Transcript The Great Meeting Place Freshmen find ways to connect with other Cougars Hello, ladies... Sophomore political science major Nick Somprakis says hello to other students at the UH Valentines Day Organizations Expo. Such events helped new students get to know their fellow Cougars throughout the year. Photo by Sadaf F. Farooqui With a student body larger than the population of many of Houston's suburbs, UH is by no means a small school. For a freshman entering the university after leaving a small, comfortable high school, however, that number seemed to grow into the millions.

Sophomore university studies major Courtney Wheeler speculated that living on campus might have given students a very different college experience than commuting, as those who came home to the residential halls were surrounded by their fellow students night and day. "If you don't live on campus, you probably just go to your classes and then go home, so there aren't a lot of opportunities to talk to new people," Wheeler said. "If you live in the dorms, you'll spend a lot more time with your classmates." joining clubs also proved to be an excellent way of meeting others, and many new students turned to the numerous bulletin boards on campus to find people with similar interests. by Cortney Martin Meeting People <17%
