JUMP Retreat

Stritch Class of 2023: The retreat is full but we are taking names for the WAITING LIST.

Wednesday, July 24 at 10:30am, to Thursday, July 25 at 5:00pm

A non-refundable, $30 fee is charged for each participant. Students registering on/after June 24 will be placed on the waiting list and will NOT owe a fee unless they are contacted by Ministry and offered a place on the retreat.

*Space is limited, and registration is first-come, first-served. After spots are filled, we will begin a waiting list.

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.” 



M2 Stritch Class Retreat

Made possible through a special donation by the Stritch School of Medicine Class of 2019 class gift, all M2 students of the Class of 2021 are encouraged to register for their class retreat. Our purpose will be to build community, rest, reflect or pray, share experiences, and re-center amidst the particularities that M2 year brings.

The retreat will take place Saturday, September 28, with the option to stay overnight on Friday, September 27. Overnight attendees will need to arrive at the retreat center between 6-8pm. Saturday's portion of the retreat will begin with breakfast and end after an evening meal together.

Cost: $25 - if you are in need of financial assistance, please speak with one of the Chaplains as cost should not be a barrier to attendance.

Register online before August 30 to reserve your place. Payment is due by September 3.
