Assigned room
A new component of this year’s welcome is the Michigan Escape Room Challenge.  Each room will have 2 hosts and up to 16 new students assigned to it.  Each room will be stocked with duplicate materials.  The concept is that the students need to solve 9 puzzles to obtain the code to “escape” the room.  Volunteers for this role will need to attend one 2-hour orientation, in order to learn how to set the room, give directions, and facilitate the game: 8/15 10:00-12:00; 8/16 3:00-5:00; 8/17 3:00-5:00; 8/18 10:00-12:00.  All take place in 1200 EECS.  Once you complete the volunteer registration, select your orientation time here: http://doodle.com/poll/eatkzq27vqs2mqnb.
