From retreats for students of particular faith backgrounds to retreats focusing on specific interest areas, we hope you are able to find a retreat that meets your needs among our offerings. Many of our retreats depend on student leadership. If you are interested in serving as a leader on a particular retreat, please see our Retreat Leadership page.
Campus Ministry offers a host of core retreat experience to accompany you throughout your journey at SU. While there is no "correct" way to do retreats at SU, if you are looking for guidance about how the different retreats' content might synthesize with your experience at SU, we suggest beginning with New Student Retreat! Whether you attend New Student Retreat or not, Sophomore and Transfer Retreat is a chance for second-year and incoming transfer students to continue to build community, have fun, and reflect! Search Retreat is a great opportunity for any point in your SU experience, making space for retreatants to go deeper. For Juniors and seniors, we suggest attending our Ignatian Silent Retreats.
We encourage you to get creative! Supplement and/or substitute these retreats with some of our special and rotating retreats, and seek out opportunities to lead retreats.
In addition to our regular Core Retreat Experience offerings, Campus Ministry offers a host of rotating and special retreats in response to the particular needs and desires of our students in a given year. Some of our regular and historical rotating and special retreats include:
