Eastern's Dean's Cup raised $2,500 for the Willimantic Teen Center this year. The Dean's Cup is an annual competition between 12 residence halls, with each hall given the opportunity to display their commitment to personal and academic success along with hall and school spirit.
Residence halls conduct approximately 50 events throughout the course of the academic year, as part of the Dean's Cup. The residence hall with the most points at the end of the competition is awarded the Dean's Cup. This year, Constitution Hall walked off with top honors. Events throughout the year included Arts and Lecture series, University Hour lectures, blood drives and an energy conservation contest. Other factors considered in determining the winning residence hall include the residence hall with the highest community service participation, highest cumulative GPA and athletic competitions. Since the Dean's Cup competition began, residence halls have raised $12,600 for Willimantic community agencies.
