School Counselors

Houston Christian University offers an intimate college environment in the heart of one of the most vibrant and diverse cities in the United States: Houston, Texas. Coming to HCU as a student is about more than books, tests, and lectures. It is about stepping into a community where each person is recognized as a distinct individual. HCU strives to not only develop each student academically but spiritually, physically, and relationally as well.
