    Emily's Bio:
    I am a senior majoring in communication and minoring in photography. The College of St. Scholastica has been a great place for me to be throughout my college journey. I am fascinated by the world and am currently studying abroad at Regent's University London in England. I live for the little things and the adventures I stumble upon everyday. In my free time I enjoy practicing yoga, listening to and writing music, taking pictures, and exploring.

Adventure Activity Day with OP!

 

Today was another beautiful summer-like day here in Duluth. Fortunately, I was able to spend nearly the whole day outside. We, Outdoor Pursuit, spent the day learning and practicing Adventure Activities in preparation for an event we are doing with Upward Bound next weekend. These activities have a focus in team building, communication, and leadership, and we are planning to share them with the Upward Bound students.

We practiced activities ranging from ice breakers to team building exercises that required a great amount of critical thinking. Most of the activities involve bringing the group into a state of disequilibrium, or in other words out of a comfort zone. This can be anything from a goofy name game to a tricky team challenge. Through the various activities, there are a few common goals: help individuals become more comfortable working in a team, encourage efficient communication, learn to compromise, gain confidence in themselves, and have fun doing so.

After a few hours of Adventure Activities, we spent some time bonding as a group. We grilled some food and enjoyed the remainder of the day outside. There were many laughs had, smiles shown, and food eaten. I am glad to be part of such a wonderful group of people here on campus.
