Freshman Retreat

Join us for our Freshman Retreat before Orientation!

Students at the Freshman Retreat

You’ll have the opportunity to connect with your future classmates and friends and make lasting memories before Orientation even begins.

The Freshman Retreat is open to all first year students (including students coming from early college, transfer students and those with less than 18 credit hours). We’ll introduce you to members of your new Catawba family, our culture & values, help prepare you for college life, and assist you in reflecting on your own vocational discernment.

Sponsored by The Lilly Center Freshman Retreat is held at the gorgeous Black Lake Retreat Center.

We have two sessions for you to choose from:

  • June 20-22
  • August 7-9

There is no cost to participants!

The cost of the retreat has been underwritten by The Lilly Center for Vocational and Values at Catawba College, made possible by a grant from the Lilly Endowment. NOTE: Advance notice must be given of your inability to attend the retreat. Not doing so will result in a $50 fee charged to your student account.
