Mr. Potato Head appears around campus

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]On the morning of Wednesday, March 5, students entering the Carlson Café on campus may have noticed an odd pair of tiny blue glasses sitting on top of one of the coffee machines. Fairly noticeable to any student walking into the shop, these glasses were the key item leading to a very delicious prize.
The miniature blue glasses were a piece from the popular Mr. Potato Head toy, and thus part of a new scavenger game hosted by Chartwells, Clarion’s Dining Services: The Misfortunate Adventures of Mr. Potato Head.
Posters and signs have been hanging around campus at the Commons Dining Hall, in Starbucks, Gemmell Grinds and even at the library, advertising for this event. All students are encouraged to take part.
The rules of the hunt are simple: every Wednesday, a new piece of Mr. Potato Head will be hidden in one of Clarion Dining Retail Stores such as Gemmell Grinds, Gemmel Food Court, Carlson Café or Starbucks. Students have all of that day to look for the piece, and when found return it to Pazelli’s, the pizza shop located in Gemmell Food Court, to receive a certificate for a free personal pizza.
Lindsey Schneck, M]marketing director of Chartwells, developed the idea after Commons hosted their “Show Me Your Tots” brunch.
“I wanted a program that engaged students more with Clarion Dining social media,” she said. “So like for this program, for extra clues as to where the part of Mr. Potato Head is, students can like CU Dining’s Facebook page, Twitter account or Instagram.”
This past Wednesday, on Clarion Dining’s Facebook page, a picture and clue were posted about the most recent missing piece.
The clue given was, “I enjoy time alone in a quiet location where I can read and enjoy a nice cup of hot coffee. This is going to be hard for me to do today since I can’t read without my glasses.”
Schneck said, “I hid the piece at 8:30 a.m. in Carlson Café and a student had already found and turned it in by 11:45am for their free personal pizza at Pazzelli’s. It was really quick. I hope that as the weeks go on we will increase our followers on our social media pages. I want students to leave comments if they like this kind of stuff or have any ideas for things to hide, where to hide them, or different prizes.”
Students who would like to participate in the Misfortunate Adventures of Mr. Potato Head and have the chance to win a free personal pizza can follow or like Clarion Dining on Facebook at, on twitter at and on Instagram @clariondining.
This program will last until the end of the semester, so there will be plenty of chances for students to search for pieces and win.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_facebook type=”standard”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_tweetmeme type=”horizontal”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
