I hope you and your family are getting back into your routine and getting ready for a great 2018!

Each time we have an opportunity to turn the calendar to a new year. If you’re like me, you take the time to reflect for a moment on the year that just was.

I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all of you, for all you’ve done to take UHAA to the next level in 2017. It’s with this solid foundation of leadership, that I’m confident that this is going to be our best year yet!

Your Alumni Association is gearing up for 2018 to be a landmark year. We have many new things that we are proud to announce, including our 2018 Alumni Awards honorees, the UHAA app, and how to become a Life Member.

As our volunteer army gets ready to embark on a series of events that are sure to knock your socks off, I hope you’ll take the time to navigate www.houstonalumni.com, and find something that matches your interests.

So if you are on the bandwagon, welcome back.  If you aren’t – now’s the time. I can proudly say, there has NEVER been a better time to be a Cougar, and now is the time to find your niche and join us for the ride!

Have a great 2018, and Go Coogs!


True we’ll ever be,
