@LU_SPAD Frosh Scavenger Hunt

On November 24th, SPAD Council hosted the annual Frosh Scavenger Hunt. The event, much like every year, signifies the end of Dr. Pegoraro’s first year Colloquia class. The scavenger hunt is always a great way to bring the frosh class together, and test their SPAD knowledge!

The class was divided into 10 groups, with each team being assigned to a council member. Given the size of this year’s frosh class, Russ Lavis was needed to fill in as the final the group leader. A draft was held to determine each team. Council President, Sean Meyers, did a great job of finding embarrassing Facebook photos for the draft slideshow; no frosh or council member was safe!

The scavenger hunt is a test based on what the frosh class has learned in their first three months at Laurentian. The list features a number of questions and challenges, which requires each student to think on their feet. Many of the questions are based on general SPAD trivia, putting the frosh’s knowledge of SPAD history to the test. The class was even tested on how well they knew the SPAD council members, and their hometowns! Some challenges also required groups to find some of Laurentian’s most notable landmarks, such as the Ghandi statue outside of the library. Other challenges were slightly more complicated, and had higher point values because of it.

Teams had roughly two hours to complete as many tasks as possible. After the time limit was reached, everyone returned to class for the final point tally. It was a very tight race, but in the end, Second Year Representative Evan Kwan’s team took the competition! Moreover, no one went home on an empty stomach, as Dr. Pegoraro ordered some delicious Toppers Pizza for the entire class!

As always, the Frosh Scavenger Hunt is a fun and exciting way to end Dr. Pegoraro’s Colloquia class. The event offers students a chance to bond with each other and council, as well as offer a bit of fun before the stressful exam period. SPAD Council would like to thank all of the first year students for being good sports throughout the evening and hope everyone had as much fun as we did. Best of luck to all of the frosh during their first University exam period, study hard!
