Dunlap

Preston Dunlap
Sophomore, Biology, School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics

What does "Comet Spirit" mean to you?
"I think of Comet spirit as being a beacon of orange and green light. I've realized that our spirit is not just about going to sporting events or whooshing on a day-to-day basis, it's also about being in line with the University's vision and upholding its values every day."

 
Dunn

Darrel "Friidom" Dunn
Senior, Arts and Technology, School of Arts and Humanities

What does "Comet Spirit" mean to you?
"Coming from an entirely different background and being introduced to a lot of different people from all over the world has changed me exponentially. To bridge the gap amongst the community here should be our ultimate purpose with regard to Comet spirit. That will make us unstoppable."

 
Hart

Julia Hart
Senior, Marketing, School of Management

What does "Comet Spirit" mean to you?
"Comet spirit means being proud that your colors are green and orange. It means being proud that your mascot is named Temoc. It means not being embarrassed to tell people that you go to UT Dallas and you love it. It means being innovative and hard working in anything you do."

 
Knudtson

Brooke Knudtson
Junior, Political Science, School of Economic Political and Policy Sciences

What does "Comet Spirit" mean to you?
"Having the wonderful opportunity of being a UT Dallas cheerleader, I carry spirit with me every day. Being there representing UT Dallas with a smile says it all, whether encouraging the volleyball, basketball or chess teams with enthusiasm, or simply showing up to an event."

 
Lizarraga

Catalina Lizarraga
Sophomore, Healthcare Studies, School of Interdisciplinary Studies

What does "Comet Spirit" mean to you?
"Comet spirit means not being afraid to be yourself. For my everyday life, this means taking part in conversations and activities that are new to me. Diversity flourishes at UT Dallas. I see Comet spirit every day in the people I meet here on campus."

 
Pollack

Clarissa Pollack
Senior, Art and Performance, School of Arts and Humanities

What does "Comet Spirit" mean to you?
"Comet spirit means embracing all of the unique students on our campus as a part of the Comet family. Comet spirit is being proud of a student for being who they are, unequivocally. No two Comets follow the same path; infinity is the limit!"

 
Staas

Garrett Staas
Senior, Electrical Engineering, Erik Jonsson School of Engineering and Computer Science

What does "Comet Spirit" mean to you?
"To me, Comet pride is giving back to UT Dallas in some way through the different programs that affect students. Anyone can show pride by wearing a T-shirt, but I show my Comet pride by investing my time and energy in programs that will leave a lasting impact on someone's life."

 
Truesdale

Katie Truesdale
Sophomore, Emerging Media and Communication, School of Arts and Humanities

What does "Comet Spirit" mean to you?
"Comet spirit isn't fleeting—it doesn't just present itself at sporting events or academic award ceremonies. It is apparent in loving the color combination of green and orange, it's mini-whooshing when something in your life goes well. Comet spirit is something that you will carry with you no matter where your life may take you after graduation."

 
Ugua

Godswill Ugwa
Senior, Biology, School of Natural Science and Mathematics

What does "Comet Spirit" mean to you?
"Comet spirit means love and passion for our school and its growth. We're different because we're young. One day we'll have ecstatic green and orange spray-painted students filling up the Activity Center at games and cheering athletes on, but until then, our student body will create spirit in its own nuanced way."
