First Steps in the Long Blue Line

Meet Madison! She will introduce you to the game. Click here to get started!


How to Play

Follow the clues ("steps") to locations on campus. At each location, there will be a sign that will give you the next step. Pay attention because some steps may direct you to a web site or video for more directions! Be sure to document what you find with a short video clip or a selfie. If you do a TikTok, open the TikTok App --> Go to "Me" section --> Tap on the three dots in upper right hand corner --> Under "Account" go to "Privacy and Safety" tab --> Make sure the "Private Account" setting is NOT selected.


You have from Tuesday, August 18th through Thursday, August 20th to complete the challenge and come to our office for your t-shirt. If you choose to do the TikTok, you must complete those by Friday, August 21st with #firststepsinthelongblueline. Be sure to get your friends to like it! We will announce the TikTok winner on Wednesday, August 26th.



All participants will receive a t-shirt at the end of the challenge! T-shirts are first come, first served! If you make a TikTok, enter it to win the grand prize by using #firststepsinthelongblueline. The best TikTok video will be awarded a grand prize of a $200 campus bookstore gift certificate! Your video must include all steps.

First Step

Many years ago, two of these type of trees were planted at MUW and its sister institution. Legend has it that if its leaf falls from each tree, at the same time, and lands on someone’s shoulder at both institutions, they are destined to fall in love and live happily ever after. I dare you to stand under this tree in the front of campus!
