Out of the three universities that I attended, this was by far the best.  UH has a job center that can get you internships and future jobs, WELL WORTH IT!  While I say this, each department at UH is fairly different; each department is like a fiefdom.  I was in the ECE department where the professors were present during their office hours, and were very willing to help the students.  When I had to take classes under other colleges, like science, the quality was poorer.  Language and Liberal arts seemed to be average quality.  However, the professors and staff in the Electrical Engineering department were mostly top notch.  They were tough, but I learned a lot.  From reading these forums it seems like people were expecting friends to flock to them.  UH was like the rest of life, you get out of it what you put in.  I have friends from my time at UH that I will have for the rest of my life.  There are a ton of social societies and different things to do, you just have to look.  My best experiences were with professors Dr.  Dave and Dr.  Barr.  The worst was an Indian TA in the math department that wrote on a white board with a yellow highlighter (once).  Overall, my good experiences vastly outnumbered my bad ones.  The public spaces are mostly nice, and there are plenty of good places to study, eat, and socialize.  I am hoping to return for my masters.
