The Eagles! UHS students have many opportunities to participate in school activities. Students have created clubs related to their special interests after securing faculty sponsorship. These include membership in Junior Chapters of the Society of Women Engineers and Society of Automotive Engineers, Yearbook, Student-Run School Store, DECA, National Honor Society and more. Dances and parties, including prom, are also an important part of student life at UHS, as well as MHSAA basketball and volleyball.
Robotics University High School’s Get It! (Girls Exploring Together Information Technology) Students compete at Robofest each year and have brought home many medals! The team is sponsored and piloted by UHS industry partner, Michigan Council of Women in Technology Foundation (MCWTF).
Innovative Vehicle Design (IVD) University High School students, with the guidance of UHS instructors, have built two electric cars to present at the annual international Convergence Education Foundation conferences. IVD emphasizes innovation, rather than competition and involves a two-year design and build process. The UHS IVD team won Five Trophies at the 2010 Convergence Conference.
DECA Marketing Club University High has a thriving DECA marketing and business club. Students learn leadership, communication and business skills, participate in community service and have been award winners at district, state and international competitions.
