Transcript Likes & bisLikes Houston's population was 1.9 million in 2002, with Lee P. Brown as Mayor. _^ PROS ANV CONS Of LIVING IN HOUSTON What Loas Liked... Anyone could walk into a one of Houston's bars and see the diversity. Citizens found that it was very interesting to learn from others about the different cultures that occupied our melting pot city. "I just think one of the most interesting aspects of Houston is it's diversity," said senior education major Dixie Chalupa. Houston's diversity brought festivals and places to hang out, and opened the minds of people who actually dwelled in the city. Unlike other cities in the state, Houston seemed to be the center for culture in Texas. "One of the best things is the diversity. This is the only city in Texas that you would consider to be truly an international city. Dallas is a poser," said senior media production major Calos Tovar. Another thing Houstonians loved about Houston was its vast amount of entertainment. There was almost always something to do. "I have lived just outside of the city most of my life, and I love it here. Houston has so much to offer and you can almost always find something to do," said management information systems senior Alex Federovich. -Michelle Lehmann NOT TRANSCO ANYMORE ^vTlHams Tower stands proudly over the Galleria as me of Houston's tallest buildings. The once named Transco Tower was the tallest building outside of the actual downtown area of a city. _Heather Nicholson ill ■ \lT%k» What was disLiked... Just like any inhabitants, Houstonians had issues with their hometown. The communter routes took the cake. "The sidewalks are so bad in Houston where they exist, that it's difficult to walk anywhere without walking in the street. How can Houston be a real city if you can't walk on the sidewalk," said post baccalaureate Russell Moore. Problems with smog, traffic and the constant construction of roads and buildings often caused people frustration with commuting about the city. Houston was a city of rapid growth, especially after the '60's. However many felt it was growing too fast and losing its priorities. "One thing I don't like about it is how fast it's growing, because I am afraid it will lose it's hometown atmosphere," said senior education major Dixie Chalupa. Houston was definitely going through some changes at the turn of the millenium. Citizens kept theirfingers crossed as to how much it would change and how much better it would become. -Michelle Lehmann
