Transcript To: UH STUDENTS FROM: R. L. VAN HORN RE: STATE OF AFFAIRS You are attending the University of Houston during one of its most exciting periods. In all verifiable measures the University of Houston today is better than ever before, whet her you look at the amount of research conducted, the external funds awarded and donated, the scope and quality of undergraduate and graduate academic programs, or the recognition the University is receiving in the city, state and nation. You are the best students ever at the University of Houston. Last fall's freshman class had the highest SAT scores in our 60-year history, significantly higher than the state and national average, placing us among the top three Texas public universities. For the past two years we have enrolled more National and University Merit Scholars than ever before and ranked 26th among the nation's 3,000 colleges. You will be better educated upon graduation than any previous class. You are being taught by some of the finest faculty in the nation, whether you are studying creative writing or physics, business or education. You also will be among the first to graduate under the full university core curriculum. You, and every student who has enrolled at UH since 1983, have received an outstanding liberal arts and sciences educational base along with your specialized course work. We believe that this education better prepares you for both a career today and the unpredictable challenges of tomorrow. You also play an increasingly important role in the governance of the university. The resolution of this spring's deliberations on student service fees occurred through the active participation of your elected student leaders. Their willingness to work diligently to explain the issues and generate support for the University Center fee referendum resulted in its passage by a two to one margin. I urge you to take advantage of the opportunities available for you at the University of Houston. Become involved in student government and student activities. Seek out professional internships in Houston's innumerable corporations and agencies. And above all else, take advantage of our outstanding faculty through contact inside and outside the classroom. The faculty members represent the life-long dedication to excellence in their work that leads to success in all fields. Sincerely, Richard L. Van Horn President Presidential Address 69
