Utah Valley University College Cup
Reading Time: 2 minutes UVU is hosting the College Cup this year to get students more involved with their respective colleges.
UVU is hosting a College Cup this semester, themed after the House Cup from the famous Harry Potter series.
It is a series of events happening around campus throughout the week of Jan. 22-26. Student Vice President of Academics, Kenzi Womack, provided The Review with some materials on the games and a description of what students can do to get engaged. “Did you know you belong to a specific college or school within UVU based on your major?”
Womack shared that “College Cup is an opportunity for students to make connections in their respective college, become more aware of opportunities in their respective college, and build pride in their respective college by participating in events each day.”
The Cup works like the House Cup, in that instead of point values given for heroic deeds or demerits for poor behavior, it will be scored on the amount of engagement from students of a given college. Events such as movie nights, debates, giveaways and more will be held during this week, with the college with the most participation being crowned victor.
The trophy will be a perpetuating trophy, as the student body council is hoping to make this a yearly tradition. UVU has had increasingly higher participation in events over recent years, and school is a great way to network and engage with people within your own area of study, as well as other students and faculty throughout the university.
The events that will be happening follow the schedule below with location, times and activity:
