Celebrating Pharmacy's Golden Cougars

Several years ago, UH College of Pharmacy introduced a new tradition to the annual Commencement Ceremony: welcoming back its "Golden Cougar" alumni to celebrate the 50th anniversary of their graduation from the college.

Calling Class of 1970 Alumni

The 2020 Golden Cougars – representing the college's Class of 1970 – are invited to participate in the UHCOP Class of 2020 Commencement on Thursday, May 7, 2020, at Cullen Performance Hall.

In addition, Golden Cougars have an open invitation to join us and members of the graduating class for the Graduation Awards Reception on Wednesday, May 6.
