Northern Star Scavenger Hunt: Clue #3

By Northern Star staff

As I sit here and wait for someone to find me,

Let me tell you all what I see.

I see DuSable, Reavis, Cole and Zulauf Hall,

Holmes Student Center and the campus mall.

Scavenger hunt clues will be published on beginning today until Friday unless the medallion is found prior to that date.


Read the daily clues to search for the Northern Star medallion hidden on public land on the NIU campus.

The medallion will not be hidden:

– On public grounds

– In water

– Under any skating surface

– On a golf course

– On any artificial turf surface  


– At any construction site

If you find the medallion, return it to the Northern Star in the Campus Life Building, Suite 130, to collect your prizes.

If the Northern Star Scavenger Hunt medallion is not found by 11:59 p.m. Sunday, the Northern Star reserves the right to terminate the hunt.

The Northern Star reserves the right to discontinue the hunt at any time if public property is destroyed.
