Scavenger Hunt

While the onsite exhibition has brought together evidence of Kate Gleason’s life and work, there’s more to this story. There are many other items referencing Kate, however they could not be moved into the exhibition space. For instance, our College of Engineering is named in Kate’s honor. To bring together these items and to share them with our visitors, we’ll launch a scavenger hunt on Friday, November 20 where you can learn more about Kate through items on our campus! Follow @kates150th on Twitter and Instagram to participate.
