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 VP External 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
Justine is the new VP Internal for the upcoming year. She is a Biological Sciences major and Chemistry minor going into her 4th and final year of undergraduate studies. Justine has been a member of the Hide and Seek club throughout her undergraduate career and loves to hide (she even received the title of “ultimate hider” during one of our events). Her favorite building to play in is Law because it has a lot of hidden gems and fun places to hide. Her favorite thing about Hide and Seek club is getting to know the buildings and getting the opportunity to make memories that will last a lifetime. As the new VP internal, she hopes to expand the club and make it an inclusive space for everyone who wants to participate.
Vice President - Advancement
Miranda is the new VP Advancement this year, and is an Industrial Design student going into her fourth and final year. This is her 3rd year of participating in the hide and seek club, but had wanted to join since she heard about it in high school. Her favourite building to play in is Biosci because it was one of the first buildings she successfully hid in, and it’s built like a maze. Her favorite part of the Hide and Seek club is running away and finding creative places to hide. As the new VP advancement, she hopes to help the club grow before she graduates in the spring.
Vice President - Finance
Hello to all! I’m Caleb and the VP financial for this year. I’m currently in my third year of University and my first year in my Comp. Sci. degree. It’s also my 3rd year with the Hide and Seek club! As part of the executive group, we all work hard to make the club a fun and inviting place to anyone who wants to join! And we also try to branch out and do other things as a club, which are also incredibly fun, such as parties, participating in events on campus and trying to organize fun things to do off campus. I spend my time on campus usually asleep, or trying to find out where I’m supposed to be, cause I usually don’t know. My favourite building to play in is BioSci. And my favourite game is Cops vs. Robbers.
