("tackle") someone is to tag them.
No skills required except for having fun! Everything you need to know can
be explained in 5 minutes flat. Meet at the Rugby field at the Intramurals

From a student on Semester at Sea
"Honestly, everyday is an amazing experience with this voyage. The most
unique part is that everything we learn in class we see it acted out in
real life the next day. We are constantly learning! Some of the neatest
experiences I've had are staying at a traditional Japanese hotel where you
eat dinner in a kimono, sleep on futons and bathe in public baths, and
doing Tai Chi on the waterfront in Hong Kong."
From a student studying in Cork, Ireland
"Visiting castles which date all the way back to the 11th century has been
absolutely amazing. Attempting to imagine what life was like back in 1075
at the Rock of Cashel is fascinating; seeing the narrow "windows" designed
for arches in enemy attacks and just the overwhelming size of the castles
