Location Clues to be Announced



Homecoming Scavenger Hunt Details

Participate in our new homecoming event on your own time. Find different locations throughout Marquette by following hints (to be announced below* and on Instagram @nmu_specialevents). Each location will have a QR code which can be scanned via the hub. The first five people to visit and scan in to all locations will win a homecoming prize pack. Each location also has a pick one point attatched, so even if you don't win a homecoming prize pack you still have the opportunity to get involved and win prizes!

Rules/Important Notes

  • You must scan into a QR code (if you think you've found a location and the QR code isn't there please DM or email Special Events and take a picture to show at the Center for Student Enrichment office for potential points)
  • Some locations are on campus and some are off campus (these are noted in the hints). However, all locations are in Marquette. 
  • Be respectful of property! All QR codes will be easily accessible at the locations (they won't be hidden on a tree in the woods). 
  • We will contact you if you are one of the five people to receive a homecoming prize pack!

Thank you for participating -- go with friends, and have fun exploring!
