This icon will be hidden around campus this week.
Spirit Week 2013 concludes Thursday with music, food, costumes and pie.

As part of Spirit Week's final-day events, there will be a costume contest, pies and a photo booth from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., near the ice rink. The costume contest, beginning at 11:30 a.m., includes a chance to win two football tickets to Nebraska's game against Michigan State. Nominated UNMC personalities will also be hit with pies -- for a $1 entry, you could win a chance to "pie" the nominated person of your choice.

The Island Seasons food truck will be parked by the ice rink, accepting cash or credit cards.
