Marking 75 years of continuous publication at the University of Houston, The Daily Cougar and Houstonian Yearbook are UH’s oldest traditions. To recognize this milestone and reconnect with its alumni, the Department of Student Publications is hosting a series of events in October, including a cocktail reception and a campus time capsule.
A reception is planned for 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 15 in the Rockwell Pavilion of the M.D. Anderson Library at the UH Main Campus. All former student staff — editors, reporters, photographers, ad salespeople, literally any student employee — are invited to attend.
On Oct. 22, Student Publications will be accepting items from the campus community to be included in a time capsule to be opened in 25 years, when the newspaper and yearbook turn 100. The Department has also launched a special anniversary Web site at www.uh.edu/sp/75 with staff photographs, history and front pages from the archives, including the complete first edition of The Cougar and the first UH yearbook.
The Department of Student Publications at the University of Houston is home to the University’s oldest traditions: The Cougar newspaper and the Houstonian Yearbook. For more information about the department, visit www.uh.edu/sp. The Daily Cougar publishes online at www.thedailycougar.com and is distributed throughout campus Monday through Friday.
