On April 20-21, 2012 students and faculty participated in the political science department's first retreat. The retreat was held at Calvin's Camp Waltman Lake. It gave the students and faculty an opportunity to interact with each other in a less formal setting than a classroom. Besides relaxing, the group participated in games, food, and a more formal discussion of the New York Times "Life Advice" articles, a series of reflections written by elderly people looking back on their life stories. Enjoy the pictures from the retreat.
