Return from Abroad Retreat (Multi-Day Event)
End Time 1:00 PM

Coming home from an off-campus study program or doing research in another country often means struggling to get back into the swing of things. Adjustments to lifestyle, return to academic rigor and change in many can be challenging. The Return from Abroad Retreat was established to help WU students through transitions like this - making meaning of their experiences, helping them place their abroad experiences in the context of their lives back home, and helping them learn what they have to teach each student about him/herself. The goal of this retreat is engaging together with good food, good company, and a relaxing time away from the busy pace of WU life. Willamette students returning from off-campus study/research programs will help each other process and reflect on their abroad experience and what it means for each of them. (The off-campus study/research program does not have to be one sponsored by WU.) For more information about this free retreat, please contact Career Services on the third floor of the University Center or email career-services@willamette.edu. If you email, please be sure to put "Returner Retreat" in the subject heading.

Imbolc


Imbolc (also called Imbolg or Candlemas) is one of the four major holidays of Wicca. Imbolc marks the growth of the God into a strong boy as the days grow longer and the sun gets stronger. It also marks the recovery of the Goddess from giving birth to the God. It is a time of initiation, a beginning, as seeds begin to wake from their winter sleep. Traditionally many initiation rituals and self-dedication rituals are held at this time.

Whiting Tennis is a Seattle-based mixed media artist who merges interests in folk and Pop art with surrealism in his artworks, which include paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, and collages. Often derived from doodles and automatic drawings, his art combines Western landscapes, lonely forms, and dilapidated buildings to create a distinctly American narrative. Organized by Collection Curator Jonathan Bucci, the exhibition will feature a range of work from the past 10 years.
