First-Year Commuter Retreat

Date: Saturday, August 19, 2023
Departure: 7 a.m.
Return to Campus: 11 p.m.

During this one-day experience for first-year commuter students, hosted in our Nation’s Capital, you’ll get away with other commuters, reflect on your aspirations for your collegiate career, and lay the foundations for your development during your first year in college.

The First-Year Commuter retreat is intentionally scheduled to leverage the pivotal time just before classes begin to create a context in which you can form friendships that will support your transition to college and your development as a student.
