The second night we walked to our campfire, where we reflected on our time at Peddie, whether it was our second month, second year or fourth year as a Falcon. Coming in as a new sophomore, I faced the challenges of having to integrate myself into the grade, but I had a great deal of support from friends, prefects and dorm supervisors. I still remember my prefects from my sophomore year and have kept in contact with them throughout the years.
At Peddie, you’re so immersed in your work, sports, club activities that you almost don’t have time to think about your home that is 8000 miles away. This long weekend I did a lot of thinking and reflecting because we had free time everyday, which we don’t get much of as seniors at Peddie.
Ending on a brighter and less sentimental note, a smaller group of us experienced the flying squirrel and another rope course activity. They were some of the scariest things I have done in my life, but they were well worth the rush of adrenaline and satisfaction thereafter!
