The Deans' Cup and the Collegiate Learning Assessment (CLA)

Each Spring semester, the College Deans recruit graduating seniors from their colleges to take the CLA exam as part of an academic competition known as the "Deans' Cup."  The winning team - the one with the highest average score - wins a trophy for their College and bragging rights.  The high scorer on each College team wins $100, and the overall high scorer wins the grand prize of $500.

The current College champion is the College of Agriculture.  The grand prize winner last year was Isuara Godinez de Espinoza, Anthropology major of the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences. Isuara received $500!
