|Scavenger Hunt||With a shopping list of shots and a brand new bunch of bosom buddies you will race against other teams to take as many of the pictures from the list as you can around campus!
Slap them on social media with the right #hashtags to make them count and with any luck you’ll be bagging that booty for your very own.
DISCLAIMER: okay not everyone can win a prize….
But you WILL make new friends from your academic schools in this fast paced Scavenger Hunt around our beautiful campus.
Sign up, meet us in Eliot, get a team and get shooting!
We can’t wait to see you there!
