Transcript Where do UH students come froni? When school let out for the holidays, it was no secret that most students didn't have to catch a plane or spend hours on the road to get back home. The majority of UH students hailed from Houston and its surrounding communities, with the majority of those choosing to commute from home rather than live on campus. For these students, the decision to choose UH was not a difficult one. After all, who could resist the combination of an inexpensive education and a convenient location? "I came to U of H because it's affordable, close to home and a good school," freshman finance major Roger Jackson, a native of Hitchcock, Texas in the Galveston area. An eclectic mix of students took up residence in the dorms. Some came from areas only a short drive from UH but wanted the "college experience," while others were from just far enough outside Houston that commuting wasn't practical. Still, there were a few who moved to Houston specifically to attend UH. Freshman University Studies major Marquia Johnson, who graduated from high school in Lawton, Oklahoma, decided that attending UH was worth leaving home and paying out- of-state student fees. "I decided to come here because this school was the best choice out of my list of colleges in high school," Johnson said. by Cortney Martin UH attracted students from all over Houston and beyond. 4 Not in Kansas anymore Vehicles with out-of-state license plates line the UH parking lot every day. Though primarily a commuter school, UH attracted students from ot her cities and states. photo by Laura Moreno An athlete, perhaps?
