Transcript Coming of age isn't something that happens overnight. You don't just wake up one morning, refreshed and respected. It takes years of effort, learning to improve yourself in ways both small and large in order to become truly grown — matured both inside and out. At the University of Houston, we have come of age physically — we have an average age of 26, well into the adult years. We are here, however, to improve. Recognizing the need for self improvement is an important step, doing something about it was a major advance. It wasn't always easy. Facing the daily commute, dealing with day care and work, and still trying to maintain a decent GPA proved to be a consuming task. Daily, we came of age, willing to take the harder path to a more difficult life. Jesse Jackson spoke to students on his presidential campaign rally during the fall semester. Jackson eventually bowed out of the race to Michael Dukakis. Photo by Michael Williams. 4 University of Houston The Food Fair provided a sampling grounds for anyone interested in trying new things. Although most meals provided a never-to-be-repeated foray into culinary adventure, everyone still enjoyed trying to remember exactly what it was he ate. Photo by Hugh Tom.

That's exactly what many X second- year architecture students did when faced with their first project in the fall. This enterprising sophomore went so far as to pitch a tent and erect "trees" as he sacrificed his free time. Photo by Paul Nicosia. An unusual landmark on Scott Street fell in the name of progress, as renovations were made upon University lands around campus. It was replaced by a Burger King. Photo by Lara Schultz. Opening 5
