46 Foster students and six staff members spent two nights at Camp Huston in Gold Bar, Washington, in late September for the Foster Undergraduate Student Leadership Retreat.
22 business student organizations sent representatives who practiced communication and conflict resolution skills, discussed the impact of diversity, and found ways to collaborate between groups. The students all mastered a low-ropes challenge course and concluded the weekend with an Amazing Race-style scavenger hunt.
The annual event, now it its fourth year, is held the weekend before Autumn classes begin in order for student organizations to better collaborate and communicate with each other during the school year. Business student organizations are required to send two representatives, and those students are tasked with teaching the group about their clubs, and then brining back information and ideas from the retreat to their membership.
