The PBA Way

Experience Welcome Week

Welcome Week has an energy all its own, and it will mark the beginning of your journey as a PBA student.

Sailfish Cup

One of PBA's oldest traditions, Sailfish Cup is a weekend of competitions between the residence halls. Competitions vary from basketball, soccer, dodgeball, longboard races, theatrical skits, board games, video games and more – creating an opportunity for everyone to join the weekend's activities and compete for the Cup!
