What is the Battle of the Colleges?
A: Established in the Fall of 2016, the Battle of the Colleges was developed as an idea to increase student attendance and to build excitement around UCSC NCAA athletic events. By tracking attendance and school spirit, students earn points for their respective colleges.
How does it work?
At designated Battle of the Colleges events, student attendance is taken and broken down into which of the ten residential colleges the student is affiliated with. Points are then assigned at each event (10 points for the most, 9 for the second-most etc) and the end of the school, year, the college with the most points is deemed the winner.
The winning college gets the BOC trophy and a prize package to celebrate.
