Events and Programs


The University of Houston Hispanic Alumni Association is excited to announce the return of its Champions League Tournament – a daylong soccer event bringing together the Houston community in a friendly competition to raise money for scholarships. Help give back to the community and register as a team or as a sponsor! #GoCoogs

Thanks to everyone who supported the University of Houston Hispanic Alumni Association as we supported our UH Cougar Baseball team they took on Wichita State on April 21st. The fun began at our BBQ fundraiser in which proceeds will benefit our scholarship fund.

UHHAA was excited to hold their first fashion show this Feburary. It was a wonderful afternoon filled with music, creativity and color bringing together the Houston community to raise money for scholarships. Thanks so much to all of our sponsors and supporters.


Thanks also to Chacon Photography for all of our photographs.
