Maymester Excitement

Eleven students began the Maymester PEHD 252 class as strangers and quickly became best of friends as they participated over the next three weeks in high adventure activities such as sea kayaking to Capers Island for an overnight stay and camping in Kings Mountain State Park to go rock climbing on nearby Crowders Mountain. The only lament was that this whirlwind of exciting activity had to end.
