A Fish for all weekend Trying to get into the swing of college after the first week lf school was a little easier for the freshmen with the fourth nnual Fish Camp. The camp was introduced in the fall of 979 to help incoming freshmen get better acquainted and orm a bond of unity within the class. During the first week of school the campus buzzed with iuestions and tales about Fish Camp. "Do they really make ou dive into a mud pit?" The camp was more than mud pits, though. Discussion essions and speakers were also a major part of the weekend t Lake Brownwood, where the camp took place. Campers came back to school with new friends, stories ,bout Fish Glympics and the food. "The rolls they feed you, ihey're just . . . oh, those rolls," said one camper. By the third veek of school, the campus had basically two kinds of ireshmen. Those who went to Fish Camp, and those who vished they'd gone. The "I can't believe you missed it" response couldn't help aut make a person feel anti-social. "I waited too late," said john Sikes, regretfully. "The way he guys talked I missed a lot. They got to know a lot more Leople, mostly girls." One freshman coed said she wouldn't have gone, but her sarents had seen an advertisement for it in the mail and sent he money in. "I liked feeling free to talk to anyone," she aid of the camp. Everyone who commented on Fish Camp noted the closeness that the weekend of playtime induced. Kathie Henry said she went because "everybody" went. She said her sister went on the very first freshman retreat and urged Kathie to go. "It helped Cruel get over the homesicknessj' Kathie said. Kathie said the distance and the nervousness feel around upperclassrnen were partially mingling with counselors. "Getting all together one weekend with juniors and seniors made at home, like a big family. And we became more ofa class." The memories of Fish Camp are so good there's even a rush to be a counselor. Paul Hancock said it was difficult keep the number down to a live-to-one camper-to-counselor ratio. -- Amy Haweld X r , g s - i'ii N i . I 'sie yi at '11 swims- J . ,... s.all'2'r 'i r ff? 'J .
