Transcript Honors College Welcomes Freshman Honors College builds friendships and teamwork at freshman retreat In the blistering heat of late August, the incoming freshman from the Honors College packed themselves into four school buses and lumbered toward the hills of Navasota, Texas for the Tenth Annual Honors Retreat at Camp Allen. C o n - ceived as an opportunity for freshman to become familiar with the Honors' faculty and upperclassmen as well with one another, the retreat has be- "...the couselors drove us until I was sure we would break...," said Kiernan Mathews. come an important part of Honors' freshmen integration into college life. The students and faculty spent three days listening, communing and playing. "Most of what we did was goof off. We played soft- ball Thursday afternoon during free time, but even the scheduled activities, like the scavenger hunt, were fun," said Freshman Todd Bredbeck. Incoming freshman attended "interest" sessions during the day, which dealt with everything from writing their first English paper to living in the Residence Halls. In the evenings recreational activities were scheduled, such as a dance, the Honors' Follies and a talent show in which everyone was encouraged to flaunt their talents as singers, comedians, poets and philosophers. "It was an easy audience, they applauded for anything," said Freshman Erin Schaefer. Freshman initiates also had to navigate the Camp Allen Ropes Course which meant an excruciating test of physical endurance and use of teamwork skills. Survival meant putting trust in your fellow freshman as they helped each other swing over canyons with a rope, bridge vast chasms with two-by-fours and balance on suspended tree trunks. "I thought I was going to die out there, the counselors drove us until I was sure we would break. There was no better way to learn team work though," said Freshman Kiernan Mathews. Rather than sleep, many students made nocturnal visits to the three swimming pools at Camp Allen where red eyes and porcupine hairstyles abounded. There was also at least one all-night card game reported. "Sleep? What sleep? This is Honors' Retreat!" said Sophomore Counselor Adam Flick. -Sean Fitzpatrick The Honors College practices an activity that works on their teamwork skills. Photo courtesy Honors College Ted L.
