What I really like about the University ofBrightBiology
What I really like about the University of Houston is the people, they're pretty nice, and the school isn't as segregated as I thought it would be. I love living on campus, everything I need is within walking distance, and next semester, my classes will be in the same building as my dorm. Enough about what I like, let's talk about what I really don't like:

I'm an biomedical engineering major, and unfortunately made the mistake of doing honors. Now I'm stuck in a class called Human Situation that I absolutely hate. It will always be among the worst experiences I would have in this university. I don't appreciate how the Honors college forces students to take ten hours of Human Situation, because it's more geared toward liberal arts majors, not science and math majors. My advice is if you're going into the STEM field, think long and hard about doing honors. STEM classes are already hard as it is, please don't add more stress to yourself by taking a class that has zero benefits.

Question
In some ways, extra education was a waste.Quite BrightChemistry
In some ways, extra education was a waste. STEM has been in a recession/depression since the Sputnik era. UH had no concept of career counseling or advice when I was there, so no help there getting into a field that would have been more lucrative. The culture in the 70's was that the students were there for UH to collect tuition and fees, not that UH was there to serve the students. I hope that has changed.
