UF students could win big in scavenger hunt Wednesday

UF students have a chance to win front-row tickets to the Gator homecoming game in a campus-wide scavenger hunt. 

The University Athletic Association is hosting its first-ever #GatorRace from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m on Wednesday.  

Clues will be tweeted around 10:45 a.m. from the @GZStudents Twitter account.

After students solve each clue, they will arrive at a designated location and find a person holding a sign that reads #GatorRace. Students will have to tweet a picture of themselves at the location with the hashtag. 

The first students to complete all six tasks will win tickets to the Missouri game.  

“Students are a very important part to the game day experience for all of our venues and we hope this scavenger hunt gives students views of areas they may never have been,” wrote Alicia Longworth, an assistant athletic director in the marketing and promotions department for the UAA, in an email.

The first 40 students to arrive at each location and tweet the hashtag #GatorRace will receive small prizes.

Teams of up to four people are allowed to participate.

Matt Long, a 21-year-old UF telecommunication senior, said he plans on participating in the scavenger hunt.  

“It seems fun, and I’d love to win front-row tickets to the homecoming game,” he said.
