Each game of any kind is preceded by a warm-up time of drinking, joking, and of course... painting. This is when you cover your face in a design of white and orange only you can really understand. Not a Letter but feel the need for more paint? If you're lucky (and loud enough) you can get one of the Horns at a Football game.
A fundamental aspect of Longhorn Hellraisers’ organizational culture is our traditional chants. They have been created by and learned from, Hellraisers who came before us.
Passed down from generation to generation, our chants are a way to celebrate Hellraiser history, commemorate past presidents, and express our school pride. Some are sung in victory, some defeat, but every single one has a story and we know them by heart.
After a stroll down Guadalupe during home football games, we turn down 21st for a faster descent. Line up single file and walk down the middle of the street until we reach Roberts hill, spread out and stop traffic. We run down the hill yelling and don't stop until we hit the gate.
After each touchdown at home football games, we throw one of our members up in the air as many times as points we have. We count point by point out loud with our horns up each time we lift our members, even with scores in the 50s, 60s, or even 70s.
During the Pink Out Game for volleyball in the Fall, five Hell's Belles will be our loud and proud letters. Rather than painting with white and burnt orange, all members use white and pink paint for the letters and their face paint to honor fighters and survivors of breast cancer. The purpose of this game is to increase breast cancer awareness across the community and to raise funds to battle against the disease.
Every home football game our president will choose two of our members, usually new members, who are Hellraisers through and through to be the horns. They stand by our letters and represent the organization with longhorns on their chests. Many of our horns have become an official letter, so it's the perfect chance to show your passion for UT sports!
