International Games Week & Scavenger Hunt: October 30th – November 3rd

Tech Law Students,


Each year, libraries across the world give back to their patrons by providing games and activities for a week of fun. Many libraries provide lengthy card, board, and video game tournaments for their patrons over the week, but we understand that law students have strict constraints on their free time. As a result, we’ve developed a fun, law-related activity that will test your research ability without taking too much of your time: a scavenger hunt with a grand prize of a $25 Amazon gift card!

Starting on Monday, October 30th, you may choose one of three paths to follow across all three floors of the library. Each path has been tested by students and will take no longer than 20 minutes to complete.

SignIncluding the ones available from the information desk, each path has four clues. To have your name entered in the prize drawing, you must take a picture of the solution to the fourth clue and email it to or present it to Professor Drake in office 126ba. If your picture is correct, then we will enter your name in the drawing.

Additionally, you can increase your odds of winning by entering your name into the drawing a second and even third time by finishing the other two paths. Finally, if a clue has you stumped you aren’t out of the running. You may ask circulation staff to get the librarian on call to help you figure out where to look next.

The starting clues for each path will be available from the right side of the circulation desk starting Monday, October 30th.
