University beginnings
The junior college became eligible to become a four-year institution in October 1933 when Governor Miriam A. Ferguson signed House Bill 194 into law. On April 30, 1934, HISD’s Board of Education adopted a resolution to make the school a four-year institution, and Houston Junior College became the University of Houston.[11]

History
Founding

The University of Houston administrative offices at San Jacinto High School in 1934 The University of Houston began as Houston Junior College (HJC). On March 7, 1927, trustees of the Houston Independent School District Board of Education unanimously passed a resolution that authorized the founding and operating of a junior college. The junior college was operated and controlled by the Houston Independent School District (HISD).[8][9] Originally HJC was located in San Jacinto High School and offered only night courses.[10] Its first session began March 7, 1927, with an enrollment of 232 students and 12 faculty.[8] This session was primarily held to educate the future teachers of the junior college, and no freshmen were allowed to enroll. A more accurate date for the official opening of HJC is September 19, 1927, when enrollment was opened to all persons having completed the necessary educational requirements.[11] The first president of HJC was Edison Ellsworth Oberholtzer, who was the dominant force in establishing the junior college.[8][12]

The University of Houston campus in 1940 at its present location UH’s first session as a four-year institution began June 4, 1934, at San Jacinto High School with an enrollment of 682. In 1934, the first campus of the University of Houston was established at the Second Baptist Church at Milam and McGowen. The next fall, the campus was moved to the South Main Baptist Church, on Main between Richmond and Eagle, where it stayed for the next five years.[11] In 1936, philanthropists Julius Settegast and Ben Taub donated 110 acres (0.45 km2) to the university for use as a permanent location.[13] Two years later, Hugh Roy Cullen donated $335,000 for the first building to be built at the location. The Roy Gustav Cullen Memorial Building, was dedicated on June 4, 1939, and classes began the next day. The first full semester of classes began officially on Wednesday, September 20, 1939.[11] The next step was the creation of the University of Houston as an institution separate from HISD. On July 26, 1943, the Board of Education adopted a resolution establishing an Advisory Board of the University of Houston consisting of 15 members. On March 12, 1945, Senate Bill 207 was signed into law, removing the control of the University of Houston from HISD and placing

The A.D. Bruce Religion Center was named after the former President of UH of Houston, led by school president A.D. Bruce,[15] and forces from state universities geared to block the change, Senate Bill 2 was passed on May 23, 1961, enabling the university to enter the state system in 1963.[8] In 1977, the University of Houston System was established, with the University of Houston named as the flagship institution of the system.[1] The University of Houston appended its official name to "University of Houston–University Park" in the fall semester of 1983.[16] This name change was an effort by the University of Houston System to give its flagship institution a distinctive name that would eliminate confusion with the other three UHS universities. While these three universities (UH–Clear Lake, UH–Downtown, and UH–Victoria) share the root name "University of Houston," they are essentially autonomous institutions, and each has its own president. By the end of 1987, the flagship institution reverted back to its original name of "University of Houston" after much controversy and lack of reception from the Houston community.[16]

A preliminary drawing of the Roy G. Cullen Memorial building by its architect in 1938 it into the hands of 15 HISD-approved regents.[11] In 1945, the university, which had grown too large and complex for the Houston school board to administer, became a private school. In March 1947, the regents authorized creation of a law school at the University referred to as Bates College of Law—later renamed to University of Houston Law Center. In 1949, a gift of $1.5 million from the M. D. Anderson Foundation for erection of a library building for UH. By 1950, the educational plant at UH consisted of 12 permanent buildings. Enrollment was more than 14,000 with a full-time faculty of more than 300.[8] By 1951, with more than 13,500 students, UH was the second-largest university in the state of Texas, and was the fastest growing university in the United States.[14]

Merger of UH and UH System administrations
In 1997, the UH System and the University of Houston administrations merged. That same year, Arthur K. Smith became the first person to hold both the UH System chancellorship and University of Houston presidency simultaneously. Smith was responsible for overseeing the successful merger of the UH System and UH administrations, the launching of the "Learning. Leading." image campaign, the planning and construction of major buildings

State university
In 1953, the university established KUHT, the first educational television station in the nation.[8] During this period, however, the university as a private institution was facing financial troubles. Tuition failed to cover rising costs, and in turn, tuition increases caused a drop in enrollment. After a lengthy battle between supporters of the University

Cullen Building on the University of Houston campus. On June 1, 2007, former UH President and Chancellor Dr. Jay Gogue left UH and UH System to become President of Auburn University. The University of Houston System Board of Regents appointed John M. Rudley, vice chancellor/vice president for administration and finance, to serve as Interim UH System Chancellor and Interim UH President.[18] On October 15, 2007, Dr. Renu Khator—who had served as provost and senior vice president of the University of South Florida—was selected for the position of UH System chancellor and UH president.[19] On November 5, 2007, Khator was confirmed as the third person to hold the UH System chancellor and UH president position simultaneously, and took her position in January 2008.[20]

Traditions

The Cougar Paw

A Cougar sculpture in front of the E. Cullen Building Cougar First Impressions, a program headed by the UH Staff Council, takes place every year on the first two days of classes, when faculty and staff turn out to welcome new and returning students.[48] Frontier Fiesta, a re-creation of a 19th-century Western town, with music, food and historical exhibits, is a major event on campus each spring semester. The student led festival is a part of a long-standing tradition at UH dating back to the 1940’s.[49] The official colors of the University of Houston are scarlet red and albino white. These were the colors of Sam Houston’s ancestor—Sir Hugh—and were adopted by UH at the same time as the official seal. Scarlet red symbolizes courage or inner strength to face the unknown, and white symbolizes the goodness and purity of spirit embodied in helping one’s fellow man. The seal of the University of Houston, officially adopted in

Graphic representation of The Cougar Paw The Cougar Paw is a popular hand sign used by University of Houston students, faculty, alumni, and athletics fans to represent camaraderie and support. The Cougar Paw tradition was adopted through several athletics events between the University of Houston and The University of Texas. The first time UH played UT in football was in 1953, and since this was their first meeting, members of Alpha Phi Omega, the service fraternity in charge of taking care of Shasta I, the university’s mascot, brought her to the game. During the trip, Shasta’s front paw was caught in the cage door and one toe was cut off. At the game, members of the opposing team discovered what had happened and began taunting UH players by holding up their hands with the ring finger bent. UT

went on to win this game 28–7, and UH students began using the sign as notice that they would remember the taunts. In 1968, at their second meeting, the Cougars, holding up the now-adopted symbol of UH pride, played UT to a 20–20 tie. UH did not play UT again until 1976, the first year UH was a member of the Southwest Conference. In front of a record crowd, UH defeated UT 30–0. This solidified the use of the Cougar Paw as a tradition.[50]
