The formal scientific component of the retreat includes a distinguished guest speaker, faculty, postdoc and student talks, and several poster sessions. Informal components of the retreat include casual scientific discussions, a student-hosted dinner for the guest speaker, highly anticipated student and faculty skits, live music, and heavy socializing.

The retreat is a student-organized event: fourth year students take the lead role in planning the retreat and, with input from the entire student body, select a speaker, choose the venue, and decide important aspects of the scientific and social planning.

Registration will close August 31, 2019. Please make sure to fill in roommate requests upon registration.
