"Greater Than Yourself - The Second Year Experience"

Early Move-In: August 28
Retreat and Welcome Team: August 29-September 1, 2017

University of San Diego
GTY retreat 2014-15

This August, the GTY Leadership Experience will be exclusively offered to second year students. This retreat-like experience is based on Steve Farber's book by the same name. Greater Than Yourself is a free*, four-day program that brings students together to learn leadership concepts and strategies, explore personal awareness and identity, and build campus relationships and alliances. Participants develop their knowledge of self and others, enhance their awareness of intergroup dynamics, and expand their "toolkit" of campus resources and involvement opportunities. Participants are able to return to campus housing early at no additional charge. Move-in day is Monday, August 28th, with the experience occurring August 29-31. Participants will also be members of the USD Welcome Team, greeting and assisting incoming students with the opening of Orientation and move-in day on September 1st. The experience is free to accepted students and includes meals, snacks, early housing, and materials. Participants must commit to the entire retreat experience - no late arrivals or early departures. Failure to do so will result in a charge for early arrival housing on campus. Space is limited. Students can register now.

Participants must commit to the entire experience - no late arrivals or early departures. Registration for the Social Justice Lab is now open and it will close on Friday, February 10th.
