Day 1: H.E.A.R.T. Institute

Posted by: Monica Sowers, Caitlin Crawford, and Garth Sangree

The freshman class arrived at the HEART Institute around noon. Guess what's for lunch - Mystery meat...I mean BBQ rabbit. Yum! After lunch the freshmen split up into 4 groups (Black Out, Survivors, Foreigners, and from Latin America...Las Rosas). They did chores like gardening, feeding animals, cleaning up, and preparing supper. We had a tug of war competition between the groups. The final 2 groups (Foreigners vs. Las Rosas & friends) battled it out over a muddy duck pond. Grant Slagle (Foreigners) got the full experience when he ended up in the pond. We're heading off for a bond fire now! We'll post more tomorrow. P.S. there's no electricity and the bathrooms are a bit of a challenge :)
