Fall retreat was a WONDERFUL way to relax this weekend! I’ll go through all of the events and things which happened during the weekend! It was sponsored by Cru and featured students from various different universities such as IU, Purdue, Wabash, Valparaiso, and of course Butler! Because of this, I got to meet and become friends with many people from different colleges and had a great time!
Friday: I drove two other people down to Seymour, Indiana to SpringHill Camps. We got there and then had to register and were allowed to sign up for different activities such as zip-lining or wall climbing. Then we were assigned cabins and were bused to our camps, since the camp was extremely large! That night we all got together and listened to a guest speaker and got into our discussion groups to discuss our thoughts about not only religion but also about our views on various world issues. To end the night, everyone was invited to play a mass game of Capture the Flag!
Saturday: Since I slept through most of it, I only have a partial story about today. I was awake from 5:30 AM on Friday to 1:00 AM on Saturday so I was EXHAUSTED! I slept through breakfast and lunch and woke up just in time to get into group discussion and partake in the day’s activities. The majority of the people played in the lake but some decided to stay inside (like me) where it was cool. I mostly played ping pong and foosball with my friends Kevin and Brian.
Sunday: This day was my least eventful day at retreat because I had to leave early. I ate breakfast, which consisted of just a plain bowl of cereal, and left retreat 2 hours early because I had to arrive at Butler by 11 to meet my friend Hayley who was coming in form out of town. Hayley goes to Loyola in Chicago and wanted to see my campus. I took her around Butler and then we decided to eat at Bagel Ripple Deli which is not too far off of campus! We then went to visit our two friends at IUPUI to end the night and we ate at Noodles & Company for dinner! It was my first time eating there and it was delicious!
That was my weekend in a nutshell! Sorry for it being so long! I’ll also be doing a random song of the day to change things up!
