Carnival on the quad – move-in day, August 18; 10:30 am – 4:00 pm

After you get settled in your room, or if you arrive early for your scheduled move-in shift, or if you are a commuter student, come join us on the quad for some fun games and just enjoying the fresh air and the beauty around you.  Students earn individual points for playing games, and when they win, they will receive a random number of tickets to place in their team bucket. Each ticket is worth 5 points, so the more you play, the more you win!

Spike’s Super Special Scavenger Hunt (Wed 10:30 am – Sat at 5:00 p.m.)

You can earn points for you and your team toward the College Cup by finding and doing special things that help you get familiar with campus and help you start making memories right away.  Find a friend or two and see how much of the list you can accomplish throughout the week!  All recording of completed tasks must be timestamped by 5:00 pm Saturday to count toward point totals. Here’s your list.  Go forth and collect photos and memories.
