Gratitude Week

Gratitude Week
Gratitude Week: Nov. 26 - Dec. 1

It is never too early to start focusing on what you are grateful for and UHCL is looking to do just that. In the wake of Thanksgiving and the “shopping holidays,” UHCL Hawks are spending the week of Nov. 26 to Dec. 1 focusing on, celebrating and sharing gratitude. With events like the Lighting of the Letters, Giving Tuesday, a kite festival, and many more, it is shaping up to be a week of grace and kindness to remember!
