The Eventzee scavenger hunt app is the perfect tool for allowing students to interact with school activities from the comfort of their own smart devices. Whether they’re first-year students who need some guidance, or they’re returning to campus for the new semester, everyone can join in the fun. By using the Eventzee app, you can show students around campus, announce homecoming activities, teach them school history, and more!
The Eventzee team realizes that planning an event can be daunting, so here are a few ideas to get you off and running!
Large campuses can be tough to navigate, especially for new students. Eventzee’s map feature allows you to guide students to various locations throughout your campus, allowing them to explore in a structured way. For students who might already think they know the lay of the land, this can be a great tool to show them places they may have never been before!
Using Eventzee, students can scan QR codes hidden at certain locations around campus to “check in” and receive points for each location they hit.
In recognition of the fact that some students might not be back to campus just quite yet, they can still participate in the fun from home! Tufts University used Eventzee’s scavenger hunt app during their spring reunion week, where the tasks could have easily been completed from home.
For example, one task remarks on a special landmark of Tufts University’s campus, but asks players to submit a picture with a local landmark to their own communities. Participation doesn’t always have to be on location!
DIVE INTO CAMPUS HISTORY
Who walked these paths before this current class of students? Every school has a rich history, whether big or small, waiting to be uncovered. Use the Eventzee scavenger hunt app to guide students to specific points on the campus. Are there fountains or statues of important figures? Who are the buildings named after? Where is the cafeteria? Where is the library?
Test student knowledge by including quiz questions here, or they can just pose for a picture with the landmark and submit it for points.
Are any of the players “too cool for school”? Utilize the Eventzee scavenger hunt to get them engaged in school spirit!
Have them submit pictures, either individually or in teams, of them posing with the school mascot, showing off their best SWAG outfits, repping the school colors, and more. If students are playing in teams, ask them to create a school cheer and submit a video of themselves performing it!
In a recent event hosted through the Eventzee scavenger hunt app, Lehigh Carbon Community College tasked the students with creating a 15-30 second commercial for their college using video challenges. Among the other scavenger hunt challenges, students got to write, direct and perform in their own commercial that showcased how much they love their college.
FIND ALL THAT’S OFFERED
Students, both new and returning, tend to not know everything that their school has to offer. Whether it be majors, classes to take, or clubs and sports to join, there’s always something new and exciting to be discovered.
Students can check in to open houses that clubs and sports are hosting, post pictures of themselves participating in activities, and more to earn points.
GIVEAWAYS, GIVEAWAYS, GIVEAWAYS!
The best way to get your students excited to participate in a scavenger hunt is to offer an awesome prize for the winner, or for everyone who participates! While the prize doesn’t have to be anything big, awesome prizes could include school SWAG, campus bookstore gift cards, small tech items, and more!
