The Academic Olympics is an annual event organized by the Student Success Unit (SSU). This is part of the University's vision of leadership and excellence and it aims at promoting students academic skills through extra-curricular activities. This, in turn, increases happiness, retention, and motivation and helps building the character of university students.
Each section in SSU organizes fun competitions in its domain where students compete
using their academic knowledge. Eliminations of groups are done over several weeks
and all finales happen on the Academic Olympics day.
Some example of competitions:

At the end of the Academic Olympics day, a reward ceremony takes place where the winners
are rewarded with gifts and certificates.
