Welcome Week Events Will Start Semester With a Bang

By: Mary Ann Cozza

To kick the school year off right, UHD is again hosting Welcome Week Monday, Aug. 22, and Tuesday, Aug. 23, for all students. This event is designed to promote goodwill and pride within the school and to welcome all students to UHD for the new semester.

A DJ and the HOT 95.7 radio street team will be on hand to keep the students' energy up while they peruse vendors including Freebirds World Burrito, Vitamin Water, Spaghetti Warehouse, REV Eco-Shuttle and many more! UHD's Offices of Student Activities and Admissions will also be passing out UHD promotional items but ask that these things go to students only.

UHD Sports & Fitness will host Sports on the Deck from Aug. 22 to 24 on the North Deck in conjunction with Welcome Week. There will be games, food, drinks, T-shirts and more available for all UHD students. Vendors include the Houston Aeros, Dynamo and Texans, General Mills, My Fit Foods and Games 2 U, a mobile entertainment company.

The W.I. Dykes Library is also getting in on the action with several events running through Sept.1 including informational sessions, a game day and movie days. Students can learn how to earn an A+ on a paper and how to stay safe on the internet, or they can watch "Avatar" or "The Princess Bride" while munching on popcorn.
