According to the online rating company, GreatValueColleges.net, the University of Houston – Main Campus is ranked 19th in the US for not only being affordable, but also for having a beautiful campus. Indeed, it is a great campus at 667 acres filled with tremendous art-deco buildings, works of art such as sculptures and fountains, hike and bike trails, numerous gardens, and of course old growth trees.
The University of Houston has invested over $220 million to improve its campus. “UH is the first state university in Texas to establish a Percent for the Art program, dedicating one percent of the budget for each new building for public art. Today, the main campus has more than 260 pieces of public art on display.”
The popularity of UH is growing each year as it attains such national recognition. From its amazing UH football team to its strong academic and research departments in every discipline, its affect on the neighboring areas can be seen and felt almost everyday.
The third ward that surrounds UH is changing with many areas of it being revitalized right now. What the third ward used to be is not what it is today. Sure it will still take more time but the amount of effort being made now is truly remarkable. The new MetroRail now has a leg that travels to UH and this will for sure help the immediate areas as far as EaDo, Midtown and Downtown grow and become popular areas to live.
