The New Student Fall Retreat (NSFR) is designed for new incoming first year and transfer students from diverse backgrounds. Its goals are to:
- Create an inviting space for new incoming students to connect with diverse UO students, faculty, and staff.
- Develop a strong sense of identity and leadership skills.
- Discover valuable campus resources and opportunities.
- Create strong social and academic networks.
The Student Leadership Team (SLT) are a team of facilitators who support the new students during the retreat in activities, answer questions about college, and help the new students connect to UO. Most of the SLT members are "retreaters" themselves.
