Cougar First Impressions (CFI) is sponsored by UH Staff Council and offers students a chance to receive campus maps, directions to class, and bottled water from UH staff members stationed across campus during the first two days of the Fall semester. CFI has been made possible by generous contributions without utilizing any student fees since 1998.
