This week, SA Caroline took 10 brave students to a local rock climbing gym. There, students conquered their fears and showed their strength by completing eight different climbs of varying levels, heights, and speeds! We started off with the smaller walls, and quickly made our way to some of the more challenging climbs available in the gym. Conquering fears was made easier by the encouraging words from fellow MAIA students. Cheering each other on throughout the event, MAIA students were supportive, helpful, and talented at this new and exciting sport!
Surrounded by the climbing community of central mass, MAIA students got to participate in a popular New England sport and many saw a future in returning to the gym or joining a climbing gym at their future universities.
