UChicago College Admissions
Scav 2012
This year’s list is finally out! As UChicago descends into beautiful chaos, we present you with some of our favorite items:

At the statue of Pocahontas, Buddy Holly sings with all the voices of the mountains. [5 points]
You have one (1) minute to get a team member from their underwear to fully dressed. The team member cannot move, and all you have are as many helpers as you can use and some buckets of paint. GO! [12 points]
Hershey’s French Kisses. [1 point]
Release a pack of zombies at Cobb during the break between classes on Friday at 11:50 a.m. [Up to 4 points per convincing zombie, maximum 5 zombies.]
At every public event, one of your team captains must have increasingly ornate headwear. Headwear must be built upon the same base item throughout the hunt. [24 points]
Side mullet. Business on the left, party on the right. [7 points]
As tweens in the Oughts, our first experience with the Greek Chorus was animated Lizzie McGuire. But that show never reenacted the Greek tragedies appropriate for its format! Film up to two minutes of The Very Special Episode: Lizzie McGuire does Medea. [8 points]
Up at the Law School they work all day. Out in the sun they slave away. Couldn’t they use the distraction of mermaids in their fountain? [8 points]
A professor, in academic gowns, over a steam vent, `a la Marilyn. Bonus points if the panties match Marilyn’s. [12 points]
Write an original polyglot emordnilap. [6 points]
The appropriate music video for “I’m Bringing Skeksi Back”. [6 points]
Your appendix, in a jar, at Judgment. [34 points]
