Captains Madness

To mark the launch of the Defining Significance campaign, we invite you to rally your classmates for a friendly social media tournament open to all Christopher Newport alumni. The goal is to score as many points as you can between March 19 – April 8 by engaging with us in various ways on social media. All team members’ scores will be tallied, and the team with the most points wins! All participants on the winning team will be entered in a raffle to win a fabulous grand prize – AN iPAD!

Here are the teams


  • Classes of 1961-79
  • Classes of 1980-89
  • Classes of 1990-99
  • Classes of 2000-13

Additional scoring chances to be announced


Scoring will be retroactive to the campaign launch on February 28 where noted, and will run through 5 p.m. April 8. Points are weighted based on number of alumni in each decade, so each team has the same chance at winning; however, the team that stays engaged throughout the tournament and gets the most Captains involved has the best chance to win!

Scores will be updated March 19, 24, 28, 31, April 7 and 8. The winning team will be announced on April 11, with the grand prize drawing to follow. So, get your crew together and have them join you in tweeting, liking and sharing your way to the top!

When you ask people to give you their very best,
they will astound you with their success
