At the start of each semester, our BBA Orientation Retreat gives our incoming students a seamless educational experience — one that is informative, fun and memorable. We believe that Orientation makes a substantial impact on welcoming and connecting new students as they transition to the Goizueta Business School — a time in which basic habits are formed that influence their academic success and personal growth.
Our goals for Orientation are to introduce you to academic life within the business school, begin conversations about important community values, give you the time and information needed to feel at home and introduce you to the individuals and resources that you will need to be successful in our program.
To accomplish these goals, Orientation is an off campus two day event that combines and academic and resource overview with team building and experiential leadership programming to give you the foundation you need at the start of our program.
During these two days, you will be exposed to a full schedule of adventure learning experiences structured to increase community, enhance leadership, and encourage team building skills.
Each January, the BBA Program Office invites enrolled BBA students to complete a PE credit toward graduation requirements by participating in the BBA Ski Trip. The annual ski trip is held in Blowing Rock, North Carolina and is geared towards all levels of experience.
You can learn to ski or to snowboard, and fully 1/3 of all participants are new to their sport of choice. During the three days of instruction and practice, you will learn the fundamentals of what may turn into a life-long passion.
