TAG Day FAQ

My Instagram profile is PRIVATE, how can I be sure my hashtags get counted?

Due to Instagram’s privacy policy, your profile must be made public for your submission to count! Also, don’t forget to use the hashtag #radfordtagday and follow @radfordu.

I am already following @radfordu on Instagram do I need to unfollow/refollow @radfordu?

No, you do not have to unfollow then “refollow” @radfordu, but to be sure your posts get counted in the competition and due to Instagram’s privacy policy, your profile must be made public for your submission to count! Also, be sure to use the hashtag #radfordtagday. For added assurance that your post is seen, feel free to tag @radfordu.

Can I compete with my friends/organization?

Absolutely! Students may participate in the scavenger hunt individually or with a friend, but the prize – lunch or tickets to watch a basketball game with President Hemphill – is subject to space available.

How do I pick a fund if I win?

If you are the lucky scavenger hunt winner, congratulations and thank you for competing! We will contact you and work with you to find an existing fund, managed by the Radford University Foundation, which best fits your passion.

What about the lawn signs on campus?

Thanks for noticing! The lawn signs you see across campus are helping us spread the word about Radford University’s generous supporters. Although these are not included in the requirements for the scavenger hunt, they do carry important messages, some similar to the ones you will find on the tags during your hunt. However, there are a couple that carry a unique message … can you find them? (Note: There are no bonus points for finding these, but you just may learn something you did not know about the impact of Radford University’s valued supporters)
