Arriving on campus at Bemidji State University, students had the opportunity visit with an Admissions Rep. and the TRiO Director. After a lively and humorous session, students headed out on a tour of the campus. Students saw academic buildings, the bookstore, athletic fields, the American Indian Resource Center, Hobson Memorial Union (where you can get lots of different food...), and ended up at the Gillett Recreation Center for a fun afternoon! After eating lunch students had the opportunity to try out the pool, complete with diving boards and spend an hour rock climbing on the "rec centers" indoor rock wall. BSU had some great staff there to help us out!
Some students had done this before and scrambled up the rock wall to "ring the bell" and others were a little more timid to start- one student even initially said there was no way he was climbing the rock, he finally rang the bell with only minutes left of our visit (AWESOME JOB). It was a great trip!
