August 14-16


Camp Leatherneck is a three-day leadership retreat for incoming students. This dynamic retreat is designed to help students discover their leadership strengths in order to get involved as a leader immediately at Western Illinois University. The retreat also offers a variety of activities, ranging from outdoor ropes courses to WIU spirit and traditions training.



Camp Leatherneck includes a service learning opportunity within the community in which students will participate as a member of the WIU Move-In Crew for fall opening weekend. Here, students will immediately be able to apply their strengths as a leader at WIU.



By participating in the retreat, students will have the opportunity to connect with 100 of their peers and establish lasting friendships to begin their first year at WIU! These friendships will help students build community with people in their hall and across the University who are also passionate about making the most out of their college experience.
