FreestyleFriday: Escape Room

Friday, November 20 at 6:00 – 7:00 PM, Hosted Sanskriti

We’re back with more virtual escape room fun! In this spy-themed escape room, you have just graduated from a prestigious spy academy and are about to embark on your journey to become the greatest spymaster, in the footsteps of your idol Carmen Sandiego. But first, your skills must be put to the test! Come apply all your U of T intelligence to try and find where in the world Carmen is! Members will be broken into breakout rooms and compete against one another to see who can get through the escape room as quickly as possible. FreeStyle Fridays are one-hour sessions every Friday to bring the U of T community together for casual conversation and themed, carefree activities. These student-led spaces are opportunities to have fun and take a break from school or work with other U of T community members amidst a summer affected by COVID-19.
