Founders Day brings bargains to students

Press Release

People won’t be looking for fool’s gold on Friday, Feb. 4 – rather, they will be looking for blue gold.

As part of Washburn University’s Founders Day celebration on Friday, Feb. 4, 20 blue rocks will be hidden around campus.

If someone locates a blue rock and turns it into the university relations office, room 129, Morgan Hall, they will receive $10 on their Washburn iCard (or a gift certificate to the Washburn Bookstore if they do not have an iCard).

The rocks will be hidden around campus by 8:30 a.m. Feb. 4 and only one rock can be claimed per person.
