university.

    The University of Houston is a great place to be if you are wanting to work and go to school because they make sure you are able to get to your job on time. The majority of students are commuters so you are not alone if you are taking 2 or 3 classes. I would recommend a small amount of classes because teachers grade very strictly.
