Avery Cheeley, a sophomore Mechanical Engineering major, talks about several awesome student events he's enjoyed during this semester and his spring break plans for next week.
Springtime is full of excitement and anticipation here at LeTourneau, not only because of the change in season, but also because it marks the halfway point in the semester. As spring break approaches, I like to think about different activities with which I’ve filled my free-time, such as acousticafe, intramurals, or just hanging with friends.
Yellow Jacket Activities Council (YAC) hosts events nearly every week, including everything from game night, where board games and videogames are organized at different locations on campus so that students can hang out and play games together, to a mid-January late-night Easter egg hunt (I have no idea what the thinking behind this was, but it was a blast). Other activities include an evening at Air-U, a trampoline gymnasium; man hunt, a city-wide scavenger hunt; and humans vs. zombies, a week
where humans avoid being infected by the zombies.
Different floor events can keep you busy as well: Valentine’s day dinner with the sister/brother floor, an all-hall olympic-style competition, and field hockey games are just a few examples of how a floor might grow together through activities.
This spring break I’m going on one of the eight Spring Break Missions Trips that LeTourneau Student Ministries (LSM) organizes. It’s a trip to South Padre Island, where we will give free van rides and pancakes to college students who are there to party as a way of showing them Christ’s love and the Gospel. I can’t wait. :)
