Orientation Retreats

New Resident Orientation Retreats

New Resident Orientation Retreats traditionally are two-day retreats designed to welcome residents into I-House's unique global community through cultural exchange, group activities and intercultural skill-building.

The retreat has three simple goals: 1) to have fun, 2) to make friends, and 3) to learn how to make the most of the I-House experience. To help residents prepare, a packing list and agenda will be shared with all participants ahead of the retreat.
