Hand Signal
  • At game time, Cougar fans show their support by making the "cougar sign," made by folding the ring finger of the right hand toward the palm.
  • The tradition dates back to 1953, when Shasta I, the presiding cougar mascot, lost a toe in a cage door on her way to a game. The opposing team, the University of Texas, mocked UH by imitating the cougar's injury. The Cougars soon adopted that gesture as a symbol of pride.
  • The University of Houston offers 120 undergraduate majors and minors, and several pre-professional programs leading to careers in medicine, law, pharmacy and more. They also offer programs leading to teacher certification
  • The most popular majors include: Business, Management, Marketing, Psychology, Social Sciences, Communication, Journalism, and Biological and Biomedical Sciences.
  • The UH Frontiersmen display the Texas flag and the University of Houston flag at football games
  • The Frontiersmen’s primary purpose is to support UH athletics, school spirit and Frontier Fiesta.
