Want to find out if you really are smarter than everyone else on campus? Want to test your mental abilities against your fellow classmates, professors and staff members? Want to see if your team, club, fraternity or sorority has a better “brain game” than the rest?
If you marked the “yes” answer to any of these questions, then join us for the “Great Minds on the Green” celebration from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 24, on the University Green. The event will include Seton Hall trivia competitions, brain games, branded giveaways, a photo booth and much more.
The competitions are open to individuals as well as teams of up to four members. Teams can include groups of students, faculty members and staff as well as members of fraternities, sororities, athletic teams, clubs and organizations. Winners will receive gift cards and “Great Minds” gear.
Inspired by Seton Hall’s new “What Great Minds Can Do” branding campaign and in partnership with the Petersheim Academic Exposition, the Office of Public Relations and Marketing is hosting the “Great Minds on the Green” celebration as a fun way for students, faculty and staff to demonstrate their mental acumen.
“We want to make the Seton Hall community aware of the vast array of great minds we have on campus who are making a positive impact on the world through their research, scholarship and service,” explains Dan Kalmanson, associate vice president of Public Relations and Marketing. “This event is an excellent opportunity for our students, faculty and staff to show the rest of the campus how smart they really are by taking part in challenging intellectual competitions.”
“Great Minds on the Green” will feature individual and team competitions including brain puzzles, Rubik’s cube races and Seton Hall trivia. In addition, attendees can nominate a student, faculty or staff member to be featured as a “Great Mind of the Week” on the University’s website. Groups of students, faculty and staff can also be nominated. The winner will receive a “Great Minds” prize package that includes a $50 gift card.
You can sign up online for either individual or team competitions as well as to nominate a “Great Mind of the Week,” or at the “Great Minds” tent on the Green. Space is limited so sign up early. The rain date will take place on Thursday, April 25, from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on the Green.
