Honor Students Don’t Retreat; They Charge!

I’ve decided to write this post soldier-style.

Left. Right. Left. Right. At-ten-hut! What’s our motto?

“Oh, Captain, my Captain!”

Reporting for duty. Last Friday, the Honor Students charged into the wilderness of the SUU Cabin to spend one night and one day there with their fellow comrades (students). Training consisted of an intense volleyball match where we kept scores (because Honor Students are great at math), learning to ride unicycles (physics), singing Demi Lovato’s “Skyscraper” (while totally skewing the high notes), patrolling the trail and riverbed (hiking), eating the food supply that consisted of hot dogs, beans, chips and smores (your typical camping food), dancing randomly in the parking lot (preparing for spontaneity), and star gazing (for incoming invaders).

Okay, back to normal writing. That was me, trying to spice up this post with some humor. If the parentheses bothered you, sorry.

The Honors Charge is an event that the Honors Program hosts at the SUU Cabin for Honor Students. It’s a chance for the faculty and students to not only bond, but to also enjoy a mini-vacation. It was a pleasure to be able to be there with students as they made new friendships and helped old ones grow deeper. I desperately needed that vacation for relaxation. The last four weeks have been insanely busy, but good.

If you ever have a chance to be in Cedar or anywhere near in the vicinity, please stargaze. Stargazing in Cedar City is phenomenal. You can see the milky way and SO many twinkling stars. I love it! It’s practically indescribable. You just have to see it for yourself.

P.S. The Honors Program is awesome.

P.S.S. I have zero pictures because I was having such a great time I forgot to take some. But I may come back and post some up whenever the Honors Program posts them up on Facebook.
