Friendship Games

Friendship Games began in 1985 and features over 40 Pilipino 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.

The very first champion of the picnic games, Kasama, hailed from Mt. San Antonio College.

Twenty-eight years later, Friendship Games has become the highlight event of the Filipino American college life. Is your organization going to take home the famous 8-foot trophy this year?
