    They should hold it at Melcher 160, after an Accounting mid-term and before the guest speaker from Merrill Lynch, sponsored by MISSO and HBSA, who doesn't know of any internship opportunities at this time.

    Very strange place for a Republican debate. Shouldn't they have held it at Texas A & M or SMU, less diverse schools with Bush libraries?

    agreed, UH rep continues to grow academically. needs some improvement on # of applications and acceptance rates but already i think the school ranks 3rd in public schools behind UT and A&M and I think could surpass A&M academically in the near future.

    RE: Ipaman


    As a UH alum, that's crazy talk. The school will need a Phil Knight-esq donation before you can even consider that prediction

    Back on topic, I wonder if the topic of gun control on public university campuses will come up. UH was recently brought to the forefront of the debate:
    <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Slide from recent campus carry dialogue at UH, in response to faculty concerns about dangers from armed students: <a href="https://t.co/610RyhDZlf">pic.twitter.com/610RyhDZlf</a></p>&mdash; Jeff (@JeffintheBowtie) <a href="https://twitter.com/JeffintheBowtie/status/701898811115855872">February 22, 2016</a></blockquote>
    <script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

    By the way, this isn't official policy and neither has UH decided where guns will be allowed

    The GOP still doesn't want Bush stinking things up for them.

    Wish I could go. I'd probably get kicked out from laughing so much though.

    What?? Dude, I'm about as pro-UH as any Aggie you'll ever meet, but this is ridiculous. In terms of alumni donations, research funding, overall academic requirements, and a whole bevy of other reasons, UH is not in the same stratosphere as A&M. I'm not saying the gap hasn't closed, I'm just saying that there is no way UH is surpassing A&M academically in the "near future."

    I like UH a lot, and recommended to a lot of people, but you need to get real man....the chances of that happening are slim to none unless something major shakes up.

    Don't knock it. It's a great opportunity for UH and, by extension, the City of Houston. Proud of them snagging the event, even if they do have to host a clown show.

    You don't think they actually care about your poor ass?
