Hold on to your horses because the fall semester is officially in overdrive. This is around the time where the social lives of students start to plummet because classes start to become more than just taking syllabus quizzes. College is the equivalent of a horror movie that’s lasted a bit too long.
Hurricane Harvey impacted Texas residents in various ways. It was a storm that put us through a variety of trials and, in the end, we were able to perceiver. When the weather channel started to talk about how impactful Harvey would be, I just thought
they were exaggerating. Heck, I even went to the gym the night before we were hit by the storm. That night at midnight, I realized this was a serious storm; the rain was pounding on my roof and there was an indoor pool in my house.
UHCL has been handling the Harvey impact in the best possible way. UHCL has offered aid and programs to students who were impacted by the storm. Even the students have gotten involved and made donations. There are always going to be events that pop out from the sky such, and it’s nice to know that a campus such as UHCL makes the students safety a top priority.
UHCL has had a variety of events these past two weeks such as the Welcome Back Bash, Student Organization Expo and movie screenings. Now I’ve been at UHCL for three years, so I know these events are chock-full of freebies! Nothing better to get the semester started off right than one or maybe 12 water bottles.
I would also like to announce that my weekly favorites are coming back next week. A weekly favorite is any TV show, restaurant, food, snack, book, etc. that I believe deserves a spotlight and a chance to be experienced by other UHCL students. Keep a look out for that!
Well that’s it for this week hawks, I hope you all have a great third week of classes. Next week I’ll be describing what senior classes are really like.
