Students enjoyed an ice-breaker activity at the New Student Retreat.

Campus Ministry sponsors an annual New Student Retreat to share our Lasallian Catholic heritage and identity, and to help create a transformational residential life experience. Almost 60 students participated in the retreat at Camp Ehawee in Mindoro, Wis., focused on building community and laying a foundation for a successful college experience.

Students strengthened their connection to each other and the Saint Mary’s community through the retreat, exploring topics such as overcoming obstacles, making good choices, the gift of solitude, and balancing life. Time was also taken for prayer and personal reflection.
