The 2013 Global Scholars Fall retreat will take place on October 18-19 at Post Oak Lodge. During the retreat, first year TUGS students will be introduced to the “big ideas” that are a focus of the program. They will also have the opportunity to get to know classmates in the program as well as faculty affiliated with TUGS.
What will happen at the retreat?
The weekend will include a dinner on Friday night, followed by a bonfire. Saturday morning will start out with orienteering, an activity that involves working together to navigate unfamiliar surroundings. After lunch, Scott Aughenbaugh from the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) will lead the group in a workshop addressing some of the biggest issues facing the world in the next decades. Following the workshop students will learn from local experts how these global issues affect the Tulsa community.
