Scavenger hunt to help students access resources, supports before exams

With exams just around the corner, an end-of-term activity is guiding Brock students to helpful resources and supports on campus.

During BU4U Week from Monday, April 4 to Friday, April 8, a scavenger hunt will be held to encourage students to visit 11 locations across Brock’s main campus that provide information about health and wellness and academic tips for students to have a successful finish to the year. While visiting each of the student services locations, participants will take a selfie in front of a BU4U sign, which they can submit to ExperienceBU for a chance to win several prizes. They will also receive a free COVID-19 rapid test kit.

Each photo students take at a new location will be entered into a draw to win a grand prize that includes a Brock water bottle, mug, hat and sweatshirt, a cookbook and journal for self-exploration, and various gift cards, including one for $100 from the Campus Store. Additional smaller prizes will also be drawn, including individual Brock water bottles, hats and gift cards.

Participants are encouraged to download the BU4U Scavenger Hunt Template for a list of locations to visit. Offices will be open to scavenger hunt participants from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. from Monday, April 4 to Friday, April 8 with some locations closed from noon to 1 p.m. Photos can then be submitted via an online form before Monday, April 11 at noon.

Tanya Bradley, Brock’s Manager of Student Engagement, said BU4U Week was designed to connect students with resources across campus to support them personally and academically during exams. She hopes students will use the scavenger hunt as an opportunity to expand their knowledge of the University’s many student-centred resources.

“Through BU4U Week, we hope to connect students to the many services and resources available to support their success and wellness during this time,” Bradley said. “Not only will students receive helpful tips for their exams and have the opportunity to win prizes, they’ll also have the opportunity to build connections with staff and students across campus who can’t wait to meet them.”

As students prepare to wrap up the semester, Bradley said she’s been encouraged by campus partners who are eager and ready to provide support.

“It’s been wonderful to see student services staff from across the University come together to show Brock students that we are here for them as they prepare for their exams,” she said.
