Life at UHC

Upgrade your leadership skills. Serve the community. Build lifelong friendships. Try something new.

Get involved in clubs, intramural sports and honor societies to round out your college experience. Whether you’re organizing a softball team or hosting prom for teens on long-term hospital stays, UHC clubs are your chance to grow and have fun.

Here are some of our most popular activities and events

Intramural softball

Polish your pitch. Supercharge your swing. Then compete for the coveted title against other teams on campus and at City Park.


Crawfish boil

It can’t be springtime without crawfish! This lawn bash—with Cajun- spiced crawfish and all the fixins—is a beloved UHC tradition.


Welcome Week

Reconnect with old friends and meet the new crop of UHC students. A barbecue, ice cream sundaes, and the DJ-led Moreau Mixer help you ease into another school year.

Wrap up your semester with tasty treats and lively music at UHC’s holiday celebration.

  • Music clubs from Tipitina’s to the House of Blues.

  • Major-league teams (Saints, Pelicans, and Baby Cakes) and marquee events such as the Super Bowl or NCAA Final Four.
  • Festivals of every persuasion: Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, Gretna Heritage Festival, more.
