Sweat Lodge Slated for August

President Nelson is excited about the new crop of Freshmen coming to ETU’s annual Sweat Lodge Orientation.  “We have the largest class of freshmen ever enrolled this year, and I’m sure they will all add to the Raven’s history with pride and honor.”

This year’s Sweat Lodge is the third weekend of August to coincide with dorm check in.    There are three sessions on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evening, in which the new class receive an personal introduction to the campus, our traditions, and expectations.

“It is important that all incoming freshmen attend Sweat Lodge.  They learn about the importance of campus safety, traditions, the Raven’s Honor Code, and fight songs.  They also get teamed into pods to help them make friends and it is also a fun evening of dancing, live music, and free food.”  President Nelson stated that several bands have agreed to play for the event, including local favorite A Jury of Robots.  Students will also meet with Senior Ravens to get their perspective on life on campus and advice on how to be successful in their college careers.

The final events of the evening will take place in the Roost and the party will continue in a lock-in fashion till the following morning, though the rules state that if a student leave the event, they are not allowed reentrance.  President Nelson explained that this is an effort to keep alcohol out of the arena.  “I’m looking forward to a fantastic night of good , clean Raven’s style fun.”
