The CASA CUP is a new initiative that aims to foster a sense of community and increase student engagement. Participating JMSB students will be placed into one of five different Houses, made up of a mix of students in different majors and years and led by House Heads. This is your chance to meet new people and participate in a competition to gain points to win prizes by attending FREE events and completing bi-weekly challenges.
Earn points on an individual basis to win prizes from the CASA Cooler! Points will also be tracked for each House. Stay tuned for more information about the GRAND PRIZE at the end of the year!
How to gain points?
• Attend eligible Subsidiary events during Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 semesters.
• Complete bi-weekly challenges with your Housemates.
Once registered, participants will be placed into a House. Private Facebook groups will be set up for each House to facilitate communication.
Once a month, the CASA Cooler will be unlocked for 24 hours. Use the individual points you’ve earned by attending events and completing challenges to purchase prizes. These prizes will be limited in quantity and change every month. Once the cooler is emptied or the 24 hours runs out, the cooler will lock itself until the following month.
