Opening ceremonies for the sixth annual USciences Olympics begin Tuesday, Jan. 14 at 6:30 p.m. The event is an opportunity for existing student organizations, as well as newly formed teams, to participate in 13 different competitions over a 45-day period.
 
Testing their skills in everything from ultimate Frisbee and soccer to rifle shooting and Trivial Pursuit, students, faculty and alumni alike relish this chance to share their pride and spirit in being a part of the University of the Sciences community.
 
Each event is concluded with the presentation of Gold ($100), Silver ($75), and Bronze ($50) Awards to the top three finishers – valuable prize money that goes toward each team’s respective organization. Providing year-long recognition, the coveted overall gold medal winner will be announced at the closing ceremony on Feb. 27.
 
The USciences Olympics are brought to you by the Student Government Association’s (SGA) Spirit Committee. For questions or information regarding this event, contact Patty O’Hagan at p.ohagan@usciences.edu.
