The Buzz 75 FAQs

  1. 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. Consider keeping a photo album on Facebook or Instagram using the #Buzz75. When you finish 5, 10, 20, 40, and all 75 of the activities, share your photos with us to earn your prizes.

  1. 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 and take some friends with, so that they can check it off too!

  1. 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.

  1. I have another question about The Buzz 75 that isn't answered here.
