Welcome Week 2017

The University of Houston-Downtown rolled out the "blue" carpet for students during "Welcome Week."

Each year, UHD kicks off the fall semester with a week of events aimed at helping students get back into the swing of things. This year's events included an eclipse watch party on the South Deck, laser tag, a sundae social with new Dean of Students Samuel Santos, Sports and Fitness demonstrations and more. See the slideshow above for some of the highlights of "Welcome Week."
