Get In The Game With The Hurricane Happenings App

The Hurricane Happenings program is BACK and as simple to participate in as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Download our new app.
  2. Attend events and accumulate points by scanning a QR code* with your mobile device (scanner/reader included within the app).
  3. Get Milestone Prizes!

GSW Athletics has teamed up with several departments and organizations on campus, including the Alcohol, Tobacco and Other Drugs task force, to provide a student, faculty, staff and fan incentive program that rewards those who support selected campus events or activities.

Get the new app!

First things first. Head to either the App Store or Google Play Store and download the FREE Hurricane Happenings app! You can get there by clicking on the appropriate button below. A new window will open on your browser that will take you directly to our Happenings app.  


How does the program work?

Ok, now what? Well, those who come to Hurricane Happenings events need to be on the lookout for a posted QR code (most likely at the main entrance) on a sheet like the image below (lower left). Just open the downloaded app, tap "SCAN" on the menu at the top of your screen (see image below - lower right) and scan the code with your phone/mobile device. Immediately start accumulating points that work toward earning prizes!



Here's a look at some of the Milestone Prizes available:

  • GSW Adidas apparel
  • Meet the team, watch from courtside seats and enjoy 2Duke's Bar-B-Que, popcorn and soft drinks for up to six (6) people at a GSW basketball game
  • Team autographed merchandise
  • A Hurricane Birthday Party
  • Throw out a first pitch at a GSW baseball or softball game
  • Participate in a ceremonial "opening tip" at a GSW basketball game
Once enough points are earned, you can instantly reserve your prize with the tap of a button!

When can I earn points?


Upcoming events scheduled to offer Hurricane Happenings points will be posted in a drop-down menu on the home page of the app (see image below) along with a menu for "Milestone Prizes" and a "Leader Board" so you can see where you stack up in points against other Hurricane fans. Links to the GSW Athletics Facebook, Twitter and YouTube pages are also provided. 



* A QR Code (abbreviated from Quick Response Code) is the trademark for a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code). Users with a camera phone equipped with the correct reader application (included in the app, see above) can scan the image of the QR Code to display text, contact information, connect to a wireless network, or open a web page in the phone's browser. A unique code will be used for each Hurricane Happenings event or point-earning posting.
