A group of EEB-ers (and friends) went rafting on the Ocoee last weekend. The trip was organized by Zach Marion, a grad student in the Fitzpatrick lab who is also a raft guide for RaftOne (http://www.raft1.com/). Everyone who participated had an awesome time and are eager to do it again. A lot of first-year students came out, and last week’s departmental speaker (Eric Sotka) went, too. Such trips are great for building cohort bonds and promoting future collaborations within the department. May there be many more EEB/GREBE-organized trips like this in the future!
