Weekend in the Mountains

This program is currently canceled until further notice.


Weekend in the Mountains is a unique program, geared toward new international students, that takes participants to the CSU Mountain Campus for a weekend of bonding and intercultural activities. Scholars, and spouses of students or scholars, are also welcome. Returning attendees are welcome, if space allows. Children are not allowed at this event.

Last Fall, about 110 students from 31 countries attended the retreat. Activities change each year, but they always focus on a few primary goals: Culture, Community, and Colorado. We hope you’ll  develop tools to help your cultural transition to the US, while building relationships with new friends from all over the world in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.

Favorite activities include:

  • Walking through the beautiful fall landscape of the Rocky Mountains
  • Bonding with new friends from all over the world
  • Participating in the low ropes course

*Please note, we will be verifying participants’ status, so please review and choose the correct option from below*

Cost includes 4 meals, snacks, lodging, transportation, and activities (Full cost of event is $125/person, the Office of International Programs pays the additional difference per person).

Cancellations made after September 5 will NOT be eligible for a refund. Cancellations made by September 4 will receive a refund if the spot can be filled from the wait list.
