Meet the Coordinator!

Eddie Mendoza is the Spirit Coordinator for the 2017-2018 year. 

Major: Integrative Studies- Biology, Chemistry, and Business.

Favorite thing about UPC: My favorite thing about UPC is the excitement and spirit created on campus! The organization helps you feel at home and ready to make new friends and experiences.

Favorite program so far this year: My favorite UPC event was silent disco! I had so much fun dancing and watching others dance to a variety of music! 

Dream program to bring to UNT: My dream UPC event would be a campus wide color music event! I would love to see DJs play their music and shoot out paint into the audience with lights all around.

What are you looking foward to this year: I am looking forward to working with the homecoming crew this year! Homecoming is one of my favorite events, and I am so excited to finally be a part of the planning!
