THE NOT-SO-TYPICAL STUDENTS OF UHCL
Since UHCL was originally founded as a non-traditional university, much has changed. With the addition of freshmen and sophomores has come even greater sense of diversity. So, are we the “typical” college students?
“I don’t believe we have a typical student; that’s what makes us so special!” said Interim Dean of Students David Rachita. “So I guess I’d say that our typical student is a-typical!”
Beyond all the statistics, how do the “typical” UHCL students describe themselves? When students were asked to use one word to do so, it became clear that most of us don’t see ourselves as “typical” college students.
Responses included: Committed. Determined. Driven. Creative. Passionate. Studious. Busy. Dedicated. Ambitious. Resilient. Strategic. Organized. Reliable. Smart.
Ultimately, we are the people of UHCL.
“I love the environment and I love the people. Everyone is so nice, and we have such a great administration.”
