Should we have our SG retreats off campus?

Q. Should we have our SG retreats off campus?
A. ASGA answers...

You don't have to.

You can have your retreat on campus, using your institution's facilities. It will almost always cost less than using a hotel, conference center, or wilderness retreat facility.

Having a retreat on campus isn't very "exciting" to your officers and members. Hosting your retreat off-campus brings a level of fun that student governments need. Being off-campus can lead to very positive team-building. Members can get to know each other better through the travel to and from the retreat.

If you have an overnight retreat, there is more opportunity to learn about each other, brainstorm, plan, share concerns and ideas, and build your team and develop camaraderie.
American Student Government Association
