FYRE (First Year Retreat Experience) is a retreat exclusively for first year students at CSB/SJU that opens the doors to the faith community at the colleges. Through discussion and testimonials, first years are able to address their faith lives and relationship with God in the context of college. First years explore their identities during the transition into college and examine how God fits into their changing lives. FYRE provides first years a community of their peers with whom they can rely on throughout this process.
What Previous Retreatants Had to Say About FYRE
It was awesome! It helped affirm and build up my faith while giving me a chance to meet others. Also provided me with an opportunity to leave all the distractions of campus life.
