The three-day, two-night Onboard retreat is led by returning student leaders and is designed to bring incoming  students together before the fall semester. Onboard allows students to create new friendships, address common transitional concerns, and learn about different opportunities at Endicott. Each retreat has a specific focus area that students may already be connected with or want to learn more about. The cost for the retreat is $150.

All Onboard retreats will offer students the opportunity to connect with other students, set personal goals for the fall semester, learn more about the campus community, and have fun! Each theme has different activities throughout the weekend, which are listed below.
