Spring Party

Spring Party - 05/26/2009

""

The "Spring Party" was a huge success, about 70 people (students, staff & faculty) showed up and everyone had fun! See below for some event pictures.

For the "Photo Scavenger Hunt" we had 10 two-members teams competing for the prizes and the bragging rights. Teams were given 15 clues which would reveal a building / location inside the west campus. They then had to go to the location and take a picture at as many locations as possible and return back within 1 hour. The top team got 13 / 15 right! The rest of the teams performed

Do you think you know UC better and will be able to solve all the clues? Check out the clues here. If you concede, here are the answers!
