The University of Houston, as the state's third largest public university (behind only Texas and Texas A&M). We feel that the University of Houston deserves to be in a major athletic conference such as the Big East. The University of Houston is one of the major public universities in the state of Texas, and is currently the third largest school in the state (behind only Texas and Texas A&M). UH has an enrollment of over 36,000 students, and a strong reputation for academics and research. The University is well on its way to becoming a Tier One research institution. The city of Houston is the largest city in Texas, and the fourth largest city in the United States. The city of Houston is one of the largest television markets in the nation. The University of Houston features a Top 25 football team, and is soon to invest millions of dollars into renovating its athletic facilities within the next year or two. The University could use Reliant Stadium and/or the Toyota Center until our new facilities are completed. UH is an urban university, and would be a good cultural fit with most schools in the present Big East. Having the University of Houston in a major athletic conference would be a great economic benefit to both the school and to the city of Houston. It would benefit UH in its efforts to become a Tier One research university, and it would enhance its academic reputation. It would bolster our state higher education system and would benefit not only the city of Houston but the state of Texas as a whole. We feel that our elected officials and business community should support all of our public universities first and foremost. Please sign our petition and forward it to any UH alumni, supporters of the University, and Houstonians that you know. Additionally, please contact your elected officials, members of the business community, and those influential to our other public universities and encourage them to support their local public university, The University of Houston. Go Coogs!
