Why should I go on Freshman Retreat?

  • It's a chance for you to meet a ton of your classmates (your new friends!) in a fun, relaxed setting
  • A beautiful weekend on the Chesapeake!
  • This is the weekend where you get to plan what path you want to take for the next four years - to plan who you want to become

Date: Friday, Sept. 8 (6 PM) - Sunday, Sept. 10 (3 PM)
Location: North East, MD (about 90 minutes from campus)
