Transcript Letting go Engineering students can put aside their studying long enough to have some fun If you've ever spent thirty hours a week doing homework for an entire semester... if you've had Saturday exams every week for a month... if you've ever asked a professor to give his lecture in English instead of Greek, you might be an engineer. Engineering in its many forms, including mechanical, civil, electrical and chemical, was among the most challenging majors college students pursued. The homework was often long and tedious, the lectures confusing, and the tests unbearable. But UH engineers knew what steps needed to be taken to ensure their academic excellence did not come at the expense of relaxing, unwinding, and having a bit of fun. At random intervals between endless hours of study ing in "the Pit," a lounge area located in the Cullen College of Engineering Building, engineering students would take a break from studying to try and remember what life was like before Thermodynamics, Transport Phenomena, and Solid Mechanics. The Engineering department also hosted various events throughout the year to help engineers relieve some stress. These events included the infamous BOS (beginning of semester) and EOS (end of semester) parties, not to mention a Chili Cook-off in mid-March. After all, even engineering majors had to unwind occasionally. -Matthew E. Caster I can't take it anymore! Senior mechanical engineering major Joe Rodriguez talks to junior mechanical engineering majors Carolina Rodriguez and Kristen Moorman, while Moorman lays down for a break in "the Pit."

The biology and chemistry programs at UH focused on preparing the students for problems they would face in their chosen fields. From the meticulous human anatomy classes for future doctors to loathed organic chemistry classes for future chemists and chemical engineers, UH sciences >nstantly challenged eir students' minds (and patience). Not all classes in chemistry and biology were hated and feared, though; students often enjoyed the rigorous challenges offered by the departments. "Biology is a tough subject to learn, but it's worth it," said junior biology major Jessica French. -Richard Whitrock ^o explosions!
