Spring Leadership Retreat

A Graduate School/Career Trip You Don’t Want to Miss! Save the date for a Graduate school visit to the University of Minnesota on Friday, March 27th (Please note the date has changed). You will have the opportunity to meet with the Graduate School as well as faculty in your field of interest. Get all of your questions about Graduate School answered! If you are a health major, we have something for you too! Following the general session about Graduate School, you will have the opportunity to visit Fairview Medical Center where you will be able to talk with professionals in your prospective fields and possibly job shadow. Following the U of M visit, we’re tentatively planning to enjoy a dinner at one of Minneapolis’ finest restaurants and a play at the Guthrie theatre, A Raisin in the Sun! “A Raisin in the Sun opened on Broadway in 1959 and for the first time hailed an all-black principal cast, a black playwright and a black director. It was nominated for four Tony Awards. 2009 marks the 50th anniversary of the inspiring classic about a working class black family struggling to make it in America.” The tentative schedule is to leave Mankato around 10 am and return around midnight. The deadline for sign up will be Friday, February 27th and there will be a $25 deposit required when you sign up which will be refunded when you arrive on March 27th. You will also be asked to list your area of interest for the Graduate School visit. Contact Marie or Linda with any questions!


Are you interested in an overnight Leadership Retreat Spring Semester in the Twin Cities?  We will leave on a Friday afternoon/evening and return Saturday evening. 

 This is a Great Resume Building Opportunity: We will be presenting (as a group) to middle school and high school students at TRiO Day! 

The topic is open for discussion…we will work together!

Many other fun activities will be included as well!
