2018 Summer Scavenger Hunt



The Summer Arts Scavenger Hunt is a fun summer activity and a chance to win an Amazon Echo! All members of the U-M community are invited to play — faculty, students, staff, and friends!

We'll post a series of questions each Thursday from May to August in our Arts Info newsletter as well as on this page. All the answers can be found online, but some require the clever use of a search engine. Hold on to your answers each week and submit them to us at the end of the summer via the online form we provide in the August 30 issue of Arts Info.

Save your answers throughout the summer. At the end of the summer, we will post a Google Form for you to submit your answers through. Answers will be due by midnight on Sunday, September 2.
