University of Houston is very much like anQuite BrightEnglish
University of Houston is very much like an oversized Junior College. The students aren't overly friendly or unfriendly, they just go for a couple of hours a day and leave. On campus life is almost not there at all at times. There is lots to do in the surrounding city, but a car is a must to reach anything. The surrounding neighborhood is NOT good. The school is great for natural science oriented majors including chem and bio, but HFAC and Social Sciences have suffered in the last couple years.

Question
UH gets a bad rap from the otherSuper BrilliantComputer Science
UH gets a bad rap from the other Texas schools, but I've found it to be a quality education and I've had a great time here. Although I had full rides to several schools(including Rice) I decided this place best fit my major interests. Not a great place to come if all you care about is education, the environment is pretty casual and extremely diverse. There is more to do here than anyone could possibly imagine, you just have to look around.
