Columbus To-Do List Spring Semester 2016
This semester I have chosen to take on the goal of attending at least three OAC clinics. The ultimate goal is to learn and grow in outdoor adventure skills. Overall with this choice I hope to gain knowledge in other aspects for outdoor adventures, on top of adding skills and fun to my time here this semester. The clinics offered by OAC range in many different aspects for the outdoors between rock climbing, and kayaking, etc. I am excited to learn new skills and be active in them. To see another side to what my college offers, not just scholarly knowledge in my classes but skills and tools I can apply outside on adventures if I so choose to explore more.
At the time being I have been able to complete one of the 3 OAC clinics so far. I was fortunate enough to partake in the Belay clinic with fellow ENR scholars. The class began with the basics that intern became applied to when we go to go to the rock wall and experience it firsthand. I enjoyed that the first 30 minutes of our hour clinic was small group sessions getting to learn the equipment and skills that will be useful and are key to when you belay. After our lesson we were able to get hands on experience individually within our group. Along with my friends I had a wonderful memorable time that I was able to attain the skill and have a laugh along with others. From the clinic I am now able to go become belay certified which I plan to do soon. My first clinic has opened my eyes to some lead roles in the activities we perform and I am excited looking forward to the certification test and to partake in more clinics.
