Santa Clara University Global Engagement Office is celebrating the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide by designing online interactive activities for students to participate in. The activities include quiz questions relating to global events, having students guess countries from emojis, and solving tricky brain teasers. One activity will go live on the website every three hours. Participants have three hours to submit one response for every live activity and if the submitted answer is correct, participants will be entered into a raffle to win GEO gear. There are a total of five activities live per day- first activity going live at 8am, second one at 11am, third at 2pm, fourth at 5pm, and fifth at 8pm. The pattern will repeat throughout the weekdays, providing participants with 25 chances to win! All activities contain different material and participants can submit a response for all five daily activities. Participants can even submit a response for all 25 activities if they desire. Winners are announced on the website the following day of each activity.

There is an overarching activity encompassing the entire International Education Week 2018 called GEO BINGO. Participants must stop by the Global Engagement Office located on the 1st floor of Varsi Hall to pick up a bingo scorecard. They are available at the front desk and can be picked up anytime during the week, except Friday, between the hours of 8am and 5pm. One fact will be posted everyday on the GEO website. By Friday, participants who have "BINGO" spelled out across their bingo scorecard should come to the Global Engagement Office between the hours of 8am and 5pm to drop off the bingo scorecard with the back filled out. Once the bingo scorecard is dropped off, participants are entered into a raffle to win one of three $30 visa gift cards. Winners are announced the following Monday.
