Graham Sustainability Institute

Co-Curricular Activities

StudentsBesides the coursework, scholars participate in a variety of activities together outside of class, including:

  • Fall Retreat: Please reserve this on your calendar: the last Tuesday and Wednesday of August.
  • Participation in the Graham Scholars Program officially begins with the Fall Retreat and all junior scholars are expected to attend. The agenda is packed with discussion, outdoor activities and team-building among the cohort, including a vegetarian dinner cook-off competition (photo from the competition, right).
