The Rinker Mountain Retreats are offered each semester, center around a topic on vocational reflection. These free retreats are great opportunities for students to interact with peers, as well as participating faculty and staff, to discuss and explore issues of “calling” in a space away from day-to-day life on campus.  Retreats are often held in the mountains of the South Carolina Upstate or North Carolina.  

The Rinker Mountain Retreat was held on September 21-22, 2018. The theme was Listening. Stay tuned for the next retreat to be held in the spring of 2019.
