HINU Student Activities and Recreation Department took students to the KC Royals game Friday as part of the many activities they host for students each semester.
The department funds these trips through a portion of the activity fee that students pay each semester and is used to give back to the students through various activities, such as trips to watch the Royals, free movie tickets, and even a trip to the Kansas City Zoo coming up soon.
The events are open to all students, but each one has a different reason for attending. Taylor said he attends the functions to get the most value out of the activity fee that he pays. Cory explained that he likes going to these events with other Haskell students instead of by himself, and Kris simply said peer pressure made him come – his friends encouraged him to join in on the trip.
No matter the reason for going, one thing is for sure – it’s great to see so many freshmen getting involved on campus and these types of events really encourage them to leave their dorm rooms and participate in healthy, positive activities.
The next trip planned is to the KC Zoo on Sept. 28.
