Comedian Stephen Colbert will be dropping by the University of Pittsburgh Jan. 18, the reward for four engineering grad students who cracked the ridiculously difficult "Colbert Super PAC Super Fun Pack" puzzle last year.

"We were used to the frustration of solving puzzles," said Daniel Stough, a Penn Hills native who recently acquired his masters degree.

The others solving the treasure hunt puzzle, which led them to a field in Illinois, were Justine Buchman of Saylorburg, Pa.; Daniela Aizpitarte of Eagle, Idaho; and Benjamin Zaczek of Higganum, Conn.

The appearance by the star of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" is not open to the public, although Pitt students and faculty with valid university I.D. will have the chance at 10 a.m. today to queue for tickets. Doors open an hour in advance of the 2 p.m. event next Friday at the Carnegie Music Hall.
