One of the more extensive events Campus Recreation Services organized as part of the College’s Weeks of Welcome program was the “Play in the Park Day” held at the James Island County Park on Saturday, September 25.
Eighty-seven students participated during the day by climbing at the 50′ climbing wall and bouldering cave, trying to cross the Catwalk and the Leap of Faith on the high ropes course, testing their marksmanship on the archery course, and getting out on the lake to stand-up paddleboard. In between were chances to play outdoor games such as sand volleyball, 2 v 2 soccer, spikeball, horseshoes, Connect 4, and several others.
As an added convenience, the James Island County Park staff ran a shuttle service that 50 of the students took advantage. The first activities began at 1 p.m. and by 6 p.m. most were satisfied to call it a day.
The most common question heard throughout the day was, “When are you going to do this again?”
