Transcript ■Ulld Mt CUlti students play sports on campus! t Texas A&M University in College Station, it was considered a major sin to walk on the grass. But at UH, many students frequently found great pleasure in getting use out of our many grassy fields, and it was not thought to be disrespectful. Leaving class on a sunny day to find a game of football going on next to the Satellite, or walking out to the parking lot and discovering an impromptu game of frisbee was not uncommon. Perhaps some teachers thought the students' time was better spent studying, but everyone knew the saying, "All work and no play makes Joe a dull Cougar." "A little exercise never hurts," said freshman Cary Jackson of his skateboarding. "Every time I come out here [to the Satellite] I wish I didn't have to go to Chem and I could sit here and watch the guys play football," said sophomore Amy Smith. Leisure sports were definitely something Cougars thought about. Several organizations had annual sporting events, like foot or bike races. Many students rode their bikes to school from home or from a dorm. Bicycles in general were highly esteemed as a viable form of transportation and exercize. One student even ventured to get out his guitar and play late in the afternoon after classes. As junior Chuck Howard put it, "Throwing the football around is a good way to see guys I don't have classes with."- Angela Snyder.
