  • ACommonDisasterACommonDisaster September 2011

  • BeatMaticsBeatMatics September 2011
    I'm at 65 and counting. No luck yet
  • BeerknurdBeerknurd September 2011
    Wow... You sure you don't have any of the other new college badges??
  • Blee September 2011
    I dont have any other college badges and I maybe close to 100 check-ins now and still no badge!
  • DanDan September 2011
    If you have the older college Badges IE Stanford, Harvard, & Syracuse can you unlock this badge or one of the other newer college badges as well?
  • JR1JR1 September 2011
    @Dan The college badges from last year have no effect on the new badges this year. I have all of the ones from last year plus one of the new ones.
  • DanDan September 2011
    Thanks JR! Is the Sun Devil badge considered an old or new college badge?
  • JR1JR1 September 2011
    @Dan the Sun Devil Badge is one of the new ones. The old ones are just Harvard, Stanford and Syracuse all the rest are new.
  • BrandonBrandon September 2011
    Don't forget Princeton... they had a badge as well in 2010.
  • Harpieclan1950 September 2011
    So I don't have any of the other new school badges but I can't get this one. I'm at like 80 check in's help someone call foursquare SOS
  • Harpieclan1950 September 2011
    So I figured it out... On there page they have venues that have pictures if you check in to ten of the with the pictures those should give you the badge if not check not then 15. This are the secret places for foursquare which are posted on the schools campus I called a friend who goes there and it works lol yay got that badger badge woot woot!
  • aklmannaberg September 2011
    @JR1 So if I have the Sun Devil badge I cannot get another of the new ones correct?
  • BeerknurdBeerknurd September 2011
    @aklmannaberg That is correct.
  • ray_palmer September 2011
    I'm having the same problem as the rest of you...I tried Harpieclan1950's instructions to no avail :/ I'm at 55+ check-ins and still no badge... (this is also my first post on here, so hello to everybody)
  • JR1JR1 September 2011
    @ray_palmer basic ?'s I have to ask just to make sure...
    1- Are you following University of Wisconsin–Madison
    2- Do you have any of the other "college" badges released this year?
    3- Did you allow for travel time and get points for all your checkins?

    Other then that I am not sure why you did not unlock this badge. I tested the unlock method suggested and was able to unlock the badge. I did 5 checkins a day for 3 days when I tested it.
  • ray_palmer September 2011
    yeah, I'm following UW-Madison and allowing points for all the check-ins. The only college badges I have are the ones from last year...Syracuse/Harvard/Stanford. Do you think I should delete all the check-ins and restart after 24 hours?
  • ticca_vticca_v September 2011
