Privateer Camp

July 29 - July 31

The out-of-town camp is a three day, two night, off-campus freshmen leadership retreat collaboratively planned through the Division of Student Affairs and Office of Enrollment Services. It is located at a retreat center 2.5 hours from New Orleans. During this retreat, incoming students learn about the wide range of involvement activities and resources that the university offers. Most importantly, incoming students will learn key strategies on how to enhance their leadership skills and successfully transition into the college environment. This three day retreat will be packed with ice breakers, team-building activities, student panels and workshops focusing on UNO traditions, major exploration, personal leadership styles, team-dynamics, cultural competency, conflict resolution and the college transition, all led by student staff or “Krewe Leaders.”

Cost: $75


Future Privateers attend fun and interactive workshops where they learn about things like the history of the University, tips on succeeding in college, and the New Orleans community. These workshops are led by the different student counselors, or "Krewe Leaders."

Topics include:

- Getting involved
- Leadership styles

Throughout the day will be icebreakers, team-building activities, Krewe Olympics, and outdoor activities including: swimming, pedal boating, and much more! At night, there will be dance mixers, camp fires, games, and much more!
