Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year! College will be some of the best years of your life and I am glad you chose the Tier One University of Houston as your home. I hope you graduate with many fond memories of your time here!
In addition to succeeding in your classes, I strongly encourage you to get involved on campus. Whether it be in a fraternity or sorority, intramural sports, or one of our 500+ student organizations, involvement in campus life will be key to your success not only here at UH but in the workforce as well. Make the most of your experience by attending sporting events, Homecoming, Frontier Fiesta, plays, and concerts. Conduct research and give back to the community; but most importantly, network! UH is the second most ethnically diverse university in the nation and building a strong personal and professional network is crucial to your long term success.
I am confident that you will enjoy your time at UH and will graduate ready to take on the challenges and opportunities of our global and competitive world. Please remember that the Student Government Association (SGA) is here to serve YOU! We represent your voice and advocate on your behalf to the administration and elected officials at the local, state, and national level. If you ever need anything please do not hesitate to contact us. Let's make this a year to remember and one for the history books! Go Coogs!
With Cougar Pride,
Cedric K. Bandoh
Student Body President
