Intercultural Community Weekend
The Intercultural Community Weekend (ICW) is an overnight retreat in which College Nine students begin to explore the College Nine theme with the purpose of gaining a deeper understanding of International and Global Perspectives. Students will be given the opportunity to learn more about themselves and others, as well as develop intercultural awareness.

The retreat will be held on January 27th - 28th, 2018. Students will depart the morning of Saturday, January 27th and return mid-afternoon on Sunday, January 28th. Accommodations and meals will be provided. Students will be asked to bring a sleeping bag and/or other bedding.

Due to the number of available spaces, only approximately 25 students will be accepted. Priority will be given to College Nine students, to students who have not attended ICW in previous years, and to students who can demonstrate a future investment in the College Nine Community. The selection committee will work to ensure that the retreat participants reflect the diversity of College Nine.

The priority application deadline is Sunday, December 3rd.
After this priority deadline applications are still highly encouraged and will be reviewed on a rolling basis.

Retreat Preparation: Cultural Artifact
If selected to attend ICW, you will be asked to bring a Cultural Artifact to share with the group and describe its meaning. This would be any item that you feel represents you or one of the cultures you identify with, that you would be willing to share with the group. Past examples include: portable musical instruments, clothing/accessories, photographs, jewelry, artwork, religious relics, etc.

Given the short time between being selected as a participant and actually attending the retreat, we encourage you to consider what item you might want to bring, so you can get it and have it ready in the event you are selected to attend.
