Dear UH Family,

We are concluding another tremendous semester at the University of Houston … and a busy one too.

Now, we prepare for the winter break, but not before we honor our Fall 2022 graduates this weekend!

Commencement is really a reflection of why we’re here at UH. It’s a moment when we truly can see the results of our hard work. It also allows all of us experience the energy of the entire institution. Nothing quite compares with the pomp and circumstance of a UH graduation ceremony … and believe me, I’ve attended quite a few.

To those graduates attending commencement exercises this weekend, congratulations! And to the rest of the UH family, thank you for supporting our students as they worked diligently to reach their respective Cougar Milestones.
