BHSU Psychology Club's annual rat race fundraiser will be held Feb. 27 in the David B. Miller Yellow Jacket Student Union.

The Black Hills State University Psychology Club will be hosting its annual rat race competition Feb. 27.


Prior to the race, members of the Psychology Cub train rats to run through a large maze as quickly as possible. To make it fun and more interesting, each rat is named after a psychology faculty member.


Students, faculty, and staff can put a wager on the rat they think will go through the maze the fastest. Tickets are available that are used as “bets” to guess the amount of time rats will take getting through the maze. Each rat will be run through the maze twice, timed both times. Prizes will be awarded to the winners, ranging from gift certificates to restaurants as well as items from the University Bookstore.  


Tickets are available in the David B. Miller Yellow Jacket Student Union. The event will take place in the Student Union from 12 to 2 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27.
