On Saturday Sept. 15 the men of Koon, Niedfeldt, and Whitley, led by Associate Dean of Men Chief Rogers, will travel to Fort Custer to participate in a group activity designed to be fun while also drawing them closer together.
Dorms will meet at 7:30 a.m. for a bus ride up to the fort, where they will work separately and in teams to complete the activities.
“We’re going to participate in a confidence course,” said Vins Berggren, a resident assistant in Niedfeldt. “It should be very fun.”
Kalamazoo News, citing a Hackett news release, reported that the course involves events such as moving “a 50-gallon drum or 40-pound box…across or over various obstacles.” There are four different stations, the report said.
After completing the course, students will hear from professors, including Professor of Politics Adam Carrington. Carrington will speak on how to develop true male friendships during college.
“I think it will be a great team-building activity,” Niedfeldt Resident Assistant Nick Macaluso said. “I think it will bring us closer to the other dorms and closer to each other.”
