Kin Cup is an annual event where the undergrads engage in an epic battle of basketball, dodgeball and soccer against the grad students and faculty. For students, it’s a great way to take a break from studying for exams or to blow off some steam after exams (especially since you will be playing against the profs who wrote your exams!). For faculty, it’s a perfect opportunity to reduce your sedentary time and spend some time with your beloved undergrads.
The undergrads have won 6 years in a row. Undergrads – get that 7th win this year! Grads and faculty – wouldn’t you like to see that streak end? Come out to play some sports and have a good time with your fellow BPK-ers!
The Kin Games team will also be present collecting gently used sports equipment & monetary donations for Jumpstart Kids!
