Rise and Shine

Last year, third-years Clayton Dahm, Ben Constantino, and Dave Wilson chronicled Dodd-Mead's 2012 Kangeiko participation. Take a look back as you set your alarm clocks and get inspired for a week of early mornings. The house, located in Burton-Judson, has taken the prize for the highest participation for the past 15 years. 

If you haven't heard, Kangeiko is a week-long winter celebration held each year. Activities start at 6:00 A.M. each morning with a few laps around the gym and a series of morning stretches. The participants practice their yoga, performing sun salutations in the gym before breaking out for fitness classes. On Friday, the participants trudge out to the shore of Lake Michigan to salute the rising sun. 

If mornings aren't your thing, there are still lots of Kuvia-related activites that don't start before the sun rises, including s'mores in Hutch Courtyard and Hot Chocolate Night in Alumni House.
