Escape From Reality @ HackTheU!

Presented by Galileo

October 5th & 6th, 2019  SLC Marriott at University Park

Thank you for coming! Check back for more events!

What have you always wanted to create?

Picture this: 24 hours to build anything you want, surrounded by tech enthusiasts from all skill levels with free breakfast, lunch, dinner, and all the snacks and caffeine you can eat! Don’t think you can build anything? That’s fine with us! Use this opportunity to learn something new or expand your skills.

But wait, that’s not all! We’ll also have workshops, speakers, and activities throughout the night. For the teams who want to compete, we will be providing an abundance of prizes!
