See the N.U.B.E Camp website for information on 2009's retreat.
"FreshMeet Retreat" - August 19-20, 2005: The purpose of the "FreshMeet" was to give entering freshman students the opportunity to bond early with their classmates, meet their professors in an informal and relaxed setting over a campfire and to receive some early mentoring from upperclass students. After a first day of information meetings and skits related to college life the freshman got on a bus for a campout at Camp Wakonda (adjacent to Fonetenelle Forest).
