Weekend in the Mountains is a weekend retreat geared toward new international students. Scholars, and spouses of students or scholars, are welcome but are not the primary focus of this retreat. Returning attendees and INTO students are also welcome, if space allows. Children are not allowed at this event.

This unique program takes participants to the CSU Mountain Campus for a weekend of bonding and intercultural activities. Activities include small group discussions, hiking outdoors, a cultural talent show, and more. Many remember this as a highlight of their time at CSU!

Last Fall, about 110 students from 31 countries attended the retreat. Activities change each year, but they always focus on a few primary goals: Culture, Community, and Colorado. We hope you’ll  develop tools to help your cultural transition to the US, while building relationships with new friends from all over the world in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.

Favorite activities include:

  • Walking through the beautiful fall landscape of the Rocky Mountains
  • Bonding with new friends from all over the world
  • Performing in the International Talent Show
  • Participating in the low ropes course
