Fall Retreat is a place where you can connect with God and others, where you can take a next step in your spiritual journey no matter where you're at right now. It's a great weekend away from the city. Come enjoy the outdoors of Lake Winnipesaukee in New Hampshire with a bunch of us from MIT, as well as college students from all over Boston. It will be a time to focus on God and make some great friendships. We'll hear from a great speaker during the weekend, and we'll enjoy a great band leading us in worshiping God.
You will also have time to relax and enjoy getting to know one another. Fun stuff like kayaking, sailing, hiking, sports, and the CAMPUS OLYMPICS will be awaiting you. And there is always an MIT PSET party as well, for anyone who needs to study.
