Every year, AtwoodDorm
runs a point-based ScavengerHunt?
. Some of the other dorms do this as well (see EastScavengerHunt?
), but unlike the other dorms, Atwood's scavenger hunts have people commit crimes, such as property damage and grand theft auto (not a joke), which leads to Atwood being put on social probation as a result. Most infamously, it seems to be a tradition for Atwood-ers (Atwoodies?) to steal chickens from the PitzerCollege
- For historical reference, the grand theft auto bit was because a group of students hijacked one of the CampSec golf carts, drove it down to CMC, then got caught by CampSec. I could be wrong on the details, but there was definitely a golf cart involved.
- Multiple teams stole golf carts. There was another team that had ten or so team members push the cart down to CMC from Pitzer while two other team members attempted to convince onlookers that this was okay. (This also counted as grand theft auto.)
- Also, the reason that people were doing this was because one of the scavenger hunt items was to take a picture of a CampSec golf cart at CMC, but none of the CampSec golf carts were at CMC at the time, so teams that wanted the points had to physically move a CampSec golf cart from another college to CMC.
