Quincy University

Oct 31, 2022
Current Student

If you have a choice between this school and another choose the other, you do no get your money worth especially education wise. The staff and school do not do well with communicate with students and it has lead to many students not graduating on time. As there is no guidance and many are left to fend for themselves even after asking for help. Not to mention the school has raised tuition twice and will rise a third in a span of 3 years.

University of Houston

Oct 30, 2022

UH is slowly transforming itself from the almost total commuter school it was a generation back. It has a very diverse student population and incredible abundance of course offerings. Because it yet remains pretty much a commuter school, there remains room for improvement in attendance for most on-campus events.

Texas State University

Oct 29, 2022

Rich with opportunities for growth, Texas State University provides a variety of courses/majors and a reputation for being a party school that I doubt it will ever overcome. Because it IS fun. But you can "party" at any school if you want to, and/or you can grow, learn and network if that is your choice. Set in the charming little city of San Marcos, in the heart of the hill country between Austin and San Antonio, opportunities for exploring nature abound, but the campus itself offers beautiful spaces for studying or resting between classes. The town is much more commercialized now (with nationwide chains rather than the unique sorts of mom&pop restaurants and shops). My time at Texas State University did support questioning, as I'm prone to believe any higher educational institution should. I am strong in my faith and only became stronger during my years at SWT (as it was known then.) During my freshman orientation, I established my church home away from home and attended regularly (not that I never attended a frat party or went out. I did. ) I still see my classmates excelling in our teaching field to this day. I have taught PK-12 with excellent reviews from my administration in all levels and my students have also excelled. As for the extracurricular activities, I still love river tubing and hiking. I do wish I'd taken canoeing while I had the chance!
