Cougar First ImpressionsCoogs Helping Coogs Since 1998!

Cool down and find your way the first two days of class with Cougar First Impressions!

2013 CFI artworkOn Monday, August 26, and Tuesday, August 27, look for the red and white Cougar First Impressions (CFI) tents all over campus. UH staff members and others wearing red "Water / Answers / Directions" T-shirts will be at 20 CFI locations from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. to answer your questions and provide directions to where you need to go. You can also get a campus map and goodies like pens, pencils, notepads, and many others.

It will be hot at the beginning of the semester, so CFI volunteers will have a free, cold bottle of water for you. Keep that bottle to fill it from one of the 11 Water Monsters that will be on campus August 26-27, sponsored by UH Administration & Finance. For the 7th year, CFI will also feature the very popular "ice cream tent" where you can get a frozen treat starting at 11 a.m. and until supplies run out each day.

You can find all of the CFI locations and Water Monsters on the UH campus map. Click on the "CFI 2013" box under the "Amenities" tab.

CFI is sponsored by UH Staff Council each Fall and Spring semester and is made possible by generous donations without student fees. For more information, see the CFI home page and schedule. You can also contact the 2013 Co-Chair, Andy Moon, at 832-842-4782 or
