ROTC Rappel Day

This story is part of a series: GoPro Campus Tour Series

Tired of taking the stairs? Follow Eastern’s ROTC program as they rappel down the side of Klehm Hall.

As Karina Lopez, an Eastern cadet, framed the exercise, rappelling is less about physical skill as it is about trusting your partners. “You’re not going to hurt yourself," Lopez said."They got you — I trust all my people here.”
