This past weekend the Men’s Dorm held their annual dorm retreat. The weekend started with a worship on Friday evening by Mr. John Boutot, U.S. History teacher and former marine. His worship was about what it means to be a man of God and how to encourage one another on the journey. All devices of the students were taken and wouldn’t be returned until the following afternoon which allowed for the students to interact more with one another. Erick Maldonado, a Resident Assistant in the Men’s Dorm shared, “At first everyone was upset because we lost our devices, but Friday night ended up being one of the best nights we’ve had in the dorm. Guys talked, messed around, but more importantly, we got closer to each other.”
On Sabbath morning, the deans made breakfast and Mr. Boutot continued his worship talk. Then the guys had free time to rest, relax, or play outside. The afternoon consisted of a campus-wide scavenger hunt. The guys had to look all around the campus and take specific pictures that followed the instructions given. Dinner was made and then a sundown worship was given by the Men’s Club Officers. Saturday night the guys headed to Centerra mall and many enjoyed playing glow-in-the-dark mini golf. The weekend closed with pizza and more time spent together with just the guys.
