Class of 2013 takes off... and aims high!

The new crew of Loyalist PR students got off to a great start this week... culminating in a vigorous game of beach volleyball (with apologies to Devin, who seemed to take all the hits!).

Kudos to all the participants and members of the cheering squad. Let's keep up the energy and enthusiasm as the months progress -- it's going to be a great year!

Volleyball was a blast! My track pants, and knee had better days, but it was fun. Thanks to all who let me play. I am feeling my age in this class, but everyone has been brilliant so far, and I think we are developing some friendships. This adventure is going to be fun!

Volleyball was an excellent idea for us to mingle, work as a team, and have fun in a social setting! I definitely appreciated the chance to relieve some stress from the first week at a new college. I recommend we do something like this again! After our first week, I really look forward to working with everyone this year!

The volleyball was a fantastic end to the first week of this new program and new group of students. I sincerely hope we keep up with the class sports/activities.... personally I'm voting for Capture The Flag next time!

Volleyball was such a great way to get to know everyone outside the classroom setting! I definitely agree that we should make a routine out of this and plan a class activity as often as we can. Im looking forward to an awesome school year with everyone :-)

We had a great time at volley ball and that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Don't worry, all war wounds from volley ball are healed and ready for tomorrow's classes!

See you all bright and early tomorrow! We got an amazing group this year.

I think it would be a great idea to together outside of class every once in a while to do something active and social, it's a great way to let off steam and get to know people!

I dumped a lot of sand out of my pockets after that game. Can we make this a weekly thing?
