CHC Honors Institute Hosts Spring Meet & Greet
Publish Date: March 6, 2023
On Friday, February 3, over seventy members of Crafton’s College Honors Institute participated in a “Meet & Greet” activity that occurs at the beginning of each semester.
The event began with sandwiches, chips, and cookies provided by the Crafton Hills College Foundation.
Lunch was followed by a “sorting” exercise in which the students lined up according to the month and day of their birthdays. Teams of six were formed from the line.
The teams competed for awards in a rousing game of Jeopardy, with categories of movies, music, pop culture, academics, and facts about Crafton. The event ended with a highly competitive team-building engineering challenge. The goal was to build the tallest tower using only uncooked spaghetti, marshmallows, and a yard of masking tape. The winning team’s tower stood an impressive 4’6” tall.
Events like this are part of creating an Honors “community” that is an important part of the program’s success.
