Something about the safety at UH... Today I got an email ONCE AGAIN from the UHDPS about a robbery that took place on campus. This has been the third email in 2 weeks about a robbery at UH!

I think people misunderstand the rankings. The ranking can go down if the students switch majors, don't graduate withing xx years and all this. Anyway that is what US news goes by. That dosen't make a College "easy". Just because U of H has softer admission requirements dosen't mean they pass everybody who just goes to class. I think if they had more applicants they could be more pick.. like UT can be picky because there are way more applicants than they have space.

I wouldn't let the crime stat scare me. I went to Univ. of St. Thomas for my masters -and they had several robberys and attempts within a couple of month period for a while. That happens anywhere -- common sense and caution of your surroundings are about the best anyone can do these days. I attend UH-Clear Lake as well and thoroughly enjoyed my time there and must admit that I thought it was much more difficult and had many more amenities (better library, gym, computing centers) than did St. Thomas at about 1/3 of the cost.

That's true. There was an incident that happened on the campus of HBU during the winter break. One of the professors offices were broken into. She also discovered they left a knife under her desk.

Sort of like at UST - why is it $2200 for one 3 credit hour course - the money you pay isn't necessarily for security. UHCL seemed to have decent security. UST's security rode around in a golf cart on a rare occasion. Just use caution.

I got that email, too. The last two robberies were both on Saturdays, one at midnight and one at noon.

I looked up crime statistics for UH - here they are.
