Houston, Jan. 27, 2017 — University of Houston faculty and staff are able to enjoy the $5 Cougar Red Friday discount in the two campus dining halls all semester long.

The program started five years ago and has continued every semester since. It allows faculty and staff to pay only $5 plus tax for the all-you-care-to-eat lunch on Fridays at both the Fresh Food Company in Moody Towers and Cougar Woods Dining Hall.

To get the discount, guests need to wear an article of clothing that is red, such as a shirt, pants, vest, scarf or tie. They also need to present their Cougar Card ID.
