Thinking of Transferring to UH..

...main campus. I've been attending SFA for the past year and a half and I'm sick of driving to and from Nacogdoches every F'n week...also there isn't for nightime riding out there because any streets aside from the "city" streets are pitch black once the sun goes down. I miss BW8 and PP1 and even though the drama sucks I miss hanging with my MH peeps...

Does anyone from this site go to school at UH main campus and if so what do ya'll like/dislike about the school. Any biology majors? I compared my completed biology classes to the ones that UH offers and NONE of my biology credits would be applied towards a Bachelor of Science degree (how crappy is that?!). Any advice would be appreciated, thanks yall!

I've seen the UH campus get a little nicer but not to justify the cost of tuition, Cullen is a of a road and UH is located in the hood.
I'll be here until the end of the Spring semester. It will probably take me another semester at UH to complete the biology courses if I take 16 or 17 hours a semester...which really isnt that bad, I just feel jipped because I worked my off to get good grades.
Tuition-wise, I was actually surprised...UH is cheaper, go figure. I originally picked SFA because I was told that it was the cheapest university in TX but I guess not. I've never actually visited the campus so I don't know what the area looks like, but I volunteer at an ambulance station near the hood, so I can take ghetto as long as I dont get mugged in between classes. Did you go to UH?

SFA would be a lot easier to graduate with a NSM (natural science and math) degree but i think i'll get more out of UH. what does your bro major in?

I'm a UH grad. I think the school is great.

As far as transferring credits, I would talk to a faculty advisor, and they can work with you and possibly transfer up to 60 hours. Good luck!

I say the best thing to do would be transfer over for a semester and see how you like it in comparison. Whats the worse that can happen?

You should check to see how many hours you'd have left to take at UH. They have a minimum number of hours you MUST take AT UH in order to get your degree from them. If you're close enough to finishing at SFA, I'd just finish out there so you don't have to add more time and BS classes at UH just to meet the minimum hours at the school to get your degree from there.

UH c/o 2003 here.

Alot of $$$$$$ has filtered into UH since I was there! I think it was a great school. (B.Arch. '91)

With all that money, it must be an even better school than it was before.

What do you plan to do with your Biology Major? That may determine which school you should attend to get that Degree from.

Not sure if it is worth taken an entire semester all over again.

Make sure you differentiate between UH-D and UH-Main, they may transfer different classes. Aren't you in NW Houston? UH-Main is quite a drive from that area.

Look at it this way, at least up there you stay out of trouble.

The upper level classes were ok - some were actually pretty good.

Lower level classes were a joke.

Twice I was accused of plagiarism (and threatened with disciplinary action) by a professor because, "your paper was too good to have been written by a student in this class."

I just wanted to say, ", I barely even did any research for that paper I pretty much B.S.'d the whole thing, but thanks for the compliment.

*I did find it funny that prof.s can catch a whole wave of for leveling plagiarism accusations without any merit.

well most have plagiarism software that they use. they usually do a lot of research before they confront you with it. my mom is a teacher and i was an english major...i remember a whole bunch of people in my advanced writing class getting caught with the software.

Guess my anthropology proff. should have used that before he failed me for plagiarism.

I went straight to the dean and showed him my notes, outlines and other examples of my writing. The dean asked, "on what grounds did he base his conclusion that you plagiarized?" I told him he said the paper was too good, and that was it.

I think that proff. taught for about another week before the T.A. took over full-time. Never saw him again.

Consider looking into UH downtown campus- cheaper tuition and smaller classes. Plus they have a super BIO program. I'm a chem major, but know a lot of ppl who are premed- bio. They offer a lot of opportunity for scholarships and a lot of peer and faculty mentor for all such students.

Im in class right now at UH-d and the campus is pretty nice. I personally like the facilities at UH-main tho. But the big plus is that the walk from class to class is shorter
