Past WPTS Events
- Egg Hunt— WINNER of CBI Best Promotion 2005 a growing tradition for three years, the Egg Hunt is a popular event on campus. In the month of April, over 300 eggs were carefully hidden all over the entire Pitt campus. Each plastic egg contained a number which led them to a prize. Prizes ranged from "Win a Date with Mark Rawlings" to CDs to a New Kids on the Block puzzle.
- The WPTS Moustache Challenge— in the month of November, the WPTS staff created the insanity of "The Moustache Challenge" where we challenged the Pittsburgh campus and the city itself, who can grow the most impressive moustache?. Based on the film "The Glorius Mustache Challenge" by Jay Della Valle, the event accumulated to a historic showing of every facial hair masterpiece from the Fu Manchu to the Handlebar to the Roadmaster. All were very worthy opponents, but only one could prevail, and this virtuoso of facial hair won a free Nintendo Wii. Other categories included, "Worst Moustache", "Best Fake Moustache", and "Think You know Your 'Stache?".
