Teams reminded to register

Employees are reminded to register teams for Friday's "Scavenger Hunt With a Twist," in which teams of three to five will collect clues around campus and bring them back to the events center, where they will open them to solve a word puzzle.

The hunt starts at 11:15 a.m. Register your team at unmcevents@unmc.edu by 5 p.m. on Thursday.

All week long

Also remember to keep an eye out for red UNMC icon cards. The cards will be placed at random spots around the campus throughout the week. If you find one, pick it up and bring it to the PR office on the third floor of the 4230 Building and get a T-shirt.

This week employees also can enjoy:

  • Free admission to the Center for Healthy Living (includes fitness classes); and
  • An office decoration push. Decorate your office area to show your UNMC spirit. Send photos to today@unmc.edu so they can be featured in the newsletter.
