Check in on Foursquare, enter for a chance to win a Kindle Fire

Bruin Blast, Kellogg Community College’s annual welcome back event for students, runs today from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and in addition to getting free T-shirts, food and more, the event also marks the start of the college’s first Foursquare special!

Beginning today, students with a current Kellogg Community College ID who check in at any five of Kellogg Community College’s 18 official Foursquare locations can be entered into a drawing for a Kindle Fire!

Here’s how to participate:

Download the Foursquare app by searching for it in your favorite app store (it’s free to download) then use your phone to check in at any Kellogg Community College campus or academic building to unlock the special (see the college’s official locations listed below to make sure you check in at the right ones).

Show the clerk at the Student Life desk in room 109 of the Ohm Information Technology Center the screen featuring the unlocked special and get entered into the drawing.

The first 50 participants who unlock the special will also receive a free USB wristband!

The special begins NOW and will end on Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2012. The Kindle Fire drawing will take place during the Student Life coffeehouse performance on Oct. 16.

*NOTE: This promotion is only available for Kellogg Community College students who have a current Kellogg Community College ID. Individuals may unlock the special multiple times but will only receive one wristband and one entry into the Kindle Fire drawing.*
