Spirit of Houston Alumni Association!

The mission of the Spirit of Houston Alumni is to serve and support our University, its students, fellow alumni, and the UHAA through:

  • Seeking out opportunities to provide service and assistance to the current Spirit of Houston to facilitate its mission to support the University community
  • Providing scholarships to current members of the Spirit of Houston to encourage their academic success
  • Establishing social networks and fellowship opportunities for former members of the Spirit of Houston
  • Fostering opportunities to maintain involvement with the University as a whole, and with UHAA

If you are an alumnus of the Spirit of Houston, which includes marching band, cheer teams, Cougar Dolls, and mascots, we invite you to contact us and become a part of our organization.

Upcoming Events

Come tailgate with the Spirit of Houston Alumni 4 hours before every kick-off at all home games. This year we also have sponsorships to help cover tailgating expenses.

For more information- CLICK HERE

Feed The Spirit occurs at the end of Spirit Week and is a time to serve dinner to the current SOH members and show them how much we appreciate all they do. This year, we will have our SOHAA Annual Meeting on the same day. The Annual Meeting is a time to reconnect with each other and get pumped for tailgating.
