2020-2021 ESCAPE Retreats

ESCAPE is a first-year transition and reflection program designed to create a space for students to get to know their classmates and engage in conversation about the journey of college. Small groups, led by upper class mentors, foster a sense of meaning and belonging throughout the retreat as well as the rest of your Georgetown career.

A three-part experience, this retreat is designed as an escape from the virtual Hilltop. ESCAPE is accessible to people of all religious and non-religious backgrounds and reflection is a central part of the retreat experience. There will be talks from upper class team leaders and a faculty or staff member, followed by individual and small group reflection. Students reflect on the person they were before they became Georgetown students and who they want to be as members of the Georgetown community and beyond. There will be free time, time away from your screen, breaks, games, music, and more!

We are offering six different retreats this semester, one specifically for transfer students. Each retreat consists of three meeting times that take place over Zoom (all times are ET): 

1) Friday, 6:30-9 PM 
2) Saturday, 1-4 PM 
3) Sunday, 1-4 PM 

Attending all three sessions is important and will qualify you to be matched up with an ESCAPE alumni mentor. There will be opt-in opportunities (yoga, meditation, movie night, etc.) offered over the course of the weekend if you’d like to join those too! Sign up for your weekend now (new window)! The retreat Zoom link and other information will be shared with everyone who registered during the week leading up to the retreat.
