Block 5 Cook-Out!
One of the best things about being a freshman at Bethel is being a part of freshman blocks. A block is basically a group of people who you have two of your general education classes with; for example, Written Communication and Exploring the Christian Faith. Then, there are two upperclassman mentors for each of the 12 blocks who plan events for the block. This year, I have the opportunity to be a Block 5 mentor. It has been an absolute blast so far! Basically my job as a mentor is to be friends with the incoming freshman… can you say “best job ever”? On Saturday night, my co-mentor and I took our Block to the house of professor Eby, one of their block professors, for a evening of campfire, smores, and games.
It was a riot of a good time! We started out the night eating walnuts from tree, which may or may not have been a good idea. Then we cooked hot dogs over the fire and played some group games like Two Truths and a Lie. Overall, I’d say it was a very fun night!
Top 5 most memorable moments of the night?
1- Learning the professor Eby once had a cow poop in his back pocket.
2- Roasting walnuts, chips, hot dogs, corn, marshmallows, candles and leafs over the campfire.
3- Finding out the hard way that there was a detour that took us completely AROUND Mishawaka.
4- Wishing that a walnut would hit someone on the head so they could win a prize.
5- Finding out that you can make popcorn by roasting a cob of corn!
