Homecoming at UH is a tradition dating back to 1946. It brightens the campus with Cougar Red and brings out spirit beyond a football game. It is a week celebrating UH, uniting students and organizations, and showcasing Cougar Pride and Cougar Spirit.
All parts of the campus come together to celebrate, including faculty and staff. Sponsored by the UH Staff Council, the University of Houston Homecoming Spirit Bell Competition is the annual competition to award the faculty and staff who show the most Cougar spirit by decorating their offices during Homecoming Week.
This fall the 2020 Homecoming Spirit Bell Competition is going virtual.
Homecoming Spirit Bell Competition will take place from November 4th to November 12th, 2020, at noon.
