February's winter storms have created historic challenges for the country and for Texans in particular, most of whom are now concerned with meeting basic needs for themselves and their loved ones. With this in mind, Homecoming 2021 for the week of Sunday, Feb. 21 through Sunday, Feb. 28 is canceled. We are pleased that some of the planned activities will be re-scheduled; stay tuned for an announcement of new dates later this spring.
Some alumni and friends have asked how they can help students in need. If you are in a position to do so, please consider an emergency gift to the Hilltoppers Overcoming Obstacles Fund (HOOF). HOOF provides financial relief to students facing unexpected hardships. As millions of Texans struggle with food and water shortages, rolling power outages, and the impacts of freezing temperatures, the need for urgent support continues to grow - especially for off-campus students. Your gift to HOOF will bring peace and comfort to Hilltoppers in their time of great need.
