Homecoming 2019 Keeping it Fresh

The Jaguar Spirit Cup Competition

The Jaguar Spirit Cup Competition, sponsored by UHV Residence Life, is an annual Homecoming tradition that gives offices on campus the opportunity to show off their Jaguar spirit.

Faculty and staff are encouraged to decorate the outside or front area of their offices the week prior to Homecoming. Offices can register to compete on JagSync. To increase your chances of winning this year, students will be encouraged to visit each office that participates to receive a stamp on their Jaguar Spirit Passport Card. Students who visit every office will have an opportunity to win $50, $25, and $10 gift cards.

The Jaguar Spirit Cup will be given based on originality, Jaguar spirit, creativity, and overall appearance. Any office that has not won first place within the past three years will have an opportunity to win first place this year. The winning office will have its name engraved on the Jaguar Spirit Cup and will be able to display the cup for a year. Recognition will also be given to the second and third place offices, and all winners will be announced through campus email.

The Spirit Cup Competition time line is as follows:

  • Friday, February 15 - The deadline to register to participate on JagSync.
  • Wednesday, February 20 - The deadline to have all offices decorated.
  • Monday, February 25 - Students will start visiting offices and voting on JagSync.
  • Wednesday, February 27 - The Spirit Cup Showcase and Viewing Party from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. in Jaguar Hall Lobby.
