UH WOW Scavenger Hunt

“UH WOW 2013″ – A Campus–Wide Search for Pride

Welcome to the 2013 UH Weeks of Welcome Scavenger Hunt. As part of this campus-wide search for pride, you will learn more about a few UH traditions, discover some of the unique offerings at UH, become more familiar with campus, and hopefully make some new friends along the way. This hunt is not meant to be competitive, so there is no need for you to be the first to complete all task. However, you must complete all tasks to qualify for the three prize drawings, which include a chance to win either an IPAD 3, $300 Barnes & Noble Gift card or a UH Gift Pack (valued at $150). Rules related to your participation are listed below.
