What Students Are Saying

3.88 Average Rating
Take advantage of everything offered your freshman year. The classes are easiest your first year so do not mess up. Try to attend events held on campus since your money funds them, and balance your social and school life.
Simberly from Houston, TX
Apply for the fall session as early as possible due to the limited amount of students that are accepted.
Also, apply for housing early because the dorms get filled up fast.
Your textbooks can be purchase through the campus bookstore or Amazon.
Nicholas from Katy, TX
This school will help in achieving the academic goals of anyone that commits into being successful. There ar small classes in which one will have the opportunity to speak with the professors and ask for help.
Learn to ask for help, because everybody at UST is willing to give it!
Lily from Houston, TX
Take advantage of the small classes! Get to know your professors and definitely go to class. Also take advantage of the tutoring center. They are fantastic and almost everyone goes to them at least once. There is definitely no shame in going twice!
Alexandra from Houston, TX
Be sure to visit any school you are interested in and sit in on classes. Choose a place that is comfortable for you (not just because it has your major... because it will change. Believe me!) :-)
Karen, Houston, TX
Visit the school and go and sit in a class. Get a taste for what the interaction between students and professors is at UST.
Bianca from Humble, TX
Get to know your admissions counselors.
Try talking to current students.
Visit the campus.
Don't be afraid to sit in a few classes or tour the University.
Student
Incoming students should know not to by shy, to ask as many questions as they feel an impulse to, and to explore every club and activity available because there is always a group which will share your interests. Even if it isn't already an organized club because you can always make one with just three other people. The Catholic faith is present at the school but not overbearing or imposing on non-Catholic students, yet the school's values are based on a balance between faith and knowledge so it is a personal balance one is encouraged to achieve on one's personal faith values. New students should be prepared to be challenged to always place their greatest effort before every assignment, if one thing is certain it is that the professional level at which one is expected to perform not only in the classroom but transitioning into life, is ever expected. This doesn't mean creativity is stunted though; on the contrary it is encouraged to groom and grow into one's individual passions. An open mind is not optional because the sheer variety of different views will always be present and will often force one to think and consider.
