The freshmen leadership retreat is intended for all new freshmen officers who are elected during the fall semester, usually in September. The new officers, including the president, vice president, treasurer, and other elected positions like Cornhuskin’ co-chair and honor council representative participate in a retreat session.
The retreat has several objectives. It allows officers to meet each other, since as freshmen they haven’t yet become acquainted. They learn to establish relationships, build trust, and work as a team. The retreat also prepares the leaders to go back to their organizations better equipped to accomplish their goals. The retreat is offered once a year, usually in October, and we strongly encourage all new leaders to attend.
