Odyssey - CravenOn March 10, middle school and high school students will take over campus for this year’s East Central Pennsylvania Odyssey of the Mind competition. This is Millersville’s 9th time hosting the problem-solving competition involving students from Lancaster and surrounding counties.

Odyssey of the Mind is an international program that challenges students from kindergarten through 12th grade to solve unique problems ranging from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to the arts through creativity and collaboration. This year 541 students making up 83 teams from 50 different schools will be participating.

Middle and high school students will interact with current MU students and faculty, and get to know the campus. Most of the events will take place in the Student Memorial Center and Stayer Hall. Millersville’s mascot Skully as well as Star War characters will be visiting for photos and a dance party to celebrate the competition.
