FIG Hunters is an optional FIG group activity designed to connect students to campus, the Eugene community, and above all, to each other. The activities are based around creating fun and adaptable experiences, ranging from small and simple tasks to elaborate projects. Each FIG operates as their own team and competes with other FIGs to win prizes throughout the term. The ultimate goal is to win the hunt by gaining more points than the other FIGs. Prizes and awards are not based on who does the most activites or who does the most elaborate projects, but are awarded based on creativity, dedication, positive community impact, and having fun.
Faculty and FAs are encouraged to participate as much as they wish, but can also allow students to run their team's involvement separately.
