Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

Its very divers and they try their best to create events for the whole school to join in and do. But maybe if they fixed up some of the bathrooms in moody Towers, or payed more attention in how they make breakfast, and meals over the weekend, this would bee a very nice school. They education is good for the price, I almost believe that people just think it's a bad school because it's placed in Third Ward of Houston, other than that, pretty much everything's fine.


Overall Rating

The University of Houston is an amazing school that focuses primarily on the students and there academics. The school is not known as a party school the University of Houston is highly known for there academics as well as there beautiful campus located in the heart of downtown Houston. The school has been being renovated the past couple of years but is now highly up to date with today's modern life. The University of Houston is a beautiful campus that will promise there students to be able to get a good education and set their students in the right track to start there life off right.
