Hellraiser tradition is more than just raging, spirit and bonding. WE ARE A TRADITION OF FAMILY. Becoming a Hellraiser is about finding a place inside this immense university where you can truly BE YOURSELF.

Paint Up

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.


The Running of the Hill

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 the Roberts hill. Spread out and stop traffic. We run down the hill yelling and don’t stop until we hit the gate.


The Many Eyes Of Texas

a) When entering the stadium of any UT sporting event, we sing The Eyes to announce our presence, sometimes followed by a rousing rendition of Texas Fight.

b) Whenever ten or more Hellraisers are gathered, “The Eyes of Texas” are sung loudly and proudly at midnight.


Letters

The Longhorn Hellraisers have long stood out among the average fans at Longhorn sporting events. To show even greater unconditional support for our Longhorn teams, five privileged members paint their bodies with “TEXAS” and two other random members paint their bodies with horns, at all football games, big volleyball matches, and important basketball games.

Through 110 degree heat, 20 degree wind chills, torrential downpours, and driving snow, these Hellraisers bare it all to exhibit their dedication to the horns. The right to participate is an honored tradition, with previous letters passing down their mark to a member of their choice upon graduation. Below is a list of the elite few who have held the honor of being a Hellraiser letterman.
