Culture Council

All groups categorized as cultural groups may join. Other groups may join at the discretion of HTC professional staff.

Culture Council Retreat Registration

Student registration for Culture Council Retreat on Friday, September 23 + Saturday, September 24.
  • The Cultural Council Retreat to New Hampshire is a new initiative designed to strengthen the relationships among student leaders and introduce the common ground philosophy to student organizations who may have never considered collaborations before. There are a total of 50 spots available for students; however, no more than four members per organization can attend (we need to mix it up). There is no cost to students. The retreat will begin at 6 pm on Friday, September 23 at the Howard Thurman Center. We will ride by coach bus to Hancock, NH and spend the night in cabins (please bring your own sleeping bag, towel and pillow). The next day will be spent partaking in outdoor games, facilitated discussions and plenty of eating! We will be back to BU on Saturday at 10 pm.
