Walter E. Hope 1901 Halftime Retreat

The Walter E. Hope 1901 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 Wintersession! All meals, lodging and transportation are included. 
  • Time and Location - Halftime is offered each year during Wintersession. The program will begin with an on-campus kickoff dinner on Monday, January 22nd. Participants will depart campus on the next day, Tuesday, January 23rd, around noon and will return to campus on Thursday afternoon, January 25th. The Halftime Retreat will be held at the Stony Point Center, off-site retreat center located in Stony Point, NY, which is about 1.5 hours away from campus.
