Retreats & Conferences

New Leaders Retreat
NLR takes place following spring semester finals. New leaders of campus clubs and organizations meet off-site to network, think creatively about campus issues and concerns, and make plans for fall semester. This retreat has led to many new campus programs and collaborative activities. In addition, students take one or more assessments to learn more about their leadership style and abilities and how they can work more effectively with others.
