Student Media at the University of Houston belongs to everyone in the Houston community, student body, alumni, faculty, and staff. That is why UH publishes reports, studies, and accounts of the events, accomplishments and contributions that capture what it means to have Cougar Pride.
COOG Radio is a non-profit radio station operated and staffed by students from the University of Houston. Co-founders Conner Clifton, Markley Rogers, and Matt Womack came up with the idea two years ago, but it wasn't until the fall of 2011 that the idea finally came to fruition. COOG Radio not only provides a creative outlet for fellow students to express themselves over the air but also introduces them to the world of broadcasting.
The Daily Cougar is published Monday through Friday during the fall and spring semesters and once a week during the summer. In addition to the print edition, the paper publishes online at thedailycougar.com. The paper is distributed to more than 60 high-traffic locations on campus by 9 a.m. each morning. It is printed by UH Printing and Postal Services. The newspaper is mostly self-sustaining, drawing most of its budget from advertising revenue.
Transitions magazine is published in the summer and direct-mailed to freshmen and transfer students enrolling for the first time in the fall, this magazine serves as an essential guide to the University.
Student Video Network (SVN) provides UH students the unique opportunity to develop movies, television shows, commercials, and special features for the small screen, experiencing the entire process from inception to air. SVN may be viewed from anywhere on the UH closed-circuit cable network (on campus) on channel 6.
