Get Involved

Attending a Cougar Cents event is the easiest way to kick-start your Houston Cougar legacy!  Every penny collected at Philanthro-PIG Drop events provide more scholarship opportunities and academic support for current students.  And Cougar Cents will show us how a little can go a long way if we participate each year.

When are these events?
