Rain may have saturated Houston last weekend, but it didn't dampen the cougar spirit at the PROMES 40th Anniversary barbecue held in front of Engineering Building 1 on Saturday.

Hundreds of current PROMES students and PROMES alums gathered to celebrate the history, longevity and success of the program, which serves as a community for undergraduate engineering students and offers academic support and skills development. Partygoers also enjoyed a dunk tank, inflatable slide and a photo booth complete with wacky props and costumes.

VIDEO: Giving a Hand to Those in Need: Two UH Undergrads Share Their Gifts

8-year-old Rafael tries on pieces of his gift - a new hand from UH students

On a Wednesday evening in November, Maria Sanchez sits quietly weeping inside a private room on the first floor of the University of Houston M.D. Anderson library.

"My baby just held a cell phone with his left hand," she allows, as the tears continue to stream.

Might not seem tear-worthy to most, but her baby is 8-year-old Rafael. Likely born with a form of symbrachydactyly, Rafael’s fingers never formed in utero, leaving him with only a tiny fist-like hand.
