BIG NEWS FOR THE FROSH!
Don’t you wish you could have gone on a sweet freshman orientation trip? Well, if you are an incoming freshman this fall, you will be able to! The Outing Club has been working with school administrators to bring back the outdoor orientation trip, and it’s finally gonna happen. If you are interested in helping plan or lead one of these trips, email Olivia at omiller@wes.
I heard that this Friday is going to be the most gorgeous sunrise ever in the history of sunrises ever. They’ve done studies that say watching the sunrise increases longevity and improves your sex life. And makes you much cooler. So after decades of planning, we’re going to Miller’s pond to eat some sweet snacks. Everyone bring a snack, man. We’ll meet at Outhouse on Friday morning 5:51am and be back before 9am classes. Bring a car if you have one. Email Galen at gdegraf@wes with questions.
CHAT WHILE YOU STROLL AT CHATFIELD HOLLOW STATE PARK
Come hike with us this Saturday at Chatfield Hollow State Park. Crawl out of your musty dorm room to trek over some covered bridges and wander along some meandering streams. Meet at Outhouse on Saturday, February 23rd at 1:30pm with weather appropriate hiking gear and a car if you have one. Email Beth at eogata@wes with questions.
SLEEPING GIANT STATE PARK
Come for a fun hike to Sleeping Giant State Park – apparently, from New Haven, these little mountains sort of look like a big sleeping dude. Or something like that. Yalies are weird. Anyway, there’s a sweet castle thing at the top, and a great view. This won’t be a super challenging hike, so if you haven’t been on an outing yet because your cardio fitness is a little subpar, fear not! Email Elaine (elauriat@wes) if you’re coming, if you have a car, or if you have questions! Meet at Outhouse, Sunday, February 24th, 1pm.
SPRING BREAK IN THE WHITE MOUNTAINS!!!
If you’re interested in some sweet hiking, possibly backpacking, in NH’s White Mountain/Pemiqesset Wilderness, come to the meeting Tuesday (26th) 8pm @ Outhouse. We’re leaving Saturday March 8th and returning the 11th or 12th (depending on which trail(s) we hike). We’ve got 5 spaces so this meeting is REALLY important in determining who is coming. If you’ve already emailed me, still come on Tuesday. If you can’t make the meeting, email me (Anna) at araithel@wes.
