We came across this on the Vassar Live Journal Community:
"There was a second life meet-up yesterday for 2012ers on the top of Vassar Castle. Rich Horowitz (Gandolf Twine) released two snitches and the two people who caught the snitch the 10th time got to choose their dorm (we did it again tonight). Also on the Vassar Sorting Hat group, 3 people are chosen at random and get the opportunity to choose their house. I think a total of 7 of us are going to get to choose."
Huh? We don't know too much about Second Life, but we certainly had no idea this was going on. It's pretty amusing how it's been incorporated into choosing a dorm.
