Homecoming Point Breakdown

There are 2 types of points that can be awarded for Homecoming events, Attendance and Place.

Attendance Points

These points are awarded for designated events and are based on the percentage of members that attend the event. Each organization that registers will be required to submit a participate list of members who plan to participate in Homecoming events.  Participant list must include: first and last name and an islander e-mail address. If 2 organizations want to team up together, 1 registration needs to be completed for the group and 1 participant list needs to be submitted with all those participating. Check in for these events will ONLY be the first half hour of the event.

If greater than 50% of the participant list attends, the organization will receive 30 points.  If less than 50%, the organization will receive 15 points, and if no participants attend, the organization will not receive any points for that event.  An individual student cannot be on more than 2 participant lists. If a student is found to be on more than 2 participant lists, that student will not be counted at all. 

Participation & Place Points

Organizations will have the opportunity to gain points by participating in several activities and events. For some, points are only awarded for participating in the event, while at others, points are also awarded for placing first, second or third in that event. The organization that places first will receive 30 points, second place will receive 20 points, and third place will receive 10 points.

Bonus Points

Organizations have the opportunity to win bonus points for excellent attendance at Homecoming events. For events where organizations earn attendance points, organizations must have greater than 50% of their participant list attend to count toward the bonus. For events where organizations earn participation & place points, organizations only need to participate to count toward the bonus. There are 8 events that count toward the bonus and they are indicated below with a (B). The points that can be received from bonus are as follows:
8 out of 8 = 40 points
7 out of 8 = 30 points
6 out of 8 = 20 points
5 out of 8 = 10 points
