Happy End-of-the-Semester!


This fall semester seems to have gone by quickly! Students are preparing for finals, selecting classes for the spring semester and gearing up for a much deserved holiday break. We are very proud of our inaugural group of Katy Coogs!

This semester was a milestone for UH as we opened the doors to our beautiful new facility. Thank you for celebrating with us and seeing the connection that higher education has to the success of the region. We pledge to be good neighbors and strong leaders.

We are excited about the coming months that will bring more students into our studios and classrooms. Whose House? Coogs’ House, and YOUR house. I hope you’ll visit us and let us know how we can move forward together.

Enjoy the coming holiday season with your family and friends.

See you in the New Year!
