Socials / Trips

HIKING

Every fall, BGI goes on a hiking trip to Turkey Run State Park.  We've also done group hiking trips closer to campus at Happy Hollow Park, and are always looking for other chances to get outside and enjoy being in nature.

CHICAGO TRIP

In Spring 2019, BGI took a trip to Chicago to drop off shoes collected on campus so they could be repurposed through the Nike Grind program.  After donating the shoes, we spent the rest of the day exploring downtown Chicago!

Check out the video below Hannah Stringfellow produced with footage from the trip!

DOCUMENTARY AND GAME NIGHTS

BGI members also like to chill and de-stress together!  Every semester, BGI hosts documentary, games, and movie nights to hang out and get to know other students who share similar interests.
