UH Homecoming Week

This week is Homecoming at the University of Houston! Homecoming at the University of Houston is a tradition dating back to 1946.  This week we celebrate the University of Houston, unite students and organizations, and showcase Cougar pride and spirit during one of the oldest traditions on campus.

Each day there will be different events for students, alumni, and the UH Community.  The week kicks off with a pep rally and the announcement of the Homecoming Court.  Students have the opportunity to participate in Spirit Day, a block party, Coog-lympics, and mum making, along with many other activities. Homecoming Fiesta on Friday includes delicious Texas BBQ, fireworks, and a concert featuring Lupe Fiasco and Wale. On Saturday we will cheer on the undefeated Cougars, currently 8-0, as they take on the Cincinnati Bearcats.  For more information regarding all the Homecoming events, please visit here.

To show our Cougar pride, the Office of Admissions teamed up with the Student Services Office to participate in the Cougar Spirit Bell Challenge.  This is an annual competition to award the office that shows the most Cougar spirit by decorating their offices during Homecoming Week.  This year’s theme is “Varsity Red” and we bleed red!  Below are a few pictures of the office suite.  The winners will be announced this Friday, wish us luck!
