Students accepted into the Winter 2013 Semester in Detroit program will join program alums on a weekend retreat in Detroit. Count on a city tour, some delicious food, rowdy ice breakers, a service event, and lots of interesting conversation and program information. Please note that this event is required for all accepted students.
The Winter 2013 Cohort will be welcomed into the program and the City of Detroit during the Immersion Weekend. Students will pack up for a weekend of urban gardening service events, outdoor shopping at Eastern Market and local grocery stores, and a few cozy evenings getting to know their peers. Lodging is provided, though students will want to bring a pillow and sleeping bag or blanket, as well as $20-30 dollars in cash for a group event out. Please stay tuned for more details from Associate Director Craig Regester!
