Need to get away during spring break? Students can travel to Estes Park with Altitude on March 25 and 26 for the annual leadership retreat.
Through keynote speakers, team building exercises and communication games, students will improve their confidence and learn that communication is not universal.
According to Jessica Tenney, Student Coordinator of Altitude, “It is a really a quick trip, but it is powerful.”
Altitude is a free leadership program run by students. They host events through the semester which allows students to progress their leadership skills, including book club, TED Talks and this leadership retreat.
The retreat is free to students, and students do not need to hold Altitude membership to attend. It involves a trip to the mountains, food, games and activities, all targeted toward advancing leadership skills.
However, Altitude does ask that students provide a 20-dollar deposit to ensure attendance, but after the weekend is over, students receive a refund.
“This is for students to develop their leadership skills. Employers are saying students graduate from college with these amazing skills but they don’t have leadership or team-building skills needed to be successful.” Tenney said. The retreat aims to provide students with the leadership skills that many lack.
There are about 40 spots left for the retreat, so students interested in participating should stop by the Student Organization Center for an application, or fill one out online before the Friday deadline.
The leadership retreat is for bold students who want to market themselves for future opportunities by becoming better leaders.
