Students will spend most of Thursday at EOU Base Camp at the Blue Mountain 4-H Center, participating in “Survivor” themed outdoor activities and team building challenges with Mt. Emily as the backdrop. The day concludes back on campus with a game of capture the flag played in the dark and s’mores around a campfire.
“We’re excited to offer a uniquely different schedule this year that introduces students to all the opportunities for outdoor recreation in our area,” said Kathryn Shorts, Week of Welcome coordinator. “Everything we have planned is intended to launch their Eastern experience in the right direction and assist with transitioning to campus.”
The schedule also features guest Will Keim, Ph.D., of Will Keim Speaks! Inc., students-only performances from hypnotist Josh McVicar the Trickster and “GlowRage” paint party thrown by PaintU, complete with a live DJ.
Several athletic events also coincide with Week of Welcome, including men’s and women’s soccer matches on Friday and Saturday, and a football game on Saturday.
