The Buzz 75 FAQs
- How should I be tracking items and sharing my progress with Student Involvement?
We encourage you to keep evidence of your adventures in the form of photos, ticket stubs, receipts, etc. Consider keeping a photo album on Facebook or Flickr. When you finish 40, you can share your photos and evidence with us to earn your t-shirt.
Please consider sharing your photos on the Involvement Facebook page to help promote the list and show UWS students having fun!
- What if I have already done a lot of these things on the list?
Awesome, we hope that you have! To earn your t-shirt, we would still like for you to have evidence of the items on the list to be fair for everyone. You are welcome to repeat an item again - take some friends with, so that they can check it off too!
- Can we do items in groups/make events out of it?
Of course! The list is meant to be something fun to do with others. Many of the items would make a great residence hall floor program, student organization outing, or fun activity with friends.
- I have another question about The Buzz 75 that isn't answered here.
