Riddle Me This, Riddle Me That


Summer Party

We would like to start this week’s #SocialWednesday off by thanking each and every one of you who showed up at our very first official party to celebrate being social with us on August 4th! We had a great turnout and everyone seemed to enjoy the dimmer version of the lounge as well as the glow stick cups we handed out to color things up a bit. We are looking forward to see all of you at our next party on September 8th where we will have more of–literally–everything as we anticipate an even bigger crowd to join us in welcoming the new students to GGU!

We will share more details about our Welcome Party in the coming weeks, but for now, let’s get back to our routine as we have some good amount of news and updates to share with you this week!

News & Updates

One of our biggest excitements about this party was the exclusive announcement we made towards the end of the event on August 4th to kick-off our month long treasure hunt contest.

For those who didn’t stay until the end and missed the announcement, let us make it official:

We are hosting a treasure hunt throughout the month of August!

Here are the instructions and rules:

  • The image above was used to create 12 jigsaw puzzle pieces that will be posted around the campus in the process of this contest.
  • A riddle will be posted on the digital signage screens on campus every Thursday with a weekly timer.
  • Each riddle will lead to a location in which three jigsaw puzzle pieces are waiting to be found.
  • The person to collect most pieces will win the grand prize which will be announced later in the month.
    …and believe us when we say this: The reward will be well worth it!

The first riddle was screened during the party on August 4th and was posted on the digital signage screens the day after. We noticed that all three pieces have already been found! Those who didn’t show up at the party will need to keep their eyes on the screens for the next riddle to catch up! And those who found the puzzle pieces, hold onto them until September 8th! 🙂

The Next riddle will be posted on the screens tomorrow! Keep your eyes up on the screens and think fastMay the smarter–and quicker–one win! 🙂

*If you have any questions about this contest, don’t hesitate to contact us at ggusocial@ggu.edu.


With the help of our friends at SGA, more than 10 people gathered around to volunteer at Project Open Hand’s San Francisco Kitchen on August 4th.


Our Vice President for Community Involvement, Mary Abdelnour, posted a photo album on our Facebook Group of all the volunteers having fun in the kitchen while helping Project Open Hand’s beautiful cause. Make sure to check the photos out and give our volunteers a shout for being awesome!
