Lake Hair, Don't Care

While our students enjoy standard class-related field trips throughout the year, our grade-level overnight trips are unique to Weber. These trips provide opportunities for focused group cooperation, community building, and academics while simultaneously exposing the students to various cultural or historical sites.

This year, Weber's freshman class traveled to Rock Eagle, where they participated in lake assessment field studies, team building challenge courses, and canoeing. The lake assessment field studies cemented the student's understanding of the scientific method and students will continue using the knowledge they gained during the trip with upcoming ecology lessons studying soil and water samples taken during the lake assessment. By taking the trip in the fall and participating in various team-building exercises, students had an early opportunity to develop a strong foundation for collaboration and communication with their peers while giving them a chance to navigate increased personal responsibility.
Thank you to Director of Student Programming Michelle Geppert and Dean of Science Nicole Brite for coordinating all of the trip’s components and faculty members Herschel Revzin, Charlie McQuade, Jordan Crawford, Rebecca McCullough, David Lakin, and Dr. Will Ashby, who joined Michelle to chaperone our students.
