Transcript 75 Years Much to the disbelief of many UH students, the University was around even before they began attending classes. While it was easy to forget that, the school's 75th anniversary was a difficult thing to ignore during the week-long celebration held by the University administration. "Sometimes it's hard to believe there was no University campus 75 years ago," said UH president Arthur K. Smith. "Where we are standing right now was in fact a swampy tract of land populated with oaks, pines, and other native trees and shrubs." The celebration, called "UH Through the Decades", showcased photo essays of the major events which have affected UH throughout its history. The visitors to the event enjoyed the chance to learn some of the history that they might never have discovered otherwise. To make certain that the students took notice of this huge event, decorations were placed in the UC, around the Cullen Fountain, and in other popular meeting places. Many groups arranged programs to contribute to the celebration. Such organizations included the Good News Gospel Choir, who sang at the event, and the UH Jazz Orchestra, who performed. Students crowded the Cullen Family Plaza in their eagerness to take part in the festivities: the music, the fun, and the free food. Lines wrapped around corners as people waited patiently to sample some of the huge amount of free Tex-Mex. "This event showed the spirit of UH," said freshman mechanical technology major Hiu Li.
