Last week I went with my roommate to watch the men's Track and Field events at Concordia's Seafoam Stadium. Multiple events were going on at once, but we mainly watched pole-vaulting. We watched athletes from several different schools run as fast as they could, stick their long poles into the ground and fly into the air over the horizontal bar. Despite their best efforts, most of the time the athletes did not clear the bar, but instead knocked it to the ground.
This activity does not relate directly to Honors, at least not in terms of curriculum. It does relate in that part of being in the Honors Program is being part of a family, and members of a family support one another. Attending athletic events shows support for student athletes, and is an important part of making Concordia more than just a physical location for taking classes.
As I watched the Track and Field events, I realized how many things are going on at Concordia at any given moment. Had I not looked up the schedule and walked over to the stadium, I would never have known what was going on that day. It makes me wonder how many other events I miss out on by not intentionally seeking them out.
