Participants will be placed into teams:

  • First-year Team
  • Second-Year Team
  • Third-Year Team
  • Study Abroad Team

Spirit Week will be held in various locations across campus and Prague and conclude in our favorite spot – Shooter Island. Events and challenges are open to the whole community so whether you’re fighting for the title of “Best Year” or cheering on the sidelines, all are welcome to participate and enjoy!

How to participate:

Teams will be awarded at least 5 points per each competition they participate in, but can receive more points in a competition depending on what place they finish in (first place, second place, etc.) Points can also be more or less depending on how many teams enter each competition so grab points where you can! For example, if the first-year students win the Rubik’s Cube competition but only three of the teams compete in it, then they will receive 15 points (1st place: 15 points, 2nd place: 10 points, 3rd place: 5 points). If only two teams compete in it, then they will receive 10 points (1st place: 10 points, 2nd place: 5 points). The team with the most points at the end of the week will win this semester’s Spirit Week and receive a delicious pizza party prize.

The winners will be announced during the Spring Music & Arts Festival on Saturday, April 22, on Shooters’ Island.

Students can sign up to participate in, or attend events, here.
