We recently held our Golden Ticket Social Media Scavenger Hunt, which was open to Virginia Tech students. Finding the answers to the clues and submitting photos earned students points towards the grand prize: the Golden Ticket! The winner received a pair of tickets to each show of the season, plus a covetable backstage tour.
Our winner was Tiffani Ray. Congratulations, Tiffani! Take a look at how she came out on top:
This is me with the Hokie statue in the student services building
This is me in the Hahn Horticulture Gardens. I believe it it the most inspirational place on campus because it is beautiful and completely natural. It is where I go to think and relax to enjoy the peace and serenity of nature. It inspires me in so many ways. I love it!
Tiffani said she had a hard time choosing which photo to share, so she shared this one as well:
Me in front of the Center for the Arts building
Me at the Farmers Market at noon with Thomas Taurman live behind me!
Me outside of Frosty Parrot. My favorite Downtown business. Yummy Fro-Yo
Me at the Perspective Gallery in Squires where the Engram Exhibition is currently showing!
Me outside of the Odd Fellows Hall in between BWW’s and Wendy’s.
Me outside of the Lyric Theatre downtown with the Marquee in the background.
Tiffani also got three out of four Twitter trivia questions correct for bonus points. Congratulations again, Tiffani! We’ll see you at our first performance, the Philip Glass Ensemble on Friday, November 1, at 8 p.m.

In celebration of Earth Day, the Center for the Arts paired with the Institute of Creativity, Arts, and Technology (ICAT) and Radford University, along with partners the Children’s Museum of Blacksburg and FreshAiR for a special kid-friendly day filled with dinosaurs on the Virginia Tech campus.
Yep, you heard right: dinosaurs!
On Sunday, April 21, the day kicked off with the DinoDig, a smartphone-based dinosaur scavenger hunt leading children and their parents and guardians around the Virginia Tech campus from the Graduate Life Center Lawn near Squires Student Center to Henderson Lawn off of Alumni Mall. Ivy, a Blacksburg area student, led her peers via video through the hunt, stopping at several points along the way to educate the kids about what life was like for the dinosaurs.
At one point during the scavenger hunt, the kids even got to see how a dinosaur compared in size to the Torgersen Bridge! (Spoiler: it was pretty big.)
Eventually, the dino-loving kids and their parents ended up at Henderson Lawn for the Dinosaur Petting Zoo, put on by Erth Visual and Physical. Life-like dinosaur puppets made appearances one by one, and the children had the opportunity to pet them and feed them. Finally, the mighty Tyrannosaurus Rex burst out of the tent, sending a thrill of exhilaration up each audience member’s spine!
All in all, the students were able to learn about dinosaurs, spend time with their families, and enjoy the beautiful outdoors in early spring.
