Nobody wants to see that; just kidding

Combining a theme about swimsuits and school spirit was a puzzle for student organizations at this year’s Spirit Art judging.
The judging took place at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, outside the Gorilla Crossing in Overman Student Center.
The event is one of several Homecoming events to take place throughout the week.
This year 26 organizations submitted puzzle pieces, all designed to the Homecoming theme: Swimsuit Edition.
“We had 28 pieces to fill, so getting 26 was pretty good,” said Victoria Simoncic, Homecoming committee Spirit Art chair and senior in business management.
Organizations submitted design ideas to Simoncic for approval before receiving their piece. After review and approval, any necessary changes to the design were due on Sept. 19.
“Usually changes are made to a design if two organizations submit a similar design,” Simoncic said. “Whoever submitted the design first gets to keep it, the second will have to go through the changes process.”
Spirit Art pieces are one of several Homecoming competitions student organizations can compete in for SWEEPS points.
“The SWEEPS trophy is awarded to the organization with the most points at the Homecoming game,” said Kelsey Denham, senior in elementary education. “Organizations must attend two out of the three Homecoming meetings held each semester to be eligible to compete. After that, it is up to them which competitions … they compete in.”
Simoncic added that SWEEPS and Spirit Art are another way to advertise for student organizations.
All 26 pieces of Spirit Art will be on display for students and residents to see at the east entrance of Carnie Smith football stadium for Yell Like Hell at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 3.
