Connect Retreat



Saturday,September 23, 2017

You’ve made it through your first tests, joined a few clubs, and figured out your meal plan (more or less). So what’s next?

Try the Connect retreat, an opportunity to step back and consider these questions and more:

Whether your semester so far has been smooth sailing or a real struggle, Connect is a place to think it over and move forward.

It’s also a place to build an expanded community of other students asking big questions and searching for answers. With both fellow retreatants and older student leaders ready to share their own struggles and growth, you can expect to end the day with new companions for your journey.

Don’t sit this one out. Instead, Connect.

Open to:

All new students at Marquette, both first year students and recent transfer students.


Straz Tower, 915 W. Wisconsin Ave.

A hidden gem on Marquette’s campus, Straz Tower is home to several meeting spaces, a chapel, and a full kitchen. You can expect all the amenities of a normal retreat center (including never-ending snacks and sweets) right here on campus.


Meet in Straz Tower at 9:00 am. The retreat will end at 4:00pm.


$10, which covers lunch, snacks, and retreat supplies. Financial assistance is available; contact Sara Knutson for more information.
