Campion Seniors took two days off of classes to visit colleges last week. Most of the students went to Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska for the annual College Preview days which included interactive activities such as a campus tour, team building scavenger hunt, and time to hangout with friends while experiencing college life.
During the stay at Union College the senior classes participated in several tours and explored different academic programs in breakout sessions.
Union College staff not only planned an academic tour but they gave the visiting students the chance to experience the college town through a scavenger hunt. The preview students ran through downtown Lincoln to complete the scavenge receiving a variety of prizes.
Andrew Barr, senior, expressed, “The highlight of my trip to Union was being able to see a bit of what campus life looks like at a college.”
The evening activities included swimming or hanging out in the student center, playing pool and foosball. “I liked hanging out with my friends in the student center after the events and it was amazing being able to grow closer to my classmates and the other visiting students. ” shared Madison Ramirez, senior.
For worship on Friday night, students gathered together in the UC Church with a spiritually uplifting praise team and a testimony from a Union staff member who also graduated from Union College. He shared the importance of letting God guide and having Him as the foundation in life.
Saturday morning began with an impactful Sabbath School followed by a church service. Students were able to have a day to rest and as the Sabbath ended Union College’s Student Association held a dodgeball tournament for the Saturday night activity.
Some seniors ventured to other schools including Southern Adventist University and Colorado Christian University. Catie Fairfield, senior, reflected, “It was a good opportunity to see other colleges that I was considering.”
College days were the perfect opportunity to guide the senior class in making the important decision of which college to attend. Ramirez concluded, “Visiting Union College helped me to see what my future might look like.”
