About the Pioneer Cup

Pioneer Cup is a friendly competition between the college’s residence halls for leadership in civic engagement and sustainability.  Throughout the year, residents earn points for their halls by participating in a wide variety of activities, programs, and events related to the competition themes. For example, residents can earn points for participating in a community service event, donating blood, or participating in intramural sports. In addition, residence halls have the opportunity to earn points for environmentally responsible behaviors such as recycling and conserving energy.

A series of awesome prizes are awarded regularly over the course of the competition. Participants in Pioneer Cup events have the chance to win prizes for each Pioneer Cup activity or event in which they participate. And, the student leadership team of the winning residence hall each month receives a pizza party and recognition for their hard work.

The Pioneer Cup is a joint-program of the Center for Civic Engagement and Residential Life. It is managed by a Steering Committee with representatives from each of the participating departments. A student Civic Engagement Advocate also serves on the committee and coordinates the program throughout the year.
