PITTSBORO – In spite of its benign name, the “Tiki Island” climbingrnwall warded off would-be scalers during Spring Activity Day at CentralrnCarolina Community College’s Chatham County Campus.

Therninflated, 28-foot “wall” defeated most who tried to climb it, but evenrnthose who didn’t make it to the top came down with smiles on theirrnfaces: the fun was in the attempt. 

Thernwall was one of the activities at the April 17 afternoon event,rnsponsored by the campus’ Student Government Association and designed torngive students an opportunity to have fun, relax and bond with eachrnother.

“It’s a great way to relax fromrnthe stress of classes and hang out with friends,” said associate degreernstudent Heather Allen, of Pittsboro.

Some of the faculty also got into the fun.

“ActivityrnDay is great,” Emily Shepard, CIT instructor, said, even after beingrndefeated by the wall. “It’s a great way for students and faculty torninteract.”

The activity featured, inrnaddition to the wall, a 24-foot inflated slide, bingo, caricaturesrndrawn by artist Bruce Stevenson, of Raleigh, and lots of free food.

CraigrnDeShon, a freshman from Pittsboro, summed up the students’ feelingsrnabout the last item with,  “I think free food is awesome!”
