Band members felt a deep sense of pride in their contribution to UH. "You can leave here when you graduated, knowing that you were a part of something big, something that mattered to other students;' said Glass. -Ashley Grubbs fjj Organizations GETTING IN SHAPE The Cougar Band formed the shape of "UH" on the football field during a halftime show.
