New Student Retreat

This retreat gives first year and transfer students the chance 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.

Ignatian Silent Retreat

The retreat takes place at the Palisades Retreat Center, a beautiful setting overlooking the Puget Sound. Students will have their own private room and bathroom, as well as access to the scenic natural surroundings, a labyrinth, a library, and other contemplative spaces and resources in and around the retreat center. During the retreat, students are exposed to diverse forms of prayer, practical discernment techniques, and other elements of Ignatian Spirituality to support their spiritual life.

Search Retreat

Search gives students the opportunity to explore themselves and their sense of the sacred in the context of community. Though the retreats roots are in the Christian tradition, students of all faith and non-faith backgrounds are welcome to attend and encouraged to show up as they are.
