Sweet September: Student Activities fills calendar with exciting events

by Tina Clark

The month of September will usher in another series of fun-filled activities for the students of Liberty University. Associate Director of Student Activities Alese Chandler and her staff have come together once again to produce enjoyment and excitement for the student body.

“I think a lot of people complain that there is nothing to do, but I think that there is a lot of stuff to do,” freshman Jenna Krupp said.

September will be highlighted by two trips to go river rafting. The first weekend outing will occur Sept. 12-13. The other will take place Sept. 26-27.

“This trip is the most exciting trip we offer, and I can tell you that I’m looking forward to it,” Chandler said.

For the two trips, students will be traveling to Appalachian Bible College Alpine Ministries (ABC). They will be staying in cabins on the campsite belonging to ABC. On the night of arrival they will have a campfire, and the following day will be spent rafting along the river. That night will mark the return back to campus.

“Trust me, you will sleep like a baby the night you return,” Chandler said.

There will be select spots available for the rafting trips. While the trip itself will be free, a deposit is requested in order to hold a spot. Students are asked to contact the Student Activities office for more details at 434-592-3148.

A hike up Sharp Top Mountain will take place on Sept. 27 for those who like their fun a little more vertical. The morning hike will allow participants to get a 360-degree view of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
