On March 28, in celebration of Easter, the Quad was littered with Easter eggs. Placed by Metz workers, eggs contained various items, such as jelly beans and fidget toys. Amongst the hidden eggs were a few golden ones containing a gift card for a free latte from the Grinds. By mid-afternoon, most of the eggs were found due to their open hiding spaces

Two members of the Pleiad who were adamant that they would “win” the unwinnable Easter egg hunt said they had a blast.

Ypsilanti senior Justin Johnson also participated in the egg hunt but said he wanted more information and publicity. 

“I feel like there could have been more specifics,” Johnson said of the Easter egg hunt.

Mongolia first-year Enkhnomin Nasanbayar said the egg hunt was “remarkable” to her. 

“In the morning I saw lots of them,” Nasanbayar said. “It was really funny because we don’t celebrate Easter in Mongolia.
