Uh-oh Wally, the Graduate College mascot, is back to his old ways.

Go on informative journeys across different graduate programs and resources with our good friend with the striped sleeves. But before we can highlight these programs and resources, we have to find Wally. Geeze, that guy.

In order to do so, unscramble the clues Wally leaves throughout the memo and report back to The first studEnt who successfully identifies where Wally is will get a small gift from the man himself.

Because he’s nice, Wally says he’ll only be changing the fonts throughout the memo to hint where he is. The unscrambling is your job.

We will start next week. Good luck Cowboys.

Check out “Wally’s Adventure” on the left-hand side to see where Wally has been in the past as well as see which student was able to unscramble the mystery.
