These schools are similar to University of Houston-Clear Lake in key aspects like size, setting, and academics.
100% of students
They're very student body focused
The prices of the gym and dorms and apartments and stuff
I enjoyed that it is a small university without sports teams or large extracurriculars. The school is for school and facilitated its students by having a wide range of subjects to study from Engineering to Business, and devotes much of its focus to STEM field careers.
Lack of networking for alumni who no longer live in the state of Texas. Many, so many, deer roam the campus so you need to drive very carefully at all times of the year. Proximity to a local high school that has very dangerous traffic in the morning and afternoon. The professors were not always the most approachable, and some would not allow for adjustments during the pandemic.
The campus is very socially aware, diverse, and activism-driven.
Be aware that not many classes/ professors are offered. Some classes are offered once a year with limited choices with professors.
