DePaul's annual Gnome Hunt returns next month

DePaul's sixth annual Gnome Hunt will take place April 17-21. Student organizations and DePaul offices can adopt a gnome to decorate, name and provide with a backstory. Sign-ups are now underway and continue through April 5 at the Office of Student Involvement (LPSC 201) and the Loop Life Office (1st Floor in the DePaul Center).

The week of the hunt, gnomes will be hidden around the Lincoln Park and Loop campuses. Pictures and location clues will be shared on the Office of Student Involvement’s social media for DePaul folks who choose to take part.

OSI also encourages Blue Demons to post a fun picture of their gnome and its backstory with the hashtag #DePaulGnomeHunt between April 10-14.

Organizations that joined the Gnome Hunt last year are welcome to return, either reusing last year's Gnome or creating a new one.

More information is online about this fun campus tradition. To sponsor a gnome or to ask any questions, contact Alex Brown.
