In Search of Doubloons

What's a doubloon, you ask? A doubloon is a gold coin formerly used in Spain and Spanish America, pronounced dŭ-blōōn. A doubloon is definitely worth collecting! We have strategically placed 31 doubloons around the University's web site. By finding and then clicking on these various doubloons, you will learn of the many services and resources available to you. Take advantage of the HINTS listed below; we've thrown in a few easy ones.

doubloon-badgeCollecting doubloons can also lead you to badges. Find 8 doubloons and you'll earn the Pieces of Eight badge. Find 20 and you're a Treasure Seeker. Find all 31 and you've become the Doubloon Hunter, and earned the most prestigious badge of them all! Learn more about badges at the Pirate Patch Blog. Good luck and happy hunting!
