Freshmen Retreat

The freshmen retreat is an optional event held in September, open to students of all faith backgrounds. The retreat is designed to help new ROTC students get to know cadets and midshipmen from all three military branches (Army, Navy, and Air Force) on campus and provide a relaxed opportunity for reflection on starting college and ROTC. Cadets consider how to hear God’s call and are given opportunities to deepen their discernment through prayer (i.e. personal reflection time, Eucharistic Adoration, Liturgy of the Hours, and Mass).
