It’s about breaking away from the stress or pressures of school and step back to reevaluate yourself. You get the chance to really ask yourself if you’re on the right path, are you enjoying college, are you who you want to be, what’s going on in your life right now, what’s distracting you, what’s motivating you, what isn’t motivating you, are you surrounding yourself with the right people, are you developing from your high school self, and are you living to be the person people expect you to be or who you expect you to be? It gives you the chance to say that even though you’re not the person everyone, including yourself, expects you to be, you’re still good; you’re still valued, wonderful, and are somebody. That you have worth. . .This retreat is extremely valuable and an essential component to your success at Spring Hill College.

I would definitely recommend attending the retreat. It gave me a chance to get off campus, clear my mind, and really reflect on who I am and where I want to go. It was the first time all semester that I truly spent time working to improve myself.
