Friendship Games began in 1985 and features over 40 Pilipinx American Student organizations from college campuses representing California, Nevada and Arizona that participate in a day of friendly but competitive picnic games, performances and to celebrate “S.P.U.F” – Spirit, Pride, Unity, and Friendship. Schools compete for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place trophies. The school that shows the most S.P.U.F is awarded an 8 foot tall trophy.

This event takes place during the Fall Semester. There are different ways to get involved such as participating in Games, dancing in Roll Call, and cheering in SPUFs. You also have the opportunity to work with the prop committee to create objects that pertain to this year’s theme.

If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact our Activities Co-Directors, Christian Bowker and Kahmala Gonzales at
