Many students are actively involved in helping their fellow Houstonians through events such as Earth Day, Back to School Fest, and March of Dimes. Learn more about the events UH Community participates in annually below:

Back to School Fest

Back to School Fest ensures that 25,000 area students from kindergarten to fifth grade are prepared to begin school ready to learn on the first day. As in the previous two years, this year’s event offered school supplies, backpacks, clothes, City of Houston information, health screenings, immunizations, and social service resources to families so they could focus on sending healthy, prepared children back to the classroom to learn.

Earth Day

The University of Houston highlighted some of its campus-wide sustainability efforts during the city’s Earth Day celebration Saturday, April 12, at Discovery Green (1500 McKinney St.).

Students and faculty talked about environmental research and projects at the daylong event. Representatives from UH will be in the Sustainability Zone, one of several areas set up to draw attention to environmental awareness.
