Nope, we can check you in to the event with with your details

Can a non-Monash friend come?

Yes, but we do have limited spaces for non-Monash people on the Scavenger Hunt. If you can, this would be a better experience if you came on your own, but we understand that it might be easier with a buddy :)

Why do ticket Sales close before the event?

We need time to organise you all into your groups, which can take a while to do. So make sure you get in early, as this event may also sell out even before ticket sales finish!

This event is hosted by MSA Volunteering: First Year Camps & Events program. This leadership program was established in 1974 and aims to socialise and orientate new Monash students prior to Week 0. MSA Camps and Events is a volunteer leadership program that provides Monash students with an opportunity to meet other students prior to their first day on campus. The events we run are fun, inexpensive and accessible, with the aim of providing safe spaces where students can meet other students, who they may never have bumped into otherwise. We welcome all new and returning Monash students (Domestic, International, Exchange students) from all Monash Campuses, as well as returning students who wish to take part.
