All students who are looking at our upper class housing as an option for next year are invited to tour the Student Apartments, Johnson Hall and Casa communities on Saturday, Feb. 28.  Tours will be available at 12:30 p.m., 1:15 p.m. and 2:00 p.m. and will depart from the Office of Residence Life located in Community Building 1 of the student apartments.

Topper Pride = Topper Cup!

As Homecoming approaches, the campus will be showered with Topper Pride. Students, get your teams ready for a week filled with spirit-boosting events that compete for the Topper Cup trophy. The competitions include:

  • Cardboard Regatta
  • Dodgeball Tournament
  • Board Painting Contest

How to Compete for the Topper Cup Trophy:

Teams will compete in a series of events and earn points based on performance. The winning team from each event will receive their award at the Homecoming Tailgate at the end of the week, and the overall winning team will take home the coveted Topper Cup for Homecoming 2015!

Forming a Topper Cup Team:

Any student or group of students will be eligible to compete on a Homecoming team. Student organizations, residence hall groups, and all spirited groups of students are encouraged to create a team!

Any student without a team can sign up as a free agent and Student Life will connect the student with a team.

Team registration information will be coming soon! Please visit or Homecoming Collegiate Link page for more information.
