What is Connect?

Early in the fall semester, we invite all first-year students to participate in “Connect,” an on-campus day retreat that introduces them to Campus Ministry offerings through an afternoon and evening of fun activities, small group conversations, keynote speakers, and more. Freshmen will find a space to reflect on their hopes for growing in faith, begin building community with their classmates, and get to know some of the programs with which they can become involved while in college. We encourage students of all faith backgrounds to attend.

Transfer students interested in learning about ways to connect are also welcome!

If you have any questions, please contact Annie Boyle at or 503.943.7889.
