    you pay little, and receive a quality education. international students especially find this campus the most desirable due to the low cost (2x in state as opposed to 5x at ut/a&m).

    UH has a tuition rate lower than most universities out there, and the education is pretty worth it. The school is Tier 1, and recently got into a prestigious honor society (Phi Beta Kappa). The research opportunities are endless, the possibilities of change are present, and there is so much more. If you're willing to put in the effort and utilize the many resources that UH has to offer, then everything you do will lead to success.
