This past Sunday morning at 5:30 a.m. the seniors loaded the bus for a seven-hour road trip to Union College for Preview Days, where they had a glimpse of what life is like in college.
Upon arrival, the seniors ate dinner in the Union Market, then engaged in a scavenger hunt around downtown Lincoln. After the scavenger hunt, they had free time in the Student Center and participated in activities such as pool, ping pong, and catching up with Campion alumni who are now attending Union.
Ana Segawa, senior, shared, “I really enjoyed the scavenger hunt because it was a great opportunity to see what it was like outside of the college campus. I was curious since I had never been to Lincoln before, and the fun thing was that we got to see so much of downtown in such a short period of time, while running around like crazy and competing to win the game.”
The next morning after breakfast and worship, the seniors attended short seminars that gave them tips on how to pay for college, and met with professors and advisors based on their individual interests. “I enjoyed talking to the different professors and learning more about the career I might study in the future. They gave me great advice and helped me out a lot,” said Nimsi Quinonez, senior.
For lunch, the seniors went to HuHot, a buffet-style restaurant where the students picked out raw ingredients and the chefs cooked it right in front of them on a large grill. After lunch, they loaded the bus for the seven-and-a-half hour long bus ride back to Campion.
“Although the trip to Union College was fast and furious, it was a great experience spending more time bonding with our class, getting to see Lincoln and experience college life up close,” concluded Haley Beckermeyer.
