Welcome back to campus life, Coogs
All good things must come to an end — including winter break. And although waking up for 8 a.m. classes or hunting for a parking spot for 30 minutes every day may seem torturous after a leisure-filled winter break, it is safe to assume that we are all excited to be back on campus.
That’s because we have a lot to be excited about. We are the second-most diverse university in the nation, a Carnegie-designated Tier One research institution, and are now home to one of the nation’s top college football teams — a team that has drawn much national attention to our University.
However, our recent accolades are just the beginning. UH will continue to rise in prominence as long as it is full of students, faculty and staff who care intimately about the direction of their campus and are proud to call themselves cougars.
Our mission at The Daily Cougar is to provide information to UH students, faculty and staff about this great institution we all call home. Our reporters, photographers and editors will work hard this semester to fulfill that mission.
Cougars can stay up to date on campus news by picking up our print edition on campus or by stopping by thedailycougar.com. On our website you will find additional stories, photo galleries and videos. Our Facebook and Twitter pages are other ways to keep campus news in the palm of your hand while you’re on the go.
Students who wish to contribute to The Daily Cougar should fill out our online application at www.thedailycougar.com/apply. We are always looking for talented new writers, photographers, copy editors and cartoonists.
We hope that the new year brings you happiness and whether this semester is your first or your last, we wish you only the best in the coming months.
