UChicago Boston Scav Hunt

The University of Chicago Scavenger Hunt is a springtime tradition dating back to 1987. But you don’t have to travel to Chicago to join in the spirit of Scav Hunt!


The Boston Scav Hunt will have a mix of challenges that will help you get better acquainted with nearby neighborhoods, tap into your knowledge of UChicago and greater Boston, and many other items that must be built, performed, written, programmed, drawn, eaten, designed, painted, solved, won, and (sometimes) endured.


The Scavenger Hunt will be based at the VFW George Dilboy Post in Davis Square, but many items on the list will send teams to explore the surrounding neighborhoods. Bring walking shoes!


You! And your friends, family (many items will be child-friendly!), neighbors, significant others, insignificant others, anyone and everyone. As long as you have 3-5 people working with you, you have a team! While we can’t resist a few in-jokes, the list will include items that will be clearly understood by non-UChicago alumni and children, so feel free to bring your non-UChicago buddies.

How do I register?
