  • Get you connected to campus activities, clubs and organizations
  • Help you to navigate the UH campus
  • Learn strategies for being successful in your classes (ex. how to interact with your professors, organize study groups, etc.)

What I love most about the ELASP program is that it provides a safe environment for new students to be themselves and to make connections with other student who are in the same boat. I have learned first-hand that ELASP can provide students with so many resources that can be used not only in their first semester but also throughout their entire time at the University of Houston.

I love how the ELASP program allowed me to smoothly transition into the Bauer College of Business. The program's commitment to organizing business-focused workshops and networking events with well-known companies greatly contributed to my professional development. Additionally, the opportunity to connect with fellow transfer students while developing practical skills enhanced my experience.
