Fall 2010 Freshman Retreat

Fall Freshman Retreat: The retreat was designed to build and strengthen the honors community at Texas State. It included various workshops, a time for play, and a talent show. The retreat incorporated ideas from this year's Common Experience theme of sustainability.

HSA coordinated the morning icebreakers with the freshmen.  Students made collages inspired by a Walt Whitman poem in Dr. Heather Galloway and Professor Diann McCabe's workshop.  Dr. Steve Zinkgraf and Professor John Hood hosted a Shakespearan swordfighting workshop, which gave students the opportunity to hurl Shakespearean insults and one another while swordfighting.  HSA inspired students to imagine their own honors courses and share it with others.

When: Saturday, 10 October, 1:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Where: Honors Coffee Forum, Lampasas Hall
