Student Reviews:

Reviews
As a Recent graduate of UHCL, I feel like I've received a well-rounded education despite the university being of humble size. The campus is located on a nature preserve, so there are animals like dear often seen here. The student body is diverse with a sizeable amount of non-traditional students and International students (with a decent amount being from India). With the school being a lot smaller than UH main campus, there aren't too many clubs established yet or things going on campus every day. I took advantage of the opportunities that were offered to me, like going to workshops and going on the student leadership retreat and I can honestly say that I don't feel like I was deprived of the college experience by going here. Also, the school is growing with new buildings and more students being added each semester. I'm positive in time, the experience here will only get better.
