Senate plans All-Campus Off-Campus Retreat

FOR RELEASE
2006-09-09
Huntington, Ind.—Huntington University students will enjoy the All-Campus Off-Campus Retreat once again this fall. The retreat is scheduled for Sept. 29 through Oct. 1. Camp Crosley in North Webster, Ind., will play host for the retreat, now in its third year.

ACOC, an annual event sponsored by Student Senate, gives both freshmen and upper classmen a chance to meet and reconnect.

“New students will be able to lay a strong foundation for their careers at HU, while returning students can bond with new students and interact with others they may not normally see,” said Student Senate President Justin Miller.

Camp Crosley proved to be a prime location for the retreat the past two years because of its space and distance from Huntington University. Located on Lake Tippecanoe, the camp offers a scenic haven perfect for group retreats.

“There is plenty of space to spread out, and based on the response from last year, it seemed like a good choice for this year also,” Miller said. There were 100 students who attended the first retreat and 110 last year.

Activities that are planned for ACOC are centered on building community among the students. Team building activities, campfires, and praise and worship are a few of the events that Student Senate has planned for students.

Students were sent registration forms through e-mail and are asked to sign up in the Habecker Dining Commons or through campus mail. The cost of the event is $10, an amount significantly decreased thanks to combined efforts of the Student Activities Board, Campus Ministries and Senate.
