Temoc Gets a Fresh Look


Students demonstrated a whimsical flare with the naming of the UT Dallas mascot as Temoc. (It’s comet spelled backward.)
Until recently, though, there was no official illustration of the quirky and beloved mascot.
The trademarked image, now available for University community use, is the result of collaborative effort over the past year to encapsulate campus spirit. An array of groups who engage with UT Dallas every day, including Student Government, Fraternity and Sorority Life, student athletes and administrative staff, helped shape the final design.

DID YOU KNOW … Temoc debuted in 1998 and was originally named Blaze. The No. 1 Comet on campus was the brainchild of Aaron Aryanpur BA’00 when he was a student.
