What Students Are Saying

3.79 Average Rating
being in the honors college, the classes are more rigorous but not impossible. since there are less students in your classes you can get together with them and form study groups and increase your understanding of the curriculum. the only reason there is for failing any classes in the honors college is not trying.
Christopher from Houston, TX
the academic curriculum is very good. no matter the size of the classroom being of 550 students or a lab of 20 students i was impressively surprised on how personal and passionate all of my professors were of making sure all of us students succeeded. college courses consist of mainly lectures so get ready for a lot of independent study. the campus involves a faculty of teachers who want to see students do well and not just grade them as another number without a name.
