Transcript \\ CO COOCSl" vs THE ONGOING DEBATE: As diverse as the student body might have been, one subject seemed to pit students against one another in two distinct categories. To put it simply, there were those who had school spirit, and those who did not. The lack of school spirit on campus was a major concern for many of the sports-enthusiast Cougars who attended football games and homecoming events and wore their school t-shirts and hats with pride. These students expressed frustration as their less-spirited peers breezed by The Daily Cougar sports page to get to the crossword puzzle with little concern for the latest football scores or baseball game's outcome. "It makes me mad that our athletes don't get more recognition than they do," said senior English major Crystal Doucette. "We have some good athletes in this school, and nobody supports them because they have no school spirit." While many students stood in agreement with Doucette's remarks, a seemingly greater number was not bothered at all by the lack of school spirit. Those students, however, expressed little interest in school sports or campus activities. "I had a little bit of school spirit in high school, but it never seemed like such a big deal to me. People at UH generally don't come to school to have fun. I come to get my education, then I go home and have fun there," said freshman sociology major Daniel Perry. Those who were determined to spread their spirit had no reason to lose hope, though. Sometimes, school spirit just naturally developed as students spent more time on campus. "I never went to a single football game during the entire time I was an undergraduate," said graduate political science major Crys Lewis. "I started going once I was in grad school, and it turned out to be a lot of fun." -Cortney Martin Hooray for spirit! This UH cheerleader beams brightly at the crowd and encourages everyone to show some school spirit. Although spirit was heavily promoted by some student groups, many still felt that team spirit was a rare commodity at UH. Photo by Lauren Wilson Letk get some spirit in this school, stat! "This school is seriously in need of some more school spirit. IVs like nobody here cares about supporting our teamsT said senior media production major Donald Scherer. "I went to Dulles High School, one of the biggest football schools in this area. When I got to UH, it just blew my mind how few people were into that!'
