Inside Track to Incredible Experiences

Whether you are interested in recreation sports, performing arts or interactive and informative lectures, you can find it at UHCL. While you are on campus enjoying exceptional events and activities, you can also experience what makes UHCL unique. From campus traditions like Chili Cook-Off and I Heart UHCL Day to the cultural events in Bayou Theater, 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 the Chili Cook-Off (now in its 28th year), we also hold annual musical performances and educational opportunities 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. Chief among them are “I Heart UHCL Day” (held each October), Blue and Green Wednesday and the Cultural Extravaganza! Come catch the Hawk Spirit!
