Juggling classes, extracurricular activities or even a part-time job can be exhausting for a college student. However there are many opportunities for young adults to enrich their spirituality and relationship with God.

The Spring retreat will ask students to slow down from the busy schedule college brings and have them step into an environment that will not only be a relaxing time for fellowship, but also spiritually rejuvenating.

“We basically take the college student out of the college environment. We ask them not to bring anything to work on, any distractions: cell phones, computers, anything that might get in the way of hearing God’s voice. These things tend to tie us down. While it can be hard to let go, students really appreciate the freedom that being “out of the world” brings them,” said Tony Marco, Associate Campus Minister of UCF’s CCM.
