who are we?

We are a group of students who play hide and seek in different buildings on campus throughout the academic year. From traditional hide and seek to variations such as sardines or manhunt, we cover them all. It doesn't matter where you're from, what faculty you're in, or whether you're a student, staff member, or alumni, all are welcome to come along and join the fun!

how does it work?

Every week, we choose a different building on campus to play hide and seek in. After everyone has gathered at the meeting point and checked in, the fun begins. There are usually three different rounds per event. The first round is traditional hide and seek, while the second and third rounds are a variation, such as sardines or manhunt. Each round lasts approximately 18 minutes— 3 minutes for hiding and 15 minutes for seeking. At the start of each round, participants set the designated time on their phone, watch, or clock. As the round progresses and hiders are found, they check back in at the meeting point. Once time has run out, anyone who has not been found returns to the meeting point and prepares for the next round. Points are awarded for participation and for surviving a whole round without being found. Seekers can also gain extra points for finding a certain percentage of the hiders. At the end of the semester, the members with the most points win some awesome prizes.

Lauren Bernakevitch


Lauren is in her 3rd year of a business degree, she used to be in accounting but went through a midlife crisis, so now she's in marketing. Her education may be in shambles but she plays hide and seek every Friday to forget the mess she’s made of her life. She’s also really enjoying getting to be the president of such a great club, even with all the paperwork. Her favourite building to play in is Convocation Hall because that’s the only building she’s ever found a hiding place in, but she also enjoys getting lost in Tory (seriously how can anyone find their way around that entity absent of time or space?). Lauren doesn’t have a lot of hobbies but she does do a lot of BuzzFeed Quizzes, so there’s that.


Taylor Savoy

Vice President - Internal

Taylor is a classics student at some unknown point in his degree. He originally went to NAIT to study video game design but has since discovered the glory of the Roman Empire and now spends his time converting his friends and family to Paganism. Taylor's preferred way of hiding is in small enclosed spaces such a closets or lockers though he often deeply regrets it. As the VP internal Taylor isn't really sure what he's supposed to do but that's generally the norm for most of his life. When Taylor isn't converting his friends to ancient religious cults or scouting out hiding places he can almost always be found in a coffee shop line somewhere on Campus.

Caleb Lefebvre

Vice President - Advancement

Caleb is in his 2nd year of a combined bilingual degree for Education and Science. He found the club online, and decided that he would then play hide and seek for the rest of his time at the UofA. As VP advancement, Caleb doesn't generally know what is going on, or where the next portion of money is coming from, but will attempt to make it appear out of thin air. When he isn't playing hide and seek, Caleb is freaking out about homework, working, or just hiding from his responsibilities, which helps him with this club.

Jordy Pilisko

Vice President - Finance

Jordy is in his 4th year of economics. He’s in hide and seek club because he couldn’t be in the NDP club. He never really plays hide and seek, instead he just sits and watches. When he does play, he usually gets found. As VP of finance, if it was up to him, he would spend all the club money on stocks as long as they weren’t for fitbit. He always has a book with him so we’re not sure what he does other than read but we can confidently say it’s not writing his bio for Hide and Seek Club because Nicole had to do it for him.
