NEW DINING FACILITY TO BE NAMED COUGAR WOODS DINING HALL



Itís official. By popular vote, the new dining hall on the corner of Wheeler and Cullen will be named Cougar Woods Dining Hall.

Students, faculty, staff and friends of the University of Houston voted Aug. 27-31 for their favorite of three finalist names. Cougar Woods, The Roar and West End were the top three choices from the hundreds of names submitted by the UH community during the Spring 2012 semester.

The votes were tallied from both Facebook and Survey Monkey, and Cougar Woods held a strong lead with 49 percent. Beth Owens Woods submitted the winning name idea. She will receive a bicycle and a plaque commemorating her name choice in the new dining hall as a reward.

The new facility will open Monday, Oct. 1 at 7 a.m.
