Blue Devil Productions has hidden a medallion somewhere on campus. Use the hints that will be posted on our Homecoming Website to find the medallion first. There will be a prize awarded to the first person to find the medallion. Eric Dittleman - Ever wonder what it would be like to know what someone else was thinking? What if you knew exactly what someone else was going to do before they did it? Eric Dittelman knows what that’s like and has been reading minds at theaters, colleges, comedy clubs, and corporate events all across the country. Often known by just his surname, Dittelman combines amazing mind reading with stand - up and improv comedy. In 2012, he blew audiences away as the first ever mind reader on NBC's "America's Got Talent" where he was a season 7 semi-finalist and judges' favorite. He has since appeared on "Ellen", “Live with Kelly and Ryan” and “Penn & Teller: Fool Us" where Penn called his act “bordering on genius!” He’s also been featured in "Entertainment Weekly", "Rolling Stone", and even "The National Enquirer". Event is first come, first serve, and will be held in the Great Hall.
Ryan Kelly - (Youth Pastor Ryan) - Ryan Kelly was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri where he started comedy as an improviser. He was trained at schools such as IO, Second City, UCB and Groundlings. He then ventured off to college where he wanted to try new exciting things, and thus he began his foray into performing stand-up comedy. He is most known for his presence on TikTok with 4.3 million followers. Ryan can now be found in Hollywood, California where he is a regular host and comedian at Flapper’s in Burbank.

Event is first come, first serve, and will be in the Great Hall.
