“Make like Adam Savage and Jaime Hyneman and bust the myths that pose to be true at TRU while exploring the university and what it has to offer,” say organizers.

Costumed characters will be helping visitors to explore myths such as “broken mirror, seven years bad luck” — “knock on wood” — “bad luck comes in threes” — “black cat crossing your path” — and “unlucky 13.”

“Faculty and staff at TRU are creating myths that with be busted, proven or plausible by participants,” says Jacquie Johnston, TRU marketing and recruitment co-ordinator.

“The event falls on the 13th in 2013 so superstitions come into play! Actors will be representing various superstitions a persuading participants to attempt certain Myths.

“The event is open to the public and will be lots of fun. People will be able to tour the University and ask any questions regarding programs and services we offer at TRU.”

The evening will also be full of giveaways and a pair of Beats by Dre will be up for grabs.
