19981 Scavenger Hunt - Sections 3 & 6

Name:_______________________________________     Section Number:____________________

This scavenger hunt is designed to familiarize you first hand with some of the resources available to you on campus. You may work alone in completing this, or travel around campus with a partner. , i.e., each of you must turn in a completed form. For each resource, there is a question you must answer and one or more signatures to obtain, so you'll need to ask some questions or pick up literature (then read it) at each location. Bring this completed form to me on or before our First Year Seminar class of Tuesday, September 29, 1998.
