ST. LOUIS — College students at the University of Missouri — St. Louis got acquainted with the city and popular downtown attractions as they participated in a scavenger hunt onboard the St. Louis MetroLink rail system the weekend of Aug. 19.

According to a university blog post, thousands of college scholars took to the city’s rail system to network, learn about St. Louis, and get ready for the upcoming academic school year.

St. Louis MetroLink trains provided the transportation to the various scavenger activities including an activity within the scavenger hunt that brought the group to the statute of Stan Musial, a famous St. Louis Cardinals baseball player.

“The idea was to introduce not only campus during the weekend but also to explore amazing things around St. Louis,” says Megan Green, director of new student programs at the university.

The city’s light rail system is a 46-mile route with 37 stations, including a couple of station stops serving the University of Missouri – St. Louis campus. UMSL is St. Louis’ largest college university.
