Scav Hunt 2012 in pictures
The much-beloved campus tradition of Scav Hunt returned May 9-13, a year after setting a Guinness World Record as largest scavenger hunt. This year's Scav Hunt list included 351 items as well as a nine-event Scav Olympics competition.
Some of this year's more intriguing items:
- #25: For the ﬁrst time in over 20 years, Chicago has a new mayor. It’s an election year, and it’s about time another tired symbol of the old regime also fell: mustard. At noon on Friday, go to Hot Doug’s dressed as the condiment of your choice. Distribute literature and try to convince the people of your worth. Disparaging rival condiments is encouraged.
- #71: A rabbit made of grass? A lion made of wildebeest meat? Create a sculpture of a chordate from its food source.
- #165: Side mullet. Business on the left, party on the right.
- #207: Plenty of movies have a scene where the entire village sings about a main character behind his back, and when he turns around everyone has to disperse and start muttering about 10 o’clock lunch appointments and things like that. Stage your musical number, lasting at least a minute, behind a professor as he walks to class, only to disperse when he turns around.
Snell-Hitchcock took first place, besting Burton-Judson, the team that in 2010 ended Snitchcock's four-year reign as champions.
