Show Your Hawk Pride and Connect with Others

Whether you're participating, spectating, browsing, or cheering on the others, there are a variety of unique events and activities to experience at UHCL. From annual traditions like the Cultural Extravaganza, to faculty vs. student kickball games, UHCL's campus activities offer an ideal opportunity to explore life outside the classroom.

  Annual Events

Since we believe that there’s more to UHCL than just going to class every day, we hold a number of annual events that bring everyone together. While our most famous event is the annual Chili Cook-Off, now in its 28th year, we also hold annual musical performances and celebratory events for the student body and surrounding community.

  Campus Traditions

With an impressive legacy in the area that stretches back over 40 years, we’re proud of our traditions at University of Houston-Clear Lake. We start fall off with “I Heart UHCL Day” each October, we show our Hawk spirit with Blue and Green Wednesday each week, and we celebrate our Cultural Extravaganza every spring. Come catch the Hawk Spirit!
