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. 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 one of five $20 gift cards.

The Jaguar Spirit Cup will be given based on originality, Jaguar spirit, creativity, and overall appearance. The winning office will have its name engraved on the Jaguar Spirit Cup and will be able to display the cup for a year. The winners will be announced through campus email. Recognition will also be given to the second and third place offices.

The Spirit Cup Competition time line is as follows:

  • Monday, February 12th – The deadline to register to participate on JagSync.  
  • Monday, February 19th – The deadline to have all offices decorated.
