Leaven: Incoming Students Retreat

Leaven 2020

During Leaven, I became comfortable and grew to love the new place I would call home, and I discovered all the ways I could be involved on campus while living out my faith.
- Kayla Garchar, Class of 2019

Save the date: Leaven 2021 will take place July 26-29!

Please note: We hope to host Leaven 2021 on campus, but plans are subject to change based on Covid-19 safety protocol. If unable to host an event in person, we will offer a virtual opportunity.

What can you expect?

  • Connect with incoming students and current student leaders involved in Campus Ministry
  • Learn about ways to engage in your life of faith while in college
  • Hear from current students about their experiences with transitioning to college, building a community, and growing in faith
  • Reflect in small groups, enjoy fun activities, spend time in prayer, and look forward to the new semester together
