Upcoming Event:

University of Redlands Staff and Administrators Assembly (URSAA) invites you to participate in our upcoming University Spirit Days on September 24 & 25.

Please join us Thursday, September 24 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm on the lawn in front of University Hall for obstacle course/relay races, followed by an ice cream social inside University Hall.

On Friday, September 25, we invite you to participate in a campus-wide scavenger hunt. You can complete the hunt any time between 9:00 am and 3:00 pm, and locating clues should only take about 20 minutes. Follow the clues at select locations around campus and solve a riddle at each location to discover where to go next. At the end of the hunt put all of the clues together to determine the Scavenger Hunt Phrase. Once you have figured out the phrase, complete the attached form and submit it to Alex Irigoyen in ITS at the Willis Center or email it to ursaa@redlands.edu by 3:00 pm.


 First Clue: Visit these beautiful, large green letters that spell out the name of our city in order to find additional letters to solve this hidden message.


There will be a prize for the first 50 fully completed forms. URSAA will randomly pick a winner from all the completed forms that were turned in by 3:00 p.m. for the grand prize, which is an IPad Mini 2*! The grand prize winner will be announced at the Friday @ 4 event!**

We encourage you to wear your U of R attire and show your pride on Spirit Days. If you have a meeting with the public please consult with your supervisor regarding wearing U of R attire.
