Hello Cougars!

Here we are in the dog days of summer, but that doesn’t mean that the planning for alumni events, ways for you to volunteer, and opportunities to participate at your alma mater hasn’t diminished at all. As a matter fact, our website at www.houstonalumni.com is loaded with opportunities for you to participate in the hot days of July and August. I also encourage you to take a look at our calendar page as you will see we have information leading up to football season so make your reservations for some of our fun away game trips to places like Lubbock, Annapolis, Dallas and Memphis.

Our team is working feverishly on several new initiatives that I’ll hopefully be able to tell you about in August, but some very exciting things are on the horizon for the 2018-19 academic year.

As always, you should be receiving an email soon that contains your alumni card, and I encourage you to go to the App Store and download the UHAA app onto your phone, as it will contain your alumni card going forward. You will need your alumni card to gain entry into our spectacular Party on the Plaza at every home football game, so act early and download it now.

With that, I will wish you nothing but the best for a restful and relaxing summer with some great friends and family at your side. I hope you will send us your photos from around the world as you travel, or some great shots of you and your beautiful family out by your pool enjoying these hot days! As a Cougar family, we should always stay connected! Use the class notes link on our website to send us those photos and your updated information. Have a great summer!

True we’ll ever be!
