Owl Expedition was my first step to getting involved on campus and being more social.
I am a shy person and it takes a while for me to open up. This trip was a great beginning
to college. I made so many friends and learned about all the ways I can get involved
on campus. It was such a great experience and I was able to create long lasting friendships.
Owl Expedition was one of the best choices I made going into my college years. I met
some of my closest friends there, which I hang out with all the time. It helped me
to get connected with the campus and feel more comfortable going into college, especially
since I didn’t know anyone. At first I was a little reluctant to go, but once I got
there, I was so glad I signed up. I would recommend it to anyone because there is
something for everyone there. The whole trip is a blast and totally worth going.
2017 Participant / 2018 Flight Crew Leader
With my first year of college quickly approaching, I found myself wishing for an opportunity
to be a part of something bigger than who I was. When I heard about Owl Expedition,
I knew this was what I was looking for. Over the span of four days I witnessed a group
of strangers become a family. Together we made lasting memories, experienced new adventures,
and created friendships that have helped us through the difficulties college can bring.
Not only did I make strong relationships with fellow incoming freshmen, but I also
made connections with KSU student leaders and staff, which has given me the resources
to make my freshman year a success. With Owl Expedition, I have found my voice at
Kennesaw State University.
“Owl Expedition originally caught my eye because I like the outdoors and saw that
it included white water rafting. I'd been rafting a few times before and knew it'd
be a good way to connect and meet with people since going into Kennesaw, I didn't
know many people. I had no idea what to expect besides the white water rafting and
was surprised by how fun the experience was. I met a lot of great people there and
my color group was awesome; I still talk to a majority of them today. From the very
first night of experiencing the fun, excitement, and thrill it really put me in the
mindset of being in college instead of high school. That same night I knew I wanted
to pursue becoming a Flight Crew Leader and give that same experience I got to upcoming
freshmen but make it even better. To my surprise some of my best memories from the
camp weren't even from white water rafting. Anybody who is an upcoming first-year
student should attend!”
