Plunge Retreat for First-Year Black Students

The Plunge Retreat is designed to help connect incoming Black students with one another, as well as with other students who have demonstrated an interest in and support for the experience and culture of Black students, and introduce them to the social, spiritual and academic aspects of life under the Dome. Student leaders will share their experiences through talks, and there is time for small group discussions in a warm, welcoming environment. Time is made for games, fun, fellowship to help foster new friendships, and conversations that matter.
