University of Scranton freshman go hunting

SCRANTON (WOLF) -- Thousands of freshman at colleges across our area are getting a feel for their new schools and communities.

The University of Scranton sent their freshman on a bit of an adventure Friday night.

To get to know the area, they got a list of thirty-seven downtown Scranton locations, scouring restaurants and shops to uncover scavenger hunt clues and win prizes.

Some ways to win prizes including going to a certain location and taking a selfie with the University of Scranton Mascot.

"It was definitely cool because we got to see little cafes and stuff that now I know if I want to go get coffee or go to places to get something to eat, instead of eating on campus we could come down here," said freshman Frankie Villar.
