Magellan Ten-Year Celebration

Magellan Ten Scavenger Hunt

OUR’s Magellan Programs just turned 10. That’s a big deal! Help us celebrate this major milestone—and win prizes—by taking part in the #Magellan10 Scavenger Hunt. Here’s how it works:

  • Beginning Monday, April 11, 2016 we will post one scavenger hunt prompt per day for ten weekdays leading up to Discovery Day on Friday, April 22, 2016. Prompts will be posted on Twitter and Facebook, but all entries must be submitted to our Twitter account, @Gamecock_OUR.
  • To participate, take a photo inspired by our daily #Magellan10 prompt and tweet it at us as fast as you can, with the dedicated hashtag, #Magellan10. The first tagged photo we receive that fits the day’s prompt will win a Magellan Programs t-shirt and an Office of Research tote bag!
  • All posts should have appropriate content in keeping with the USC conduct code and Carolinian Creed. Inappropriate posts will be removed.
  • Each daily winner will be entered in a drawing to win the grand prize: a $20 gift card for the Barnes & Noble Bookstore!

Don’t miss out on this chance to celebrate OUR’s Magellan Programs and win great prizes!
