Search Retreats

Join Campus Ministry for one of our Search Retreats! Search gives students the opportunity to explore themselves and their sense of the sacred in the context of community. Though the retreat's 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. 


Applications are now live to lead Winter Search Retreat! Search Retreat leadership is open to all students who have either (a) attended Search at Seattle U or (b) completed their first year at SU and attended a similar retreat in high school. If Search was meaningful for you, we would love for you to apply on ConnectSU. A small stipend is available for Pell eligible and undocumented students. Questions? Contact Stevi Hamill at

Registration for our Winter Quarter Search Retreat will be open in January. Check back then!

  • Choose from two retreat weekends in 2023: February 24-26 and May 5-7.
  • Buses will leave after Friday classes and return Sunday afternoon.
  • The fee to attend Search is $30, and financial assistance is available.
  • Don't forget to join our ConnectSU community and follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for updates on Search, as well as other exciting opportunities to be involved in Campus Ministry.

For more information, including information on financial assistance, please contact Stevi Hamill, Campus Minister for Retreats, at or (206) 296-5731.

I have realized how loved I am, which is something that I will hold close to my heart when I'm feeling low or down.
