Are you the pride?
Prove it. UH Marketing & Communication's official student organization, UH Pride Ambassadors will be hosting "T-shirt trade-up" events this spring '11 semester. Students, faculty, staff and members of the community are encouraged to trade old T-shirts representing other colleges or universities for a new University of Houston T-shirt. All other schools' shirts will be donated to serve the community.
