Are you ready for the Metropolitan State Medallion Hunt?

Back by popular demand, the Metropolitan State Medallion Hunt kicks off on Monday, April 2. This challenge benefits the Metropolitan State University Annual Fund Drive.

We had a good time with the medallion hunt last year. This year we hope to extend the fun a little bit longer by releasing clues throughout April, rather than during just one week. Our resident clue authors Allen Bellas and August Hoffman have taken up the challenge to delight, entertain, and confound their Metropolitan State colleagues. Of course, our real purpose is to get you excited about making a gift to the Annual Fund Drive. When members of our own community include Metropolitan State as one of their giving priorities, it sends a powerful message to potential funders, alumni and students, that our mission is worthy of support and investing in our students makes a difference.

Everyone who participated in the hunt by purchasing an “ I support the Annual Fund Drive” sticker will be invited to join us at an ice cream truck social from 1 to 2 p.m. Tuesday, May 1 on the Saint Paul Campus and on Wednesday, May 2 at the MEC in Minneapolis. (Save your sticker.)

Stickers are available for a minimum $10 donation to the Annual Fund Drive. Stickers are available at Gateway and may be picked up in person or sent interoffice from the Foundation office. Donations are accepted through online giving, checks or by completing an Annual Fund payroll deduction form. Groups or hunting partners may not share a sticker.

If the medallion is not found, prizes will be distributed through a drawing of all entries. To enter without making a gift, please return an annual fund pledge form with the words “NO DONATION” written in the donation area of the form.

All returned pledge forms will be entered into a prize drawing.*

• “Table for four, please” — Lunch with university President Ginny Arthur for three faculty or staff members.
• “Get your Metro stuff” — One of several gift cards to the Metropolitan State University Bookstore. (donated)
• “Make it a Grande” — One of two $10 gift cards to Starbucks. (donated)
