Let’s Explore Hopkins With Selfies

Last week, the “Exec Boards” of the many Admissions groups got together and competed in a photo-scavenger hunt around campus.  If you follow @JHU_JackieR on Twitter, you may have seen a massive influx of random tweets with #JHUdarechallenge (may or may not have been my first time tweeting in a year…)  We had an hour to run all around campus and find these obscure places around Homewood – good thing we’re all tour guides and collectively knew all the fun facts, or else it could have ended very badly.  While my team might have ended in dead last place, we still had an absolute blast!

The beginning of our hunt!  Hopkins seal not too hard to find around campus..

The Undergraduate Teaching Laboratories make Biophysics Lab especially fun on nice days when the sunlight streams through the glass wall-windows.  Or, especially fun when some random kids in green shirts decide to do the YMCA dance outside of them.

Hope you enjoyed the peek into the more hidden areas on campus!  If you come for your own tour, make sure you take some time to explore on your own.  And, most importantly, don’t forget to take some selfies.
