The Deans Cup

The Dean's Cup Challenge

Participate in the challenge.  Win the cup.

The Dean’s Cup is a student-initiated residence life program that helps keep campus life lively. It brings residents together through residence-hall-based competitions in various contests throughout the academic year. The Dean's Cup program was started in 2008–2009 by the Office of Residence Life, as the result of a student suggestion.

After each contest, residence halls are awarded points. The residence hall with the most points at the end of the academic year will win the Dean’s cup.

Dean's Cup Events

There are at least 2 Dean's Cup events per month during the academic year. Residents compete as a group unit. Some contests might be ongoing (common area damages, amount of recycling, etc) while others might be a specific event (volleyball tournament, egg toss contest, attendance percentage at a presentation, etc). Scoring for each contest is as follows:

  • 1st place 60 points
  • 2nd place 50 points
  • 3rd place 40 points
  • 4th place 30 points
  • 5th place 20 points
  • 6th place 10 points

The director of residence life/assistant dean for student affairs is the final arbiter of points, and is also responsible for maintaining the point totals and the Dean’s Cup web page. The director is also responsible for setting the schedule of Dean’s Cup events and will solicit ideas from the faculty, staff, and students.

Dean's Cup Trophy

The Dean’s Cup Trophy is kept secured and safe by the director of residence life/assistant dean for student affairs. The Dean's Cup Trophy often makes appearances at Dean's Cup events through out the year. Each semester's winning residence hall name is engraved on the trophy and a Dean’s cup plaque is given to the winning building to be put on display.
