About us

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.

Steven king

President

Hey! My name is Steven, and I am the current President for the Hide and Seek Club! I’ve been with the club since 2021, and have been an executive for quite a bit of that time. I am currently a student in the science faculty, with a major in chemistry, and math minor. I usually can't be found, as I am too busy hiding from my classes, however if you do find me, I will usually be either playing dnd, stressing over the class, that I haven't studied for or getting ready to play Hide and seek, Hope you all come join us as we are releasing seekers, in 3, 2,....

Vice President - Finance

Salutations fellow players! I am Shawna, your V.P. Finance for the 2024/2025 season! I am a second year student in the elementary program with the Faculty of Education. When I’m not cramming for midterms or finals I am crocheting, working on my latest project. While normally I can be found in an obscure corner of campus blending in with the crowd, I can also be found in Humanities, though that changes often. Feel free to come find me if you ever want to talk or even just say hello. I look forward to another year of Hide and Seek brand madness!

I have been a participant in club activities for two years, and an executive for one, and have loved every second of it! I've met a lot of friends through the Hide and Seek Club and I hope that I can help to maintain the positive, inclusive and chaotic vibe that I fell in love with as soon as I became a member! As your VP Advancement, I want to make club events and activities run as smoothly as possible and if you ever need to contact us about important in-club things, feel free to reach out over discord or by email!

Vice President - Logistics

I am the great travelling cart, Bilbo Waggins, once a small town cart, in my little corner of waggionton. I used to spend my days in a small house on the hillside. Until one day the wise foreigner came to our village, and his name was Ex-President Taylor. I was apprehensive at first but I joined him on the journey anyway. Now I go on great adventures with the Hide and seek club. Of course it is scary being the VP Logistics, however I believe I will be able to perform my duties. And hey if you ever want to hang out I'd be open to going to breakfast, or maybe even second breakfast.
