Alternative Spring Break

Alternative Spring Break (ASB) is an opportunity for students to use their Spring Break to serve those in need rather than themselves.

GENESIS - Freshmen/Transfer Student Retreat

All Freshmen and Transfer Students are invited to enjoy a weekend away with your new friends and prepare yourself spiritually for the year!


Awakening is a widespread, national retreat program for college students that focuses on one of the major attributes of our faith that sometimes, in the busyness of our college lives, we tend to forget: that we as a Church are a community, a family made up of very different and gifted people who need one another, and most of all, need Christ. At Crusader Awakening, students will experience a weekend founded on the reception of the Sacraments of the Eucharist and Reconciliation. Throughout the weekend, peer leaders will address some of the very real issues we deal with in our lives through a series of talks that contain personal testimony, practical advice, and theological reflection that Crusader Awakening has become known for! Retreatants will also participate in group discussions, shared meals, Adoration, praise & worship, skits, and so much more! Are you ready to reinvigorate your relationship with Jesus Christ and His Church?

This retreat is designed to be a brief oasis as seniors prepare for the final sprint to the finish line, a time to reflect upon the years at UD, the relationships formed, and the road that lies ahead.
