Halftime Retreat

The Halftime Retreat is an opportunity for sophomores to form deeper connections with their classmates and to reflect upon their Princeton experience thus far. Guided workshops help students reflect upon their experiences, interests, and the future. Students are able to enjoy conversations with each other about making decisions, setting goals, and balancing priorities. Our goal is to help students create deeper connections with other sophomores and develop a clearer understanding of self. 

  • Cost Halftime is a free three-day, two-night getaway plus an on-campus pre-retreat dinner during Intersession! All meals, lodging and transportation are included. 
  • Time and Location Halftime will be offered the first weekend of Intersession. The program will begin with an on-campus kickoff dinner on Friday. Participants will depart campus on the next day, Saturday, at noon and will return to campus on Monday around 5pm. The Halftime program will be held at an off-site retreat center within 2 hours of campus. 
  • Interest Form Students who are interested in attending the Halftime Retreat will be asked to complete an interest form. Reservations are on a “first come, first served” basis. While we work to accommodate everyone who is interested, space is limited due to the capacity of the retreat center. Please contact Claire Pinciaro, Leadership Program Coordinator, with any questions.
