Comet Spirit Programs


About Temoc

Temoc is the official mascot of UT Dallas. The character of Temoc was crafted in 1998 by alumnus Aaron Aryanpur. Temoc's name, blue skin and fiery orange hair all come from a single source: Temoc is "comet" spelled backwards.

Temoc's best friends are the UT Dallas Cheerleaders, Power Dancers and athletes. Temoc is very serious about his physique and can be spotted working out at the Activity Center. He is very supportive of the UT Dallas Athletics of all kinds: soccer, basketball, baseball, volleyball and others. He is a part of the UT Dallas community and is one with the crowd.

Temoc likes to attend major events on campus such as the Homecoming Parade, Casino Night, Freshman Convocation, Orientations, Alumni Breakfasts and more. Temoc also enjoys giving back to the community by participating in community service programs. He loves to get invitations so don't hesitate to request an appearance at your next event.
