Medallion Hunt Clues

The Medallion has been found! Thank you for participating and hope you enjoyed the hunt! For those who were curious about it's location, it was taped to the underside of a drinking fountain in the upstairs level of Johnson's Fieldhouse.

All this searching making you deflated?
Make sure you stay hydrated!

Run quick and scurry like a mouse,
Look, next, in the fieldhouse.

You may had heard from word of mouth,
That you should start by heading South.

The hunt’s begun, so c’mon Stout,
Get off your rump and head out and about!

Comedian (Tyler Boeh) (8pm, Great Hall MSC)

Tyler Boeh has gone from being a mild-mannered, nationally recognized college a Cappella group vocal percussionist to becoming a high-energy, intelligent, and downright silly beat boxing comedian. His focus shifted from singing a Cappella (a word he describes as Latin for “Without Girlfriend”) when he won a comedy contest in Portland, Oregon. After winning and placing in the finals of numerous Comedy Competitions from San Francisco to Boston to “The World Series of Comedy”, Boeh launched a great career in comedy including television appearances, colleges, cruise ships and headlining clubs. Tyler’s comedy CD was chosen by LaughSpin Magazine as the Best Comedy Album of 2012 and you may have seen him on such shows as “Celebrity Name Game”, “Moms Rule”, “NESN’s Comedy All Stars”, or heard him on SIRIUS radio. This is one show you won’t want to miss.
