Transcript Student Life Students clamor into the 150 seats of the classroom which will soon reverberate with chemistry formulas. Near the back of the class sits a disheveled group who have obviously been up too late. They stretch, yawn and try to decipher the notes borrowed from a fellow classmate covering the last class they missed. Near the front of the room sit immaculately dressed and groomed commuters. Anxiously they check their watches hoping to make it to their jobs on time, notebooks open, pen in one hand, highlighter in the other. In the Satellite, sorority sisters plan for Friday night, while one table over an exhausted graduate student crams for an upcoming exam. One might wonder how all these groups got along. And the answer — they did not. But, they were all remarkable. They represented every spectrum and aspect of the "outside world." Over 35,000 students jammed together in less than five city blocks made up the average 28-year-old student. Each undoubtedly much preferred sleep to class just as a child chooses the sandbox over the bathtub. But all this diversity was banded together under the Cougar name. It was the same then as it is now. Pride ran through students' veins as red as the University of Houston banner. It came from the pulsating rhythm of the bands on Richmond. It poured from the fountains outside of E. Cullen. It was the tie that bound students with different tastes in music and politics, friendships and clothes into one community - an intangible force simply called Cougar Pride.
