(October 9, 2014) It's time for the McNeese 75th Anniversary Homecoming Week Scavenger Hunt! The rules are simple - just capture as many photos of yourself as you can with the items/locations from the following list and email them to marketing@mcneese.edu by Monday, October 20.  (Photos can be selfies or taken of you by someone else). The winner will win a $100 gift card to the McNeese Bookstore! In the event that more than one person submits all the photos, or the same majority amount, the winner will be selected from that group by a random drawing. And just for fun, you can tweet or post your photos to Facebook and Instagram as you collect them during the week using the hashtags #McNeeseHomecoming14, #CowboysForever and #Selfie!

The Lake Area Mental and Behavioral Health Conference will be held Thursday, Oct. 9, and Friday, Oct. 10, in Farrar Hall at McNeese State University.
