- Every beginning of each semester, it is a common tradition that USPSA-EC hosts a church service followed by a USPSA-EC social to officially welcome returning and first-time students to Emalus campus. Likewise, a gathering is held at the end of each semester to say goodbye to graduating students and to seek blessings for exams and the holiday season.
- In between these fixed activities, it is up to each USPSA-EC council to decide what activities that should be included in their yearly calendar of events.
- The annual “USPSA-EC PASIFIKA FEST” allows students to showcase their cultures and traditions. The rule of the Miss USPSA-EC PASIFIKA FEST pageant is that contestants may not be female.
- Open day is perhaps the major highlight of every year for the students. It’s when students get a rare opportunity to showcase their traditions and culture and to display what the law school stands for, through mooting competitions and other means.
