National Hammock Day!

July 22nd 

Happy National Hammock Day! This day is very special to me now. A year ago I had no idea how to hammock or the positive implications of hammocking. After months of hard work as a Senator, I helped bring hammock stations to Biola University. I had heard lots of students complain about not being able to hammock on campus but nobody knew why. I did some research and found out that you can not hammock on a tree at Biola University due to liability issues and the harm it causes to the trees. This got me thinking, what else can we do then? Student’s really want to hammock and maybe I can help make this happen. I did countless hours of research on how other school’s have hammock area’s. After meeting with Jessica Snow, SGA President, we brainstormed on structures and a layout for these hammock stations. I won’t bore you with all the details, but lots of effort and time went into this project as well as meetings and proposals. Now I am thrilled to see student’s excited and using these hammock area’s that promote stress relief and relaxation. So make sure to hammock on!
