2014 Student/Faculty Retreat
The annual student/faculty retreat was held on Sunday, May 18, 2014. Twenty five members of the Seismo Lab traveled by bus to Big Bear Lake for a day of activities.
The day started with a short hike and ice-breaker games. Lunch was on board the Big Bear Valley's one-of-a-kind tour boat, Miss Liberty, on breathtaking Big Bear Lake with a fully narrated 90 minute guided tour featuring highlights of Big Bear's rich history dating back to 1845. The afternoon was filled with team-building games at Meadow's Edge Park. The day was capped off with dinner at Castaways Restaurant in San Bernardino. The view of the valley was amazing!
A good time was had by all. Pressure's on for next year!
