On Saturday, August 29, Honors Students in Brock Scholars, Innovations in Honors and the High-Achieving Mocs Living Learning Community gathered for a day of fun and frolic at Camp Vesper Point in Soddy Daisy, TN. To start off the day, students were divided into teams: purple, red, green, pink, and blue. Each team was assigned a station: ultimate Frisbee, soccer, or a puzzle. The teams squared off in fierce competition vying for ultimate bragging rights. After dominating every station the blue team reigned victorious. The most entertaining part of the day was the Chautauqua event, where students shared knowledge, music, poetry, and more. Ukuleles were strummed along to familiar tunes, poetry was read and performed, a story was told by 6 individuals, and interpretive dancing left everyone laughing. After all the bonding activities and lunch, students headed down to the lake to swim, canoe, slide down the water slides, and of course, jump on the blob.
All in all, the day was fun and relaxing, and achieved the ultimate goal of creating camaraderie among students in different honors programs. We’re all looking forward to the next annual Honors College Play Day.
