Residence Hall Prizes
The residence hall with the most points at the end of April will be declared the Pioneer Cup Champion. The champion will be recognized on the Pioneer Cup on display in the Student Leadership Center and earns the right to display the Pioneer Cup Champions plaque in the main entryway or common room. Thanks to generous support from Residential Life  and Student Senate , it will also receive $2,000 that it can use to plan a hall trip or purchase a new hall amenity (e.g., pool table, ping pong table, foosball table) selected by its Hall Council. In addition, all residents of the winning hall will receive Pioneer Cup Champions t-shirts and recognition in an end-of-year ceremony.
We will also award $1,000 to the residence hall that has the most points at the end of the fall semester.
To keep the excitement going throughout the year, we also give away great prizes each month! We raffle off prizes from area businesses soon after the end of each month. Since you get raffle tickets when you participate in Pioneer Cup activities, the more you do, the greater your chances of winning!
The prizes to be given away this year are listed below along with the winners. We add new prizes regularly so be sure to check back periodically.
