|The community gave me a wonderful living-on campus experience, it also gave me access to many academic and social opportunities. The community helped me create new friends and to connect with like-minded intellectuals which truly gave me the feeling that I was participating in something special. I was able to share once-in-a-lifetime experiences among good friends and learn new things from others and from myself. I became a better man, a better friend, and a better student, because of this opportunity to live in a living-learning community. – Jose Vasquez|
|"When living in the Minority Male Living Learning Community for the 2019-2020 school year I did not know what to expect. I had just transferred to UH and was very excited about getting a fresh start, but also very nervous about UH's size. Living in a community like this gave me a great opportunity to not only meet people who were like-minded but also forced me to get out of my comfort zone. While living in The Minority Male Living-Learning Community I was urged to join several student organizations, and have since then found my home at The University of Houston. I want to say thank you to Mr. Bell & The MMLLC for providing me with a community that felt like a family environment, but also welcomed me to UH with open arms!" – Brian Kirksey|
