    Did You Know?

    The UofL community has caught Pokémon fever, with several spots around campus offering beacons as part of Nintendo’s new Pokémon Go mobile game. To play, users download the app and use their mobile phones to find and “catch” different types of virtual Pokémon characters. Hot spots on campus include the Ekstrom Library, the SAC bridge, behind Grawemeyer Hall, and in front of the Brandeis School of Law. Photos of users playing around campus can be found on UofL’s Facebook page
