Clemson Easter egg hunt

This Saturday, April 15, Clemson will host the first annual Clemson Easter Egg Hunt.

This massive hunt will be a campus-wide event, encompassing literally everywhere you can travel on foot. There will be eggs hidden all over: from Tillman to Brooks, from Hendrix all the way to Death Valley.

The only thing that will be off limits is the inside of the buildings. To sum it up, if you have to go through a door to get where you’re going, there will be no eggs there. There will be eggs inside of Death Valley, however. The gates will be open for prospective egg hunters to enter.

In order to be able to participate in the egg hunt, hunters must register at the designated table outside of the Cooper Library before the start of the hunt, which begins at 11 a.m. There is no entry fee, but hunters must bring their egg container to the table to make sure that it is egg hunt-approved.

To prepare for this Saturday event, hunters only need to be equipped with three things: good running shoes, carrying containers for their eggs, and a strong sense of rivalry. There will be over 100,000 eggs hidden around campus, so there are plenty for everyone. However, you should be prepared to duke it out with other people in the race to get the best eggs.

Although each hidden egg will be filled with either candy or chocolatey goodness, there are a few specialty eggs to look out for. The grand prize eggs, recognizable by their large size and either gold, silver or bronze color, will be hidden with the rest of the other eggs. The gold egg is obviously the most valuable, with the silver and then bronze egg following. If found, not only will the hunter get to keep the contents of the egg, but the egg will be able to be redeemed at the registration table for a special prize. Keep in mind that although these eggs will be hidden with the rest of the eggs, they will not be quite as easy to find.

Also hidden with the other eggs will be multiple special eggs with orange and black tiger stripe patterns on them. These eggs supposedly have better-than-normal prizes inside, but that’s not the best part. If you are able to collect five of these tiger eggs, you can turn them in to the registration desk for a solid chocolate Easter bunny. This perk also stacks. For example, if you are somehow miraculously able to find ten tiger eggs, you will get two chocolate bunnies.

Surprisingly, after the event was organized last week, President Clements announced that he would be participating. After learning that he was going to be a part of the hunt The Tiger reached out to him for a quote.

“I think this egg hunt is a wonderful way to bring the Clemson Family closer to each other,” Clements said. “I suppose as sort of an incentive for all the young people to get out there on Saturday, I’ll be hunting for my own eggs with Beth. I’m definitely going to be on the lookout for some striped tiger eggs. I hope everyone has fun and finds lots of eggs!”

If you haven’t forgotten him yet, Dabo Swinney is most definitely going to be participating in this hunt.

“Oh yeah, I think this hunt is going to be great for raising the Clemson spirit. After the huge crowd we had for the spring game, Clemson’s already going to be pumped for this. You’ll for sure catch me out there. I’m going bring a pillow case for my eggs. And I’m going to get that golden egg. You better not get in between me and that egg. If you do, you just best know that you’re going to get bowled over. Good luck, and go Tigers!”
