Scavenger Hunt Results

Twenty-two teams raced around the West Bank, East Bank and St. Paul campus on Sunday. You might have seen them packed in the Campus Connectors! They were competing in Goldy's Ultimate Challenge. The teams were completing tasks, taking pictures, finding treasures and answering trivia questions.

The top six teams were awarded prizes. The first place team, comprised of the 2009 Homecoming Queen candidates, won $50 gift cards to Mesa Pizza and free bowling. Full results are listed below.
