Hey there! Welcome to the Glendon Tournament! 

Over the past weeks and months, the Glendon Tournament has provided a fun and friendly way to put your best skills forward, to hone your team-player qualities while competing in a series of games and challenges to win prizes and awards. One of the reasons many of you chose Glendon was for that personalized university experience and that small campus feel. 

This past year has been different from what we were used to, and the Glendon Tournament has been an outlet for many of you who missed that experience of campus life. It was also one of several online activities our staff and volunteer students created for you this year and we hope enjoyed it and will return to it next academic year. 

By popular demand, the Glendon Tournament will go on…Expect a new look on the website, new games and as always, more prizes! 

You’ve got this!              

Principal Marco Fiola

FAQ for future students who have received an offer to join Glendon

What is the Glendon Tournament?

To the best of our knowledge, the Glendon Tournament is the only activity of this kind in Canada. It was co-designed with students, faculty and staff to create a virtual space where students could play together, share and also win cool prizes. You can check some of the students’ testimonials below.

What kind of games do students play in the Tournament?

Students typically suggest the most popular games, and there are always new ones to be tried. Last academic year, for example, students played over 29 games, including “Mario Kart”, several photography contests, “8 Ball Pool”, “Subway Runner”, “Cut the Rope”, “Tik Tok dance competition”, singing competition, etc. Check out our video here to see examples of the games they played last year!

What kind of prizes could I win?

Prizes will include swag and gift cards with a maximum value of $50.

 

How does it work?

As a Glendon student, you can login onto e-class where you will find all your courses as well as the Glendon Tournament. You should also follow us on Instagram at @Glendontournament to join the other players and meet the Team Captains who will welcome you and answer your questions.

As a new student, you will be automatically assigned to one of the four teams and be able to play one or all of the games; the more you play, the greater your chances of winning a prize. As a senior student, you will need to register by following the link above.

Each game has its own rule. For example, you may need to upload a screenshot of your top score; the winner of the photography contest is selected by a vote from the players; etc. Typically, all you need is your phone, a connection…And some skill 😊
