This page is the source for information regarding the CSU Housing and
Dining Services February 2018 Treasure Hunt. It will be updated further,
as more specific regarding the hunt are made available.
During the hunt team's will receive their clues either through this
web page or, if they prefer, though a hard copy distribution system
within H & D Services.
Below, under the heading "Clues",
each of the five clues will become available at specific times during
the hunt. Once each clue is published to the site the "not
yet released" label will change to "Released" with
a link to that clue. Your team may access and print that clue from the
website or, if you prefer, a paper copy/ies of the clue will be available
through other channels in the HDS.
Additionally if there are modifications to a clue, or if any team has
requested a hint, there will be a note
indicating that modifications have been made to the clue page in question
and the date and time that the modifications were made(see
sample clue below).
For each clue your team will need to either find either a piece of
information on the CSU campus
These links will be active at the date and time listed:

Final Clue Submissions Due: Monday February 26th 12PM - Noon
Each clue requires
your team to solve various sorts of puzzles. The solution to the clue will ask for a piece
of information to be submitted for the final submission. These pieces
of information require that teams collect the information (numbers,
dates, quotes, etc....) from around campus or from other public sources.
While the hunt is under way your team may choose to ask for a hint
or some help. That is absolutely fine and is an expected, regular occurrence with
many Rootles hunts as deciphering the answers is more important than style points. When each clue is uploaded there will be an accompanying
form that can be filled out. That form will be delivered to a Rootles
representative who will provide some assistance with the clue. Your
team should understand that this response will be made through the website
for anyone participating to see.
You have two ways to submit your team's answers for the hunt. Your
team may fill out the form below (the easiest for us) or in an email
to john at rootles.com. Alternatively you may print and utilize this
pdf to submit your answer sheet, sealed in an envelope, to Jean West in Palmer, by 12:00PM (noon) on February 26th.
