Libraries and Residence Hall Association Collaborate on Orange Quest
Syracuse University Libraries and the Residence Hall Association (RHA) are collaborating on an interactive virtual treasure hunt, called Orange Quest, for students living on campus. Orange Quest will kickoff on Nov. 5 and run through Saturday, Nov. 14, at midnight. Registration is required, preferably by Nov. 4, but at any time during the Quest.
Orange Quest is a fun, interactive game that will test students’ knowledge of University history, campus landmarks and research prowess at the Libraries. Students are encouraged to team up with two or three friends and compete against other student teams.
Winners can receive a pizza party for their team (maximum number of people on a team is four) or an RHA t-shirt. Game rules will be released to participants at the live launch on Nov. 5. A recording will be sent to those unable to attend the live launch. Participants need access to a computer or smartphone technology and, for some questions, may need to travel to public areas limited to North Campus. Physical distancing and mask-wearing are required at all times.
Questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
