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.
Hey! My name is Caleb, and I am the current President for the Hide and Seek Club! I’ve been with the club since 2019, and have been an executive member for nearly as long. I am currently in an Education and Native Studies degree, and you can usually find me hiding from all of the immediate deadlines that I have piled up from my classes at club events! As a giant nerd, I also enjoy board games and D&D. Hope to both see you all and to never see you at all during club events.
Vice President - Finance
Hello everyone, my name is Steven King. This is my fourth year as a Chemistry student with the UofA, and my third year with the club. I hope that as your VP finance I can help the club function to the best of its ability. 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
Hello! My name is Aiden Klymchuk and I am a third year student in the Computing Science department. I have been a participant in club activities for over a year 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.
Vice President - Internal
Hello! My name is Chloe and I am in my 4th year of my undergraduate degree in Chemistry. I enjoyed playing hide and seek as a kid and have loved getting to play in new environments across campus! When I'm not at club you could find me hiding away from all of the analytic chemistry labs on campus - shhhhhhh don't tell them about my totally righteous hiding spot! Hope you enjoy the club and always feel free to come say Hi!
