Transcript 1962-63 ... a punched IBM registration card ... a football game ... a professor who inspires learning ... a school dance ... a bridge game in Cougar Den . . . mid-semester grades ... a bonfire ... a campus heavy with fog at night . . . fraternity parties . . . evenings in the library ... a rodeo . . . part-time jobs . . . married students with children . . . plans for the future . . . weddings . . . finally, tassels tacked on a mortar board. All of this is the University of Houston. But UH is so much more. It is an intangible spirit characterized this year by an anticipation, an eagerness, felt throughout the campus. For UH is in a state of transition. 1962-63 marks the last year as a private institution. And with the words STATE ASSISTANCE come the reason for this antici- pation. Since 1934, UH has grown large and strong. Now this dynamic institution is involved in a headlong rush to greatness. With UH on the verge of becoming a state university, exciting plans for changes are being put into effect. New buildings are being planned and built. New dorms ^re under construction. The Reliqious Center is in final plans, as is the Student Union. A new athletic building is already com- pleted. Parking lots are being re-paved. Organizations are planning a bigger future. Enrollment jumped fourteen percent, with a greater increase expected with lower tuition. The anticipation is heightened by a changing city. NASA, a new network of freeways, leaps in population, the completion of the Humble Building—all of these promise new support and continued growth of the University of Houston. The 1963 HOUSTONIAN has tried to capture this anticipation, this planning, and to provide a record of the last year under private control. To capture this spirit is to capture the moods of UH—moods of quietness, of expectancy, of festivity, of stimulation. In the many phases, many elements of UH, we have tried to capture the spirit of ihe UNIVERSITY OF HOUSTON. ■«■*■
