Two communities came together for fun and problem-solving this weekend at the Allerton Low Ropes Course. Students from both the Innovation and Sustainability LLCs traveled to Allerton to complete team-building activities together. The students shared their talents for brainstorming, trial-and-error, and problem-solving to great success.
18 students braved the rain on Saturday in order to work together to complete challenges that made them think about collaboration, cooperation, and leadership and ways in which they could apply those skills to everyday life. Students led blindfolded partners through the woods, balanced as a group on a giant teeter-totter, and swung through a course of hanging tire swings, and in doing so reflected on their roles as group members and as individuals.
By the end of the day, two communities had come together as one, with residents of Innovation and Sustainability supporting and encouraging one another. Students fostered an atmosphere of support rather than competition, and were able to successfully complete all of the activities presented to them at Allerton.
It was great to see students from both of our communities working together and having a good time!
