Building a Spiritual Community
Campus Ministry's retreat programs offer a time to unplug from the many distractions of life and refocus your heart and mind on your spiritual journey.
Whether your idea of getting away is finding a quiet, wooded spot for personal prayer or practicing yoga and meditation, there's something for everyone: incoming freshmen, graduating seniors, those wishing to experience one-on-one spiritual guidance or those looking to meet new people.
The Freshmen Escape is a chance to take time out and reflect on your experiences during a weekend led by upperclassmen. You'll meet new friends, discuss issues of college life, explore your faith, and hang out and relax.
The Escape was held September 17-19, 2021. For more information, contact the Retreat Program Coordinator Bella Silva.
