UHCOpen House 2018
On Sunday, April 15, 2018, close to 100 undergraduates, high school students, parents, and guests visited the University of Houston College of Optometry for our annual UHCOpen House event. Over 20 UHCO students, faculty, and staff members guided guests on tours of the College, shared demos in our labs and clinics, and led a student informational panel to share advice and tips with future applicants about Optometry school life, the application process, studying for the OAT, and much more.

UHCO alumnus, Simon Yeung, OD, ’81, has established the Yeung Family Scholarship Endowment, a $30,000 gift that will provide scholarship opportunities for students. “The college and its professors have given me so much, I sincerely want to give back. The professors are leaving a legacy of charitable giving, I am learning to follow their footsteps,” he said. He and his wife, Mrs. Constance Yeung, said they hope the endowment will give an opportunity for students to further their careers in optometry.
