A core component to life in residence is the sense of community. Community building events encourage residents to exercise responsibility for their community and orient them to services, facilities, staff members and staff responsibilities. This sense of connectedness enhances student-student and student-staff relationships and contributes to feelings of pride and comfort within students.
The Residence Spirit Cup increases and fosters both residence-specific pride and campus-wide pride through friendly competition. Each Keele residence participates in a variety of events throughout the school year to earn points. Through participation and specific activities, Residence Life will calculate points at each event and award a Spirit Cup winner at the end of Winter semester.
The Residence Spirit Cup is done in collaboration with key campus partners and organizations such as Athletics and Recreation.
