Transcript fU6in£ &*i £fte %Ln6&< e£r change jk fter going to the University of i\ Houston for four years, I have ^^P come to feel as much a part of the ^W \ campus as the squirrels that roam it throughout the year. Even in those few four years, as I went from being an undergraduate to graduate student, many changes have swept through our university: A president died, another one came and went, parking lots were stolen from students in order to build great new buildings, professors retired, Coke machines were outlawed, and even new computers managed to find their way to the Communications Building. B u t where is UH headed in the future? Which road will the university that has produced three of our championship Houston Rockets take? This yearbook has taken a glimpse into the future. Professors and deans spoke of new paths for the university. Here is what my crystal ball sees for the future of UH: The university has suffered, mostly due to the apathy of students, faculty and staff. So what if most of us commute to and from campus? Is that any reason for not showing Cougar pride? I believe that as students spend more time at UH they begin to feel a kind of union between themselves and the campus. UH is slowly growing with respect. In a few years, I seen no reason why UH should not fit into the famed A&M and UT category. Inevitably, t h e technological advances that we are only recently able to see, will hit UH like a storm. Anyone can get to the UH home page and see what our university has to offer. In the near future, computers and computer technology will easily allow students to go through the admission and registration processes without having to go through tedious paperwork. Another technological advancement we already see is the availability of taking classes from home. How many other universities allow their students to sit in on a lecture from the comfort of their own home? But will these technological advances lead to an empty campus? I venture to say, not very likely. As it was 20 years ago, as it is today, and as it will be 20 years from now, students will always love the relaxation that magically dwells on UH. Nothing could replace the calmness of studying with the sounds of the rushing waters of the E. Cullen fountain, or the soothing relaxation of lying on the grass at the Satellite hill with dozens of squirrels running around looking for kind students who are willing to share their lunch. So many of us have spent that extra semester or year, even though we didn't need to, just for the sake of escaping reality and work, and expanding the comfort that the UH campus so freely gives away. As Houston grows, so will UH. Students will realize what an asset the University of Houston-Houston's University- -truly is. After all, why is the average age of a UH student not 19 or 20, but late 20s? The answer is obvious: Students in their late 20s have had the "life" experience to know the importance of a UH education. Our creative writing, law school and graduate school of communication programs are ranked at the top. UH has hidden assets and hidden secrets that only those who are a part of its campus can truly discover. UH is on the verge of a breakthrough. Isn't it nice to know that in some ways we are a part of that future . . . a part of UH's winds of change. -Ivana Segvic C . Academics Editor 1 m 21E
