WE’RE OUTTA HERE!

  • 30 minutes
  • 7 locks
  • 1 precious manuscript

On 30-Jan-2019, our administration team joined forces with colleagues from around campus to participate in a Robertson Library Escape Room called Museum Marauders. We’re not sure we’d be posting the picture if the result were different, but with 5 seconds to spare, the team successfully saved the manuscript from destruction.
