Why Stay Involved?

You Boost UH’s Profile

Several university ranking organizations factor alumni involvement into their formulas. As a member, you help UH rise in national rankings, which also makes your degree more valuable.

You Honor Fellow Alumni

Alumni accomplishments reflect brightly on the University. UHAA is dedicated to recognizing outstanding individuals through our awards program, our alumni magazine and our up-to-date, redesigned website.

You Make Things Happen In Austin

That’s right; UH grads make over 35 percent of the current Texas Legislature in Austin. With that kind of backing, there is no telling what UH alumni can do when they harness the momentum of our great University. Tier One, growing the student body, increased funding and a rightful seat at the table are all part of the equation with your support as an active member.

You Jump-Start Your Career

Through our partnership with the University’s Career Center, UHAA provides alumni with personalized career assistance. Whether you have recently graduated or have graduated in years past, an Alumni Counselor can provide career coaching for you. Subscribe to Alumni Career Services HERE.

You Support Student Success

Involved alumni remember the challenges and triumphs of their student years, and they are ready to give to the next generation. From student send-offs to Senior 27. The alumni association’s student programs prepare our students to be citizens of the world. To help top-quality students attend UH, the association’s Scholarship Program also provides $180,000 in scholarships each year to deserving incoming and current students.

Each year, UHAA sponsors the networking activities that bring you back to campus to reconnect with faculty and fellow cougars: Homecoming, poker tournaments, reunions, tailgates, golf tournaments and more!

You Foster University Pride

A strong UHAA is proof the UH is more than just four years of classes: it is the beginning of a lifetime of pride and passion. Being an involved member shows your belief in our outstanding University. Start with proudly displaying the UH flag, at your business. Learn more about our “Crank it up Coogs,” program, HERE.
