Keep your calendar open August 2-7 in order to participate in FOOT 2016. This involvement could be for 1 hour, 1 day, or the entire week. Read more below!
Freshman Outdoor Orientation Trip (FOOT) is a pre-college experience that uses God’s creation to draw students closer to God and develop relationships with other students and faculty/staff. The trip prepares them for Ouachita culture and their new responsibilities as adults away from home. Click here to learn more about FOOT.
This year FOOT will take place in the Ouachita Mountains. We will camp on Lake Degray and spend our days climbing, hiking, swimming, canoeing, and serving the community. This is an awesome opportunity to show these new students all that the area has to offer.
The local venue means that you do not have to commit to the entire week to be a part of this experience.
This is a great opportunity for you to get to know some of the incoming Freshmen and for them to see how much OBU faculty/staff cares for them. Below are some examples of how faculty/staff can participate in FOOT:
In the future, I will send out a more detailed list of ways to be involved and how you can sign up. So keep the dates of August 2-7 open and I will contact you with more information.
