Connect U 2019 winning team: The Whippersnappers (University Systems)

Congratulations to this year’s winning scavenger hunt team from University Systems: The Whippersnappers—Curtis Les, Rachel Grossman & Matt Bacon—who scored an amazing 74 points (out of a possible total of 94 points). And a big thanks to the marking team—Iona Hubner, Sarah Riecken, Christina Harris & Shailoo Bedi—who worked fast and under pressure to score the entire contest.

We had 25 teams and nearly 80 people competing in the 2019 Connect U Scavenger Hunt, including a number of people who have competed in each of the four years it has now run. Designed and organized by Fine Arts communications officer John Threlfall, the Scavenger Hunt has proven to be a perennially popular part of Connect U. Be sure to sign up next time!
