UNLV Welcome Weeks Scavenger Hunt

By skennedy on August 15, 2018 12:41 PM | Permalink

From August 28-30, the UNLV Welcome Weeks Scavenger Hunt 2018 will introduce you to all of our resources, jump starting your success in the fall semester! From the ASC to Lied Library and everywhere in between, the scavenger hunt is an opportunity to check out our locations, receive a prize at each stop, and be in the running to receive one of our grand prizes.

This all leads up to our Pre-Premier Party on Thursday, August 30 from 3-5 p.m. where students can socialize, eat, relax, and win more prizes! Grand prize winners will be announced at this event. Scavenger Hunt participants will be entered into the drawing first, and will have a higher chance of winning prizes.

Scavenger Hunt Guidelines

There will be four stops for this year’s scavenger hunt, all of which will introduce you to University Libraries and ASC resources. At each stop, you will receive a complimentary prize and a stamp. 4 stamps will put you in the running to receive one of our grand prizes. Grand prize winners will be announced out at our Pre-Premier Party!

  • Academic Success Center - Claude I. Howard Building (ASC)
  • The Coaching Spot, SSC-A 254 (Building directly across from the ASC on the 2nd floor).
  • University Libraries Circulation Desk - 1st floor (Lied Library)
  • University Libraries Research Help Desk - 1st floor (Lied Library)

After completing your stamp card, turn it into the ASC or UNLV Libraries to be entered in the raffle for the grand prize!

*Scavenger Hunt stamp cards can be picked up at any of the locations listed above.
