Academics Rating

They need better physics two professors, because the only good physics professor that I had was in Physics one and she teaches physics two but not every year. The architecture workload isn't bad but I just wonder why they make you do some much first semester. And English classes should not have such hard graders. Not everyone is becoming an English major.


Academics Rating

The academics at the University of Houston highly stands out amongst other schools in Texas. UH is known for its great business program as well as there medical and engineering programs. One thing that I love about UH is how the counselors and advisors work so hard to get their students where they want to be.
