Transcript Senior Dedication Included among the graduating class of 1945 are many students who have the distinction of being the first to have completed four years study on this campus, and therefore are the initial graduates of the University of Houston as it is today. The University moved into its present home in the fall of 1039. and with it came a group of freshmen. It would he quite difficult for the freshmen of 1943 to picture the scene that presented itself to those freshmen of '39. The beautiful landscaping of today was lacking, there being no grass or any other green, and the picturesque reflection pool which now serenely lies at I lie campus' center was nonexistent. The Cullen and Science Buildings stood immaculate in their undeveloped surroundings, bit! other structures were yel to be built. And so, with the help of these students who began campus lib- on the present University site . . . who organized clubs and associations . . . who aided in making the Frontier Fiestas successful two years in a row . . . who in their junior year participated in the first presentation ol the Varsity Varieties, which was staged at the Metropolitan Theatre . . . who witnessed the development of the campus landscape, the construction ol the reflection pool, and the births of the Recreation and Industrial Buildings . . . yes, with the help of these first students, the University has been able to grow to its present height. And this past year, those freshmen of yesterday became seniors . . . college seniors in a war-conscious world. 1 hey headed the student government, and took the lead in social events, namely the second of the popular Varsity Varieties which was staged at the Music Hall, December 10, 1942, and the Junior-Senior Prom which was held April 9, 1943, at the Houston Club. The prom was held jointly for the first time because of war conditions. But the present war changed more things than the prom for this senior class. Beginning in 1942, many of its members joined military reserve corps. Some had to leave before graduation time . . . others will leave in the near future . . . and a few have already given their lives or have been lost in action. This World War 11 has probably changed many previously planned futures of the members of this class, which is the second one to graduate during war time. But it is certain that whatever the future holds for them, with the precedent that this class has established, scholastically as well as in extra-curricular activities, success will be standing by. Good luck, graduating seniors of 19431
