Carolina Kickoff (Revisited)
Hello everyone! I hope the near-end of your school years are wrapping up nicely!
I was looking back through some of our posts on here and noticed that we didn’t have too much info about Carolina Kickoff. Luckily, I got a nice message on Facebook from one of my friends who participated last year. Here’s what she said:
You spend 3 days at Camp New Hope, a campground close to campus. You stay in cabins that are air-conditioned so it’s comfortable. While you’re there you learn all of the songs and chants for games. The biggest thing is getting introduced to a lot of campus groups (20ish Campus Y organizations and 20ish student groups [student gov, fever, and the like)]. They send representatives and you can ask questions and sign up for listservs. The rest of the time is spent doing bonding exercises with the other campers (skits, scavenger hunts). What I took away from it most was moving into Carolina already knowing 150 first years as opposed to not knowing anyone. I highly recommend it!
So there you have it!
And good luck to everyone taking AP exams in the next two weeks! Don’t stress, eat good food, and sleep.
