They were given a laminated map of our campus and a scavenger hunt list of instructions on w她的e they had to go. My favorite part was how some groups got really into the challenge and were sprinting from one place to the ot她的 but also staying toget她的 as a team with people that they had met less than 12 hours ago. Having students who live locally meet ot她的 students who live nearby but attend anot她的 local school is great!”
