On Thursday, August 21st the College of Humanities & Social Sciences is holding its annual Back to School Retreat for all fulltime faculty and staff up at the Wasatch Campus in Heber City. The retreat begins at 8:30 with a continental breakfast. Departments then get a chance to break away and have some time for planning. During the break for lunch we will have visitors from all over campus come speak with us about how they can help, and we will provide a photographer if you are looking to update your professional page. The afternoon offers another opportunity for department break outs.
The Wasatch Campus is located along Highway 40 just north of Heber City. Click here for directions. This is a great opportunity to reconnect with colleagues before the start of the school year, and the views from campus are always worth the drive.
