Every Semester the Honours College students take a retreat. The retreat is aimed at helping student refocus on their calling into the community of learning and to God's purpose for the world. During the retreats, a mentor - usually a Christian leader in community is invited to facilitate exploration of issues of interest with the students at the plenary. Following the address by the mentor, students break into discussion groups to explore further issues raised in the plenary. Specifically, these retreats seek to:


Challenge the students to focus on the purpose of their calling into the Honours College while at the same time making a positive impact in the world with the work they are doing. Their work should act as an inspiration to others and also energize them to succeed.


Identify and address challenges that suffocate students' academic and career preparation. These challenges should reveal essential skills that are important for students develop if they want to increase their chances of making it in the university and beyond.


Explore ways to help students transform these challenges to opportunities for personal growth and development in pursuance of their academic and career paths. Focus then should be placed on students' educational advancement and occupational preparation.


Hold students accountable to God and to be in constant search for God's purpose for their career life. It is hoped that this ultimately will generate a cadre of leaders of integrity whose faith informs their profession. This sense of calling goes beyond a profession.
