On Friday, July 26th, students took to the Residential Quad to prove their might against their friends in a game of kickball. The teams were divided in a manner that allowed people from different programs and halls to intermingle with one another. For some students, this was their first moment returning to the kickball field since their glory days in elementary school, while others had never heard of the game and were introduced to this classic American childhood game. Each team fought to be the champions, but only one team came out on top (congratulations to Team Justin).
Slowly, adventurous students splintered off into playing other games as well; the quad was filled with students competing in soccer, walking a slackline, and playing kickball. Gentle music filled the air, and everyone felt an ambience of relaxation and joy.
