Cougar First Impressions

Tuesday, August 24, 2021

12:00 am - 12:00 am

Cougar First Impressions (CFI) is an annual “Welcome to UH” experience sponsored by Staff Council since 1998, and is held the first two days of each Fall semester in order to fulfill our mission of providing new and returning students with resources and quality customer service.

This year’s CFI theme is “Back like we never left! Resilient!”

Our plan is to hold a virtual and in-person CFI event this fall to provide students with a safe and gradual transition to campus.

CFI’s virtual event will connect students to resources available on campus, UH at Sugar Land, and UH at Katy with live breakout rooms in Microsoft Teams addressing key areas students most inquire about during their first week on campus.

Should COVID-19 conditions allow, CFI will have tents in key locations across the UH, UH at Sugar Land, and UH at Katy campuses. These interactions will follow the university’s COVID-19 protocols to ensure Coogs a safe welcome to campus. Updates regarding CFI will continue to be posted here.

This Fall, CFI will take place from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday, August 23, 2021, and Tuesday, August 24, 2021.

CFI continues to bridge the gap among campuses by uniting volunteer staff and faculty in connecting Coogs.
