The Hunt

Bring Home the Golden Eagle Trophy

The Hunt

Join The Hunt to win the Golden Eagle trophy for your community!

Throughout the year, Concordia students participate in a series of spirit days, events, activities, and intramural sports to earn points for their team. At the end of the year, you’ll get to compete in The Hunter Games to gain the ultimate prize of the Golden Eagle trophy!

Here’s How It Works

Your Teammates Are Your Neighbors

Students are divided into four teams based on where they live: Rho, Sigma, Quads, and Commuters. Team up with your neighbors and bring out your school pride to get your team’s flag flying high and proud on campus!

Spirit Days Are Called Prey Days

These are the days you and your team will be on the hunt for prey. You can gain points for wearing your Hunt shirt on Prey Days, winning an intramural championship, having the highest cumulative GPA, winning large event competitions, finding the egg, and turning in stamp cards.

Find the Golden Egg

During the first week of school, a golden egg is hidden on campus. Find the egg to earn points for your team and then hide it somewhere new for another team to find!

Stamp Cards Get You Points and Free Swag

Earn stamps for every athletic event you attend throughout the year and turn in your stamp cards to earn points for your team and win free swag. Prizes include hats, blankets, tote bags, shirts, jackets, and more. The more stamps you collect, the better the prize!

Flight Club Student Section

In 2021, students voted to rename the CUI student section to Flight Club. The first rule of Flight Club is you always talk about Flight Club! Flight Club gets loud and rowdy at every CUI home game to support our Golden Eagles!
