Transcript ULTIMATE PRIDE By Sara Nichols An oversized stuffed cougar sporting red apparel sits upright on a shelf, guarding the door of Room 138. The message of this mini- Shasta is clear: "Do not enter unless wearing red." Simon Bott's office is littered with all the trappings of a busy professor — a mountain of ungraded pop quizzes spread across the desk, a bookcase lined with an abnormal number of chemistry books and pictures of his wife and children. One thing sets Bott apart from his colleagues—many people would say he is the University's most school-spirited professor. The red hue radiating from the paraphernalia scattered around his office certainly speaks to his loyalty and respect for all things UH. "My favorite part of being a Cougar," Bott said, "is that it's something to be proud of." Bott loves UH, and there's no denying that. This Fall marks the second semester of Bott's personal endeavor to encourage more students to be involved on campus. Participation in student activities and pride for one's university, he said, is a "huge part of education" and makes a significant difference. In his classes, Bott gives students a little added incentive for showing their Cougar pride by offering them extra credit if they wear red on certain days. On Bott's suggestion to the UH Faculty Senate, the school began the Cougar Trading Cards program. The cards are given away at various locations and events, with a $1,000 scholarship (among other prizes) awarded to students who collect all 56. In 2009 he launched "Profs with Pride," a blog in which he highlights upcoming events and UH breaking news, as well as links to other University blogs. He also maintains a Twitter page (twitter.com/cougarchemist) featuring frequently-updated "UH Event of the Day" posts. Promoting the Cougar spirit isn't all there is to Bott's philosophy as an educator. His attitude toward the University is optimistic and future-oriented. He praises the work UH Chancellor and President Renu Khator has done since taking over in January of 2008. And of course, like most Cougars, Bott's sights are set on Tier One. He said he knew from his first day at UH that Tier One was within the school's reach, and he is proud to be playing a part now that that goal is closer than ever. There is still work to be done. Bott said he would like to see an improvement in the enrollment standards for students coming into UH, and he emphasized the importance of creating a middle ground between the traditional student body and motivated transfer or commuter students. And while campus life is important for a student's academic success, Bott thinks the University needs to continue treating its students properly and creating a culture of courtesy and community. To this end, there are many great activities going on around campus, Bott said, but many students either are not aware of them or do not take advantage of them. He is trying to change that by galvanizing Cougars into action and, as a result, solidifying the University's reputation as a world-class educational experience.
