Spirit Competition Participation Guidelines

The SAB spirit competition will be divided into two tiers: The Greek tier (Panhellenic Council, National Panhellenic Council, and Interfraternity Council) and the non-Greek RSO tier. The winner of each tier will win a pizza or ice-cream party for their organization.

Participation Guidelines

  • All organizations participating must be a Recognized Student Organization (RSO) or an approved university organization.
  • All organizations will be required to submit the Homecoming application stating their willingness to participate in Homecoming 2017 no later than September 11 at 5pm. (The application is available through the SAB OrgSync site under “forms.”) https://orgsync.com/44189/events/1970603/occurrences/4625164
  • Each organization must be in good standing with the University of Louisville as stated in the Recognized Student Organization manual.
  • Each organization must submit and updated roster (listing all current members) to the Orgsync Spirit Competition Registration Form.
  • In order to receive attendance points, each person must sign him/herself in. No member will be allowed to sign in other attendees for their organization. Any organization found in violation of these guidelines will not receive any attendance points for homecoming events.
  • Points will be tallied at the conclusion of all homecoming events.


If there are any questions concerning the rules and regulations of homecoming 2017, please contact Spirit & Traditions, at spirit@uoflsab.org. Failure to read and understand all of the rules will not be an excuse for the penalties resulting from violations of these rules and regulations.

Overall Point and Tier System

The overall Homecoming Spirit Competition will be judged on the enthusiasm and support that is displayed by those participating in the Homecoming events.

There are five events that offer points for attendance. Organizations will receive points based on the percentage of members in attendance at said events. Percentages will be translated into points. For example, if 20% of an organization’s registered members attend the events mentioned, then that organization will receive 20 out of the 100 available points.

Attendance Events

  • Crowns & Gowns: A Red Tie Affair
  • Wear Red to be Fed

  • Roller Skating

** Your organization will only receive points for the members that sign in.
