On their third day of orientation, the Class of 2016 participated in a variety of activities designed to strengthen the students’ skills in teamwork, leadership, and service.

One group went to an outdoor adventure course where they completed several ropes activities, including a blind maze and a rope swing. Other groups went to service projects throughout the downtown and Rivermont areas of Lynchburg. Students performed service at the YMCA, Riverside Park, Amazement Square, the Jubilee Family Development Center, the Old City Cemetery, and Point of Honor.

Here are some pictures from the events, but you can find more in a photo album on the College’s Facebook page.
