And Counting Graphic

So many magnificent alumni have passed through the University of Houston’s doors throughout our storied history. Of 297,979 alumni, where do you fall? What is YOUR number? What great things have you accomplished with your degree from UH? In this edition, we’ll hear from a few alumni from the 297,979 and counting.

Hello UH Cougar Nation!

As your 2019-2020 UH Alumni Association Foundation (UHAAF) President, I am honored to welcome you to the fall edition of Alumline. I am ready to lead the charge to engage with our alumni during upcoming events, and through a publication such as this! From interesting Coogs you should know to 50-year celebrations of Hilton College to Public Art program, we have everything you need to engage with our beloved alma mater in the fall edition of Alumline.

As a proud, Forever Coog, who is so grateful and blessed to give back to UH with my service, I am honored to represent my fellow alumni to ensure you have all the information you need to stay connected and active with UH. Whether it’s volunteering, attending sporting events, hiring University of Houston graduates or making a donation, our alumni are integral to the continued success and growth of our beloved Tier One University.

I, along with the UHAAF Board, and the great team in the UH Alumni Association, are committed to helping strengthen your ties to UH.  We encourage you to reach out to other Coogs you know: talk to a Coog, text a Coog, email a Coog, however, you can — invite your fellow Coogs to engage with the University. We are nearly  278,000 UH alumni strong, but we can be even stronger with an even larger presence with your help. Together, let’s grow the UH Cougar Nation!

As President Khator says, “Keep the fire in the belly,” and let’s own this together – Go Coogs!

True We’ll Ever Be,

Laurie Rutherford (’86, M.B.A. ’91, M.S. ’04)
President, University of Houston Association Foundation Board
