What Students Are Saying

3.19 Average Rating
Keep in mind that this is a University so there will be lots of hard work along with fun, even if it's not considered one of the best in the world, with the best college experience it does provide what you need. 1. Work hard 2. Don't play around especially if it's your first year because it'll be hard to pick yourself up again 3. Always remind yourself why your there or you may forget (hopefully it's to get an education not party!)
and have fun :D

If you need help just ask someone or a staff member. People are pretty friendly and are striving to get and education.
Bianca - Houston, TX
Get to know people since everyone has connected to fields that you may way to go in. Try to get into clubs that help you with tuition and help you meet new potential friends. Study groups are a must to help you succeed in the upper-level classes.

If you're not into the overwhelming big university feeling, then this is the school for you. Even though it is a small university compared to most, it is pretty cool.
