A Day on Paris Lake

Student Life Director, John Spranza, hosted Canoe Day September 27 on Paris Lake at the Floyd campus. Unfortunately, this opportunity was overlooked by most of the student body. However, for those who took part, it was a fun opportunity to experience nature without being overwhelmed by many students.

Cynthia Paz, a chemistry major, said, “It’s like we are canoeing by ourselves.” Such appreciation is why these events are put together. The goal is to encourage students to go outside and enjoy more of what the college has to offer.

“We try to encourage the students to explore the lake as much as possible,” said Spranza. The trails and lake are always open. Students are encouraged to walk the paths and canoe, kayak, or paddleboard on Paris Lake.
