September 6th-8th the Freshman class went down to Croatia for Freshmen Challenge weekend. The Freshman Challenge pushed the class physically and put them out of their comfort zone. They were encouraged to get to know each other through canoeing, rock climbing, cooking chimney cake around a camp fire and helping out each other on the trust walk. Personal devotions and short talks from the leaders also challenged the Freshman to think about the masks/acts they may be using in their life such as perfectionism.
