ESCAPE ROOM OPTIONS  

Escape Room #1: Tutor Tracks

 

You show up to the LSC for your tutoring appointment, and are directed to the workshop room but your tutor has gone missing, and you are now trapped! You see their bag on a table nearby, with a spilled coffee. Where did your tutor go and how will you escape?

Escape Room #2: All Jammed Up

 

You've come to Study Jam in the Arnie, and had a blast, maybe too good of a time! All that studying and those tasty snacks made you pretty tired; you fell asleep and wake up to silence. Study Jam has ended and you've been locked in the Arnie!

Escape Room #3: Escape the LSC

After a long day of studying, you've fallen asleep at a desk in the Learning Support Centre and wake to discover that you've been locked inside the LSC! Join your Study Skills Tutors as you try to escape from the LSC in this virtual escape room!
