Transcript C•O•U•G•A•R C•R•A•Z•E F•R•E•S•H•M•E•N rendezvous More than 200 incoming freshmen were the first to experience Cougar Craze, an innovative program designed to improve school spirit among students. "This ain't orientation," said the invitations students received a few weeks before school started. So what is it? Cougar Craze was organized by the Houston Alumni Organization so new students could meet one another and learn more about the campus. Coordinator of Programs Nick Brines said the event was designed to show students that "there is a life on campus, there are things to be involved in. We're also trying to build class unity and spirit through Cougar Craze." The freshmen met at the Athletics/Alumni Center the day before classes started. They were enthusiastically greeted at the entrance of the building by upperclassmen and led into the ballroom. UH Deputy Chancellor Dr. Sybil Todd, football Head Coach Kim Helton and the Frontiersmen all addressed the students. The band and cheerleaders lead students through cheers, the school fight song and the alma mater. Throughout the night, various prizes emblazoned with UH logos were raffled off while KRBE disc jockey Yo Jay maintained an exciting pace. Benito Martinez, a representative from PlayFair, also conducted activities throughout the event. PlayFair is a national organization that works with large groups to get them to meet and interact with as many people as possible in a short amount of time. Some activities that Martinez organized involved learning other people's birthdays, names and what they had in common. One more difficult activity was dancing backwards, so participants could can check out everyone else on the dance floor. Brines said the program was a great success and will be done again in the coming years. "(We) only had a few months to plan this thing and it was great. Next year it will be even better because we'll have had a whole year to organize it," he said. Sophomore mechanical engineering major David Duron was one of about 50 upperclass volunteers who helped with the program. "Being involved with Cougar Craze exceeded anything that I did with orientation over the summer. Even though it was a one day thing, it was much more exciting," said Duron, who was a member of the O-Team, a group that assists the Dean of Students office with running freshman orientations May Reyhani, a freshman University Studies student, participated in the day's Craze events "It was a great way to meet other freshmen before school started," she said.
