Student Spirit Cup
The Cougar Spirit Cup Competition is the annual competition to award the students that show the most Cougar spirit by competing in a series of fun and challenging tasks throughout Homecoming Week. Show off your Cougar Pride and school spirit by displaying the best representation of what the University of Houston is all about! We encourage participants to focus on Houston and the University’s culture, pride, traditions and great school spirit. The broad nature of the theme provides participants the opportunity to be creatively fun and unique and showcase their organization in the best way possible! Let the games begin!
Cougar Spirit Bell
Homecoming at UH is a tradition dating back to 1946. It brightens the campus with Cougar Red and brings out spirit beyond a football game. It is a week celebrating UH, uniting students and organizations and showcasing Cougar Pride and Cougar Spirit.
All parts of the campus come together to celebrate, including faculty and staff. Co-sponsored by the UH Staff Council and UH Alumni Association, the Spirit Bell Challenge is the annual competition to award the faculty and staff who show the most Cougar spirit by decorating their offices during Homecoming Week.
This year, Homecoming Week is October 30 – November 4, 2017. The Theme is “There’s No Place Like Houston” and faculty and staff are encouraged to decorate their offices for the entire week using that theme. Awards will be given based on originality, Cougar spirit, creativity, and overall appearance. Judging will take place on Tuesday, October 31st and Wednesday, November 1st, with the winner announced on Monday, November 6th.
The winning office receives its name on the Spirit Bell trophy and has pictures displayed online on the UHAA and UH Staff Council websites.
To register to be judged in the competition, office representatives should complete the online entry form by the close of business Tuesday, October 24th.
