  16. What should our SG training retreat include?
    Summary: I am trying to plan a four day long SGA orientation that will take place the week before the academic year starts. There will be about 15 students at this orientation, and I was wondering what some good activities or discussions would be during this orientation. Already at this orientation I am planning to have members of the administration come and meet with us, including the president, the head of dining services, etc. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for what we can do at this orientation to get the most out of it to promote leadership, character building, and to help introduce and bring the SGA members together. In addition, I want to use this orientation for the members of SGA to start brainstorming projects and ways to improve during the year, and to get a jump start on all of this before school begins.
