Class of 2004

I knew UMHB was a special place, but after graduating and then starting a family, I knew I wanted my kids to be involved with UMHB traditions. Cru Kids is perfect! I love that the girls get the chance to make memories, and I love that I get to see their excitement in making those memories.

Join us as we celebrate Crunk's birthday. Each year, we celebrate our mascot on the day of our first home football game. There will be fun activities for our Cru Kids to participate in, as well as cupcakes. No need to bring a gift, but if you want to, you can bring some Easy Mac for The Source, UMHB's on-campus food pantry for students.
