The Office of Community Relations, together with the Center for Student Engagement, SBDC and several community partners, will convene a Downtown Scavenger Hunt on Sept. 2 as part of Fall Welcome Week. This fun, interactive orientation to downtown and introduction to First Friday is open to all students.
Team Up in Groups of 2 to Explore Downtown Scranton!
Free T-Shirts to the first 150 Students!
Win Major Prizes!
Registration begins at 3:30 p.m. on DeNaples Patio. The Scavenger Hunt will run from 4-5:30 p.m. throughout downtown, ending with an Award Reception at 5:30 at the Vintage Theater (119 Penn Ave.).
The team to visit the most locations in 90 minutes will win a $200 Gift Certificate to the Mall at Steamtown. Other great prizes will be awarded, including 2 free tickets to In The Heights performed by Broadway Theatre League at the Scranton Cultural Center. Free T-shirts will be distributed to the first 150 students.
How it Works: Use Foursquare to find the clue or ask for it at the venue. Find the University’s mascot Iggy, take a picture, and pick up your treasure.
The Award Reception will feature free food and live music with Rooks – the winner of the USPB 2011 Battle of the Bands. The event will lead into First Friday in downtown Scranton…and then don’t miss the Late Night Welcome Back Party on campus at 9 p.m.!
