Marshall University Cru is sponsoring its annual fall retreat, the theme of which is based on the reality game show “Survivor,” Sept. 28 -30 at Camp Caleb in Flatgap, Kentucky. 

Event organizer Rachel Handley said students who wish to attend can expect a nice break from school before midterms.

“We host fall retreat to get away from campus before midterms, because we all need a break,” Handley said. 

She said attendees can look forward to three days full of games and other challenges centered around the event’s “Survivor” theme. 

While Cru is a Christian-based organization, Handley said no one should let that stop them from wanting to attend fall retreat. 

“Fall retreat is all about building friendships and getting to know each other,” Handley said. “We’re not going to pressure you into committing to our faith or anything. Just come if you want to hang out.”

Handley attended the event last year for the first time, and she said she loved the friendship aspect of fall retreat. 

“It was a mind blowing experience,” Handley said. “I went into the weekend not knowing anything about fall retreat, and it was so open and welcoming.” 

Wesley Dickenson, a sophomore biochemistry major, said she had a similar experience at last year’s fall retreat.

“I rode there in a car full of total strangers last year,” Dickenson said. “Now I’m best friends and roommates with one of the people I rode to Camp Caleb with.” 

Fall retreat costs $45 for upperclassmen to attend, $25 for first-year students, and scholarships are available.

Marshall Cru meets every Thursday night at 9:09 p.m. in the basement of the Memorial Student Center.
