As you probably know, each class at Booth is divided into 10 cohorts. We spend the first month of school our first year with our cohorts in Orientation+ (of which LEAD is a big component). Then throughout the year, we have events and competitions organized by cohorts: The Golden Gargoyles Film Competition and Awards Night, a Field Day style competition at Windy City Field House, trivia nights, a Booth Beach Olympics in the spring, etc.
The first official event of the 2015-16 Cohort Cup Competition is underway this week, with the Windy City Photo Scavenger Hunt. Items on the list include taking a video explaining your favorite piece of art in Harper Center, enjoying a frosty beverage at a famous Irish bar in Chicago, and doing jumping jacks in front of a historic pizza place. Check out photos from the competition on insta. Current standings are as follows (by number of posts — points differ for post content).
The event ends on Saturday so check back this weekend for winners and a highlight reel!
