Moving in is difficult. Along with goodbyes and deciding how to best arrange your room, one has to acclimate to a new culture and, when moving into the Quad, meet more than 140 new people! Thankfully, the Honors Village has created CORE to help. This year, students spent the morning learning about opportunities and expectations of UHP students including undergraduate research, academic leadership, and village life. As an active and involved group of students, many of our freshmen took advantage of these opportunities to share their own experiences and expectations with their peers. The afternoon took a different turn with large group games followed by Amazing Race: Honors Village. The teams exceeded expectation finishing almost all tasks under the time limit. Challenges ranged from making paper airplanes, to figuring out how many bricks make up Reynolds Coliseum, to lifting a bucket of water from a no-step zone using only string. While some of the games may seem a little ridiculous, they were planned to break barriers and walls and to promote the formation of friendships. Through these experiences, a new community was formed and the Honors Village’s phenomenal culture was built on to incorporate a new generation. Staff and students who helped run CORE were amazed by the energy and enthusiasm of our entering class and are looking forward to all of the incredible accomplishments we are sure will happen this year!
