Check out how the University of Kansas used Foursquare’s University Badges for a month-long check-in challenge to encourage students to explore the campus.
4sqOnCampus: Check-in challenge at the University of Kansas!
Students earned more than just five Foursquare badges. Check-ins also qualified them to win prizes such as ee drinks with a meal, to buy-one-get-one-free theater ticket deals and free flash drives from the KU Libraries. There was also a grand prize involved: An Apple iPad. This involved both Foursquare check-ins and tweeting the hashtag #ku4sq to be entered in the grand prize drawing.
There were over 10,000 check-ins and 500 Specials (prizes) redeemed during the month-long check-in challenge.
