Fun Facts

  • The University of Chicago has the first ever Heisman trophy on display, won by a student athlete there in 1935.
  • "Every May, since 1987, the University of Chicago has hosted the largest and best scavenger hunt in the world." At least, so they say. "Scav" spans four days; the hunt list is expansive and exhaustive; and festivities include games, a blood drive, and a road trip.
