In 2014-2015, the SYE featured two Sophomore Retreats at Allenberry Resort. One was held in September 2014 and one in February 2015. The retreats are off-campus weekend events where we use the Strengths Finder Inventory to help you discern your key strengths and how you can best utilize those strengths in pursuit of your major, your minor, and your career goals.
After attending the Sophomore Year Retreat, Irene Snyder, was inspired to make a difference in the lives of others. Irene is a member of the Class of 2017 and is a Mass Communications major and Sociology minor as well as the programming director of ECTV-40. Irene has partnered up with the Carter Bowman Foundation to create a toy drive that will provide games for child and teen cancer patients. Instead of just toys in general, the drive includes board games, “to go” games, and card games that children can play with nurses, visitors, friends, and family. For more information about the project, visit the Etown Toy Drive facebook page. Please consider donating - tables will be reserved in Brossman Commons for the toy collection from April 7 - April 10, 2015. Help bring a little bit of fun to those going through a rough time!
In 2015-2016, the SYE will feature at least one retreat. More details coming soon!
