Special Gatherings

Women in the Academy and Professions will host a gathering during lunch on Saturday. Students are welcome to come and share their experiences as women in the university (and men are also welcome to come and listen). There will be delicious treats and a lively discussion about following Jesus uniquely as women in the university.

Would you like to host a special interest gathering for humanities students, international students, healthcare students, or whatever your “corner” of campus may be? You can sign up to host a gathering during free time or during meals once you arrive at the retreat.

Book Table

An InterVarsity Press book table will be available with books to purchase at the conference and take home with you.


There will be free time during the retreat! We hope you enjoy a little rest and a lot of fun at the Retreat Center in Cedar Lake, IN. Click here to view our 2020 retreat schedule for an overview of what to expect at the conference.
