Keep Houston Red: Red Friday Program

Bookmark and Share 

Cougar Red Friday is part of our ongoing Keep Houston Red initiative at the University of Houston. We encourage our campus community and those all around the city of Houston to wear Red on Fridays and show support for Houston's top-tier University. Here at UH, wearing Red on Friday is more than just a tradition; it is who we are. We wear Red to show our pride and passion for the University. It is our visual identity. The color unites us to live and to celebrate together, and behold our individual achievements as a singular legacy of pride.
