Transcript 1945 The Veterans' Club poses for a group photo. After WWII, there was a large influx of veterans who were returning to pick up their education where they left off. 1969 Members of the Baptist Student Union serenade attendees of their weekly luncheon. This luncheon was a tradition that lasted many years after its inception. uf^f College life was more than just hard classes, dweeby professors and having no money. Most students felt the need to be a part of some sort of group on campus. Nearly everyone felt the need to mingle with people who shared a similar heritage, creed, interest or hobby. Since the founding of the school, many different organizations were available for students to find others like them. Some of these organizations had been around since 1927, while others were fairly new. Many of the older organizations on campus, such as the UH Cougar Marching Band, the Frontiersmen, and the Student Government Association (formerly the Students Association) had longstanding traditions of excellence in service to the UH community and helped to inspire and educate their members. Other organizations, such as the Pep Club died out, only later to be replaced by organizations like the "Bleacher Creatures." As the campus grew and diversified, other groups opened chapters on the UH. Organizations like the Black Student Union, the Muslim Student Organization and the Hispanic Media Association helped the University to grow and prosper with as diverse a student body as could be found at any school in the country. People who wanted to have fun with people of similar faith had various options on campus, such as the Baptist Student Ministry. Other groups formed around common interests, such as the Fencing Club, the Cougar Bowling Club, and Clayworks. By the turn of the century, more than 120 student organizations were registered with the University, and it was easy for all students on campus to find a group of people that shared similar inclinations. The vibrant and diverse organizations were among the most visible ways in which the University of Houston could show off the talent and scholastic aptitude of its students. Matthew E.
