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.
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 President 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.
Vice President - Internal
Hello everyone, my name is Steven king. This is my third year as a Chemistry student with the UofA, and my second year with the club. I hope that as your VP internal I can keep you all informed about the club ongoings. I am described to have mad Odlaw energy by some, and some just say I am mad. I am intrigued by the format of proper discussions and the blending of ideas, and hope I can learn about your passions. in conclusion I hope to meet you all as we enjoy the timelessness that is a good game of Hide and Seek.
Vice President - Advancement
Hi There! I'm Arsalan, and I joined UofA back in Winter 2022. I'm planning to peruse my studies in computing science. If you come to know me, you will notice that I'm quite passionate about aviation and spaceflight. I consider myself to be a very techie person, which suits my area of study, and I simply like talking about nerdy stuff. I have just recently taken up ballroom dancing, and have been really enjoying it. As the VP Advancement, my main goal and responsibility is to find sponsors, and plan fundraising events for the club.
Vice President - External
I'm a paragraph. Hi! I’m a Modern Languages and Cultural Studies major going into my last year. I’ve been a member of the Hide and Seek Club member since Fall of 2016 (yes, I’ve been here for far too long), and this is my second year serving as V.P. External. While I’m not going to tell you my best hiding spots, I will tell you that while hiding in a pile of recycling I started getting taken away by building services, so be careful where you hide.
Vice President - Finance
Hey! My name is Caleb! I’m in the Education and Native Studies dual degree program, and I’ve been a member of the Hide and Seek Club since Winter Semester of 2018-19. And I’ve been an exec since Fall semester of the following year! My nickname is the Holy Sasquatch and so try to find me in blurry photos and shaky camera footage, or at the exec table for events taking club fees as the current VP Financial. Hope to both see you all and to never see you at all during club events.
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 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.
