  • Custom for your campus – ask about including challenges specific to your school
  • Live leaderboard – keeps students competitive for the whole activity
  • Fits your timeline – adapt the activity to run for as long as you need it

Students start out by breaking up into teams. Each team will need one smartphone to download the team building app from the Apple App or Google Play store.

When it’s time to start, teams sign into the activity to start completing challenges around campus. For every challenge that teams complete correctly, they will earn points to move up the live leaderboard. Whichever team earns the most points before running out of time will be declared the Campus Goose Chase champions.

Some teaser missions to give you an idea of what to expect

 Find an issue of the student newspaper and take a picture of your team reading it.

Your student newspaper is an important source of information about what is happening on your campus. This challenge can help participants learn where to locate the newspaper, and also give them a chance to take a look at what kind of content is available inside.

Go to the campus bookstore, and take a picture of your team holding up textbooks relating to their majors.

This challenge helps accomplish two things. First, participants will learn exactly where the campus bookstore is located. Second, when participants are searching for textbooks relating to their majors, they will naturally get to know each better and start conversations based on their mutual interests.

 Photograph your team showing their school spirit, with someone who is wearing a branded school t-shirt or sweater.

It’s always important for students to feel a sense of school spirit and community when they start at a new school. Locating and speaking with an experienced student who is wearing a branded t-shirt or sweater helps reinforce the brand of your school, and gets students who are not involved in the scavenger hunt excited and participating as well.

Great fun, well organized, easy-to-use tool. Everyone was very friendly, and responsive. ”

– DeVry University

Though some participants were skeptical at first, everyone ended up having an amazing time and are already hoping to do another event like this in the future. Other organizations on campus were also interested in the program and I would be more than willing to give them your information! Thank you so much for such an amazing and rewarding activity; it put a smile on so many faces. ”

Outstanding service, the event went off without any glitches. Our goose chase event is used for new student orientation on an urban college campus. The event is fun, interactive, and met all of our objectives. Three years in a row, we’ve received consistently outstanding service. Staff are easy to reach via email and phone, and very responsive to requests. ”
