  • Pin Trading
    Trading Odyssey of the Mind pins is a tradition that goes back more than 20 years. Millions of pins have been traded and thousands of friendships have been made during this time. No one ever thought that pin-trading would become as popular and widespread as it is today. Over the years, Odyssey of the Mind has strived to create an environment where people can trade pins without being disruptive to the competition. To keep pin-trading a positive experience for everyone, please read our pin trading rules.
  • Recreation Facilities
    You will want to take advantage of various recreational opportunities offered on campus, which include swimming, volleyball, foosball, and basketball. So don't forget to pack appropriate clothing!
  • Reiman Gardens
    Fourteen acres of beauty, open year-round with live, exotic butterflies flying in their own "wing"; indoor gardens, gift shop, and meeting rooms available to rent. Tours welcome. Return to see new gardens each season as Reiman Gardens strives to "educate, enchant and inspire environmental stewardship with displays of living beauty."
    The dinosaurs are here! Over 25 realistic, full-scale dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures now inhabit Reiman Gardens. Designed and constructed by paleontologist Guy Darrough, this traveling exhibit has visited several gardens around the country. Darrough prides himself in creating very realistic, life-sized dinosaurs, ranging in size from 6 to 20 feet tall.
