Transcript The University of Houston's amazing accomplishments sometimes fail to be felt by many members of the student body. The achievements of its faculty members, such as Paul Chu's work in superconductivity, however, are certainly recognized by students. There is a certain amount of pride involved in attending a university making such great strides that its name is often recognized in the media and has found its way into homes around the world. For all of the great events at the University of Houston, there are also many frustrations and disappointments. While research does not touch every student directly, students, at some point in their academic endeavors, realize that their education is what they make of it, and the university is full of opportunities. Still, it is difficult to feel "right at home" at UH. Administrative decisions, such as talk of the System's move on campus, make the student question the university's stablity. And when Cougar spirit was on the rise in the Astrodome, enthusiasm was answered with NCAA probation. Even the economic hard times in Houston could be blamed for some uneasiness — an uneasiness that usually can be traced to budget problems. While in many ways it is clear that the University of Houston is not fully a student- oriented university, it is making great strides, and in the eyes of us all, it is the only place like home.
