Crates, Shapes, but No Birthday Cakes - Final Event for 2015

Our group of ProRangers has been back together for the fall semester at Temple University. It is amazing to have a group of people by your side for the ebbs and flows of being back at school. Whether we are all in Philadelphia or scattered across the U.S., we always have a shoulder to lean on.
 During the semester, we meet at least once a month for some sort of activity. The most recent activity involved welcoming the new cohort. 
To the new cohort, Welcome to the ProRanger Program, Cohort 5! I hope that the new cohort will reach the amount of trust, friendship and group cohesion that I have felt with the my fellow ProRangers in Cohort 4. The best part about being in this program is the family bond that forms over time. For Cohort 4, it all started at leadership camp, where we lifted each other up, physically and mentally. Sometimes, I just have to let my squad carry me, when barriers emerge (see below - myself being carried on a chair).
I look forward to what the future has in store for us, like problem-solving activities and emerging from uncomfortable dynamics that involve not being able to stand inside your own crate (see below).

Thank you for reading! Stay tuned - I heard that walls will be climbed in January!
