Escape Room

“Career Services' Escape Room was a great way to improve skills outside of the classroom. It was also fun!”

Escape rooms challenge participants to solve puzzles, find clues, crack codes, and open locked boxes—all in a limited amount of time. Because students spend so much time in lectures, labs, and workshops, Career Services took a creative approach to career education: they engineered an escape room.

Inside the 10 x 10-foot room, teams of two to five students have 45 minutes to escape. During the challenge, students employ the skills recruiters are looking for—teamwork, problem-solving, critical thinking, and communication--and are asked to evaluate their skills when the challenge is over.

We've made career education an adventure.

Our escape room themes change each semester. Do you have what it takes to escape?

 Students: You will receive an email from Career Services when the next escape room opens. Sessions are limited.  Appointment required.
