Students from the Meijer Honors College taught arctic games to the campus community November 22 near the Cook Carillon Tower.

Games include the musk ox wrestle, harpooning, blanket toss and high kick. The Honors College seminar course is taught by John Kilbourne, professor of movement science.

Students spent the semester reseraching games of the Inuit (eastern Arctic region of Canada) and Saami (Scandinavia) people. Live reindeer completed the arctic scene.
