February is the month of the Volunteer!
For some reason, even though the semester just started for the Spring 2020 students at UH, it seems like February is in the middle of it all!
Sure it feels like NCAA basketball season and our Cougar’s men’s team is ranked in the TOP 20 right now, but we are on the precipice so much more. Right around the corner is Mardi Gras in Galveston (yes, we will have our float) and then the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo Parade (yes, again…) will kick off a month of revelry at NRG Park with the Cougar Cookers in the Championship BBQ, the kickoff of shows on March 3 and then UH Night at the Rodeo on March 12, followed by Frontier Fiesta on campus and spring break.
Snap your fingers and February will be gone… just like that. So I hope you find a way that fits your fancy to come back and engage with your alma mater. Look at the incredible list of events our various alumni associations have put together this month, a little bit of everything.
The spirit of volunteerism really reigns in Houston in February with everything that goes on so I am sure I will see you out and about. And if it’s Friday, I sure hope you are wearing red when we see each other.
Be well and Go Coogs!
True We’ll Ever Be,
