A new tradition at the Forest has already taken hold. The Woodberry Cup challenges teams of both students and faculty to a year of competition in athletics, academics, arts, and service. The winning team claims the cup.
"It was a great opening week for the Woodberry Cup," said Henry Heil, Woodberry's Assistant Dean of Students and Director of Residential Life. "We had tremendous energy and enthusiasm from the entire community. The captains and commissioners all appreciate everyone's willingness to compete with a smile at such a busy time of the year."
The first activity, a food-packaging event for Stop Hunger Now, succeeded in packing 175,395 meals for hungry children around the world, while engaging the teams in friendly competition to see who could box the most meals. The second, a field day held on Grainger Field, involved members of the student body and faculty in games like piggy-back racing, dizzy bat, and tug-of-war.
