Friday, November 9, the NCSU (North Carolina State University) cross country recreation team met on campus to drive up to Lexington, Kentucky. The group drove nine hours through North Carolina and West Virginia. Early Saturday morning the first races were held in minus four degrees celsius.
The afternoon after the last races were finished, the entire team of about 25 students went to a restaurant to celebrate with a much needed hot lunch. Sunday, November 11 began the ride back to North Carolina. Before leaving Kentucky, the group stopped by the Harland Sanders Café Museum, home of the famous Kentuckian, Colonel Sanders, the founder of KFC.
It was a great weekend to see nearby states and to hang out with other students at NC State.
Gustav Hakegard, one of the participating SKEMA students on SKEMA's Raleigh campus explained: “I saw the video about the campus before arriving, and a student had told me, 'get involved with NCSU students'…I did just that and it has exceeded my expectations, I’m so glad that I got involved, everyone should do this.”
