Welcome to the home of the Houston Texas Tigers (HTT),
a 14-time Capstone chapter of the Mizzou Alumni Association.
The Houston Texas Tigers boast a proud history of service to the University of Missouri. There are 2,562 alumni in the Houston area. Our chapter has 408 members, including 40+ student members in Columbia.



On January 16, 2019, all Mizzou alumni are invited to meet former astronaut Linda Godwin, MS '76, PhD '80 physics, and hear about her experiences from Mizzou to space and back. Godwin’s educational path opened a door to her career at NASA, one she never envisioned as a child growing up. She will share her experiences and impressions from four shuttle missions, including visits to two space stations.

Learn how the microgravity in a free-fall orbit provides unique opportunities for science as well as observations of our home planet and beyond. Godwin will also tell how the International Space Station brings together many nations and cultures for the benefit of the planet, and she'll touch on how NASA’s current plans for exploration and enabling private space opportunities are important to continuing our position as a leader in space exploration. Registration is free, but RSVPs are strongly encouraged.

Houston Texas Tigers Welcome Mizzou for Texas Bowl


Our chapter recently hosted a bowl welcome party and helped the Mizzou Alumni Association host its official Tiger Tailgate prior to December's Texas Bowl, which pitted Mizzou against the University of Texas. Thanks to all who attended!

                            Student Sendoff 2017


Our chapter hosted numerous Houston-area students who are starting their Mizzou career this fall. Our annual Student Sendoff gave students - from various area high schools - and their families a chance to meet each other and visit with local alumni. The Houston Texas Tigers wish all our students the best of luck as the new semester begins.

Award-Winning Volunteer

Congratulations to HTT’s own Erika Harrison. Erika has won the Mizzou Alumni’s Regional GOLD Award, honoring outstanding volunteering by a recent graduate. Erika was honored in CoMo during MAA’s Leaders Weekend in September.
Erika’s involvement with the Houston Texas Tigers has not been a long one, but it has been extremely impactful.

As Mizzou has gone through the challenges of the past two years Erika has taken the time to provide perspective for our local chapter and leadership among national alumni. Erika’s name was at the top of the list of supporters who signed a petition in support of reactivating Mizzou’s Black Alumni Network, and she was named the president of the alumni group this spring.

As a recent graduate and a Houston native, Erika has provided great support to student recruiting efforts in our area. Erika first became involved with the Houston Texas Tigers in 2015, and immediately offered to serve as the chapter Secretary. As a passionate foodie and blogger, she’s organized outings to some of the hottest spots on Houston’s extensive restaurant scene.


Support our Scholarship Fund

Our alumni chapter created an Endowed Scholarship fund in 2007 and has given more than $30,000 in scholarships to deserving students from our area attending Mizzou since.

Through fundraising events and alumni donations, we are able to help ensure that the best and brightest students from our area have an opportunity to join the Mizzou family. Donations of any amount truly make an impact toward helping these students reach their future success.

You can now donate online through our chapter's Giving To Mizzou page.
