By: Dr. Tim Lintner, Campus Director
Sabotage. Revenge. Betrayal. All forms of intrigue were on hand as the USC Aiken Freshmen Teaching Fellows donned their sleuth hats and tackled Escapology in Columbia. In one room, six Fellows had to figure out who was responsible for the untimely death of a well-heeled patriarch. In another room, a group of five Fellows (and the hapless USC Aiken Teaching Fellow Director) needed to find the missing air canisters enabling their disabled WWII submarine to surface for air. Problem-solving, teamwork, and leadership skills were all on hand as the Fellows solved (without any clues) the Murder in the Mansion. Due to the utter uselessness of the TF Director, the other group was just minutes away from cracking the code and breathing the crisp, welcomed ocean air. Regardless of outcomes, a good time was had by all.
