SOLR is an annual retreat that challenges student leaders to identify their strengths and develop a leadership skill set built on a foundation of personal, organizational and community values. It is available to students of any classification and experience-level. Since 2010, more than 700 student leaders have benefited from SOLR. The admission fee of $25 nets you $300+ worth of value including: transportation, lodging, meals, giveaways, amenities (indoor pool, zip-line, high ropes course, and more), and 20+ hours of quality leadership training.
