What Students Are Saying

3.55 Average Rating
do not get distracted by campus activities and don't let other people influence you into doing things you don't want to do.
Makeda from Houston, TX
Have everything in order and don't be afraid to ask questions or for help!
LaTera from Texas City, TX
Being in college for over one semester has opened my eyes to a lot of things. When I was in high school, I dispelled many of the college myths, and I never envisioned college to be different from high school. I will advise prospective students to do the same, if I had a chance to go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior I would advise myself to be careful of the people I surround myself with, become more involved in extracurricular activities, and to budget my money wisely. Firstly I will advise myself to be careful of the people I associate with to avoid negative influences. Moreover, I will also advise myself to be very involved in extracurricular activities as this will help increase my network and hone my leadership abilities. Finally, I will advise myself to budget and spend resourcefully because college expenses are constantly on the rise and it is only wise to spend intelligently and save for the rainy days to come. College has been a learning experience for me and I hope to continue to provide for my institution. It is not what the institution can do for you; it is about what you can do for your institution.

Students who are considering Texas Southern should visit first and make sure this is the school for them. If your looking for a small teacher to student ratio then this is a great place. The school does have a lot of parties and activities constantly going on so I would say you should be ready to manage your time wisely. Lastly, be ready to work hard, be aware of the people you associate with, and most importantly don't be afraid college is a great place!
Shelby from Cedar Hill, TX
Get registered to the best teachers and on time. Be prepared always. Get enough scan-trons that you will need, because you might not like the lines for the other students who are trying to get scan-trons too.
Itemobong from Houston, TX
To get funding for this school you should stay on top of all required paper work for aid etc.
If you really need something you must be humble no matter what because any signs of attitude or disrespect due to anger will put you at the back of the line.
Latrisha from Houston, TX
Every student must have his or her priority straight. Parties are always going to be there, so get your work been FIRST. It is not good to be the life of the party but the failing your class. Put school first.
ANNIE from Houston, TX
always make at least two or three copies of everything
daniel from houston, tx
Write down yearly goals of what you'll like to accomplish during your tenure at TSU (post it on your wall to keep you focus). Utilize the writing lab on campus to quickly upgrade your writing skills from a high school level to a collegiate level. Be friendly, keep a smile, and don't try to impress people .... you're not going to be friends with everyone but it's good practice to be social b/c you actually might develop long-term friendships, find your soul mate, or make valuable connections.
