Students scramble for golden egg in campus-wide Easter egg hunt


Spring doesn’t only bring flowers and good weather. It invites new growth in plants, people and EGGS! 

Louie is putting on UNK’s first-ever campus-wide Easter egg hunt. Be the first to find Louie’s golden egg for your chance to win $500.

“Louie is the first in University history to singlehandedly start a campus-wide Easter Egg hunt,” said Teresa Green, chair of the Department of Botany.

Louie has been laying his eggs around campus. They don’t look like any ordinary eggs. These eggs are artistically coated in yellow and blue. Louie has no control over where or when he lays his eggs so they could be anywhere. Keep your eyes peeled. Multiple eggs can be found in one spot or littered throughout campus. 

Most students were not aware that Louie laid eggs since this is his first year doing it on campus. 

“I am a little concerned that an antelope is laying eggs,” said May Flowers, junior studio arts major. “It is concerning for Louie but fun for us I guess.”

Louie began laying eggs at the start of spring break. He has been on spring break in Florida at Daytona Beach for the last two weeks. None of his eggs have been laid on campus yet. In the past, Louie had taken time away until he was done laying his eggs. This year, he decided to share his gifts with the rest of the campus. 

Louie celebrated this last St. Patrick’s Day by scarfing down a pound of chocolate coins on Daytona Beach. He ate so much that his stomach began to hurt. After returning home on Mar. 18, Louie visited Student Health to see if they had anything to help with his upset stomach. A few tests later, the clinic found that all the chocolate coins he consumed over break coated one of the eggs in his body. This led to the creation of the first-ever golden egg. 

“Ever since I heard about the golden egg, I’ve made it my mission to be the first to find it,” said Justin Kidd, a junior at UNK. “I have been checking campus day and night so I can be UNK’s first to find Louie’s golden egg and take home the grand prize.”

Louie has not yet laid his golden egg. This egg has been taking longer to incubate than any of the other eggs he has laid.  

Keep your eyes open for Louie’s Golden Egg. If you happen to find it, be sure to bring it to Jelly Bean in URS and he will award you with your April Fools’ prize.
