#98 – Conquering Satan’s Cesspool
We believe there are some things students can't learn in the classroom. That's why every summer a group of students and faculty embark on a five day outdoor adventure of river-rafting, rock-climbing, canyoneering, and team-building.

While rafting on the south fork of the American River, students learn to navigate a dubiously named Class III rapid called “Satan’s Cesspool.” A theological metaphor? Perhaps. A great ride? Definitely! But perhaps more importantly, as they share s'mores around the campfire and work together to conquer these thrilling rapids, our students and faculty forge meaningful relationships, something that makes our community unique and strong. You don't have to white-knuckle it through Satan's Cesspool to see it either; you can feel it the moment you walk through the door.
