Annual Retreat

Ocean at sunsetEvery fall, the CBB programs holds a student retreat that is organized by the student committee with assistance from the program coordinator. The retreat is an opportunity for students to learn about each other's research, brainstorm solutions to scientific problems and socialize. All students are expected to attend and participate in planned activities.

2018 Fall Retreat

AGENDA

Students will stay at Place Cottage (a ~5 minute walk from the hotel)

Although the location is different, the schedule will be much like in the past. Friday night we plan to have a potluck dinner at the cottage. CBB will provide the main course and everyone else will be asked to bring a dish to share. A food sign up sheet will be made available about three weeks prior to the retreat. Saturday will include faculty and student presentations, poster sessions, free time, and the banquet dinner. A detailed schedule will be sent out in mid-September.

Students: If you would like to bring a family member and request a hotel room, the extra cost will be your financial responsibility.  
Faculty: The program will pay for ONE night. The second night will be your expense.

Transportation to the retreat will be your responsibility. Please consider carpooling. Contact Liz Labriola if you need help finding a ride.
