We are excited about the staff ride!


Last week, Dr. Roth, Dr. Stout and I took a little preparatory field trip to Gettysburg to plan the upcoming staff ride.

We toured the battlefield and picked out the spots where the most important decisions were made.  We climbed very tall towers to survey the terrain and crouched in grass on our stomachs to get a first-hand feel for the cover and the dead space in an area.  And we look forward to making our students do this too :)

Event details are here.  Sign-up for the event is now closed, but if you are interested, there will be more opportunities like this in the future, so keep your ears open.

 Be prepared to climb this!
