The University of Oregon has come up with a novel use of foursquare to introduce students to campus during Welcome Week. As part of the “Grand Tour,” the Oregon Duck has left tips around campus that will highlight some features of campus that students may not know about, like this one at Johnson Hall:
If youâ€™ve seen the movie Animal House, youâ€™ve seen the interior of UO President Lariviereâ€™s office! This 1978 comedy classic was filmed on the UO Campus.
Students who friend the Oregon Duck and check in at all 10 locations with tips on Friday, September 24 can show their checkin history to redeem a real-life InDUCKted badge. The badge is good for 20% on Oregon Ducks sportswear at the Duck Store.
This is a fun, inexpensive way for colleges to use foursquare that shows off some of the interesting capabilities of the tips platform.
