MAN-FREAKIN'-RESA

By Molly Boes
On August 24, 2011

Mini vans, trailer hitched trucks, and SUVs of several freshmen families

arrived in front of Brockman and Kulhman Hall Thursday and Friday to

gather for the first time as the class of 2015 in the annual events of Manresa.

New to this year's freshmen orientation, Playfair, a company that specializes

in team-building and ice breaking, made its return from a 2010 absence

due to suspicions that the Swine Flu epidemic in 2009 originated from the

close activities of Playfair.

"This year we had to break the class in half to make it possible, which

meant that students had the opportunity to meet half of their classmates,"

junior Bobby Nichols, a Manresa Core member, said.

On Saturday, a new college transition block was also introduced to the

Manresa schedule.

During this block, several on-campus offices were asked to put on presentations

to teach first year students something about college life.

Among these offices were the Bursar's Office, Office of Student

Involvement and Interfaith Community Engagement. These offices gave

presentations on managing finances, getting involved and world religions.

"Overall, it was a great success," Nichols said. "It's something that everyone

involved can really be proud of."
