Students engaged in fun water activities during Aqua Wars on Sep. 20 at the University Catholic Center. Members of the University Catholic Community played games, tie-dyed shirts, and held a water gun battle.
“We are just trying to do a community building event,” said campus minister Jeff Hedglen. “Getting the students to have some fun together.”
The event had many activities including a water balloon game; challenging students to pass and catch water balloons without breaking them using towels. They also had dye-filled water guns and wore white shirts to create a tie-dyed effect during the water battles.
“Bonding with the other people and getting to know them is a lot of fun,” said Libby Tatz, linguistics graduate student.” “They are kind of like my second family over here.”
The center members have a lot of things planned for the year, such as their awakening retreat in November, visiting Arbrook Nursing Home and doing a service project every month.
Hedglen says he hopes they take a sense of friendship and community that sends them into the rest of their time here at UTA.
