Join the Adventure: WTIU's IU Day Scavenger Hunt!


Are you ready to embark on a nostalgic journey filled with fun, discovery, and a sprinkle of childhood memories? WTIU is thrilled to invite you to celebrate IU Day with us through an adventurous  scavenger hunt!

IU Day is more than just a celebration; it's a worldwide event honoring Indiana University and the incredible individuals who contribute to its vibrant community. And what better way to commemorate this special occasion than by revisiting the beloved PBS Kids shows that shaped your childhood?

On this fun scavenger hunt, you'll have the opportunity to explore six locations on campus, all conveniently located near the Radio and TV building. Each location will be tied to a classic PBS Kids show from your youth, and as you journey through each stop, you'll collect a unique button as a memento of your adventure.

After you've completed your scavenger hunt, don't forget to stop by the Radio and TV Building, Room 100, for some well-deserved snacks and a chance to capture fun memories in our photo booth!

Get ready to dust off your nostalgia goggles, gather your friends, and prepare for an unforgettable journey down memory lane. We can't wait to see you on IU Day as we celebrate the magic of childhood and the enduring spirit of Indiana University.
