Another new addition to the Homecoming events schedule this year is a University wide scavenger hunt. This event is no normal scavenger hunt, however! It is much more than just a search for random objects. It is an exciting and unique activity that combines trivia, a treasure hunt and fun challenges around campus! The event will let teams of University of Minnesota students, staff and alumni explore the campus and help celebrate an additional day of Homecoming this year, as the scavenger hunt will take place on Sunday, October 4th.
The inspiration for the scavenger hunt came from the University of Wisconsin- Madison's "Homecoming Quest" along with various other fun events like game shows, childhood activities and local urban adventure races. With so much variety, all participants should experience different aspects of the University and have fun getting The Ultimate Homecoming off to an exciting start.
