UP CIEM held its second installment of Detour, an amazing race-like event, last July, 25, 2015. Unlike Detour 1 which focused on introducing different locations within and around the campus, Detour 2 gave the freshmen a chance to test their knowledge about various places in UP.

The participating UP Diliman Industrial Engineering freshmen were grouped into three teams. Each team had one CIEMer as their guide in finishing the challenges that were given to them. There were several hidden stations within the campus, each of which had tasks that the freshmen had to do to enhance their intellectual and physical skills. The teams had to analyze and solve clues that were given to them in order to know where the stations were.

Like any other race, the event ended with the announcement of winners. There were also some special awards such as Best Group Cheer, etc. IEshikawa shirts were given as prizes for the winners. As the day came to a close, the CIEMers had a little chit-chat with the freshmen over cold coffee - which were from our generous sponsor, Nescafe - and slices of pizza sa well.

Do you know your university enough? Do you have what it takes to finish the race? Well, these freshmen certainly have it, and are now ready to face any challenges that UP colege life might throw at them.
