Ever hear of Geocaching? Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. We'll have 10 spots located on campus. Feel free to trade knickknacks with other geocachers! Learn more now. Don't worry – we'll leave them out there for you to find if you can't nab them all right away.
At noon in the Hazel Center cafeteria, come check out an awesome show! Eh440 is an acapella group that was named the #1 touring act of 2015 by Campus Activities Magazine. Between them, they have released CDs that have topped the charts, been certified cold, toured world-wide, and recently appeared on the hit show Dragon’s Den (Canada’s version of Shark Tank) and got a deal! They were on of the top acts booked at the NACA National Convention. Eh is pronounced the Canadian way (like the first letter of the alphabet) and then the number 4 and then the number 40. Check out their video Died on the Table.
