The Jesuit University Ministry Preview (JUMP) retreat takes place each July, just prior to the start of orientation for first year medical students. This overnight retreat is co-facilitated by second year medical students who deliver short talks and lead small groups on topics that prepare participants for their first year of medical school. There is a generous amount of intentional free time for outdoor activities, walking, relaxing, reflection, and bonding with fellow M1s. Past participants highly rate the experience as a great way to start your time at Stritch! Here's what a few of them had to say:

“It makes starting medical school so much less daunting and provides more than just a familiar face - you start to build a family."

“It was a great way to meet classmates before orientation and helped calm my nerves.”

“It is inviting to people of all faiths.” 

“What I enjoyed most was getting to reflect on the upcoming year and meet my future classmates. Also, it was great getting to talk to M2s.”
