Thank you to the upperclassmen who organized and hosted the first annual Landscape Architecture Camping trip! This year it was held in Fort Washington, a lovely state park about an hours drive from Meyerson Hall.
I did not stay for the camping portion of the trip for a few reasons: several of my classmates couldn’t go due to getting sick, my sniffles and worries of getting sick(er), the forecast of rain, and the workload handed out to us this past week. That being said there were still three of us who wanted to go on the hikes and meet the upper classmen.
We enjoyed the company and plant knowledge of our classmates. From hiking to volleyball, helping set up tents (a first for me!), and preparing dinner and smores (also a first) over a fire it was a truly amazing experience! I would love to do it again!
This is one of the nicest ways to meet people and really start to feel like a part of the department. I would reccomend it to anyone coming into the program. It may seem like a lot of work that first week but the break it totally worth it! Your heart, mind, and body will all thank you!!
