Alumni Class Reunions
Whether formal or informal and on- or off-campus, UHCOP class reunions offer the opportunity to reconnect with classmates, share personal and professional achievements, trade "war stories," relive cherished memories and make new ones.
Each year on the 50th anniversary of their graduation from UH College of Pharmacy, alumni are invited back to campus to be recognized as a "Golden Cougar" while welcoming the next generation of professional pharmacists and researchers during the college's annual Commencement ceremony.
For more information, visit the Golden Cougars page.
The Class of 1971's 40th Reunion, organized by Sunny Chin, was held at the UH Alumni Center on May 21, 2011.
Pictured at right are 1971 alumni (back row) Robby Timberlake, Ray F. Daves, John Gee, Leonard W. Marcella, Jay Livingston, Dr. Toby Garcia and Sunny Chin; and (front row) Robert Hart, Don Denton, Chery White Johnigan, Nancy Chapman and C.R. Trevino.
Are you interested in hosting or organizing an alumni reunion, but need help spreading the word? The College of Pharmacy can assist alumni in contacting former classmates, as well as checking the availability of space at the UH Hilton Hotel or UH Alumni Center for reunions held on campus.
Regardless of location, the college welcomes the submission of reunion announcements as well as photos and reports after the event to share with everyone in the University of Houston and College of Pharmacy family.
