Capture the Campus

Capture the Campus

This security-themed event for students is modeled after one of the most popular events at the annual DEF CON Hacking Conference. Participants work in teams to solve challenges and puzzles while capturing "flags" to earn points. At the end of the day, the teams with the most points win prizes.

Your team of 3–5 people will:

  • Pick and choose which challenges to take on.
  • Spend the day decoding, deciphering, and exploring Mid-State and downtown Stevens Point.
  • Earn points and compete for prizes going to the top teams.

Play all day or for part of the day. It's up to you. To be a top-performing team, you'll need the whole day. Lunch provided.

No IT experience? No worries!
You do not need to be an IT student or even a student at Mid-State to participate. In fact, not having IT experience could be beneficial in completing some of the challenges! Plus, the more diverse your team is, the more bonus points you’ll receive. (For example, non-IT program students, combination of Mid-State and UW-Stevens Point students, etc.)
