Transcript 1970 A student joins in a large on-campus protest. During this tumultuous time in history, this protest could have been about anything from the environment to drug laws to the war. Student Life 1950 Two students pause in their walking to look up at the inscription on the Ezekiel Cullen building. This building has been an integral part of Cougar lives for decades. 1985 A student prepares food for an on- campus event. Food has been a prominent fixture at every major campus event since the University's founding. 1953 Mrs. Marianna Uray pauses from her work as a campus operator. Even back in the 50's, students earned extra money by getting part time jobs on campus. Student Life in I7T© jjTJoT Since the University of Houston was founded in 1927, some aspects of what students do on campus have changed, while others have not. The university grew steadily and quietly, without attracting too much attention for the first few years. The 1950's saw UH's campus community thrust into the national spotlight when Life Magazine featured our schools Frontier Fiesta as "the greatest college show on earth." The sixties and seventies were just as turbulent at the University of Houston as they were at most other colleges throughout the nation, as drug use became commonplace and antiwar demonstrations protested our nations involvement in Vietnam. Students not interested in that were finding new places to spend their free time on campus, as the University Center and University Center Satellite provided entertainment and enrichment options never before available on campus. Things calmed down during the eighties and nineties, as UH tried to fight its "Cougar High" reputation. The percentage of students living on campus dropped significantly as more and more students found commuting from Houston and the surrounding suburbs more convenient, and often cheaper, than living in the dorms. As the new millennium dawned, Cougars found campus life to be just as exciting as ever, with a newly refurbished University Center, a rebuilt UC Satellite, and a brand new, state of the art Campus Recreation Center being built. UH Students knew as well as anyone how to get the most out of college life. Matthew E. Caster Dtuoent Life :A-m ;M::\/ * ostalgia
